Last week we headed down to Florida to visit friends and family once again. It was a great trip and this time Little L actually stayed awake at the beach... The drive home was fairly miserable with the older two fighting like cats and dogs, but after two quick (ha!) stops in Tampa and Gainesville, they finally settled down for the ride home. The entire trip back took 14 hours. Ugh.
If you ever take a Florida trip and are lucky enough to stay near the beach, the nicest time to go is 5 pm.... the sun isn't so bright, the wind isn't so windy, and you don't have to schlep a bunch of junk with you like coolers and sunshades - a couple of towels and a bag o' sand toys and you are good to go!
