Family Trip to Destin

Over spring break we drove {14 hours} to beautiful Destin, Florida. After a long Ohio winter, it was so nice to escape to a place where it was sunny everyday and at least in the 70 degree range. We spend a lot of the time just walking around enjoying the fact that we could and didn't freeze! The girls were both sick the week before the trip and where pretty much back to normal, Shawn and I, however got sick the day we left to drive there. Not great timing for a miserable head cold... but we made the most of our time there any way! I actually lost my voice on the 3rd day, Lillias informed me that the sea witch took it and that I'd get it back in three days {Little Mermaid} So funny! 

The resort was awesome! Down a very short path we walked to the village filled with restaurants, shops and activities. My favorite restaurant was a little brunch place that had the best french toast and yummy CRUNCHY bacon. Lillias loved the candy shop and the carousel. 

We meet Grammy and Papa Cochran as well as Seth, Lisa, Ryan, Ethan and Chloe down there. It was so fun to let the kids play together and see Chloe for only the second time in person since she was born!!

Lillias had a blast in the pool, she would wake up asking to swim. Addy loved to watch, but like her mommy was not such a huge fan of actually getting into the cold water!


  1. That looks soooo nice....I am dying for some warm weather. Wow, 14 hours you guys are troopers, haha! I can't believe how big LIlli is, but I guess Jack is that big, too! :) Hope you guys are doing well, it's so fun to stay in touch. Wish we could get together :( Give us a call if you ever come out to Utah! haha :)
