Cancun? Miami Beach? Ft. Lauderdale?
Nope. It is Panama City Beach, Florida. Yup, Panama City Beach. I know this to be true because I heard it on the Today Show. Therefore it must be legit. And guess what? I live 90 miles from Panama City Beach. People travel from all over the country to live it up at Club La Vela and I am so lucky to be within a short drive to the most popular Spring Break destination in the country.
So, you can imagine what we did for Spring Break, right? Yup. We stayed in Dothan and took pictures with giant sized peanuts.
I know, I know. Stop the madness. I shall not be contained.
But I had my nieces with me and my own three small children, so hanging out with the college kids in PC probably wouldn't have been in my best interest this year. I'll just bide my time and let loose at Club La Vela when they are older. I know that will thrill them to no end.
So, anyway, back to the matter at hand. Mainly updating my blog so my kids can remember every second of their lives when they are older. Isn't that what blogs are for?
I need to start off with a triptych of my three babies on their first Easter. This was actually Bennett's 2nd Easter but since she was only 3 weeks old on her first Easter, I thought I would go with this picture. Aren't they adorable. How did I get so lucky?
Quick pic before we headed out. We tried to recreate the picture that is the header of this blog now that Lainey is older. It kind of worked. Kind of.
Bennett and Will ran into old friends too! Here they are with Anna and Ella.
Rob got some pics of us doing bumper boats since he wouldn't ride them. I was the only adult to get on with the kids since the others were afraid of getting wet. Wimps, I tell ya.
We spent the next few days hanging out, roaming around town, watching movies, playing games,and enjoying being together. I love these girls so much and am so happy we are back in Alabama so I can have weeks like this again. I kept them all the time when they were younger and getting to do that again means the world to me.
We drove all over Dothan and took pictures with the giant peanuts that are in front of local businesses. I know that sounds insane, but we actually had a lot of fun shouting, "I see one! Pull over!!" and jumping out of the car, snapping a shot, and hopping back in. Lots of fun.
We decorated Easter Eggs, of course.
See. Resurrection roll fail! Oh, well. The kids got the point of what we were trying to do and they still tasted great. But it seems like Jesus got stuck in the tomb. Not the best Easter illustration I must say.
You guys still with me? Bored to tears yet? So sorry. This is what happens when I blog once a month. I have to get it all out at once.
On their last night with us, we took the kids bowling. This shot of Will is fantastic. He got so nervous every time his ball was rolling down the lane.
There's my Will jumping to his heart's content.
And then on the last night it was time to leave out baskets for three little Easter bunnies..... more Easter pics to come.
