Although our trip began in Indiana, passing through Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama, attending a wedding in Rosemary Beach; the real vacation began on Sunday when we traveled to Destin, FL. We stayed at the Holiday Inn, Destin on the Beach. This was totally a kid-geared hotel with lots of activities, pools, free ice cream in the afternoons, free movie rentals and a kids club room with lots of games and toys. Even though at times I wished we were at a more luxurious hotel and I was the one being pampered, all the distractions for the kids really made my week much more relaxing. So our first family vacation was a success and we hope to plan one again next spring.
Little tables, chairs, coloring books and crayons sprinkled through out the hotel gave the girls something to do when we needed to kill 20 minutes here and there.The hotel is right on the beach so we headed down there once a day for some sand and sea time.
