There's No Place Like Home, But....

my heart is in Seaside, Florida! Yep, that's where we went on our secret vacation with our kids. It was a great time, but a bit like the movie "The Out-of-Towners". If you have not seen that movie, you need to rent it and find out what I am talking about. From a cancelled flight from DFW, being put on standby and several hours later being told only 3 could fly out that night, spending the night in Dallas with just the clothes you have on, no makeup. etc., being told countless times our luggage was lost , everyone getting sick except Josh,...need I say more??? Regardless, the scenery was beautiful, the company was great, and we have lots of memories in our hearts as well as in pictures. It was hard to know which pics to post, so here are a few that I really love. At the airport and EXCITED to leave!
Found luggage and golf bag in Ft Walton Beach, Florida!

Welcome to Seaside

Our little house on the beach....Beach Baby!

View from our screened-in back porch. Every morning a beach rental service had our five chairs and unbrellas waiting for us on the beach. Thanks, Mark, for having that done for us. It was GREAT!




I can hear the waves now!

An afternoon storm rolling in!

Getting closer!

Fun in the water!

Josh hitting golf balls on the beach in the evening.

Fun transportation to ride around town.

I have been checking daily to find out where you have been! Glad you finally made it to Florida and had a wonderful time with your family!
Since I don't have a blog I will just tell you that I am heading to Dallas on Wednesday to hear Paul McCartney!

Great Pics! I know your trip didn't go as planned, but you will have memories you can look back on and laugh about. I had such fun last week junking with you in Abilene. I can' wait until I get back that way again!
