It's That Time Again

Yes, ladies and germs, it's time once again for the
17th Annual 12 People In A Two Bedroom Condo At The Beach For A Week Family Should Be Close But Not This Close Vacation.

We will once again spend a week hanging at the pool and beach, shopping, playing in the game room, and just generally bumming around. A visit to the Naval Air Museum is included, and this year the kids want to see the Gulf Coast Zoo as well.

Yes, as close quartered as we get. the week is worth it. That's why we go back each year.
