Our Jax Beach Vacation:

**Warning... Picture overload**

I know I say it often, but I love living so close to home right now! It has truly been a blessing!
We have been going down to Jacksonville to visit as often as we can but we have never treated it as a full on "vacation". It is usually a weekend trip and we stay at my parents. Steven and I discussed it and we decided to really take a "family vacation" this trip. We are so thankful for one of my best friends whose mom has a beach vacation rental just 5 blocks off of the ocean and allowed us to rent the "Little Beach House" for a week! It was truly a home away from home and we loved every minute of it! Thanks again Lori, we love you so much!

We planned our vacation out for last week as it was the week of The Players Championship. TPC is a huge PGA Golf Tournament that is held at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach. Attending TPC has been something I have done for a while since I grew up in Jacksonville and after Steven and I got together it has been something we have been able to enjoy together. Until the past two years when we have lived across the Country and have not been able to attend. So naturally we knew we would want to head down for the week of TPC to not only enjoy the golf, but to enjoy our family, our friends, and the beach. All in all, it seemed perfect, and it really was!

I can honestly say that this was one of the best family vacations we have had! It was truly family time, spent enjoying every moment together, making memories upon memories that will be cherished for eternity! From relaxing and enjoying the beach house, enjoying the actual beach, taking Charli to her very first TPC, to spending time with family and friends!

So without further ado...
