Vacation in Florida

In September Ed and I went down to stay at my parents condo for a week.(Thanks mom & dad!!!) It was SO nice to get away from work and life for a week and just relax! We didn't plan it, but we were also down there on the anniversary of us being together for 5 years (awww sooo sweet!)

Getting there was a fiasco as always. Would it kill someone to let us have a trip with good travel luck? We left our Minneapolis gate and then came back and sat at the gate for an hour.....thus missing our layover in Atlanta (in retrospect i shouldn't have thought 45 minutes was enough....but who am i kidding, Atlanta is ALWAYS delayed!!!!) We managed to get on standby on the last flight out of Atlanta once we got there and we made that flight. However we did not make the rental car store which was closed. We got the last car at a neighboring rental car place which was fortunate but it was so small Eds head practically touched the roof! Oh least we made it!!!!

Our days consisted of sleeping in, going to the pool, playing mini golf, happy hour, and dinner somewhere fun (live band or on the beach!). It was perfect! The weather was almost perfect too. We had 2 really rainy days in the middle (Thanks hurricane issaac reminants) but the rest were great. We managed to make do on the rainy days and did bowling, shopping, a movie, arcade games, and drinking :)

Towards the end of the trip we made our drive to Seaside Florida that I insist on every time we go to PCB. Seaside is where the Truman show movie with Jim Carrey was filmed and its the cutest little seaside town. I love walking around and seeing the houses. Theres also a GREAT bar on the beach with a beautiful sunset view that clearly we couldn't pass up. As always it was great to get back home to see Mav....but I am missin the beach already!!! Here are some (ok a lot) of pics from the week!

Drinks at the Atlanta airport to de-stress once we knew we'd get to PCB that night

Just some snacks for the week
