Before our trip, we thought it would be really fun to make some matching shirts to wear. At first we wanted it to be kind of funny, but it developed into a really cute shirt! So we all wore it to the park our first day together as a family, who came and joined us for the week of fun!
The rest of our day was filled with rides, pin trading, yummy treats, and a conversation with Crush from Finding Nemo! It was such a fun day, and the weather was perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
We stayed at the new Courtyard Marriott Theme Park Entrance hotel, and it was so awesome! It had the best water area for Parker to play in with splash pads and little slides. He couldn't get enough of it, and may have thrown a fit every time we had to leave. It surprises me how kids can go swimming when it's not very warm outside! But the hotel was awesome, and we will definitely be going back.
And we couldn't leave the beach day without a trip to Ruby's diner at the end of the pier for some french fries and milkshakes ;) Totally made the whole beach trip worth it!
