Vacation Recap June 26th (Kid Free!!!)

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

Day 2 of our kid free vacation.

We started the day with breakfast at Sandcastle’s. The food was pretty good. Sandcastles is one of several restaurants located on the premises of the resort. We had made to order Belgium waffles.

We decided that we would be lazy and rest on this vacation so we arranged for beach setup which included 2 lounge chairs and a beach umbrella set up near the shore line. It was a perfect day for relaxing at the beach. The temperature was around 95 but there was a constant breeze that helped to keep it cool.

We decided on sushi for dinner at Hadashi. It was great. Dinner was late due to a 3:00 lunch, so the restaurant was very quiet with only a few other diners.

Over all day 2 of our kid free vacation was awesome. The weather was perfect, the food was great and it was wonderful to be able to just focus on David and me.

Vacation Recap June 25th (Kid Free!!!)

Caleb turned 13. We celebrated yesterday with family so today was a scaled back day for him. We took him to breakfast with my parents and my grandparents.

Around 11am David and I left for a kid free vacation. The kids stayed with my parents. It has been 2 years since our last vacation with just the two of us, so it was long over due. We decided to go to the Hilton in Sandestin. We got a great room called the King Ambassador Parlor Suite, it is basically 2 rooms a living area and a bedroom. The view from the room is awesome. The room has lots of windows with a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico.

We arrived in Sandestin too early to check in so we hit the outlet mall. We did not buy much but just walked around looking at stuff. We were able to check in around 4:00. We decided on Ruth Chris Steak House for dinner. Neither of us had ever had the pleasure of dining there. The food and atmosphere was wonderful. It was a nice romantic dinner. After dinner we took a walk on the beach. I wish I could say it was wonderful, but I can’t. It was hot and sticky even after the sun went down. However, it was nice to just be with David without the distraction of the kids.

Day 1 of our kid free vacation was pretty great.
