Destin Summer 2016

What a trip we had! 5 families all together in Destin! 10 adults and 11 kids.  Non stop action, for sure.  We enjoyed another fun week in Destin, Florida with some of our closest friends to wrap up summer 2016.  We had a beautiful 8 bedroom house on the beach and enjoyed a ton of beach volleyball, puzzling, crab hunting, swimming, boogie boarding, tanning, eating, drinking and laughing. Even though getting to and from can be a bit painful it is always worth it.  Here are the pictures to tell the story of our week.
My co-pilot caught a nap. He was on shift the night before we left.

We drove half way to Vicksburg, where we enjoyed free happy hour and pool.
Our only hiccup on the first leg was that Ryan got carsick an hour in and threw up.

Day 2- last leg to Destin, girls stretching their legs when we stopped to eat.
Poor Ryan went straight to her bunk bed when we got there.
She was not feeling well and we discovered later she was running a fever.

Ryan came with us.
Kellie kept Emma and Polly for us.
At the wedding this little boy (also named Ryan) was crazy about our Ryan.

He asked her to dance.
It was so cute.
She was so giddy and shy.

Great friends, great trip!

The drive from Destin to Vicksburg was brutal.
Worst leg, hands down.
6 hours of hell.
Emma was in a great mood.....
See how much fun we were having!
Glad to be out of the car and at the hotel!

Last leg, crossing the mighty Mississippi.
Eating in Shreveport before we make it home.
