At The Beach

Mark's parents have a beach house at the Gulf and we spent the past few days there with them. We had a really nice time, even though it was a very short stay. I'm sure the girls enjoyed some different scenery since we have been home a lot over the past few months because of Victoria's condition.

Elyssa especially loves the sand (and dirt)! Here she is laying in it.

We went to the zoo one day and enjoyed seeing all of the animals. The girls really loved it and Mom was great to stay with Victoria at the beach house while we had our fun outing.

Victoria rolled over for the first time on Thursday! I tried to get it on video, but the best I could do is get a photo of her on her side. Trust me, she did roll over and we were all excited!

Natalie is NOT a "heat" and "beach" person so far. She is just happy to stay under the house (or in it), where she will not get too hot. We believe this is due to her sensitive skin and hope she grows out of it.

Natalie wore her hair in pigtails for the first time and was extra-cute!

Mark's brother, Dendy, and his wife, Janay, had their 2nd little girl while we were at the beach. They live in Foley, so we stopped by to see them at the hospital on the way home. They named their little girl Mary Katherine Messick. She is a cutie and had a head-full of hair!

The past few days were a lot of fun and we feel so blessed to have access to the beach whenever we want to go there. Hopefully, in the near future we can take another trip over there!
