Carrabelle!!

We packed up Friday and headed to Carrabelle for the long weekend. It was great. We got in and set up by about 7 Friday night so Amelia and I decided to go swimming. As I was helping Amelia with her shoes, Avie fell out of the camper and down the steps....it was very traumatic!!! She landed face first in the gravel, she scratched up her face pretty good. After we got her settled down (and ourselves) we went to the pool. Then Donald came over to ask where the top of Amelia's TV was (the speakers) yep left at home.....great.

The next morning the campground had a kids fishing tournament, Amelia got a free fishing pole and tackle box, she was so proud. Then we hit the beach to go fishing, Amelia soon lost interest in the fishing. They must have really good sand there because Avie ate her weight in it:)





You can kinda see her battle wounds.
They have a great boat playground there, they loved it. However this is where Avie's next accident occurred. There were windows in the side and Donald had put her down to look out of them, she did fine with the first...and the second...totally missed the step on the third and fell....yep opened up the scratches from the first fall.

We put Avie down the big tube slide by herself, it was so funny, she inched her way down as easy as she could.

I tried to do a self portrait...but me having to sprint over and climb up in 10 seconds is near about impossible...........






Avie's third accident happened Sunday night, the camper has a booth like dining set. We take her booster seat and even strap her in, however there is nothing to strap the seat to. Usually we have her all the way by the wall and sit beside her...well Donald decided, for some unknown reason to pull her over to the middle and get up.....she leaned over a little to far and her and the chair flipped over to the floor, she did not even cry. I guess at this point she was use to it:)

Oh poor Avie!! That's the way Aidan's life has been lately... falling and scratching up everything. Don'tcha just LOVE this age???

Great pictures - looks like despite the accidents, you all had a great time. And good idea on the self-portrait, but I can never do 'em either.

looks like you all had a great time and Avie didn't appear too shaken up by all of her injuries. Love the photos! The girls are growing so fast!
