Elliotte's First Destin Trip

Mom and I took Elliotte down to Destin for a week for her first beach trip. Well, she never made it to the beach, but she knew it was there! Normally, October is nice and mild in Destin. This year, it was super hot and humid. We didn't get Elliotte out during the day except once because it was just too hot for her. This was a much different beach trip with a baby! They will never be the same again. Elliotte did so well. I can't wait to take her back next summer so she can enjoy the sand and water. I just didn't feel comfortable getting her 10 week old skin in the pool water or taking her out in the hot sun. There's plenty of time for that next year. She was great in the car and only fussed a little. I was worried about the car ride, but she surprised me. Mom and I took turns sitting in the back with her to make sure she was as comfortable as possible being strapped in an uncomfortable seat. We only made it out to eat once, and Elliotte was great again. The staff at Bonefish even commented on how well she did. Shopping was a different story...
Enjoy the pics!
Playing on the floor in the condo. She found a friend in the mirror. Check out her rolls!

Waking up happy from a nap.

Going strolling in her sun hat.

Standing up. Elliotte is loving using her legs. She is very strong!

Out to eat at Bonefish Grill.

Bathing beauty! You can see she was very excited to be at the pool.
She was there all of 15 minutes.

Matching pink swimwear!

Claire and Olivia drove over from Gulf Shores. They were there for Olivia's fall break. We went to eat at Pompano Joe's and swam in the pool.

Nonna, Elliotte, and me.

Olivia and baby Elliotte. Can't believe she's 6 and in first grade! We made Olivia tell us things only first graders know to prove she was that old!

Aunt C and Elliotte.
