Christmas Eve, we took the day off from Disney and went to the beach. We have family that lives nearby Orlando in Clearwater, and we love this particular beach called Honeymoon Island. It's a state park so it's less crowded and very clean. The kids had such a great time...even though it was only ~60 degrees and cloudy :( Molly literally never stopped running.
The seagulls are insane here. They are everywhere and are not afraid of people. And if you have food of any type, you will get ambushed!
It was a welcome change to just let the kids loose and play. At Disney, I was always so paranoid about losing track of someone that we kept everyone very close. I love just letting them go do what they want. And one benefit of the cold weather was that they steered clear of the water, so I didn't have to worry about that either.
After the beach we went to my cousins house for dinner which was really nice. We hadn't seen each other in a long time and it was fun to see everyone's kiddos and how much they've grown.
Next up: Christmas Day...Downtown Disney.
