The Florida Recap

As promised I'm back recapping our trip to the white sands in Destin, Florida. While we did wind up having a good time, it probably won't go down as one of the all-time best vacations, mainly because we were sick while we were there. The boy caught a cold the night before we were there and finally started to feel better the morning we left. And on top of that both him and I wound up with food poisoning. I guess it's better being sick on vacation than while your stuck at home, and it gave me an excuse to watch episodes of Toddlers & Tiaras and Bridezillas for a whole day. The boy's been calling it the worst vacation ever, and while it sounds extreme, I can't think of any other vacation where we've both been sick. But now to the good stuff.
View of the Hotel
This is the condo we stayed in. It's kind of hard to tell from the picture but the hotel was built on a curve so that every room had an ocean view. And speaking of the ocean view...
View from the Balcony
You can also see some of the condo's pool from this picture. There were 2 full-sized pools, 1 kiddie pool, and of course a hot tub. As I mentioned last week, we spend most days outside reading by the ocean or the pool, where the pool tried his best to avoid having his picture taken.
Although his sister managed to capture the only slightly normal picture of the two of us. And yes, I am wearing the new bathing suit I posted about here, when I was trying to decide which one to buy.
And then there were cute pictures taken of the boy's niece and nephew. (This is probably my favorite picture of the whole trip, I just wish it was centered a little better.)
Sadie & Braylon
But all too soon it was time to head back home.
Back to Louisiana
I know after writing this I wish I was back at the beach, so I'm pretty sure you all feel the same way. Hopefully the pictures were able to give you a little escape before the week kicks back into full gear and summer is completely gone.
