So Much fun in the Sun!!!!!!

 
We just got back from a great trip to Destin, Florida. It was so nice to get away and hang out on the beach. We have been so busy here, and my hubby had been studying for about 4 months 12 to 16 hours a day for his promotional test for the Fire Department. He took his test, and the next day we were on our way to Sunny Florida!!!!! Joe did AWESOME on his test and we are so proud of him. He will be a SR. Captain soon. Yeah Daddy!!!!!
This vacation was well needed after the past months, and it was such a blessing to get to go and enjoy our family. Lot's of firsts for my oldest Ethan.............he went Para sailing with daddy, ate mussels and oysters and lobster, surfed and boogied down on the pirate ship. :) Needless to say he had a great time. My other crew had so much fun too, and did a few new things like surfing and being a pirate for a day, but didn't venture into para sailing yet. :) It was so neat to watch the kids just loving the beach, They told us this was one of the Best vacations..
Mia had a great time too, it was like one GIANT beautiful sandbox for her and she loved getting down on the pirate ship too, and she had to participate in everything the boys were doing. Including a big ole pirate mustache.
