captiva: part one

during the winter, at some point, we get the itch to take a little break from the snow and cold....

we were fortunate enough to find a good deal (a bit sooner than i anticipated going) so we decided to take the chance (and i'm a planner so booking 10 days before going was pretty spontaneous for me!)....

the boys still talk about our past trips.....

to me, these experiences are priceless if they are memories they continue to talk about and relive....

i am thankful and grateful....

we had 4 lovely days in beautiful captiva, florida....

somewhere we have never been...

but will return....

there was a lot of beach and pool time.....

shelling and more beach time....

and sunsets...

amazingly, beautiful sunsets....
