Spring Break 2007 Rocks!

wow it was worth the last minute reservation, driving instead of flying and even two days of chilly weather...since we came home to some snow in the air!

It was even worth the throwing up at 2am on Saturday morning; the day we were to leave at 6am, when Nash decided to get sick. erg. So we waited it out, and left at mid afternoon. You can tell we are "seasoned" parents now....heck, he can throw up just as well in the van as in bed, right? Forge ahead!

So Nash was ok, not great, but we made it to Nashville TN, our first stop. He slept in, we took our time, and the rest of the week was fantastic! I love the beach at Destin Florida, and we plan to return next year!

For Dr. Carol in Alabama and all striving for civil rights

Football on the beach!

and what we saw on the way home

Love the Alabama sign Jan :) Looks like Nash is a regular NFL player - and the beach looks wonderful!!!

Glad that Nash is feeling better - and you're right - you can throw up just as well in the van as at home in bed :) hee hee
