Spring Break 2013

March 22, 2013


I’m pretty sure my favorite break of the year is Spring Break. It’s a time when college students all over the country seek sun and sand in the southern states. It comes right in the middle of the semester when we need rest and relaxation the most. This year I had the opportunity to go to Florida again and be with family! My mom was able to join me and we had such a blast driving around Florida! Here is a little photo blog of what all we did! 

My first stop on my journey to Florida was in Greensboro where I picked up my mom who had flown in from Sweden. It was SO great to be able to see her because it doesn't happen much! 

Our first stop was in Jacksonville, Florida where we stayed with my aunt, uncle and little cousins. After the weekend we decided to take a spur of the moment trip to Disney World on Monday because the kids had no school. This is picture is of my cousins and I at the entrance of Disney. 

At Disney we convinced my little 6 year old cousin to go on the scary dinosaur ride (we're so mean!) and afterwards she was not a happy camper, so I let her play around with my phone and she snapped a cute picture of her sad little face! 


My mom and I then went on to Clearwater Beach to get a day out in the sun. Our plan didn't quite turn out as we had wanted it because it was SO windy but we still managed to get a little beach time in! This is the view from our hotel, I could definitely get used to that! 

Our final days were back in Jacksonville where I got one great day by the pool to get my Spring Break tan! I am so thankful for my family and the great week we had together!  I'm realizing more and more how important it is to cherish the time you have together!
