And the energy. Oh. my. word. That child would swim in the pool--she really took off with swimming, jumping in and swimming about half the length of the pool to me--play in the waves, build sand castles, etc. etc. all day long, and when I was absolutely worn slap out, dragging myself down the street to our house--which was a good little walk--Ada was usually sprinting down the street. It was an endless supply of energy until she would absolutelyy crash into bed at night. Maybe because I was so relaxed and had nothing on my schedule, but I feel like I received new insight into her personality while at the beach.
Bottom line, I am very thankful that we got to go. Not to be super dramatic or anything, but I got teary eyed when we first drove into the South Walton area and we saw the ocean. I felt very seen by the Lord. The trip was clearly a gift from Him, and we took full advantage of a relaxed schedule and lots of stress-free family time. And a few pictures...
Ada's thoughts on the beach ;) This girl loves to pose for a picture
A wonderful week!!!!
