FULL DISCLOSURE: We are home from Florida. Looking at these pictures is already making me sad because it feels like a distant and much missed dream. It is cold here. I have been chilled since we got back.
I am going to continue to update the blog with our vacation pictures anyway. Why? Well, in our family, if we didn't blog it, it didn't happen. Bear with me. Or ignore these.
Sombrero Beach in Marathon is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. It is a great mix of recreation, clear water, white sand and palm trees. Love, love, love.
We spent two great days playing on this beach.
There was a lot less surf than at other beaches, which made it less exciting for the adrenaline junkies among us...but the swimming was less stressful for our lifeguard (that's me).
We dug in the sand and played in the water.
We built castles.
We played games.
These girls were hard core in their beach volleyball lesson from Eric. Aside from a few complaints that bumping a soccer ball hurts. And it does.
Lukey is crying in the picture below here. He also found out about the painful soccer ball.
Everyone made up, though. His sisters pushing him on the swing was all it took for Lukey to forget his pain.
