Arriving in Florida....

We arrived in Florida late Sunday night and pretty much went straight to bed! Well, besides bringing in all of our stuff and getting the kids settled down from all the excitement of getting there! The next morning, we took a little walk around our condos. We stayed at a place called Madeira Beach Yacht club. We had the best of both worlds because it was on the bay side but also just right across the street from the ocean too!

The condos are the white structures on the right of this photo. Our particular condo was on inside so no fancy view but obviously it was only a few steps away!! The boys loved the boats so that was a bonus!

Our next stop was walking to the beach! The photo above is the first time they saw the beach! The only one who has seen the beach before was Grace so it was very exciting to take the boys there for the first time!!
We had perfect weather all week long!! It started in the seventies and ended up in the nineties by Friday with blues skies every day!
