I never wanted summer to end.  We were super active as a family and went on so many adventures.  We spent a lot of time outside and swimming.  Summer seemed effortless and I was really enjoying being outside in the fresh air.

We take a week vacation to go enjoy the beach.  I grew up vacationing in Myrtle Beach and a few years ago I introduced this location to my family.  This year we decided to try a new location.  The entire family voted for Florida.  It was a few hour drive further but promised white sands and emerald green gulf water.  Florida delivered on the promises.  We enjoyed sunsets, sea breezes, local cuisine, private cruise on a pontoon boat.  The white sand was amazing.

A few things we do to organize our family over family vacation:

  • Brainstorm and discuss as a family what we want to see and do
  • Always discuss the day’s schedule over breakfast
  • Remind ourselves this is vacation not a marathon
  • Keep an eye on the weather report (and we did have a couple days of rain)
  • Included meal planning since our goal is to eat healthier (included snacks in the car, breakfast and a couple dinners in so we could enjoy more pool time)
