Spring Break!

So I know I uploaded a RIDICULOUS number of pictures, but considering how awful I've been with pictures, this will make up for it :)

The week before Easter, we headed down to Pan*ama City for spring break. On the way, we stopped at Aub*urn, because Mom hadn't seen it yet and I was dying for her to see my future home! :) Anyway, we had SO much fun!! Will met us there for his Easter break and we had the best time. We used Dad's Mar*iott points and stayed at a beautiful resort and had so much fun on the beach, pontoon boat, and even jet skiing one of the days! (just Dad, Will, Grace, and I.) On Saturday, while we were jet skiing, Mom took the little ones on an Easter egg hunt the hotel did and they got to see the bunny! That was good since we had totally forgotten Easter baskets and everything... This was the first beach trip for both Grace and Charlie and they loved it. There is just nothing like a beach trip and we can all agree on that! Dad and I took Grace to play putt putt one of the nights and she was the only one of us to make a hole in 1! It was so fun. So our Easter and spring break were WONDERFUL. The water there was beautiful, clear, and the perfect temperature. Grace and AnnaClaire were body surfing all in the ocean and loved it! They are quite the little fish! We were so glad Will joined as, too, as we hadn't seen him since Christmas! We are all excited because he's coming home for 3 weeks before heading back to TX for his internship.

I'd have to say the best part was jet skiing! We went through the ocean and at one point were surrounded by 20ish dolphins. It was AMAZING. They were swimming all around us and it was so beautiful. There's nothing like watching little ones on the beach either :) We had such a fun and relaxing time and it was so good to be on vacation and spend some time as a family! (Although we missed Drew a lot!)

Hope you're all doing well! I have two more weeks of school, but no more full weeks since I have 3 AP exams. It's all starting to hit me that I'm graduating THIS MONTH and I am not sure how I feel about that... it's definitely a bittersweet time!!

Enjoyed every single picture Emily!

Enjoy every moment of your last days of school.

You are about to close one chapter and begin another.

Make sure your Mom has plenty of Kleenex boxes laying around. I know she is needing them right about now!

Blessings to your family. Leslie

Emily.. What wonderful pictures of you and your family! I've been thinking a lot about all of you lately and finally had some time to sit down and go through a few blogs. I can't believe you are almost done with high school and will be heading to college in the fall. I know your mom will miss you! Please tell her I said hello.
