Spring Break

    Today we went with the Zindars to Panama City Fl.  First I have to thank God that we are alive.  We were driving along enjoying the sights  and made it to Panama City and all of a sudden we saw a car accident in front of us.  Jimmy jumped out he is a firefighter and an EMT.

   State Troopers have released details on a bizarre and deadly crash that involved two parked cars. Troopers say 58-year-old  hit a trash can on Front Beach Road around 11:10 a.m. He kept going and slammed into a Honda Accord in the parking lot of the Latitude 29 condominiums, pushing it into another parked car.
Colton’s truck then hit a water line, gas line and a palm tree before finally coming to a stop.
"He was going 40 or 50 mph and never put on his brakes as far as I know,”  according to someone that witnessed the crash.
  A passenger in the Accord, was taken to Bay Medical Center where he died. Another passenger, of San Antonio, Texas is listed in serious condition. The driver of the Accord, 75-year-old suffered minor injuries. Colton was not hurt. Troopers are not sure why he drove off the road. Charges are pending
   It makes me remember that we are not guaranteed that we will be here tomorrow.  I can not imagine not being able to return Ashley to her grandma and grandpa.  It makes me stop and remember how precious our lives our.
   We had a wonderful day and we are so thankful for our day.  My heart aches for the people in the accident that were on vacation also and for there families.
 We went and ate at Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville.  It was lots of fun.  Ashley entertained herself while waiting for dinner by making - A for Ashley
TY made her eye glasses that she loved.

Then we walked along the shops - I could of stayed there all day and shopped- as we were walking there was a guy with a Parrot on the sidewalk.  Of course Ashley had to get close.
Then we came back to the house - hit the pool for a little bit - so glad we have a heated pool.  We also did some Karaoke around the pool.
This is Shelly up singing and we were clapping to the music.  Shelly can really sing....So it was an enjoyment to hear her.
Life does not get any better then this.
After that we decide to go out for a little while. Went to the outlet mall and went out for pizza and also went to a 31 yogurt bar.  Ashley loves her toppings. 
I can't believe the week is almost over!!!!!
I can't believe my parents move in 2 days from the house they have owned for 36 years.

Destin 2013

The sun was out today.  It was 73 out and hardly any wind.  We just soaked up the rays.  My kind of life.

Today we also celebrated Sophia birthday.  Sophia turned 3 today.  Just think I celebrated my birthday Saturday in Destin and today Sophia.  We could not think of a better way to spend our birthdays!

We had the party around the pool.  Ashley did not make it to the party she was having a melt down and decide to take a nap.  Sharing is hard with lots of kids.

Tracey made the cake.  It turned out great - Sophia wanted a pink cross cake.

Then in the evening went down to the beach for some pictures.  I had to wake Ashley up for the outing.  We wanted a group photo to put on the wall of the house we are staying at.  Ashley and I were sporting the ILLINI in our pictures.

This is a group picture of the kids.  I just love them all!!!!

We are so lucky to have great friends in our lives......

Spring Break

    This is how Ashley traveled to Destin - She loves Grandpa's Nook.    The girls were wonderful on the drive to Destin....

This is the house we are staying in.  I have been thinking how will I ever be able to top this spring break?   Ashley is going to think this is the norm for Spring break - I think this is my first Spring Break trip.

This is the guest house that Drew and Shelly and Drew parents are staying in.  Underneath is the Tiki bar.
This is the bedroom Ashley picked out.  She is in heaven here.....

This is our pool at the house we are staying out.  Across the way is a hotel.

 Sunday Ashley spent the day in the pool.  She had me go out and get her goggles that also cover her nose - Ty and JD also have a pair.  She looks like a space man.  Yesterday and today she has had a bloody nose in the pool because she has been holding her nose when she swims and holding the her nose from the inside instead of the outside.

We also spent time at the beach that is in our backyard!  She wanted to wear those goggles.  I have news for her we are not taking them to Sholom this summer.
This is Ashley and Olivia enjoying their time on the beach.
Amanda , Ashley and Olivia.
I like this picture of the girls looking at the water.
I wish I would of got a picture of Ashley jumping the waves....  Remember Ashley has no fear.........

We also went to the outlet mall today.....  Ashley was a great Shopper she went with Shelly and Tracey and Kristy and I.  I am so thankful that she was so good - she might of had some practice shopping before.

I am so thankful Ashley is still going to sleep at 7:30 like she usually does.  If they did not say the pool was closed at night she would stay in it all night......
