Vacation Part 1!

We recently went on our summer vacation which lasted a week and a half and was pure bliss!  The beach has to be my favorite place ever!  In order to avoid the world's longest blog post I'm having to split this up. We left out on a Wednesday night and drove down to Destin, FL to spend time with Kelly's family.  We were a little hesitant on how the girls would do on such a long drive but they were PERFECT!  It was a good trip down and we had such a blast there.  Cohen was so excited to see Sug, Pop, Aunt Vicki, Nana, Aunt Sara, Uncle Davis and of course...Savannah and Addison!  We were lucky that the girls wanted to go to sleep that night!  We spent the next 3 days in Destin and left on Sunday to be with my family in Amelia Island (that will be my next post!).  Destin was so nice.  The house we stayed in had a pool and we loved it.  The beach was great too but it was nice to walk out the back door and be at the pool.  Even sweet Kate got in every day!  We love being together with all our family too.  Even when you live close to your family, it seems like you get more quality time when everyone is right there together.  Cohen had Pop to "tell her stories" every day, which is something she loves.  It was so fun to watch Cohen this year.  We had been to St. Simons earlier in July so she had been in the ocean.  Once we got on the beach at Destin she went right in.  It helped that there were very little waves too!  She loved riding on the boogie board with someone pulling her.  She also loved the sand and got a kick out of me burying her in it.  We had to do that about 5 times!  It was such a great start to our "long" vacation and we are so appreciative to our family for asking us to go.  We had a BLAST!
