Family photo at Fuddpucker's where Kaden got his first fake tattoo...which better be the only tattoo he ever gets!!! :) Side Note-Fuddpucker's was the location of a night out on my Destin Bachlorette Party 6 years ago!
Group shot of Chris, Brenna, Mia, Jhean, Jaque and Mindy on the boat ride to the private beach. This was the only day Jhean was able to join us. She is 9 weeks pregnant and was sick the whole trip :(

We returned yesterday from what is now going to be our annual pilgrimage to the beach. We usually visit the Destin area each summer, but found a new stomping ground this year as well as some awesome travel buddies. We stayed at the Emerald Grande at Harbor Walke Village. The place is its own little community right on the Destin Harbour complete w/ restaurants, entertainment, bars, boat docks, coffee shops, ice cream and shopping...my kind of place. Our condo was just the perfect size for all of us and had an awesome corner balcony w/ views galore. I loved drying my hair and looking out on the sail boats in the water. Our friend Jeff liked the balcony so much that he slept out there every night. The Harbour walk provided us w/ great seafood at Harry T's and Lucky Snapper and our New Orleans natives were right at home w/ a Daiquiri shop, Pat O's and Commander's Palace at our fingertips.
Our travel companions were our good friends Jeff and Sarah, Chris and Mindy and their daughter Brenna, and Chris' sister and her husband and daughter Mia. Jeff and Keith have been friends since they were 5 growing up in New Orleans and Jeff and his wife now live in the Atlanta area. Chris, Mindy and the others all live in New Orleans area. Its always a blast when we all get together. We did a lot of swimming and sun bathing on this trip. Kaden has become quite the little fish these days. However, we did manage to fit in a few activities...fireworks show, theater under the stars and ice cream, outlet shopping, go carts, flying kites, arts and crafts, train ride on the boardwalk, boat ride, Fuddpuckers dinner, and Kaden and Kendall's first trip to a water park! I, who rarely eats seafood, even feasted on crab cakes and crab legs :) I wish Sarah and I could have been video taped while trying to actually eat the crab legs!!!
