Florida Vacation

Last Saturday, our family loaded up two cars, ten people, fifteen + suitcases, coolers, beach chairs, a kayak, and (you get the idea) etc. We headed out at the ungodly hour of sometime before 7 a.m. for Florida.

With only two stops--one for lunch and one for complementary OJ, we made it to our beach house in record time. We immediately headed to the grocery store, by way of a tour of the area. Then, we spent some time in the pool, hot tub, and kayak practicing.

Sunday was a super relaxing day of beach time. We really enjoyed just hanging out and sitting. I also worked on my tan for the first time in a long time! I read several books (and discussed the art of speed reading with my family). All in all, the beach days were some of my favorite! We spent Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on the beach. Here are some of my favorite shots from the beach days:

Monday night was spent at the racetrack...the greyhound dog racetrack! I love going to see these races and trying my hand at picking the winner. Moose and I were very lucky and chose several of the winning/placing dogs! 

We went to Seaworld on Thursday...and I will reserve that for another day, but I LOVED it! We debated whether to go to Seaworld or Universal, and cost dictated our choice! However, I really enjoyed the shows and the rides.

We all went out and played putt-putt one evening. I was second! (behind Micah by one stroke...booooo) The best part about this evening was watching Meemaw and Peepaw enjoy themselves by doing something they probably had not done in years. It was so special to me!

We took all sorts of family pictures when walking around Daytona, going out to eat, and just enjoying each other's company. I'm so grateful for a family who can spend time together!

I love my people! I'm so grateful for them :)
