Our summer vacation

We had a great time in Panama City.  We traveled down in three cars.  My mom and Tre took the granddaughters.  Clint took the guys in his truck, and me and my sister rode in my Corvette with the top down until it got too hot.  We had a good time listening to some old tapes I found from high school and some country music which we sang our hearts out to. 

When we got there, we headed straight to the beach because our room was not ready.  But, we didn't have to wait long to get in.  After we settled in, we had dinner in the condo and enjoyed our first night as much as we could.  We went to the beach and pool every day.  Some mornings I took the kids to the beach and/or pool which was fun for me.  Summer was not always an enthusiastic partner, so she didn't get to go every time we did. 

We tried to swim out the the sand bar a couple of times so we could get some sand dollars, but we had no luck.  We did encounter a few jelly fish which was not a highlight of our day.  We got to see sharks, rays, and dolphins swimming down the coastline several times.  It was pretty neat. 

There were more fireworks on the 4th of July than I have ever seen in my life.  It went on for over 3 hours.  It was pretty awesome.  We watched them from the balcony for a while, but after the kids went to bed we went to the beach to join my brother.  Summer did not get to see any fireworks since they started after she was in bed....maybe next year. 

It went by WAAAYYYY too fast.  We did not get to do all the things we wanted to do like go deep sea fishing or play miniature golf.  But, we didn't really miss them.  We had a good time just being together.

Thanks Sunny!  We did have a great time.  Summer's hair is getting longer, but I can hardly get it into a pony tail holder on top of her head....I have bought like a million, so I can't wait until it gets a little bit longer so I can use them.  :)
