Our first real road trip as a family! On our way to Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
Pit stop in Gulfport, Mississippi to check out the beaches there and give the kids a little break. The water wasn't the prettiest, but I must say that the water was warmer, the waves gentler, and the slope of the water much gradual. Big pluses with kids.
Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
There's a few things we like to collect in each city we vacation in- a deck of cards, a magnet, and a kissing selfie. :)
Way home. Stopped for the night in Nashville, Arkansas.
All in all, my opinion of road tripping has changed (I've previously resisted driving anywhere over 6 hours for vacation after our disastrous move to Missouri when a 18 hour drive turned into something more like 30 hours). Granted, Chad drove 88% of the time time, but in my defense, I was willing and he didn't seem to mind. :) But the kids did fabulous! Max had a limit of about 3-4 hours in a carseat (unless sleeping), but other than that, a few new movies and books seemed to go over great with the kids! We'll probably be doing another roadtrip again given the opportunity.

25 people guessed. 76% said girl, 24% said boy. And the verdict is....
And as a side note- when I told Liam (who had predicted a girl) that he was going to have a new baby brother he said, "Um, how 'bout a baby sister instead".
We're excited...a little shocked that this will make 3 in a row, but mostly happy he's healthy & that we don't have to go out and buy anything new. I guess I have the Wilkins curse in reverse (my mom had 6 girls in a row followed by 2 at the end). :)
