A few weeks ago some of Brad’s family came down from Tennessee to visit us and spend a little time at the beach. They made a stop here in Jacksonville for a few days before we all headed down to Daytona Beach to relax and enjoy a little time away from it all. Sure it was strange telling people Brad and I were going to Daytona for a vacation but hey… why not!?! We stayed at a great resort right on the beach, got lots of swimming in and I even turned a darker shade of white! I tried telling people I was tan but I just got some funny looks. I get it folks, I’m white… but gosh darnit… now I’m dark white! We had a blast though. We were ready for some time away from work and a few days at the beach was exactly what we needed to rest and recharge. We didn’t take that many pictures, mostly because we were busy playing. We did get to do all the fun touristy things like play putt-putt, race go-karts and feed alligators! I loved our little vacation and having a chance to spend that time with family made it even better. Mom, Tresa, Jeff, Chelsea, and Christian… we love you guys and are so glad you came for a visit. Can’t wait to see you all again at Christmas!

Brad was pretty good… but I was better!
Brad thinking he was Ricky Bobby or something… psh

The track Jeff got kicked off of for disobeying the rules. Its always funny to watch a 16 year old kick a grown man out of a go-kart.

On to Putt-Putt (which Christian thought was pronounced Foot-Foot)
You can feed the alligators half a cut up hot dog for only $2.95!
Tresa and Chelsea show off their sassy side
Christian does the robot
B-rad’s swimming gear… sexay!
Brad was a sandcastle building machine…
This was Christian’s first time ever seeing the ocean… he was too funny when he “attacked” the waves.
Everyone should take mini vacations from time to time… even if it is just somewhere down the road. I came home feeling more energized than I had been in quite some time. There is nothing like waking up to the roar of the ocean every morning. Ahh…
