Gulf Coast life

August, Part 2: Adventures

I’m back with the rest of the photos from August—when Jonas turned five months old! He was teething and CONSTANTLY drooling, and our dutch+boots bibs were a lifesaver!

Afton had lots of fun playing with friends…

…and of course family who were visiting for her birthday!

A definite highlight of our family visit was our sunset cruise on the Biloxi Schooner!

I had done this same excursion a few times before, but this time was definitely my favorite because of the company—both who was there and who wasn’t, ha! Who was there: My parents, brother Alex, his girlfriend Taylor, husband Alex, Afton, Jonas, and me. Who wasn’t there: literally anyone else! That’s right—we did not pay the big bucks for a private cruise but ended up having one anyway just by sheer luck! The weather and the crew were excellent, and we had so much fun!

I love getting to do touristy things right here at home. I always get a new appreciation for where we live when we share it with people we love.

What a perfect way to end the summer. Next adventure: SCHOOL! :)
