Destin

We stayed at a resort called Emerald Shores.

With several of us staying in two large condos, it was hard to keep quiet so others could sleep in... One morning, I took the kiddos for an early morning walk down to the beach, which wasn't more than 200 yards from where we were staying. **And we couldn't see any oil balls or sludge or anything from where we stood.

It was a gorgeous morning...
I was pushing Tyler in the stroller, so we didn't actually go down to the beach, but we stopped on the sidewalk to watch the waves... and reminisce about our Hawaii. *sigh*
Running ahead of Mommy just because she could...
Before returning to our condo, we decided to walk down a couple blocks to see if the other condo full of Turners was up and around...

We were in luck. Grandma and Grandpa Turner, Aunt Becky and Uncle Phil and Aunt Liz were out on the porch....

We sat outside and talked, while Tyler decided to take advantage of his Uncle Phil's lap and snuggle up for a morning nap.
The view from our front door to the pool across the driveway. We took advantage of that nearly every day. The kids loved the pool and McKenzie insisted we needed to get one in our backyard.

It was raining on this particular day.

Addison talked us into letting her ride the carousel at the mall one day...
And daddy caught a quick video on his cell phone...
