Beach Getaway Aug 07

Growing up, my husband’s family spent nearly every Memorial Day weekend on Anna Maria Island. It’s one of those childhood memories (like traveling in general is for me) that you really want to share with your kids. While this wasn’t DD1’s first trip (that was way back in July ’09 when she was just 6 months old), it was DD2’s and the first time we’d been there in years. While we don’t need an excuse to go to the beach for the weekend, we did use our nephew’s 18th birthday and his entering the Air Force as good reasons to make the trip July 5-8.

The hotel we stay at isn’t particularly special, but it has great air conditioning, sliding glass doors that open from the first floor rooms straight out towards the beach, and a pool. The rooms are clean, altho the furniture and kitchenette could really use an update, and, since we got a 1 bedroom layout this time rather than the traditional studio, the kids were able to nap while we continued the party in the main room.

The big reason I like to return to this hotel (other than it’s familiar, which helps plan for the kids) is the view.

Yep, we need to spend more time there. 😉
