This year was our first official "Fall Break"! Even though our work schedules are flexible now that Superman and I both work from home, we wanted to plan our last vacation of the year around Kasen's Fall Break. Thankfully our school district is a week later than most everyone else so the crowds and traffic weren't bad at all!! We drove down to a resort near Panama City Beach and stayed right on the beach.

I’d like to think I’m not a picky vacationer, just give me a semi-private beach and some tanning lotion, I’m all set. But then again, I'm spoiled by Florida's sugar sand and crys
Have you ever gone on vacation and then come back completely exhausted? Like you need a vacation from the vacation?! :-/ Well, I try to avoid that happening!! So when Superman wanted the whole family to vacation together and visit 3 countries I started to worry that we wouldn't actually be able to relax. He researched all the different ships (since the one he and I had gone on before was pretty small) and decided on the Royal Caribbean, Allure of the Seas. It's their second l
