One last dose...

...of the beach!
We were supposed to go to the beach for Labor Day, but the tropical storm changed our minds. So we scheduled another trip to make up for that weekend that we had promised Grady. He reminded us often of our promise! And we wanted one last "dose" of the beach too!

Cannot believe this is the same child we took to the beach in March! He has totally changed his opinion of the sand. LOVES it! Told Josh he wanted to sleep in the sand! Ha!

We got to witness "Thunder on the Gulf" (quite interesting...a national speed boat race...) Josh took a video, but I'll spare you... Grady liked watching the boats from the balcony.

Football on the beach at sundown! To me, the sweetest part of the trip...just relaxing and being just about the only three people on the beach, watching Grady and Josh "play football"

Pete, you would be proud... We attempted Putt-Putt for the first time. Rather interesting with a 2 year old! ha! Uncle Jon, Grady needs some in-depth training!

Although we did eat a LOT of seafood, we HAD to stop at Lambert's for some "throwed" rolls on our way home. This is Grady's favorite restaurant ever! He gets so excited over the "throwed" rolls and just the whole atmosphere! He is also a little obsessed with the wooden trucks and train outside the restaurant!

...until next summer!

Loving this Weather!

Grady enjoyed playing outside yesterday afternoon. He is ALL smiles when he's playing in the yard. Being outside is his FAVORITE thing and we are LOVING this weather! Hope it sticks around for a while.

Pumpkin Patch

Mom and I took Grady to the Nichols-Boyd Pumpkin Patch yesterday. As always, they do a great job! He had even more fun than he did last year. LOVED all of the animals, especially the cows! He was quite picky with his pumpkin when we got off the wagon to pick out the ones we wanted. Last year, he didn't care, but this year he was kind of choosy! He was determined that he wanted a little punkin and if it didn't meet his specifications, he was quick to tell us...and on we'd go, searching for the one he wanted! It was perfect weather! Hope this weather will stick around for a while! Happy Fall!
