Spring Break

My parents flew in on Saturday (April 4th) and we left early Sunday morning for Fort Walton Beach, Florida. We left the house with dreams of sun, warm weather, pools, and white sand beaches.

Here we are in the car ready for our 7 hour drive.

There were some naps taken along the way.

After checking in a getting all of our stuff unloaded it was time for dinner so we walked across the street to Fudpuckers. We all ate Mother Fudpucker Burgers. (I know, I know it sounds a lot like Fud&*%$#@^) They have baby alligators on display so after dinner we went to see them. The boys thought they were cool!!!

Oh, and this one you could hold and get a picture taken for (are you ready) $10.00. I don't think so!!! Come people don't you know we are in a failing economy!!!

The next morning we all got up put on our bathing suits and sun screen and headed for the pools. Remember how I said we were dreaming of sun, warm weather, pools, and white sand beaches. Well, there were pools, white sand beaches and even sun but there was no sign of warm weather. It was cold and windy!!!

So, we did a lot of this...

There were days that we tried to pretend it wasn't cold.

Finally a nice morning. The boys played in the pool and floated down the lazy river with Papa.

Then on the last day we were there we had the most perfect day. It was 78 degrees and no wind. It was beautiful!! So we decided to take the boys down to the beach.

After the morning at the beach we took baths, showers and naps. Then we packed up the car and headed home. We got home around 2:00am. The next morning we got up and went to church. Then we had a Easter family barbecue. And, I am the worst mom ever because I didn't take any pictures of my boys on Easter. I know, I am bad!!!

We had a great time!! It was so nice to spend time with my Mom and Dad and to see the boys with their Nana and Papa. Thanks Mom and Dad for a great Spring break. I love you so much!!

Can you let me know what day is good for you during the week? I'll leave the grouch at home but maybe I can get Margie to come with me. I wanted to come for McKay's b'day but with buying new tires and paying taxes..can't swing it right now. Hugs and kisses to my grandsons!
