14 of 52: Clearwater Beach

As a family, we have many favorite places to visit. Some of those places have nothing to do with how spectacular site is, but more to do with the memories we have of our time together at that special spot.
For us, Clearwater, FL is one of those places...although, I do think as a place alone it is pretty great! I can't get enough of the soft, white sand and warm water!
Last month we spent a weekend there - I'm loving that we can get there in about 90 minutes; it sure beats the 4 hour drive to the beach we had while living in Vegas!







Waiting patiently (kind of!) to hit the beach...

Daddy and Sammie

Mommy and Sammie

No waves means less stress for Mom when Kylie is out so far!

In the evenings we'd eat ice cream and get silly in the shops


And that's a perfect weekend for us!!

And when we got home on the last evening, I sent Samantha upstairs to get ready for bed and this is how I found her 20 minutes later...She didn't even make it into her pajamas!

52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. Moms are typically the ones behind the camera, this is OUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family.

So, get yourself in the picture every week for 52 Weeks. Be in a picture with one or more or your children and post your "family photo" on your blog every Thursday - don't forget to list your post on MckLinky on Carin's blog

What great shots!!! I love the gulf side though we don't get over there much.

Thursday is when my girls are going to the park too!! I'm not going though..

It was same price to get a hotel for the night as it would be to buy me a ticket and then have to drive an hour home late a night. So they will be doing the park together :-). I'll let you know what teens to look for. LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. You have a very cute family. It looks like to had a great week and I am jealous, they are calling for snow this weekend in Nebraska which is way too early for me.

Have a great weekend!
