Well, it happened. We had our first vacation as a family of five!! This was quite the experience and I'm so thankful for all the new memories made with my little ones. In case you're wondering, the secret to a successful Florida family road trip is to drive at night...when the kiddos are sleeping. We did that both ways and it made everything so much smoother.
My in-laws have a timeshare in Destin, Florida, that is right by the beach. So we all got together for some much-needed vitamin sea. Being right by the ocean made it easy, because I could sit on the beach while Indy took a nice, long nap. Ledger ran around catching lizards and Elle played in the sand.
It was nice to wake up and not feel rushed to be anywhere by a certain time. No school drop off, no opening the store....just me and my family waking when the time feels right. That's the way life should be. I highly encourage everyone to carve a piece of time where you can be present in the moment and have some change in scenery.
You won't regret it.
