We once again thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Florida. This is a trip we've done every year with my parents and sister for 6 years now, but Robert joined us for the first time this year! We had a great time, and it was fun to have him along to experience all we've talked about for so long.
We intended to go home by way of Pensacola to visit Robert's grandparents for the weekend, but a few days into the trip, his grandfather passed away after a long illness. We were sad to see him go, but did enjoy all the family we got to see (I was meeting some for the first time!) for the funeral. We also had to stay in a beach condo (instead of at his grandparents' house like we were planning) so we got a couple of extra days on the beach we weren't expecting! Pensacola Beach is so beautiful!
The kids thoroughly enjoyed the water this year, pool and gulf! They swam like champs, and Mattie took a beating in the waves, getting up and heading right back out every time. Guess that's why she ended up with a bad case of Swimmer's Ear. Jacob was not so adventurous, but was fine as long as he had his goggles on. Lol!
Here are some photos of our trip. When you get to the alien house, check out the little guy at the door!
