After our impromptu, but successful, trip to South Padre in May, Danny and I got the crazy idea to road trip to the family condo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. That's 20 hours away (non-stop) folks. We have three children ages four years old and under. We are either crazy or just desperate for a little vacation.
We decided to drive straight through the night to get there in one day, and then take three days to come home. We figured that our excitement to see the beach would motivate our drive there and that breaking up the long drive home would make the ride more bearable. It was easier driving out there than I expected, although it took Danny a good day to recoup and I think we'd probably road trip that way again in the future.
These photos are from our first day on the beach. The boys were still timid of the water, unsure of the sand sticking to their hands and overall overjoyed to be out of the car.
