A new anniversary tradition!

It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.  ~Rita Rudner

Just a couple of weeks ago, it was our 4th/14th anniversary (4 years ago, we got married on our 10th anniversary)! I can't believe it!

For the second time, Husband and I decided to spend our anniversary on Pensacola Beach, at the luxurious Holiday Inn resort! We can only go for one night, so we try to cram in as much excellent food/drink/beach/pool time as possible!

We arrived and checked in to our hotel, then immediately tossed away our shoes and strolled down the beach to The Dock for a Miami Vice (half pina colada-half strawberry daiquiri)!

After that, it was time to hit the sand!

I'm on a beach!

Beach hooping is hard work!

Husband goes for a swim!
 After all that hard work, we needed some dinner! We headed back down the beach to our favorite casual dining establishment, appropriately named Crabs on the Beach!

After gorging ourselves on grilled seafood, fresh salads, and margaritas, we strolled for a bit to appreciate the skyline.

We can't wait to ride the ferris wheel next year!

There was loads more beach and pool time the next morning!


Nerds on the beach!

Lazy River pool and hot tubs are my favorite!

It was ALMOST a perfect trip...until this happened....

Don't worry! A friendly surfer-dude with a big truck pulled us out!

Well, nothing can ever be absolutely perfect. It was a wonderful way to celebrate all our amazing journeys together. I'm so glad this is our new anniversary tradition!
