Destin Florida!

On Wednesday morning we left for Destin. We left at 4am and got to Destin around 9pm Wednesday night. It was a very long drive but my brother and I got Itouches for Christmas so that kept us happy.

My grandpa and aunt got here on Thursday morning around 4. My grandma was supposed to leave OKC at 8 on Thursday morning. Well the huge snow storm (apparently really huge storm) moved in and she was on 1 of the 3 planes to go out before the airport closed. She got here last night and now everyone is here! God was watching over us. It is GORGEOUS here. Our house is amazing and the view is even better.

The 1st floor is the house entrance. It has a small dining room, wet bar, living room, bedroom, and bath. It has a balcony overlooking the ocean. Every floor has a wall of windows to the ocean and balcony.

The private staircase down to the beach is off of the 1st floor balcony.

The 2nd and main floor has the kitchen, main living and dining room, half bath, bedroom with 4 bunks with private balcony, and bathroom, and laundry room. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are all along the wall of windows and balcony.

The 3rd floor has the master room (its a huge room) with a bathroom, 2 bedrooms with a balcony to the front of the house, and 2 bathrooms.

That's 5 bedrooms and 5 and a half bathrooms. It can fit like 20 people but we only have seven! It's so great!!

Since our house is 3 floors there is an elevator in it. I don't like elevators so I didn't go in the one here because it says "don't ride when home alone. Cell phones don't work in here". I'm not even kidding. Well I got the courage to go ride in it and my dad LOCKED ME IN IT. He pushed on the door from the outside so I couldn't get out...I FREAKED out. Almost cried. Lets just say that I don't ride the elevator very much. Also, there is a ghost living in the elevator. It just randomly goes from one floor to another and it's really loud. It's a great house though!!

Last night there was a huge storm here. More like a hurricane. There was a TORNADO warning on the BEACH. What did we do? We stayed on the 2nd floor and kept playing a card game. We also watched the huge waves! We're such rebels.

This morning (Christmas morning) we all had one present to open (since we had Christmas last week) and then we had a wonderful breakfast.

Now for the pictures! I will have to split this up into several posts.

the skies proclaim the work of his hands." Psalm 19:1


  1. Your pictures are beautiful! I love Destin too. I cry for it everyday:(

  2. I am so jealous!!! I'm glad your grandmother made it. I barely made it out of town on time. Have a great time!
