Sorry for being MIA a-gain. I hate leaving this blog hanging for weeks and weeks. But to make up for it I have a bajillion pictures to share with you of our recent vacation in Destin, FL! Can I get a woot woot.

Yep, our first Dunkin family vacation together. Some of my immediate family and extended family met up in Destin to spend our days at the beach, pool, and anywhere else we wanted to go. Ah, the beauty of vacation.

I love being with family (missed having everyone up there) and I finally got to meet this adorable second cousin? of mine. Love this kid, cracks me up how he has the biggest personality contained in that little body of his. So sweet.

Rob and I have done a few beach vacations and so overall if it weren't for family meeting up there, I don't think we would typically make the drive to Destin since we have beaches that are beautiful too but a lot closer. But don't get me wrong, it was beautiful. Definitely a great city to visit with plenty of beaches to walk along.

Clear water, although hard to tell from the above pic since a previous storm had kind of churned up things up. And my favorite part about the water? The fact that you could walk right in without wincing in pain from stepping on shells. There were no shells that I saw...and my feet were A-okay with that.

Here's Finn getting his tootsies wet for the first time on a beach...he wasn't all too thrilled, lol. The water was a lil shocking at first, but perfect once you got used to it.

Shortly after, little man took a nap in our tent...

When he woke, he was pretty happy. Got these sweet shots of him with his daddy. If this kid is in a standing position, he is usually one happy boy.

The red in Finn's hair really comes out in the bright little Weasley. :)

Other days were spent at the pool...whether at our location or at my brother and sister-in-law's place.

And another napping photo...

Now that I think of it, I think this kid took a nap at every location whether pool or beach. Thankful that the change of surroundings didn't mess with him too much.

All of us "kids" even got the chance to go out on a triple date. All the grandparents stayed and watched the kiddos and we went to a great place called The Back Porch. Everyone's food was great, and the view wasn't too bad either.

We all even stacked our phones in solidarity to sit back and enjoy our time. iPhones, represent!

Love this man...I mean, just look at that smolder. :)

Brian working it for the

Love this pic of them...

Love seeing these two and what amazing parents they are with their little one. Still a little crazy to think my cuz is a daddy!

Outside our restaurant was this large adirondack I asked the boys to get on it and take some pics. And honestly there's almost. not. one. clean. picture. Boys. This is the cleanest pic I could find.

Oh, here's a great place for ice cream...Stephanie and Brian approved. :))

Surprisingly along the beach we couldn't find many ice cream shops. I always thought ice cream and the beach went hand in hand.

Oh and Stephanie even made shirts for us all...they all say Fiorisi Beach Bash. Rob threatened to cross off the Fiorisi with a sharpie and write Dunkin over it, lol. He conceded as you can see. You can also see that there is one hungry baby in the picture and I have a towel draped over me instead of a shirt, lol, yeah, long story short, a shirt was missing.

I'll stop being so chatty and just share the rest of the pics.

It was quite a milestone trip for Finn as well. He started sitting up and crawling. We even caught him standing in his port-a-crib. Our strong growing boy.

Oh Destin, you did us well. Loved the time with family and the time away. I owe you some posts surrounding our home. We had a surprise yard makeover while we were away. It felt like we had been HGTVed! Will share soon. :))

Love to you all!
