Beach Vacation 2013!! {Part 1}

Okay. Where do I start? We had an ah-mazing trip to Destin, Florida this past weekend! It was so nice to get away especially with my hectic schedule over these past few months. I think that everyone in our household has been a little on edge and we've needed some getaway time to relax and clear our heads. After all, " everything is better at the beach," and it truly was!

I took off work early on Friday and we packed up the truck and headed to the beach! Look at these excited smiling faces:)

We got there late in the afternoon, so rather than try to make it out to the beach with our last few daylight hours, we opted to go for a quick swim in the pool before dinner.

For dinner, we chose a place close to where we were staying, Captain Dave's. The food was mediocre, especially for the price, but the view was gorgeous.

This was the waiting area. Not too shabby!

Much to Chris's dismay, I asked our server to take our picture. (For some reason, it embarrasses him.) You can't tell because of the flash, but we had a beautiful view of the beach.

The smell of the salty air lured us to the beach for a little stroll. (It was windy that night, so my hair was wild.)

The following morning we couldn't wait to hit the beach!

Ahhh, finally...

After a beach-filled day, naps, and pool time, Chris grilled out for dinner. Yummy!

We did make a late night excursion to the The Donut Hole.

Look at my crumby face! Can you tell that I enjoyed my donut? Ha!
These were such fun times and good memories! More to come soon:)...


  1. So jealous of your beach vacation! We are hitting the lake this weekend... not as nice as the beach, but I'll take it :) LOVE your daughters dress, the one with the pink chevron on top and bottom and the mermaids I think on the skirt! CUte!

    1. Thanks, Carrie! Oh, I love going to the lake too! We haven't been in a few years, but it's actually closer to us than the beach.
