My parents invited us to tag along on the vacation to Destin. After much debate (okay, like 20 minutes....) we decided that as long as Owen's doctors were okay with it, then we would start packing! Of course his amazing doctors encouraged us to jump at the chance of a week of relaxation. Let's face it, twice weekly labs, multiple doctor appointments and caring for a newly transplanted babe have been a bit exhausting! Not to mention, once Daddy starts residency there won't be any vacation time for a while!
We decided to leave a day before my family and drive down to Birmingham, AL. We were unsure of how Owen would handle being in the car for such a long ride. Well, of course, he was nothing short of an angel!
|Of course we stopped at the Space Shuttle in Huntsville!|
|Picnic with Dad :)|
|Catching up on some Elmo in our room.|
|Ready to finish out the drive to Destin!|
|Owen's first look at the beautiful sand and water!|
|I think he liked it! :)|
|After not napping the car all day, the waves put this boy to sleep!|
|He was NOT a fan of the waves crashing on him...yucky sand!|
|Swimming with Marlee :)|
|He found a new BFF in Uncle Will. He's been working hard on saying his name, too!|
