This August we went with Nate's family to Florida for his cousin's wedding. We had so much fun and didn't want to come home! We went for a week and pretty much just relaxed the whole time. The weather was perfect for the beach and pool. Tessa absolutely loved the ocean! She wanted to play in the wet sand and have the little waves come up by her the whole day. She went under twice but wanted right back in the action. She would crawl right into the ocean not realizing how deep it was getting and then get soaked. I can't wait until the next time we get to take her to a beach. The wedding was beautiful and so much fun as well. Here are A LOT of pictures to show what a good time we had...

The girls were very good and entertained with the DVD player on the way down even though we were traveling from basically 4:30 am to 4:00 pm! The way home was a little different story for us though. Being on a plane when Tessa is suppose to be sleeping, is not a good idea. I finally got her to go to sleep but when we started our descent into Salt Lake she woke up and didn't know what to do with herself. It was a parents worst nightmare! She just started screaming and didn't stop until I got off the plane 20 minutes later! Of course I couldn't stand up with her or walk her around since we were descending. On top of that it was 11:30 pm so everyone on the plane was trying to sleep! People were really nice and understanding though. I just hope that never happens again.

Tessa was prepping for her own birthday cake soon

Here are a bunch of fun beach pictures that Bobbie took

I love this picture of her! My little water baby

Jumping the waves with uncle Parker

All four of the cousins just love each other and have so much fun together, but these two are something else! I think they may be a pair of trouble makers!

This was how she went under once, but it was too cute and fun not to do

Sophia, Addison, Tessa, and Ella

Nice face Nate!

We went down to the beach one night and had a photo shoot

I love that she can walk holding our hands now

She was so amused with the sand, shells, and water. She just looked so precious

She loves her Daddy

This was the cutest thing! The girls saw us walking with Tessa so of course they had to too. Tessa loved it and thought it was so fun

your pics of the kids on the beach are so fun. I love the ones of Tessa crawling in the water! That cracks me up. She's so teeny and yet totally fearless.
