Spring Break 2016 from my iPhone

Our kids had Friday off so we packed up the car and headed down to the farm to drop the dogs off on Thursday night

We woke up nice and early and hit the road for Florida

We stopped and spent the night in Alabama Friday night since we couldn’t check into our house until Saturday. We were all a little pooped and got take-out for dinner

IMG_2762 copy

Since we had knocked most of the driving out the day before we didn’t have to get up so early on Saturday. We had breakfast, Austin went to workout at a nearby gym, and then we hit the road

IMG_2786

Our house for the week. I was seriously in love with it and plotting how to stay forever. Took this picture off the house site- sorry for the bad quality!

There was an art show going on in watercolor so after spending the day at the pool overlooking the ocean we went to check it out.

I love watercolor. ๐Ÿ™‚

We played in the park while we waited for Andy to come pick up with the golf cart

Eva decided that she wanted to organize the pantry with the food we brought. Yes we shop at Costco a lot!

IMG_2779

We spent most evenings on the front porch

I can’t believe that this was most likely our last Spring Break with Austin. Next year he will be in college.

Grandma and Grandad decided to fly over from Texas for a few days to stay in our carriage house. Blake. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_2809

And then some friends of mine from a very long time ago drove over to see us, they are now living in Florida

IMG_2835

We watched the sunset from Bud and Alleys.

IMG_2816

It did not disappoint.

The next day we had to find an urgent care for Cole who was very sick. Had to drive 45 minutes each way ๐Ÿ™

IMG_2837

Some antibiotics made him feel much better but it was a slow process and he didn’t get to enjoy most of the trip.

IMG_2851

Blake and I loved the street legal golf cart

IMG_2850

The upstairs Master bedroom had it’s own porch ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_2865

Eva went to Camp Watercolor in the mornings

IMG_2870

I kinda like Florida

IMG_2873

Blake played his guitar a lot

IMG_2890IMG_2898

Austin and I did a lot of reading on the beach

And then it was back to the farm to get the dogs

It always amazes me how fast the week flies by. I miss it so much!

Next up big camera pics!

Once again our January started with this little ski bum hitting the slopes. This year Cole found a new love of skiing and wanted to go all the time as well.

He’s such a cutie in his glasses ๐Ÿ™‚

These two…their relationship cracks me up. They call each other best friends.

Hudson would play ball 24/7 if someone would play with him.

Can I go outside so I can open the door back up again by myself and come back in but not close it and make the house get cold and you get mad and you go close the door? Because then I will sit in front of it and want to do it again.

After school hug.

Spring is almost here you guys- hope that means more big camera pics!

Quick winter get away

Over the long presidents day weekend we decided to head down to Florida to warm our toes in our favorite sand.

On the way down we stopped in Franklin, Tn and Eva was so excited to swim in the pool but as luck would have it, it was closed. So instead we hit the workout room to burn off a little energy.

We stayed in a condo at Watersound Beach that had awesome views of both the ocean and the dune lake.

The first time we went to watersound (about 6 years ago) the boys were so freaked out by the weird lake that was full of tadpoles. They called it the “toxic river of doom”. It turns out that these dune lakes are pretty rare and by the end of the trip they were playing in it catching (and releasing) the tadpoles.

Andy and I walked a lot and even peaked in the windows of the house I showed a few posts back. It is even better in person.

Q14A1397copy

The weather was mid 60’s most of the time but the kids still swam in the heated pool.

February in Florida is better than February in Ohio.

I love this place so much

Q14A1439copy

We met two Golden Retriever puppies and played in the sand with them. They live there full time. Lucky ducks.

Until next time 30A. See you soon!!
