This year, for our summer vacation, we decided that is was just a Staycation type of year. So, Patrick and I put our heads together and came up with some pure family fun for 3 days. We stepped away from everything and just spent lots of time together! we started the vacation time with a trip to Checkers!
Then, for dinner we decided to do a crawfish boil (with mussels and shrimp thrown in) It was so delicious!!
My kids are definitely seafood lovers!
We played lots of games of Sorry, Settlers of Catan, Connect Four, and taught our kids how to play O Shaw. It was so fun and these kids are good!
We had a craft night and dyed and created coffee filter flowers. They turned out so pretty!! I love the look on my artsy husband's face. :o) What a cutie!
Aren't they so pretty!?! We followed most of the instructions on this video.
I love these expressions....what's running through each of their cute heads?
We ended our Staycation with a trip to a new-to-us State Park, San Felasco Hammock Preserve. They have lots of trails! We picked our route and started walking!
We saw pretty flowers and a few deer.
We walked and walked and walked. And....got lost. We went round and round in circles and sweated galore! But, we were together and we had fun! And when we finally got to our car we were so thankful for air conditioning!! (And drive thru McDonalds!!)
It was a wonderful time together for our Staycation. So thankful for this great family of mine!
