Greetings from Fort Walton Beach, Florida! We are on our way to Tallahassee to take Mike to FSU's freshman orientation, but we decided to come down a couple days early for a beach mini-vacation. I tried to post last night, but the wi-fi in our hotel room was acting wonky, so it just wasn't happening.
Last night we went to dinner at Gilligan's in Destin. We had fried cheese and steamed oysters and grouper--on sandwiches and platters. Oh, yeah, and Gilly punch and beer for the grown-ups:
Today we spent the entire day on the beach. I was worried about the weather, which was rainy this morning. It cleared off though and stayed beautiful throughout the day. Here are the kids this morning when we got to the beach:
Now they look pretty much the same, just pinker in spots. Yes, we probably overdid it, but this was our one and only beach day, and we weren't giving up a minute!
