Somewhere on a Beach

The annual Huey Family Vacaction detoured from our normal spot, Gulf Shores, AL, to Destin, FL for a good reason: Travis' aunt and uncle bought a condo in Destin and we really needed to check it out. 

We knew it would be a further drive, but the amenities looked great and we wanted to check it out. 

We headed east from Houston in the wee hours Saturday morning:
Food was required when H woke up. No better way to start your day than with breakfast at Chic-Fil-A. 
Approximately 1 million hours later (thank you Destin traffic) we arrived safe and sound at the beautiful Ariel Dunes Resort. 

After putting H to bed, we took a stroll on the beach. 
Note: JimJim and SuSu were watching H. He was not left alone. 

We headed out for the beach at 0730 the next day because H was ready to go:
We spent the remainder of our time playing in the sand, building castles, waving at everybody we walked by, splashing in the waves, eating delicious seafood, and shopping. 

Vacation doesn't mean a break from naps. This pop up tent was the best $28 I've ever spent. He napped everyday without issue! 

We got some pretty exciting news while we were on the beach. Hudson is going to be a big brother. Baby Bear 2 is slated to arrive in mid December. 

Another precious boy! 
Every morning JimJim would go down to the beach and mark our territory for the day with our chairs and umbrellas. We made friends with a sweet family from Tennessee. The husband was a talented sand artist. Did I just make that up? Ever say he would make a new creation. They loved watching hudson and would play with him. On the last day we got a picture with our new friends. 
We had a wonderful time in Destin and we cannot wait to go back!

11 Months

Hudson's 11 month didn't hold many changes, but he did take his first STEPS!! 

Travis and Hudson were in the kitchen (I was at work) and H let go of the pantry door and took several steps. Travis was able to get it on video and sent it to me, so I felt like I was there. 

Hudson has healed and recovered from his bout with RSV. Praying we never get that again. 

We're gearing up for the big First Birthday next month. 

A little morning date with Macy while her parents were out. 

We spent a Saturday afternoon at the Doseum, a kids museum in SA. We all had a great time and can't wait to go back. 
We went to Austin and visited our newest friend, Margot. 
Why is she crying?

And that's our 11th month with our growing like a weed Hudson Bear.
