We left Knoxville at 3am Saturday morning, so that the kids would sleep most of the way to Florida and we would be resting on the beach around noon. Thankfully, Friday night into Saturday morning was the first night that Lydia's temperature was normal. She was still a little extra fussy once she woke up, but we managed alright. Technically, our first day at the beach was Saturday. After driving through the early morning and arriving at noon, we were tired and hungry. Our rooms wouldn't be ready until 4, so we found lunch and then the beach and eventually found our rooms and a nearby pizza place.
Sunday, PJ, Lydia and I checked out a local craft fair in a nearby town. It was a nice break from the sun and a really neat area to explore.
