Last Days in Paradise

Our last couple of days at the beach were bittersweet. Tiny was gone with Nana and Boppy so we headed to the lake for some kayaking with the older girls. Love the workout of kayaking. Not gonna lie. :)

Then we spent the afternoon hanging out in the waves...

...and walking the beach. We found a starfish and also had a close encounter with a 4-foot shark that we didn't even realize until a fellow beachgoer alerted us. Fun times.

That night we headed out to dinner and finally took a few pics...

...on the beach for posterity.

We ate dinner at a super fun restaurant, hit the mini golf course again and even went to one last souvenir shop. Because these girls because one can never have too many t-shirts.

The next morning we bid adieu to the beautiful beach and picked Tiny up at Maw Maw's a few hours later.

And we made quite a fun detour... West Monroe!

And we even ate at Willie's restaurant, which may have been the best food we had on the entire trip. No lie.

Many, many moons later (or so it seemed), we finally made it home. And jumped right into back to school preparations as my girl started 10th grade two days later. It was such a fun trip and I'm so glad we decided to drive a little farther for vacation this time.

Next year, though...I imagine we won't venture quite as far. :)
