Vacation in Bradenton, Florida

My kids were on winter break this past week so we took a quick trip to Bradenton, Florida to visit my parents. Within 10 minutes of getting there the kids started asking to go to the beach. Even though it wasn't super warm out and kind of windy, we headed out.
The next day it looked like this:

Needless to say not the best beach weather but they still got in the water. Well at least for a minute. Check out their faces:

The next day we headed to St. Armands Circle in Sarasota for lunch. The water was so beautiful along the way we had to make a pit stop to take some pictures.

On our way back to the car Devon pointed out something she found funny. Actually, it was the vacation theme. Sadly the theme was butt cracks. Yes, my family loves to gross me out by pointing out people sitting down or bending over that are exposing their ugly butt crack.  Isn't that nice?  This started when we were driving over the bridge into Bradenton and my lovely husband goes "Look at that!" I turn to see a guy who was shall we say was slightly over weight that was fishing and had a fully exposing back side.  Damn my eyes!  Funny I should find this sign at the beach:

Didn't realize Delaney was bending over in the background until now. The theme continues. This is what Devon found funny at St. Armands:

Look at a closeup of the little statue:

Hmmmm. Not sure what to say about this. Anyway, we made one last trip to the beach. It was sunny and beautiful.

Ahhhh. I miss you beach.  Back to reality.  Glad spring break is only a 32 days away!
