I'm trying to put all my Florida pictures in one post so brace yourselves. I've been continually trying to weed through my vacation photos and I think these are all my favorites. Hopefully it brings a little sunshine to your day, even though it is supposed to be a record-breaker today in Iowa with temps of 60 degrees (crazy!).

Our only family picture from the trip...the timer went off as Scott was trying to zip up Michael's fly. At least we're together?

My favorite day was when we did a little family of three trip to nearby Seaside, Florida. It is the town where the movie "The Truman Show" was filmed and it is such a cute town. We walked, got coffee, walked on the was awesome.

It was nice every day we were there and we made sure we got lots of beach time. The water was cold but wasn't too bad once you got in. Michael loved the sand and being able to run outside.

We went on the trip with my husband's side of the family (his parents, brother and sister's families) and his aunt's condo was our main base of operation although we each also had our own condos. Scott's aunt's condo was right on the beach and it was so awesome.

It was a great trip and I can't wait to go back again soon. I was so worried about going and being gone from home at Christmas but once we were there, there were no worries. It was very relaxing and nice to reconnect with Scott and spend lots of time with our son and other family together. I think the hardest part has been coming home and realizing that I need to keep trudging on with my real life. It is hard to stay positive especially now that is seems like there is little on the horizon to look forward to. I am trying to do some things that I can work towards and keep me motivated daily, so hopefully I will keep you updated.

Happy Thursday.
