I didn’t post much last week, since we were on vacation. We had a great time in Destin, Florida. I don’t like to announce I am on vacation. It just doesn’t seem safe that everyone knows my house is sitting alone empty. Together with my husband we agree to not post on Facebook when we are gone either.
I tried to put up a post using my husbands iPad for my Friday Finals, and I just couldn’t get it to work the way I wanted to. So I just didn’t do anything. Now I feel bad I didn’t explain why there was no post on Friday. Oh well that is in the past.
All five of us trekked from Texas to Florida in the Tahoe. It was packed to the top with all our stuff. We have a small shelf in the back for a cooler filled with groceries for the week and a couple of suitcases. I did a menu plan for the week. We brought all of our own food, since we normally get a place with a full kitchen. This saves so much money while on vacation. We pulled an allnighter on Friday and drove to Florida.
I really unplugged last week, and it felt great. I was able to read an entire book. I don’t know when the last time I was able to do that. I rarely checked Facebook or my blog. My numbers on my blog plummeted greatly I might add. I only had one post scheduled for Wednesday the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast. Next time I will schedule the Friday Finals post early and have it ready to go for when I am out. Just in case. Stop by tomorrow to link up your shopping trips for the week.
We played on the beach with all three kids. We would quickly try to build sand cities, while Little Face would be Godzilla and destroy them all. He was way more interested in destruction than building. The sand is so white and the water was clear bluegreen. It was my first time there and I fell in love with it. This is on my list to go back. My husband used to go here all the time when he was younger.
Little Miss and my stepson enjoyed jumping the waves and playing in the surf. Then they all enjoyed playing in the heated pool to wash all the sand off after the beach. We borrowed the Harry Potter movies from a friend and watch a movie every night. The kids really enjoyed this. We are on the fifth movie and plan to watch those next weekend when we have all the kids together again.
