Vacation is the most underrated thing in the world. I mean honestly, what is not absolutely perfect about stepping outside of your daily routine, outside of your element, and having nothing to do other than whatever moves you? We have decided that it takes 3 days to completely unwind and relax and then you need at least 4 more days of stress free living.
This past week, we hit up Longboat Key, Florida. It is an amazing little key just outside of Sarasota near Siesta Key and Anna Marie Island. We had no idea where we were truly going when we booked our trip to this little key, but are so glad we ventured out and tried something new. Our condo was literally steps away from the where the tide broke, our porch looked right out onto the water, we were in and out all day long, and the beach was our playground.
The first few days of our trip Michelle, Fred, and Baby Teagan came down to join us. Quinn got a taste of what it was like to have to share (he has major only child syndrome) and Teagan, for some reason, just adored her cousin even when he would "hip-check" her to get her out of his way. We spent our days walking the beach, digging in the sand, picking up seashells, jumping waves, and equally enjoying the sunshine and our naps.
Enjoy a few of our hundreds of pictures that we took!
