Summer Vacation

Summer has officially come to an end for me. Friday was my first day back at school. The kids don't show up until Wednesday, but I am working every day until then.
I just realized this morning while posting my classroom pictures that I never bothered to blog about my summer vacation that was so full of fun.
It officially started at the lake on Memorial Day. Unfortunately, I didn't really take many pictures except for Craig on the boat and us eating at our favorite restaurant in Sewanee; The Crust.


My next trip that happened to be a few days after our lake trip was to Minnesota. Mom and I headed north to celebrate my cousin Chris' high school graduation. We opted to stay at a hotel really close to the Mall of America and Ikea. No accident, I swear! It was a great trip filled with family, food, and shopping. The best part was that the hotel offered free transportation to and from the mall and Ikea whenever we wanted. Really convenient. Thanks for a great trip, Mom.

The Mall of America! Love this place.

The next part of the story was in Panama City/Destin, FL. This happened to be right after our trip to Minnesota. Craig and I headed to Huntsville to meet my parents to take "the golden egg" south to the beach. It was a great trip that consisted of eating, sunning, and shopping. Our last leg of the trip was in Destin where we stayed at a wonderful condo with beautiful water views.

Overall, I had a wonderful summer. I can't wait until we get to go back to Florida next year.
