Spring Break Beach Vaca

So I've been busy with other things the past two weeks and haven't posted the photos from our Spring Break vacation at Melbourne Beach, FL. We found the hotel through a recomendation from a friend of mine from church and it was darn near perfect for us. The boys didn't mind sleeping on the pull out sofa at all so Curt and I got a King sized bed with ocean view all to ourselves! Both boys were so well behaved and we all had such a fun time on the beach and in the hotel pool and hot tub. The ocean was still a little too cold to actually swim in, although crazy Curt couldn't help but take one dip, but we didn't feel like we were missing out on it at all since we were so busy enjoying the rest of the activities.

When we left the beach we drove over and spent the day at the Brevard Zoo. This zoo is much bigger and nicer than our local Cen FL zoo and we had a great time there together. The boys each picked out a stuffed giraffe as a souvenir and two weeks later they still both ask to sleep with 'Tip Top' and 'High Top' the giraffes.

All in all I'd say it was a big success as our first family vacation with all four of us and we definitely are planning more at this same hotel in the near future.

Here are some photos for you to enjoy.

"What do you mean the sofa turns into our bed?"

Clark loves the beach!

Here we are relaxing in the room with lunch after a morning on the beach.

Curt buried the boys in the sand much to their delight.

The smiles on our faces say it all! I love the beach almost as much as I love my family!

Ah, the beach .... I would say that it is in your blood! Looks like the boys had a great time, even the surfer dude! Couch turns into a bed: isn't it great that the brothers can sleep together and enjoy it. So this is why you wanted the second child to be a boy!!! Glad you had such a great time and it all worked out.
