2013 Beachfest

Well, we survived beachfest {aka family vacation} in Cocoa Beach, FL. We jammed in so much in just 3 short days that I feel like I need a vacation from vacation! Whew!

As soon as I got home, mom and I ran to the store and bought all of the important food items for the trip. You know, like tequila and cookie cake.

Then we rewarded ourselves with mani/pedis.

First vacation meal? A Mexican feast, followed by a food coma.

 The next morning we woke up, had coffee and everyone piled in the car for Cocoa Beach.

 Our first stop in Cocoa Beach was Grandpa’s favorite place – Grills Seafood Deck & Tiki Bar. No joke, we ate {and drank} here each day while on vacation, some days we even came twice. Grandpa refuses to go anywhere else. Plus he is a celebrity here – all the waitresses love him and expect him at the same time each day. They even have his order memorized – Fish Tacos with a Whiskey & Diet Coke. Famous.

 We also rented Scoot Coups which was hilarious, dangerous and super fun all at the same time.




We had perfect beach weather all weekend. We were so lucky!
