Vacation



We try to take a family vacation each year, this year we chose Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. It's been a very long year, and I was glad to get away to relax. We rented a very nice house that is about 3 blocks from the beach. It has 5 bedrooms and 3 baths and is plenty big for us all to move around. We needed lot of room with 3 preschoolers in tow. The subdivision also has a couple of swimming pools so there are plenty of water activity options for everyone. Josh is not a big fan of sand, he much prefers the pool. Bryan, Josh and Jenni also have bikes and there are plenty of bike trails for them to enjoy in this area.
The first night we decided to go by the beach on the way to a restaurant. This is the first trip to the ocean for the girls and when they saw it they were in awe. It was about 6 o'clock and the tide was coming in. Morgan said "oh I think I'm scared" and then they both ran to the water and squealed. Before we knew it they had stripped off their clothes and were running in the shallow waves. We had to walk back to the house and change and dry off before dinner. They also
had a great time at dinner helping Chassi crack the crab legs she ordered. Everything is an adventure with those little girls along.
If you need a place to stay - this one is highly recommended and the owner Kerry is a dream to work with. http://www.vrbo.com/98671
