On Saturday June 7th we woke up early and started our way down to Destin, FL! We were so excited to travel down to Destin and get to spend a week with his family (minus Tim and Jennilee).

When we got there on Saturday we checked in and started our adventures! The first two days we had to stay into a hotel together it was a little tight but we survived! The first day before we checked in we went to see a movie all together! We went to see Ironman and it was great! After check in we cleaned up and went out to eat for my birthday! We ate at Fisherman’s Wharf and man was it good! The food and the atmosphere were great! We sat outside and got to watch all the wonderful boats coming in! After Dinner we decided to go see the beach! It was amazing! We went and sat on a rock wall and watched an amazing sunset and sat and relaxed! What beautiful scenery!

Sunday we got up and had breakfast and we did a bible study together as a family and spent some time together in the word! Then we got ready and headed to the beach for the day! The beach was so pretty! I just love the turquoise waters of the gulf! Jon took his rod and reels for some fishing and everyone got to sit and relax and rest up some!

After the beach we decided to get ready and go to another movie! And to do some shopping! Jon got to go to his favorite store The Bass Pro Shop! After some shopping we had dinner at the Hard Rock CafĂ©! Tasty and Fun! It was Jon’s family’s first time eating at Hard Rock so it was really fun!

The next day we went to Fudpuckers Gator Beach for Lunch and had a lot fun seeing all the little alligators and enjoying our great food!

After Lunch and some time out on the town we decided to go hang out at the pool and condo area! Jon and Ruthanne had a few races in the pool while the rest of us rested and took in some sun!

After Dinner we went to go out on the town a little bit and went to the go cart place. Jon, Candace, and Ruthanne battled it out. After Ruthanne's car staled Candace got a little bit of a lead and stayed there the rest of the race but Jon was almost able to catch up! Brother and sister love is very cute!

On Wednesday we rented a pontoon boat and took it out on the water to do some site seeing and some fishing! Mary Ann decided to stay back and relax at the pool. We got through the harbor and out to sea and it was a little to rocky for the Candace and Ruthanne and we took them back to go hang out with their Mom. Bob, Jon and I went back out on the sea for some fishing! We caught a few but not really anything that we could keep! We had a great time and spent some great time together!

On Thursday Jon and I went out on a Deep sea fishing trip for 8 hours! We had a blast and caught a ton of fish! Here are a few pics!

For Dinner that night we went to eat at Landry's Seafood! It was fantastic! After Dinner we played some putt putt! I little humid but some great time!

The Next Afternoon we decided to go to a movie and to play putt putt again! What great fun!

For Dinner we decided to go out for a great dinner our last night in town and decided to go to Capt Kidd's Seafood Buffet and it was wonderful!
