#1,743 Friendcation.

For Ben’s birthday, Jim offered us all a weekend in Perdido Key at a condo he was gifted for Christmas last year. He’s running out of time to use it and was super generous to invite our whole bunch. I’ve always had this fantasy of someday being adults taking family vacations together the way my parents and their friends did when we were kids. Those were always the best trips. Anyway, welcome to the Friendcation 2014, complete with candy cigarettes for the road, Cooley’s hamburgers, fall on the beach, and Italian supper:

Unfortunately, the 3rd “queen bed” for me and Ben was a little more firm than we were planning on.

But the good news is, no one is staying at my parents’ condo 5 miles down the beach so we’ll be sleeping here and going back first thing in the morning. Here’s to sunny skies and white thighs tomorrow! I brought the Solarcaine.
