Week 16: Spring Break

I think I heard the angels singing on the Friday we got out for Spring Break! I could not get out of the school fast enough. I definitely had spring fever. 

I started out my break by heading to Toxey to visit with friends and family. I never get to go enough, so I take the opportunity when I have it. It is such a breath of fresh air to be with my family. 

I headed back to Mobile on Tuesday and had a little down time at home for a few days. Unfortunately, Adam was not on Spring Break, so it was business as usual for him. He did manage to get off Friday so we could head to Sandestin to have a little mini vacation. We left Mobile as soon as he got out of class on Thursday. The drive to Florida isn't a bad drive at all. We were there in no time and I do believe it is my new favorite place. We are making plans to go back this summer. Our sweet, sweet friends invited us to come stay with them a few days and we are so thankful they did. 

We arrived around 6:30 pm on Thursday and had a quick dinner. The kids couldn't wait to show us everything, so after dinner we took a tour of the area on the golf cart. 

We woke up Friday morning to lots of rain. We got ready and ventured out. Our first stop was back in Destin at the Donut Hole. Oh. My. Gosh. Adam and I may drive back just to go there. The place is amazing. I suggest trying one of everything. You won't regret it. 

After breakfast we went back to the house and let the kids go to Baytowne Wharf, which is just a golf cart ride away, to play in the arcade. [At this point it is still pouring down rain.] We made the most of it and had some fun playing games. 

The rain finally started to clear up and we got to take a fun bike ride through the area. I snapped this picture on Adam's phone, because of course, mine was dead. 

We then headed back to Baytowne Wharf for dinner. After we ate the kids and Adam did the zip line and a few more things. That's right, Vivie is FOUR and did it. The girl is fearless.  The wharf has the cutest shops and the best place to get ice-cream!

The next morning, Saturday, we packed everything up and headed to do a little shopping at the outlets. I scored a few things at Gap! We had lunch with the Tims then said our goodbyes. Adam and I headed to check out the beaches on 30A. We had the best time driving down the highway and stoping in each town to take in everything. We loved it. Adam scored his Easter bow tie while we were there and I got a little seaside lovin!

We made one last stop at the Donut Hole to bring back the delicious goodness.

I am seriously so thankful for the much needed break from school. Now just 28 more days and we are out for SUMMER!!
