It's Always Sunny in

 Philadelphia wait.... make that Florida!

After a crazy, long traffic-filled first leg to Uncle Brian's, and a crazy, shortest-ever 2nd leg we are in Florida!

This was an awesome sight come late Friday when we rolled into Easley, SC.  Brian has remodeled much of my mom's house using his own sweat and oodles of friend labor.  I especially like that he took out the wall separating the kitchen from the living room, where she used to teach piano.  It doesn't look like the same space, and while it remains hard not see her in every room, I'm glad that he is making the house his own.

So Where are we?  Bill's aunt Mary and uncle Don's home outside Destin, Florida.  They actually live on one of the beaches off of 30-A where you will find Seaside, Watercolor, and Rosemary Beaches.  We are within a 20 minute drive to civilization in Destin.

Who else is here?  Bill's mom Pam, his brother Jamie and fiance Kate. Later today Bill's other uncle, RG and his wife Lynn to grill out tonight.  This year their adult children and families are not driving down from Atlanta due to the start of school.

What are we doing?  Being lazy, reading books, riding scooters, playing on the nearby playground with a super-cool giant hill to roll from top to bottom, seeing the new kid's movie Turbo, one day heading to a water park, trips to the beach, and lots and lots of this

And some of this

And most definitely this

Back next week with tales of lazy relaxation as we wrap up the final weeks of summer vacation.

Love that Brian has kept your Mom's house and remodeled it. My cousin bought my Grandma's house that my Dad and well all the kids were raised in... my Grandma lived a little past 100 and she was in that house a LONG time, love that it has stayed in the family.
