This is the house that we always rent for a week!!!
"Just In Thyme"
located on Thyme street in Seaside, FL
( I know this may sound corny but I like to think of it as vacation is Just In Thyme...)
PS. you can find this in VRBO.COM if you are ever interested
On Sunday we attended church at the Seaside Chapel! It is so beautiful and pleasant inside.....
(for all you ladies that dream of a beach wedding and still want the traditional chapel experience.... keep this in mind for your ceremony and then have your reception on the beach)
Going to eat at Louis Louis :)
You have to check out the SPREAD that the girls prepared our last night!!! We decided to stay in and have a relaxing night!
*Shrimp *Corn on the cob *Potatoes *Italian Bread
(I must admit that this was my first attempt with the FISH EYE LENS on my new camera. I have to continue to study this function, but I know that it is beneficial in capturing larger spaces)
To top off our fun night at our home away from home, we enjoyed a fun game of
APPLES TO APPLES
Everyone needs this game at their house!!!
We all had a "family portrait" made the night we took our big group family photo!!
J.Jay and Myself
Scott & Stacy
Brent, Lindsay & Lucas
Brad, Sarah & Parker
Joey & Miriam
The rest of our enjoyable week was spent relaxing on the beach or by the pool, shopping & just spending time with each other. Although, I did begin reading a wonderful book the first day of vacation and just finished it a couple of nights ago. . . . ladies this book is a MUST!!!
Onto the REAL LIFE... after vacation.....
