This year for Thanksgiving we started a new tradition.... Turkey day (or week) at the beach! :)
Pretty cool tradition, right? The Tuesday before Thanksgiving we loaded up the car and the kiddos and headed due East to Panama City Beach, Florida. We were joined by Jason's family members from Ohio and North Carolina for one big get together in warm, sunny, sandy PCB.
I now invite you to sit back and prepare to be photo-bombed. :)
|I love this picnic table. Someday I will recreate it!|
We spent A LOT of time in the sand. Our boys couldn't get enough of it. We flew kites, played bocce ball, dug holes, tossed around the football and dodged in and out of the water in bare feet. Heaven.
Jason's Mom was an ultra-planner and prepared everything we needed to have our own Thanksgiving feast at the beach house. It was delicious! And, yes, those are Grandma's red macaronis. Yum!
Jason's parents really wanted to celebrate Christmas a family, since we won't be going to Ohio this year for the holiday. So they brought down a little tree and even decorated it! We had our own small Christmas while we were there. The boys just loved it. :)
|Aidan loved the playdoh set that he got as a gift.|
And the sunsets... oh how beautiful they were! The sun seemed to set so quickly though, so you really had to be ready with your camera or you'd miss it. I've never seen such beautiful colors! :)
So there we have it. A wonderful family vacation at the beach. We can't wait to do it again next year! :)
