Florida Vacation

OK I know I have been lazy this week and have been meaning to post pictures of our Florida Vacation, but I am just now forcing myself to sit down and do it!!! We had a blast in Destin as usual. This is the place where Craig and I got engaged 7 years ago and we have been back several times with family...we just love it! Avery has gone every summer since she has been born and this year was definitely the best with her. She loved digging in the sand and playing in the pool, finding treasures on the beach (seashells, rocks) and putting them in her bucket. She liked the ocean ok after she got used to it, but if it splashed up in her mouth, she was revolted and had a terrible look on her face! The first day we went down to put our toes in, she asked me, "Mommy, what is that noise?!" It was the ocean waves crashing onto the shore! She just never hears it and had no idea what it was! This year we went with Craig's brother Chad and his family. Avery absolutely LOVES her cousins and Ashley (9 yrs old) was like a little mother to Avery and took care of her so much for me! Thank you Ashley! They played and walked down the beach and swam in the pool and played in the house a ton! We enjoyed some delicious seafood the whole time whether in the restaurants or meals we ate at home. I just love good fish and shrimp and Craig has come to love them, too, over the years, even though he used to think he didn't like seafood! Can you imagine?! :) All in all it was a wonderful week of relaxing, sleeping, and eating! What can beat that? This has got to be a yearly tradition!

So fun! Looks like you guys had a great time. I'm so jealous that you have family you can go vacation with and so many great cousins for Avery. Jacob & baby may have to adopt Avery & baby as their cousins. :)

Looks like you all had a fun time in Florida! I would like to go to Destin sometime...maybe next summer when Emma can walk around. Your little baby belly is getting bigger every day:) How exciting!
