thursday was our last full day in florida. everyone slept until after 8, and lane and knox made it to 9!
it was a beautiful morning so we were fast moving to get down to the pool to take full advantage!
we spent the afternoon laying out, cleaning the condo and packing. lauren wanted to hit up a souvenir shop so i tagged along. i found this personalized license plate with my name spelled CORRECTLY! 10 year old kelli would've totally bought this. heck, 26 year old kelli really wanted to! when i was younger, i always wanted stuff with my name on it, but could never find it spelled with an "i".
that evening, we had reservations at the yummy, fisherman's corner. it was ranked #1 on all the review websites. my mimi had had it for lunch, but never dinner. it was SO good! seriously, if you are in the pensacola/orange beach/gulf shores area, it's totally worth the drive to perdido key! the next 3 pictures are of what entertained my kids while they waited for dinner. canon played with lala's phone.
ledger mooched off chloe's salad. and pretty much ate it all.
knox was happy playing with daddy!
florida, you were good to our family! we hope to be back next year. it was so great spending so much time with my family. they are lots of fun! we also enjoyed being with mimi so much since we don't get to see her that often. we love you all!
we left the condo at 5 the next morning for the LONG drive back. it was awful driving through the day. next time, we have to drive a long distance, we are totally going through the night again! after a couple of turn-arounds, a longer route, 2 meals, 2 potty breaks, an hr of stand still traffic, we finally made it home! it felt so great!!
