Ah, Summer at the Beach...

by Kristin Daniels


Summer in our house means only one thing: our annual Florida vacation! I touched on this trip a little during our travel week here at Fierce Romance. It’s the one thing that my entire family looks forward to.


This will be the fifth year we’ve spent in the same house, on the same beach. And the trip is taken the old fashioned way—by car (or in our case, SUV). Yep, we drive from Chicago to the Florida panhandle, but not straight through. A night spent in Birmingham, AL refreshes us enough to continue on the next day.


Then, after a day and a half on the road, we arrive at our own little slice of paradise. Seven days of fun, sun and time spent with great friends makes for a memorable summer vacation. And it’s one we never tire of. Every one of us is sad when we have to leave, and the countdown for the next year begins the second we pull out of our vacation home’s driveway.


Here’s a few more family pics of our Florida fun!

My good friend, me (no short comments, please :), and I'm not really sure what my expression is all about, LOL!), and my middle daughter. Cheers!


Me and my girls.


And of course, a gorgeous sunset...

Kristin, that sounds like a great family tradition! Dontcha just hate it when the kids grow taller than you? I'm 5'2" and my 13-yr old son is 5'6" and my 11-yr old is gaining on me. Sigh.

Cute girls, not that I know which is the mom vs. the dd. Your vacation spot looks wonderful. No wonder you love it.

My 14 yo is 5'7" and I'm 5'5". She's supposed to be my baby!

Carol,
I'm 5'2" also! My oldest daughter (on the left) only made it to about 5'1", but my middle daughter, she stopped at around 5'8". My son, now he shot straight past me and is now passing up his big sister too, and he just turned 15! But that's okay, my hubby is 6'2", so he comes by it naturally!

Carly,
Aw thanks! My oldest and I get comments all the time about how much we look alike, matter of fact someone stopped us in the grocery store today and told us that. We (or really probably just me, LOL)love it!

Thanks for the comments!

I love the beach! What great pictures. I'm only 5'1" - so I'm used to most everyone being taller than me.
