Hello from Pensacola Beach, Florida!


Well, after the longest road trip in our history of road trips we finally have arrived to Pensacola Beach. My cousin Christopher is getting married here this weekend and we wouldn't miss it for the world, so here we are traveling 1300 miles, to celebrate the love of Chris and Karen!!!!
I just wanted to share some pics of our Hotel and the view we have is absolutely amazing!!!! We are staying in 3 bedroom condo at The Portofino, we are here with my parents cousins, Aunts, Uncles, and my Nonna.
I love family functions, and thats funny, the older I get the more I appreciate the time I get to spend with my family. So funny how when your a child you don't think about it at all, as a teenager you don't spend any time with family, and as an adult the time spent just goes too fast...

This is my Dad, Nonna, and Uncle Larry on the balcony Blowing in the wind!!! My nonna looks so cute with her hood up, I was cracking up, you should have seen her from the back!!
...Well here is the view rom our huge balcony that we r just loving to hang out on!







The sun is shining beautifully and the air is crisp and cool. We hear its snowing at home, so we are happy to be here on the beach.
This is us after finally getting a full nights sleep ater a 2 day jaunt across the downaward side of the country. We were having a great time in the car, we are soooo scatterbrained its not even funny, we tried playing games like Michelle and Todd do, but it was funny because we just skip around a lot, neither one of us concentrate on anything for a long period of time. Seriously we have Adult A.D.D., I know it!
Anyway we didn't take any pics on the way down, most of our trip was at night, most of our daylight travel was in Virginia and Tennessee and we didn't really see anything picture worthy! Anyway my sound advice to everyone is Please don't drive through Alabama at night!!!! It was the scariest state I have ever driven through!
When we got off the freeway to drive through and cross the Florida state line, all we could smell was smoke and it was like that for a long time, and a freaking Teradactal seriously swooped down out of the smokey sky and flew into our windshield, it was sooooo freaky!!!!
Anyway the deep south was strange and we were happy to cross into Florida and find some familliar things as we have in the hussle and bussle of home, because Georgia and Alabama, are desolate and boring!
I also want to warn Y'all I am coming home with a Southern Accent!!!! LOL!!!!

Wow those pictures are so cool. They look like postcards! I'm glad you're having fun. And I totally feel for you with the long ride. I had to do it twice. But I also felt like I was going along for the ride with you guys b/c I was texting you the whole time! lol It seemed forever until you got there.

I'm cracking up at the bird incident! Driving is soooo not fun... and now you have to come back! I totally believe you about having a southern accent. I was in NC for a week and came back with one. It's super easy to pick up! Hope you're having fun!
