VACATION


I am a bad blogger. I go weeks without posting and then have too much to post about. I will try to keep it short.

We have had a wonderful couple of weeks. The thursday before last my whole family spent the night at Great Wolf Lodge for my Dad's 60th birthday. The second time we have been able to do that together. The kids LOVE it. We all do! I took my camera....unfortunately I was having too much fun to stop and take pictures. I was also busy making sure my dare devil 2 year old didn't drown. We did have some pictures taken of the kids in Grapevine though. You can see those at Kristin Cook's blog.....www.kristincookphotography.blogspot.com



Then Chad and Meg and I headed to Florida for 6 days. If you haven't been to the Beaches of South Walton area on Highway 30A....you need to go. We stayed in a condo, since it was just the three of us. I LOVED the whole area. Watercolor, Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach. They are all little towns with tons of beach houses shops and fun restaurants. It is very movie like. Lots of locals and beach houses owners. It is a total change of pace from Destin which is just 30 min away. I am going to get a Beach House there, when I grow up!

I don't want to mess with uploading all the pics through blogger, so here is a smilebox slideshow if you care to watch. Meg had so much fun. No child has ever loved the beach more. She would wake up in the morning and say, "please go to the sandbox, please." She also loved riding in Chad's Kayak. I almost didn't let him bring it, for packing reasons....but it was a hit. I made sure he stayed VERY close to shore when Meg was in tow, though. We rode bikes up and down 30A one day, played on the beach a couple of days and drove into Destin to see the boats and have lunch another.

Warning....it's kind of long. I didn't even use nearly all the pictures we took.
