Will's First Trip to the Beach

So technically it was Will's third trip to the beach. Let's revisit the first two trips:

Trip #1-August 2008

Clay and I went on vacation with Richard, Julie, and John. Literally, right before we left Birmingham to head to Orange Beach, we were at the doctor confirming that I was pregnant. I was 8 weeks pregnant and no one knew.

Trip #2-January 2009

Clay and I went to Gulf Shores to get away one last time before Will joined us. I was 32 weeks pregnant.

(No need to comment on how HUGE I was.)


April 2009

Mom and Dad invited us to go with them on vacation. We went to Orange Beach for 5 days and had a great time. John wasn't able to go and we missed him.

Will spent probably a total of 20 minutes on the beach the entire time. He did enjoy the sound of the waves and anytime we would go on the balcony he would mellow out.

First time on the was really windy!

Our little family.

Pop, Pat, and Will.

First time leaving the state.

Toes in the sand.


  1. I love the preggo pic!! And the picture by the sign is great! I'm so stealing that idea! Gavin's first trip to the beach is coming up in July...

    The pattern on his outfit in the picture with his toes in the sand looks familiar...a lot like Gavin's outfit in the park pictures....

  2. I love these pics. Um, did Clay go for a swim prior to the photo-op in that one picture? Or is it just the lighting? <3

  3. Ok so this comment is a little late but I just went back and read it. how sweet was he at the beach! I just can't wait until we get to go!!
