Panama City Florida!

I have lots to say and lots to type...but i can hardly keep my eyes open. So with that being said, here some pics from our trip. I'll go back and label them tomorrow but i've been working on posting them for a few hours now...so i wanted to get some put up.

All in all we had a wonderful time. We couldn't have asked for any better weather...it was beautiful and sunny the whole time..totally worth the 12 hour + drive, less the horrible customer service from holiday inn, which i'll write about in another post.
Enjoy the pics...check back tomorrow when i'm not exhausted from being up since 3am(literally) and i'll put captions with each pic!

Hope ya'll had a great week! I sure did miss checking and writing blogs!

Just glad we made it home safe and sound!

Our picnic on the way to FL, at a state park...i think this was in Mississippi!
Here is Hannah giving the honk sign for the 18 wheelers driving by as we sat and had a snack! Another cute pic of the girls!The long bridge in LA! I love this bridge...it freaks me out, but it's soo neat to see all the swamps!This was in Pensacola...the first beach we saw on the way towards Panama City Beach! HOLY SMOKES...it was sooo beautiful!This was the view from our balcony! GEORGOUS...and they even baby proofed it for us with this netting so the kids could go out on the balcony and not slip through the bars!

I thought it did...but looking at it now...it doesn't!One night after we went swimming...the room was freezing..so i stripped everyone naked and we ALL jumped into the bathtub! I know...goofy...but we were all warm! :)Hannah riding the bike at the splash pad! This little thing shot water like a water gun...lots of fun!Paul and this girls! Hanging out on the chairs having a snack! Hannah getting a sun tan in the pool!
