4th 5K

Every July 4th our boys start the holiday by running in our towns Freedom Fest 5k run! That is Collin in the orange shirt. Somehow I lost the picture of Austin at the start of the race.

 Austin didn't feel very good on race morning, but still ran a pretty good race.
 Collin ran an awesome race!
 He actually beat Austin!

 Austin came in about 30 sec behind Austin!
 Collin won his age group! He was 12th overall out of about 400 runners!
Austin was 8th in his age group, and 17th overall!

 Our last night of vacation we opted for a sunset dolphin cruise. After a great last day on the beach we headed back to the Harbor Walk to board the Sea Blaster!

 The winds had picked up in the afternoon, and when we lest the bay the water was a little rough! Paige was not so sure about being on a boat that was being tossed around! Because of the rough water we were worried that we wouldn't get to see any dolphins!
 We were wrong!
 We saw several different groups of dolphins swimming! They were really cool to watch!

 My happy, wind blown family! We had an amazing vacation!

Good eats

One of the best things about vacation is all the great places you get to eat! When else do you eat out 5 nights in one week.

 Destin has a lot of great places to eat! We mostly ate at touristy places. The food was really good, but the prices pretty high! Note for next year, budget more money for food!The Crab Trap was right across the street from the house we stayed in. We ate there Sunday night. Graffiti's was the one local place we ate at. It was a cool pizza place. The walls were covered with art that local artist had done. All of the art was for sale.

 McGuire's is a cool place that has $1 bills all over the walls, ceiling, everywhere! They have great steaks!
 Harry T's is at the Harbor Walk and so is the Crazy Lobster. Of the 2 I would recommend Harry T's!

Destin 2012

Last week we spent our family vacation in Destin Florida with two other families.

We had a great time! Six adults and six kids!

I didn't really pack clothes for us to do pictures, but I think these turned out pretty good!
