Florida here we come! Well in two weeks that is. H just rented us a condo right along the beach last night. We'll be staying for 6 nights with the kids. I'm so excited! It's been a while since we've booked a vacation longer than 3 days and this will be our first vacation as a family of 5. I'm a little nervous about the 10-12 hour car ride with the kids, but hopefully everything will go smoothly. I'll have to think of everything I can think of to keep them entertained.
Meanwhile, I'm already thinking about what we're going to pack, though I imagine we'll be in shorts and our swimsuits most of the time. We'll be in a less touristy area right on a cape so our days will be spent pretty much on the beach. One of the reasons we rented a condo is because of the space and a full kitchen. We plan on buying groceries and cooking most of our meals. Trying to figure out where to go to eat 3 times a day with 3 kids is going to be too much of a hassel. We hardly eat out as a family as it is, because the little ones are too hard to take out and have a sit down meal with. We plan on just relaxing and taking it easy. Have I mentioned how excited I am?!


  1. Well, it sounds like you may be going to Cape San Blas. If so, it is gorgeous there. We just went there in April. Have fun!

    1. Yes! That's where we'll be. Glad you liked it! It will be my first time in Florida.

    2. In Port St Joe, which is about a 15 minute drive from the cape, there is a pirate themed playground that is right on the bay. It is glorious. The only downside to the area is the Piggly Wiggly. Gosh. It is awful. I am so used to my city grocery stores that I was sorely disappointed. I hope you guys have a ball. I know we did. I am counting down the days until we can go back!
