This is the life...

Can I just say how much I love a vacation. With a toddler. Jackson seems to have found some new independence the last few days and he has been a pistol. I know that most of this is probably remnants of his ear infection, and being out of his routine, but sheesh, he is giving us a run for our money.

So far today we woke up (me at 5:30 to go walk on the beach), had breakfast, and then hit the beach by 7:30. When I say hit the beach, I really mean that we went and sat in the sand because Jackson has determined that he doesn't care so much for the waves. When I say he doesn't care for the waves, I really mean that he can't stand them. Jeremy says it just proves that he is a "Wade." When either one of us goes to put our feet in the water, Jackson insists that we come back to the sand and to "sit down here."

We played in the sand for awhile, and then went to the pool for a little while. After that we cleaned up, Jackson took a short nap, and then we headed to the Original Oyster House for lunch. It was delicious! Then, we headed to the Track and rode go-carts. Jackson was all about it until it actually got time to put him on the go-cart with Jeremy. He freaked out! After about a minute, I was able to calm him down and strap him in before he knew it. When he and Jeremy took off he loved it! We had a blast. Then he flipped out when it was time to go...

When we left we headed over to the Wharf where we went to Build-A-Bear and made "Cooper" the newest member of our family, and then took Jackson on his first ferris wheel ride. He was so cute, and he kept saying that he was "tall."

We are exhausted, and going to take it easy this afternoon before heading out to play putt-putt and then go for one last evening walk on the beach. As tired as we are, it is so great to be taking a vacation with the family. We really should do this more often...
