Destin, Day 6

Britney, Lindi and I started our day with a trip to Alvin's Island.  It is the tourist shops of all tourist shops.  A little overwhelming.

We bought a few souvenir shirts and some treats for the kids. 

These flip flops were brought for the girls.  Anything princessy works for them.

Beach time!  We've had rain on and off all week, but it hasn't stopped us. 

These two together are just too much.

Love this picture of Britney and Maci.

We had some excellent waves yesterday.  Carter was missing his surf board.

Destin isn't known for surfing.......but yesterday would have been good.

The set up.

Trysten and Carter worked on skim boarding.  No easy feat.

The original Starnes clan.  The rest of us just married into this wacky group.

A future surfer?

Lara has been determined to make friends with Jack - no easy task - but she succeeded! 

He adores her.

Here they are having snowball sand fights.

There are no words on Kellen's cuteness.  It's just too much.

Sunset.  We made it all day.

Finally, kids were in bed.  Isn't that a pretty picture? 

An empty pool with no one screaming.

4 peeps played dominoes and the rest of us watched.

Pa was in rare form.

Everyone was, come to think of it.  Mark busted out a full 5 minute rap by Slick Rick.

There was dancing.

And, lots of love.  By far the most fun night thus far.

OK, Pa.  Not sure what is going on with this.

A little background on this next event.

Mark is terrified of clowns.

So, Lara and Britney snuck in, painted their faces and snuck up on the group.

They kind of looked like clown hookers.  Not sure if there is market for that, but they might be in business.

Get a room, you two!

Pa sung.  Some great beach music and also our wedding song.  Still brings me to tears.

So glad I married this guy.

It's a perfect sunny day for the beach and then we're on a sunset cruise this evening.

Life is good, peeps. 

Hope yall are having a good week.  Can't wait to catch up!

You're in Florida?? So funny! I went to Tybee Island (Georgia) with my mama and sis a couple weeks ago, and wished we had been in Destin the whole time. ;)

Everyone looks adorable and happy!
