This spring break, I went to Destin, Florida with my all the women in my family to get some sun and surf on. Except the high was 55 degrees the whole week. And by all of the women in my family, I truly mean all of them. My mom (Kelly), sister (Samantha), grandma (Bonnie) aunt, (Melody) and three-year-old cousin (Maren).
Most of the time, we played charades and watched the entire pilot and first season of the ORIGINAL “Dallas.”
Within our charades game, my grandma knew no pop culture references in any A.D. era, so we played charades: grandma edition in which the clues were The Bible, Charles Stanley, The Old Rugged Cross, I’ll Fly Away, What about Bob, The Jerk, and Babe–yes, the movie with the talking pig. These are the only movies my grandma remembers seeing. That’s not to say we don’t make her watch movies, she just forgets she’s seen them.
The beach was cold most of the time, but fun is basically unlimited when a cooped up toddler is involved. This is a lie.
Below lies a small montage of all the things we did in Florida, shot on my iPhone so please excuse the weird proportions and low-definition. It’s so short because we mostly just laid around and watched Dallas, but these are the highlights.
You don’t want to see the cutting room floor.
