Tuesday, July 14th: happy anniversary to us... 14 years on the 14th!!!!
You want to hear what fabulous romantic thing we did today to celebrate... That would be attend a Professional Development session on Unit Planning together! I know right!!! Sounds fabulous right? Don't be jealous! I even won a door prize and when they drew my name RP said... Oh good... It's your anniversary present! Ha! Lol! It's all good... I would not want it any other way!!!
Wednesday, July 15th: oops another day with no picture... But picture this...us packing and doing laundry because we leave for the beach TOMORROW!!!!
Thursday, July 16th: Destin Here We Come...
I was so ready to get to the beach and start our vacation! I had the brilliant idea that we would leave at 5 am! I think RP thought I was kidding but I wasn't I was for real! I told him if we left by 5 we would be there by 9! Ha! ;) We packed the car the night before woke up and hit the road by 5!!! Here we are pulling out of the neighborhood....
We arrived in Ft Walton a little after 9:00 AM at the hotel that Richard's parents has stayed at the night before! We let the kids swim a little bit and then we went to lunch!
We ate lunch at Dewy Destin's and it was so yummy! Probably my second favorite meal of our trip! The view was beautiful and the food was yummy too!
After lunch we headed to the condo to check in (we got to check in early... Yay) and then we headed to the beach!!! I think this chick is excited to be at the beach!!!
After a great day on the beach we headed to dinner at my favorite place... The Back Porch!!!!
We had to wait to eat but that no big deal because it on the beach... The kids played and RP and I enjoyed a beverage!!!
Richard parents went with us to the beach too!!!
We enjoyed this absolutely beautiful sun set while we ate dinner! It was by far my favorite night our food was great and our view was amazing!!!
Friday, July 17th: Destin Day 2...
It was time to start Destin Day 2 and head to the beach! We looked out our condo that morning and the ocean looked a little dark after going to the beach and looking there was tons of seaweed in the ocean! Boo hoo! So we loaded up and headed to the beach by The Back Porch because it did not have seaweed! I think we would have all suffered through the seaweed if it was everywhere but the water was beautiful up the road so it worth the extra time and effort it took to pack up and drive to the "clean" beach! I mean can this water get any prettier!!! It looks like something out of a magazine!
After our day at the beach we went back, got dressed & headed to Harbor Walk to eat at Margaritaville for dinner! I enjoyed my coconut shrimp but we did not have the best service and other did not like their meal so this was not our favorite meal of the trip needless to saw!
at the beach!
Saturday, July 18th: Destin Day 3
Today the seaweed was still in the ocean at our condo so we headed back to the public beach up the road! It was beautiful and so calm today so I actually got in the ocean! I don't think when it's all "wavey" but I will float in it when it is calm!
some grilled oysters with garlic butter & cheese and game them bread to eat them with! They were both proud of them selves for actually eating them! I don't know if they actually liked them but they were sure excited that they ate them!
Jackson the dare devil made it to the top and "walked the plank" and rang the bell!
Sunday, July 19th: Seaside...
Today we went to Seaside for the day! I alway like a day in the middle to give everyone a break from the beach and today was our day! We drove to Seaside and walked around the shops and enjoyed lunch at the food trucks! We all go different stuff and it was all good! It's nice to have a break from seafood and eat different stuff too. I had BBQ nachos and RP had a turkey BLT grilled cheese. They were both really good! Richard's parents got a BLT & a burger and they said their food was good too! It's always fun to enjoy Seaside!
