We are finally counting down days to our vacation in single digits! The days are passing quickly and I am not quite as put together as I normally am. If I were still single without Roxy, I'd be packed by now. As it is, I am laying clothes aside for the both of us as I get a minute or two, but nothing is in the suitcase and my master list is yet to be compiled. Maybe this weekend...
However, in 9 days, just after 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 18, 2011, Roxy, Grandmomma and I will be headed to Destin for a total of ten days! How exciting is that? We are very excited that we will get to visit with MyNaye and Pap again - its been a long five weeks without them. Even though we've vacationed in the area several times before, this is my first beach vacation in two years and Roxy's first beach trip ever. I can't wait to go and see things through her eyes as she explores her surroundings.
Here are a few of the things that I plan on doing with Roxy while we are there:
Taking Roxy to the Science Center which is supposed to enhance learning for all ages with each of the five senses.
Taking Roxy to a different zoo and going to the petting zoo and taking a train ride through the African Safari exhibit.
Showing Roxy the ocean for the first time.
Watching the dolphins play in the bayou.
Building sandcastles with my baby.
We'll also enjoy nature trails and the playground at the park where we'll be staying.
This Momma is a little anxious about taking a hyper and curious 18-month-old so far from home, but I think between four adults, we can manage.
