Vacation 2010- Panama City Beach, FL

For Christmas, as part of our gift, my parents gave us a trip to FL. So, this past week we loaded up and headed down to Panama City to this awesome beach house that my parents rented. It was really nice & had 3 stories so we had tons of room. Hanna, Brent, and Britlee had the 3rd floor to themselves while my parents, Tyler, and Brooke (who sweetly shared with Makenzie) each had their own bedroom and bathroom on the second floor. Wayne, Presley, and I had the 1st floor. We also had a private pool which was great because our kids practically lived in it!

We had SUCH a great time that none of us wanted to leave!  We took the girls to Gulf World Marine Park (their 2nd time there although they were really too young to remember it last time), and they loved watching all the shows.  They wanted to see each and every one of them too so we spent about 4 hours there that day.

Is this too sweet or what?  This is very rare lol!  Not so much for Makenzie, but for Presley.  Normally, Presley is not really affectionate.  She likes for Mommy to hold her and love on her, but that's about it. If Makenzie tries to give her a hug or kiss she usually tries pushing her away so I'm so glad I caught this moment! We had just left the Dolphin show (their favorite) & they were so excited about it that they were hugging and kissing each other lol.

We spent the majority of our time on the beach, and I must confess, on this trip we played so long and so much that I often left the camera and video camera in the house on accident.  We really didn't get much on video this year, and I really hate that.  We also never did get a good family picture on the beach like I wanted.  It really makes me sad that I didn't do a better job with this, but I CAN say that I really focused on my family, my kids especially, and didn't worry so much about anything else.  This trip was all about relaxing and destressing for me, and that's exactly what I did!  Guess we'll just have to go back again soon so that I can get the rest of those pics I wanted lol!

Ok...I HAD to share this pic because every time I see it, it cracks me up!  Presley, for some odd reason, is going through a pirate stage.  She loves them!  I don't know where her fascination comes from or who has been telling/showing her pirate things, but she'll walk around our house making this face and saying, "Argh Maties!" We get so tickled at her.  Anyway, while we were at Gulf World, we came across these hats in the gift shop, and of course, she ran right to them! Thank goodness I had the camera ready and was anticipating "the look" lol!  LOVE it!!! Can we say this one is definitely Daddy's little tomboy? Yep, I think so!!
