Wade Beach Trip – 2015

Last week marked possibly my favorite week of the year – Wade family beach vacation week. My parents discovered Destin, FL when I was a toddler. It was still a sleepy Gulf of Mexico fishing town in the mid-80s. (No, that’s not a typo. Shut it). And it’s just been our spot ever since then. Now it seems like everyone knows about and loves Destin – so we’ve pushed our family vacations till just before peak summer season to avoid the crowds and rental rate hikes.

I can’t tell you how much this week means to me. Now that Josh has his own family (who knew a 17 month old person needs double the luggage of two grown adults?), we rent a big house so we can spread out a bit. It is just glorious. Vacations look a little different – waking up at 6 a.m. because there is a toddler pacing outside your door, going to dinner in shifts – but this vacation was the best yet. It’s so fun experiencing everything through my nephew’s eyes. Not to mention getting to hang out with those other people I love so much.

It was also priceless to finally have Justin spend more than a quick weekend with the Wades. So glad he sacrificed a whole week of work to tag along with us. 🙂

As usual, I cried a little when we left. Health and family – the two things in life that are such a deep blessing and we should never take for granted while we’ve got them.

Now here’s some vacation eye candy for you. Most taken by my fabulous sister-in-law, or at least her fabulous camera.

Until next time, Wades! Love you all so much.

XOXO,
Jenn
