As most of you know I took a much needed break from blogging... well, let me rephrase that... I took a break from the internet in general. It's nice to unplug every now and again and as we planned for months of our trip to Florida I decided what a perfect time for a break. I really didn't want to spend my vacation surfing the net while we could be outdoors enjoying family time, so instead of a computer we (the mister too) carried camera's and snapped as many photos as we possibly could of our time together. Now call us crazy but we drove the long haul to Florida and ya know what, it went surprisingly well. The kiddos were amazing in the car, with not one "are we there yet?" until we past 1000 miles and it wasn't even a real whine, it was more of a few questions from Wyeth about when could we get out of the car and to the beach? We drove through some beautiful states and some some interesting sights. Our time off was 18 days, though 4 of them were driving, but it was so worth it and we would surely do it again. Now for some photos... as I uploaded both camera's to the hard drive we counted over 700+ images yikes! Though I would never come anywhere near sharing this many photos with you (because that's even far to many for myself to fathom) I want to share a few snapshots and words of what we did every day or so to give you a peek into our travels and time off. Hope you enjoy them all. :)
