I am so glad that we were able to spend 7 days in Florida with my family. It has been amazing being only 7 hours away from them, being able to have that quality time together is wonderful.
We arrived on Monday and opened Christmas gifts, the kids were all spoiled and it was great seeing them so happy. We actually didn't take any pictures because we were just enjoying the moments. Celebrating E's 1st Christmas with family was priceless.
My sister and I were able to have a girls day on Tuesday. We drove to Panama City, had lunch, and did some shopping. It was so much fun to have that time together because we don't get to do it very often. We may or may not have spent way too much at Target haha but it was fun.
Wednesday, my Dad took us all out to dinner at BJ's Brewhouse in Pensacola. He loves doing this for Christmas and it has become a tradition the last few years. E even got a taste of mashed potatoes, she is a fan haha.
On Thursday my Dad and Kyle went shooting. My sisters neighbor took them out to his brothers house so they could shoot the arsenal of weapons that my Dad has haha. They had a great time and I was happy that they were able to spend that time together.
Friday, my sister had to work so we decided to take Kylie and Grayson out for the day. My Dad offered to watch E so we took them to lunch at Olive Garden and then to go Go-Karting. We had such a blast with them and we even hit up the arcade where they had a blast. We love having that time with them. That night we headed over to the neighbors house for a fun get together.
Saturday was NYE so we had a small BBQ with my sisters neighbors. We ate a lot of yummy food, played Cards Against Humanity and actually stayed up to ring in the New Year. Well, E went to bed but the rest of us stayed up. (Oh and before anyone asks yes that is an urn on the table, my Mom wanted to play cards :) )
Sunday was mostly a relaxed day we went bowling in the afternoon and then decided to take some family photos. We have not had a photo of all of us done in a very long time!
I love how it turned out!
I am definitely grateful for this time with family! I will certainly miss it when the time comes to move.
