"You still there, mom?!"
Spotted the boat...
"Wow, what is that big thing?!"
Those people are waving and yelling at me!!
He was amazed by the water fountain, of course!
He was having a blast!
The next day, Tuesday, we ventured over to Pensacola Beach, which was about 20 minutes from our hotel.
Packed and ready to go!
In fact, so much fun, as soon as that tiny hiney hit the seat, he did this ALL the way back to the hotel. :)
Wednesday and Thursday were both blah days. Cloudy and rainy so we opted for the big mall, Cordova Mall. I didn't get hardly any pics these days. Thursday morning, poor baby woke up sick. The usual cold symptoms had taken over his little body. Congestion, runny nose, sneeze, cough, and his breathing sounded horrible. So, we definitely took it easy. Friday, we had to be checked out by noon. His company only paid for the room M-F so on the weekends you are on your own. You could stay somewhere else or drive back home and come back on Sunday. Therefore, we opted to stay on the beach side and make a little family vaca out of it. We stayed at Holiday Inn Resort right on the beach. It was extremely nice and I'm SO glad we decided to do that. Fortunately, Daniel got done early on Friday so we went and picked him up and headed to our hotel.
By the time we got there, unpacked, and walked around and took in all the wonderful sights, sounds, and smells of being at the beach, we decided to head to dinner. We went to a seafood restaurant, Paradise Bar and Grill. It was amazing...just like several people had promised it would be. I'm not sure which was better, the food or the view.

After a well rested night, we were all up and at 'em the next morning bright and early ready to have some fun by the pool and beach. Hampton LOVED the little bitty fountains at the edge of the pool. They were just his size! :)
This time on the beach,
he really wasn't sure about this teeny, tiny, grainy stuff that was all over him. ;)
Don't get me wrong, he did play a little in it, but was not overly thrilled about it. Hence, the face here. haha!
So, not long after, we opted for the pool again. I will let you decide by these 2 pictures whether he enjoyed the pool or the sand better! :)
That night, we decided to go back to Peg Leg Pete's (we had been that Monday night before and it was so good) and once again, it didn't disappoint.
Having a little fun while waiting on a table...
We got back to the hotel, and soooomebody was still wanting to play. He literally knew we were somewhere different and he took full advantage of it! Here he is playing peek-a-boo in the mirror with himself. It was hilarious to say the least. I was just glad to see him feeling a little better. He was sick all weekend, but was the best little trooper in the world!
