"I want to splash at the beach"

The title of this post is a quote from Jonah who helped us decide our vacation destination. Thanks to everyone who gave us some great ideas, they all sounds nice and relaxing to me, but really I was having trouble making a decision and Jake was vetoing everything. But then Jonah put in his two cents which reminded Jake to remind me that his uncle did have a condo close to the beach in Florida.

Free lodging along with Jonah's request helped us to put our vacation location search to an end. So we are off in just a little more than a week to enjoy a relaxing week at the beach and I even think I talked Jake into doing something the typical tourist might do- visit Busch Gardens (he still couldn't be talked into Disney World). Now that our lodging is taken care of we are still trying to decide if we are going to fly or drive (even the travel agent suggested we drive because flights to Florida are high right now). But checking out rates and so forth is keeping me busy for the time being, which has been good for me. But I'm thinking a little sun and sand might even be better!

i suggest driving because 1.) american airlines just cancelled a bajillion of their flights and that would stink if that happened to you right before what is supposed to be a relaxing vacation and 2.) you could stop by owensboro and see some good friends who love you guys!

Jonah is like some kind of genius coming up with that idea. Sounds good for the whole family too. A little chill time splashing at the beach.

We just returned from Florida . . . my boys loved the beach so much. They just hopped up every morning and wanted to get right down to that sand and water. And then they slept for like 12 hours at night. (Disney didn't impress them and entertain them as much as the beach.) It was very relaxing for all of us.
