Our 30A Beach Trip by the Numbers

After several days in paradise we’re back to reality on this Monday – there are bags to be unpacked, chores to be done, laundry to be washed, and groceries to be bought.  But before we get into all of that boring stuff, first, a recap by the numbers of our trip!

4 – Nights spent there

3 – Full days there

18 – Hours spent lounging/walking/playing on the beach

8 – Beaches visited (Panama City, Carillon, Inlet, Rosemary, Alys, Seacrest, WaterSound, Seaside)

15 – Ice creams consumed… Olivia chose candy the last night we were there, hence the reason for the odd number.

8 – Adult beverages consumed

11 – Donuts/cinnamon rolls consumed

2 – Times we were asked if Jacob and Olivia are twins.  Why oh why do we hear this question so much when we’re on vacation? 

2 – Times our traditions were messed up because things had changed (Pineapple Willy’s had discontinued my favorite drink and Pier Park had closed the outdoor carnival that we’ve been taking the kids to since Jacob was a baby.)

4 – Tickets purchased for bumper boats… the kids LOVED this.

1 – Defective bumper boat… Jacob’s boat went in the opposite direction of the steering wheel the first time around.

4 – Live sand dollars caught and released

Too many to count – Shells we found

185 – Shells we kept and brought home

4 – Bottles of sunscreen we finished off

1 – Pair of sunglasses we broke (Jacob’s)

2 – Pairs of sunglasses we bought… because naturally Olivia had to have some new ones if Jacob did.

998 – Pictures taken on the trip

71 – Stories uploaded to Instagram… and they’re all saved in the “Beach Trip” highlight in my Instagram bio if you want to catch up!

LOADS – Of memories made

Countless – Times I said, “This is the cutest place ever!”

5,500,000 – Dollars we need to come up with to buy our own summer home on Rosemary Beach!  You know... no big deal!  ;o)  

I’ll be recapping our trip soon, so stay tuned!
