I Call a DO OVER

Our Florida vacation was the first time we've ever been on a "family" vacation with friends. I can't say I'd do it again. It's not that we had a horrible time, but cooking and cleaning for 9 people alone was a chore. There just wasn't enough relaxin'. Us girls did a pretty damn fine job keepin' up with things while the boys pretty much sat on their asses and watched. I guess to expect anything more would have been foolish. Boys will be least until you kick 'em in the ass and tell 'em to straighten the hell up!

The first day we were in Florida, we wasted no time gettin' to the beach. It was by far my most favoritest day. The kids were anxious to get in the water and after the drive and unloading the cars, we were ready for a drink or two.

Nope, that ain't sweet tea. Ok, well maybe it is...sorta.

As for me, I drank heaven from this cup all week long.

Heaven I tell you. Some weird flavor of Crystal light and vodka. Up until recently, I steered clear of vodka because of its evil ways. I've grown up and so has vodka so we get along quite fancy now. Despite my best efforts, I stayed sober all week. Ok, so I didn't put in my best effort. Ya know....the whole "family" vacation thing. The last thing I ever wanna hear my kids say is "Daddy, is Mama drunk?"

We certainly did have an awesome time the first day. It wasn't long before the sun was already settin' it's little sun self down so it wasn't unbearable without shade of some sort.

It's also the perfect time to take beach pictures I think. Just get the sun to your back and voila! Kick ass pictures....

In Panama City, everyone sets up canopies for shade and just leaves all their stuff (chairs, towels, etc.) out at night. Pretty trusting I think, but hells yeah, I'm all up for not paying twenty somethin' dollars a day to rent the lounge chairs and umbrella (turns out I was wrong....just rent that shit. $20 for the first day and $10 for everyday after....just do it! It's SO worth it....very relaxin'!).

Anyhow, we got ourselves a canopy. An eyeball nearly being poked out and a thousand curses later, the damn thing was up. I gave it 24 hours. I think it actually lasted two days. It was totally flattened one night in a storm. Poor little blue tent.
We ended up stayin' inside a couple days, because the boy's face got so totally burned.
Looking back, I wish I would've taken the girl out and just rented those dang chairs. I think the boy would've been just fine with it. He was all consumed and as happy as could be watching Van Helsing over and over and over.
We did rent the lounge chairs the last two days we were there. HEA-VEN!!!

We ended up sayin' goodbye to the beach a day earlier than expected. We did go out to the beach early before the storms came in that would last the remainder of the day. Stupid storms.

I'm so glad we got to go on vacation this year. So VERY, VERY grateful. I still wish I could start all over and do it again! Until next time.....

Seriously! I think it was some sorta mixed fruit Crystal Light. It was so good, it'd make you wanna smack your mama!

That is my drink of choice!! Always!! Walmart makes knock off Crystal Light and they got all kinds of flavors! It's my skinny drink...sugar free, calorie free, and carb's awesome!

I haven't exactly "moved on". I'm actually about to sit down with a nice glass of GT now!
