We survived flying three hours with a two year old and had a wonderful first day of vacation. Asher insists that the travel day was actually day one, but I hardly count lugging two kids, and all their crap, across the US as relaxing so I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree.

We flew in to Tampa, rented a car and drove to Siesta Key. The place we’re staying is amazing. We’re a block from the beach, there’s also a salt water pool, WI-FI, and a small kitchenette. This is definitely a place we’d come back to visit.

Being raised near Southern California beaches, I was nervous about how much beach time we’d actually want, but the water is warm, the sand is soft and the waves are just right for the little ones. It’s rained a little off and on, usually hitting us late in the evening forcing us to run from the pool area and undress outside the room (tantalizing little tidbit, eh?).

Anyway, we are having a blast reconnecting with each other as well as extended family members. I’ve already finished one book and have started another. The kids are exhausted from yesterday so a little downtime is ordered for today.

And now, pictures!!!
