Florida weekend with family for Mom & Dad’s 50th Anniversary. So nice to have everybody together in one place and relaxing!
It is definitely a ton of work scheduling multiple flights, multiple rental house, different food tastes, and all of the other logistics necessary to gather five generations of a family together for a weekend. But it was worth every minute spent! The pictures can do the talking.
Day 1: Friday, January 10 2020
The pool was the centerpiece of the weekend, enjoyed by young and old alike.
Somebody’s about to get tossed
Snuck this shot in before Little Brad got camera shy
What’s Your Score?
This is Florida
The reason for the weekend – family time and relaxation!
Enjoy Your Stay

Live Simple. Give Love. Laugh Lots. Be Grateful. Dream Big. Be Happy.
Day 2: Saturday, January 11 2020
SOMEBODY isn’t happy about having a camera around all weekend
I’m not sure what they’re talking about, but they both look very suspicious…
Watching the Table
Don’t play pool with this guy!
Sharing a Laugh
Beck and Gramma share some funny stories
I can’t think of two better people to have on grill duty! If this couple can’t cook, nobody can.
Not sure what it is, but I’m eatin’ it
I am smiling!
It’s hard to tell when Jack’s smiling, even when he’s obviously having fun.
What pool time should look like!
Spot of Sunshine
If Beck had known grandkids were so much fun, she would have had them first!
Shelby and Cait enjoying some downtime
Dad’s favorite time of day – nap time!
Too Many Cooks
Mom and Gramma on kitchen duty
Allie has no faith in Grampz shot
Plenty of time was spent around the pool table in the party house.
Finally a Smile
I finally caught Jack with a smile!
When you’re getting whooped up on, you have to focus!
Mom and Shelby seeing what’s biting
These two must have been sharing stories
The swings down on the dock were a huge hit! Sit and watch the water and just chill the night away.
Cupcake is always better than cake!
Love at First Bite
Jack gets in on the cupcake action
When you have FIVE generations of a family together, you have to take photos!
Dad and Gramma
Dad Gramma Craig
Two Generations and Spouses
Extra photos that Beck took this weekend with her iPhone. Great memories!
Allie waits to be whisked away to warmth.
Earning Their Wings
The kids all get Delta wings on their first flight. Kudos to the First Officer here who is handing them out.
Deer in the Headlights
If you’re visiting Florida, you might as well stay in Florida style.
Where most of the weekend fun happened.
Tim and Connor have some chill time by the pool.
Arts n Crafts
Dayna uses one of her many talents to entertain the kids with arts and crafts.
Looks like Jack will be a painter when he grows up!
Allie enjoys arts and crafts too
Photos that aren’t great quality, but tell more of the story of the weekend.
Sometimes it’s about the experience, not the Instagram-worthiness of the photos!
Mom and Beck working on Friday morning breakfast.
One of the best reasons to rent AirBNBs is to have all the family together in the morning – something you just don’t get with hotels.
Cait and Jack
An amazing brand new hot tub! The old one was having issues and the owner had a brand new one installed Thursday night as I arrived.
Mom giving the kids some pool tactics
Contemplating either life choices, or his next pool shot.
Great-grampa keeping an eye on the pool. Or sleeping. Must be a union job.
It’s For You
I think your broker is calling!
The outdoor couch got a ton of use over the weekend.
Beck and Dayna making burger patties for Friday night dinner.
Beck and Gramma laughing together
It’s not in focus, but we’re not aiming for technical perfection with this one…
I like this photo of Dad – he looks like he just got caught doing something and is trying to play it off
Rest and Relaxation
Craig enjoys a bit of what the weekend was supposed to be!
We brought in some cooks to handle the cooking for Saturday night dinner. They did a great job of getting me a shopping list, doing food prep and cooking, and the food was fantastic!
Great Gramma Time
Gramma taking a break and watching the nonsense happening in the pool
Dayna instructing during craft time
Arts and Crafts
It’s not just pool fun here folks!
Conner enjoys the big round squishy thing
I normally don’t post any photos of me, but Shelby snapped this one of me hard at work getting the bait ready for FISHING TIME!
I had to capture this beehive man bun on a manboy across the canal. He thinks it makes him look like a warrior but he really looks like a soccer mom.
When you know it’s coming but you just can’t move away
I think they’re looking at young hunky movie stars on TMZ.com
I don’t claim that one on the right there
Rachel and Shelby catching up out by the pool
Dad’s request – barbecued chicken, ham, and mashed sweet potatoes.
Everybody together after saying grace
Full of Hot Air
It’s not a birthday, but we made them blow out all the candles anyway
It was nice of people to bring thoughtful cards and gifts, but time is the greatest gift that everyone brought
Of course no family gathering would be complete without some rabbit ears photos
Not my fault
Rachel made me do it! Sometimes you have to have a little goofin’ for the camera
