We went on a mini vacation to Fort Walton Beach this Memorial Day Weekend. We had to get away before our summer got messed up by my surgery. We did a little internet surfing and found a condo on Okaloosa Island at Fort Walton Beach. The kids absolutely had a wonderful time. We got there on Friday afternoon and was able to spend a little time on the beach. Saturday morning, we woke up to a thunderstorm. That was a little disappointing but by lunch it had stopped raining and we were able to get out and play. It was very cloudy and windy but that didn't stop us from having fun. Sunday was a nice sunny day and we had a nice afternoon on the beach and that evening we took a walk down the beach. Of course on Monday morning when we had to leave, it was the perfect day to be at the beach. But, we will hopefully return next year and stay longer.
Starting a sandcastle and not finishing the sandcastle. The water is much more exciting.

I have a lot more pictures of our vacation but they are on our new video camera and since it is late and I don't feel like taking the time to figure out how to put them on the camera. So once that gets done, I can post those pictures.
