On our last big day out we planned to go to the #1 beach in America, Siesta Key Beach. It’s our #1 also with sand the consistency of powdered sugar. We planned to eat out all day so we started with Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. I had to grab a picture of the sign because […]
On Thursday we strategized to go to the beach later in the day. We wanted to kids to rest a bit in the morning after just going to a beach the day before. We also wanted less sunburn and less traffic. Our final goal was to watch the sunset on the beach. I started off […]
