Sanibel Island 4th of July

I love the West Coast of Florida. If you want to go to an incredibly gorgeous and peaceful place and not leave the US, go to the West Coast. Sanibel Island is particularly amazing and a gem of a vacation spot. If you haven't been there and have the choice, GO! My Mom was amazing and got a condo on the island so we could all get together for the 4th of July. Luckily Mike came down from Chicago, Dillon could join us, Sarah and Ryan got work off and Derek and I came for the weekend. It was truly perfect. We relaxed, enjoyed the ocean and beach, fished, etc, etc. I collected some shells for our house, showed Derek what real sand dollars look like and got to be with family. On top of that, we had some awesome fireworks on the island and celebrated the 4th with a bang. I wish every day was a vacation like this. Big thanks to Mom for organizing the trip :) Hope we can do it again soon!

Perfect views


So many shells! It hurt to walk down the beach because there were so many. 

Comet came too and loved hanging out on the beach with us. 

Getting ready for fireworks. Derek can never keep a straight face. 

Happy 4th!

There was a lot of laying around too

I just love him! 

We went fishing and the boys had a great time... but didnt catch anything :(

Sibling love (and Derek's butt)

Leaving the island... so sad for it to be over!
