So I always wanted to take a family vacation to the beach and this summer WE DID IT!! We spent a week in Destin, Florida. It was beautiful. White sand and crystal blue water -- made for a great week. We had so much as family -- Aida and Christopher loved the beach and the pool and we build a gazillion sand castles, we caught fish and hermit crabs, ate tons of great seafood and really enjoyed our week together. The water was so great for all of us - I hope we go back many, many more times. Here are some pictures of all of us on the beach. The kids were so happy -- nobody wanted to leave. It was the best ending to a great summer. Memories I never want to forget -- I wish I could just bottle them up and keep them this age forever -- they are so much fun.
