July 5th - Day 1 - Travel & BBQ

We were up and on the road by about 7:30 this morning.  Lisa got away about the same time, so it turned out we were pretty much traveling together.  So, we met up for lunch at the mall in Valdosta, which allowed the kids some time to get out and play.  That break was more than an hour long, but it was good. 

We arrived in St. Augustine at 4:00, which is check in time.  However, almost everyone was having to wait to get keys until their condos were cleaned.  We ended up having to wait until almost 5:00.  I was a little upset!  We love these condos, but some of their policies are obviously to make money, not to accommodate guests.  We finally got in, though, and got everything unloaded.  I was really glad we had brought food, so we didn't have to spend another two hours doing the shopping!

Once we unloaded things and put away the food, we headed over to the Pacifica pool where Steven and family were doing a bbq for the whole group - about 31 or 32 or us.  It was Allie's birthday, so we also had a celebration for that.  It was a lot of fun having everyone together again.

By the time we finished there, we were tired and headed back to the condo.  The first day is always tiring, with the long travel and unpacking.  Tomorrow the real fun begins!!
