A Beach Weekend

It started with a little toast
To half number 40 on the coast
Off to Boondocks later to eat
Out by the bay, it was a treat

Back in town at the piano bar
They’d duel with money put into their jar
A stop at Tootsie’s that’s what we need
To hear country music then we can leave

Bright and early we walked for donuts
Up to Thomas’s world famous seaside hut
We went to Destin for the race expo
And lunched at AJ's watching boats come and go

Back at the house the guys took a nap
But HoHo & Tricia did nothing but yap
Shades for dinner just down the way
The sunset was beautiful and in it we played

A Zombie experience later we found
Then on to Putt-Putt for a competitive round
Let’s call it a night the runners said
There’s a race in the morning and we need a bed

In the early morning dark back to Destin we went
Parking, porta-potties and off we were sent
It's beautiful!  But the wind -- what will we do?
Just keep pushing forward, take an extra GU

We conquered, we beat that finish line clock
We nibbled, we drank, we walked on the docks
The biggest medal ever, we had to take pics
Let's stop at Starbucks, Auntie Anne’s for kicks

After showers we rested, but could not sit still
Hey, let's chill on the deck of Margaritaville
So long Sippis!  Safe travels to you
Next time please stay an extra day or two


  1. Beautiful!! What a great way to spend a weekend :) Ya'll are too cute!

    1. We can muster up some silly! So many pictures to choose from. The sunsets were stunning on this trip! After they left, my hubs and I found a restaurant with outside tables that glide. How cool is that! Got to go back.

  2. I think you missed your calling as a poet. :)

    1. Gah! It's just easier to write in juvenile rhymes. I think it has something to do with a song playing in my head AT ALL TIMES.

  3. Awesome! Looks like a great weekend with so much fun!

  4. I LOVED THIS POST! You are so creative Holly!

    1. I'm just playing with childish rhymes. You are too sweet!

  5. I freaking love this!! OMG it is great and no I don't think you forgot anything!!! Such a fun weekend! Sure you don't want to come do it again in Nashville??? Twist, twist!! :)

    1. It's so tempting to come to Nashville. I know we'd have a pile of fun.

  6. Love that you two can get together for races! Looks like so much fun!

    1. We had fun. We were so busy we almost forgot we had a race.
