Destin 2009

On Sunday after the softball tournament, we left for Destin for the week. Brian and Erin came on Tuesday to enjoy time on the beach with us. We had a great trip.

Monday night, dinner at AJ's. We had a huge bucket of steamed seafood. I was taking lots of pictures of the kids and Trey and a lady at the table behind us must have felt sorry for us and offered to take a picture of us all together. It is not a great picture because she said my camera scared her, but at least we got a family picture. The kids got animals made out of balloons. Julia refused to have her picture taken with the pirate. Outside after dinner Savannah, Julia and Trey held a lot of parrots. Jack is kinda scared of animals and refused to hold the parrots.

On Tuesday evening we tried to get some pictures on the beach. It is always a hassle but we usually get a few great pictures of the kids. Here is a sampling of the pictures.
Then we went to eat at Fudpuckers. We waited for 2 hours and would not have waited if we had not promised the kids last year we would take them there the next time we came to the beach.

On Wednesday night, the kids went to spend the night at Trey's Uncle David and Aunt Candy's house with Mama Lynn, Aunt Kathye, and Ian while Trey and I went out to dinner for Erin's birthday.

Thursday we spent the day on the beach with David and Ian. The kids had a great time playing on the beach and in the swimming pool. We cooked a big pot of pasta and went to Kathye's house for dinner and fireworks.

Friday we spent the morning on the beach with red flags. Since it was really overcast, rainy and the kids could not get in the water, we decided to get ready and go to lunch. We ate lunch at Pompano Joes. Jack and Savannah tried raw oysters, but decided they did not like them. We went back to the condo and played at the pool. Trey grilled steaks for dinner. There is nothing like food that has been grilled on a charcoal grill.

Saturday morning we got up and hit the road for Alabama. We had a great vacation and cannot wait for October when we get to go back to Destin.
