2009 Family Vacation

This year our we went to Destin, Florida for our family vacation. I had never heard of the place until recently...but everyone that we told said it was very family friendly, and just a great place to vacation!

We left for our trip on Friday, April 24, and we got home on Thursday, April 29. 

We had such a fantastic time! Our hotel was wonderful. We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with a full kitchen & living room. The hotel was on the grounds of a resort, so we got to use all of the resort amenities. There were several pools that we could go to, and the private beach was literally a 2 minute drive. 

The beach had the whitest sand that I've ever seen, and it was very clean. It was not overcrowded, so we had plenty of room to set up our 'stuff'!

There were 2 outlet malls within 10 minutes driving, so we made sure to go to both...more than once! I got a new COACH purse that I just absolutely LOVE!

We definitely got our fill of shopping, eating and beach! It's definitely a place that I would go back to, and I think it would be fun for a group to go to!

I did get pretty sunburned, so we cut our trip a little short. We drove back all in one day, and I can say that I definitely preferred that over turning it into a 2 day trip. The drive wasn't bad at all!!!

Here are a few pictures from the trip. The rest can be seen on my smugmug:
