We went to the beach last week for Spring Break. We rented the same house as last year in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. The kids each took the same friends as last year as well. It was so easy and laid back. We rented the bikes ahead of time, and scheduled the beach chairs and umbrellas for the week.
We really didn't have to do anything once we got there but relax...
That is after we loaded up at the grocery store. Six teenagers can eat a lot. Dunk them in water and they eat even more!
These two talked and laughed the whole week. They giggled from the moment they woke up and could still be heard giggling long after they closed their door for the night. I love that they've been best friends since first grade.
Even on the days that there were no waves, these guys would not be discouraged. They managed to have fun even when they weren't flipping out of their tubes.
We even took the kids parasailing for an afternoon. That was really fun and they all enjoyed it. I think that parachute would make a good color combination for a quilt.
Aren't they cute?
After dinner we walked to the ice cream stand, pretty much every single night! YUM.
I set up a little sewing station in the upstairs lounge area. It was quiet here with a nice view of the beach.
We watched the sun set from our roof deck every evening. It was so spectacular.
The week went way too fast and I cried when we left. The beach is definitely my happy place. It's so hard to say goodbye.
I'm just so thankful for every moment. It was a wonderful week in every way!
