Destin Vacation continued…
I definitely won’t be wining any blog awards any time soon. Moments to write these little stories recounting the happenings of our lives are hard to come by. I’m so tired by the time the girls go to bed I don’t even have the energy to get ready for bed myself let alone write coherent dialogue that may some how be interesting or informative.
But I am determined to share the rest of the vacation we took over the holidays with you. We had such a fun time hanging out together and being around our friends. Watching how much the girls enjoyed the company of our friends children was great entertainment. But when you have toddlers and cold weather activities are a necessity. In addition to packing a suitcase of clothes I also packed a bin of activities for the kids to do.
We rode bikes indoors, painted, made beaded necklaces, decorated $1 wood picture frames from Michaels, made crowns for everyone, did some yoga, colored and stickered, had target practice and played with play-doh.
We also baked all kinds of yummy treats, cookies, brownies and muffins. My kids love pouring, mixing and helping break the eggs. Watched a little tv and everyday we took a dip in the heated pool in the back yard. We have two little fishes on our hands.
We also spent some time exposing the attractions near our house. There was a great outlet mall with a fun little playground, a multi purpose entertainment village with another fun playground and several restaurants we visited.
We will be sticking close to home for the next few months. Big changes coming, I can’t wait to see how Talia and Jordan react to a having a baby in their lives. I’m however they take it, it will make us laugh a little, they are the two funniest people I know.
