Made it through the night and a quick stop for breakfast.
Love the gas prices down south!
Finally! But we still had 4 hours to go.
Isaac loved the water.
No toe-dipping here. He RAN and jumped in. Belly-smackers, pencil-dives, head-first, summersaults and flips. But only if he had his Floaties on.
Father's Day 2012. My kids have the best dad ever. End of story :)
Ella is a fish and the queen of treading water. She is always in the deep end. Abby is a great swimmer but super-cautious. She gained a lot of confidence this year and even let Carl throw her in a few times.
Indian Rocks Beach is beautiful!
Buried in the sand.
Loving the ocean!
Shark's tooth Carl found on the beach.
Heading out to LightHouse Donuts
Just a short walk away.
Key Lime and Chocolate
PJ's for lunch. Great seafood, and dollar bills on every inch of the wall, and a parrot.
Crabby Bills for dinner. (not all in the same day :)
The sunsets were amazing! Carl caught lots of pinfish, ladyfish, and a jack. He was really hoping for a shark. Maybe next year.
Caleb trying out the waves.
They can all jump in without holding their nose. How do they do that? I really want to know!
Caleb is a master bubble blower. He can blow ring bubbles under water!
We drove all day and then spent the night in Gatlinburg.
The next morning we went on a hike through the mountains.
And got to see this.
Laurel Falls. A 75 foot waterfall
And another short hike along a stream to Cataract Falls.
Best vacation ever! Then we headed Home Sweet Home.
