Driving down, we realized that I hadn't been to Florida since I went to DisneyWorld when I was 9 or 10, and Brandon hadn't been since 2003! Imagine that. I also had no swam in the Gulf of Mexico since our cruise when I was 13-ish, and he hadn't been since 2004. I guess this trip was more epic than we expected.
Our first stop was Pier Park in Panama City Beach. It was super busy, not surprising for a Saturday. We found a good parking spot, though, and headed in to window shop. We stopped at BWW for some lunch, of course. Yum, buffalitos and chicken tenders! Penny was all decked out for our trip. (She looks pretty excited, huh? Haha she's so dramatic sometimes).
After lunch we browsed some more, stopping to play a shooting game and get some Italian ice. We also went into a couple stores, including the As Seen on TV store. Then we made our way across the street to take a walk on the longest pier in the Gulf (supposedly!). By this time Penny was getting tired and she cried for half of it, so we tried to carry her, but she wasn't having it.
That was certainly a stressful end to our trip! We're coming to the realization that we can't go on trips with her very often, not until she's figured out the whole napping thing. But hey, it was fun! Now Penny has been to 13 states in her first 16 weeks. What a traveler!
