Restin In Destin!!!

It has really been a super busy summer but absolutely fun. First, we went to California for my nephew's 25th wedding anniversaly celebration. Then, we went to Utah to check out the condo that John's daughter and family bought in a ski resort. Then we came back to our home airport only for me to check right back in to go to Illinois ( I had packed an extra suitcase which I left in the vehicle in the parking lot while we were in Utah) for my mother's 94th birthday celebration and John went home. I came back home after 4 days, only to pack for Destin, FL. I have been to 5 states in the month of July, nope, actually 6, because the closest airport is in Louisiana so count LA as the 6th. I am glad to be home sweet home now although I will miss all the family fun times. Now, back to Skype and Facetime!

I hope I get to post about my other trips later but let me share the latest one. We drove to Destin, about a 7 hour drive from here. My daughter Rochelle and family drove from the Tampa Bay area for about the same distance. Destin is midway between us so it is a perfect spot for us to meet. We rented a 2 bedroom condo in Sandestin and it was perfect for all of us with a lakeview from both living and master bedroom balconies.



The twins have grown so much since I last saw them in April.



John and Derek set up the umbrellas and cabana but had to take down the cabana cause they said it was obscuring the beach view from behind.

Halle looks so much like my other grandbaby Reese in this position. She is so chubby,  lol! She was almost a lb. lighter than Rea at birth but is now almost 2 lbs. heavier and she is younger.



Of course, grandma would rather babysit than swim and watch the babies while they napped.




Divas in training!

AJ took Halle for a swim after the nap. I cannot believe how much AJ has grown. I am only about a cm. taller than her now and we have the same shoe size.

My daughter Rochelle and her hubby, Derek and 3 daughters.










 The twins loved the water.



Time to pack up and go home. It was very hot and humid! This is Rea with lots of hair.

And this is Halle, still no hair like John. lol!


I am going to miss them so much but I will be very busy catching up on things at home since I was barely here for the whole month. Thanks for stopping by!
