Hi everyone! I hope 2017 is off to a great start for you; I know it is for me! Today I’m going to be sharing with you photos from my trip to St. Petersburg, Florida. For those of you who are new, I am a cheerleader at Miami University, and our football team went down to Florida to compete in the St. Petersburg Bowl! It was a really close game, and even though we didn’t have the outcome we wanted, we still showed everyone what we’re made of, and that was just as fun.
So we flew down on December 23rd, and we got there pretty late at night. We went grocery shopping and got ourselves settled in. Since it was dark when we arrived, we didn’t get to see our condo’s view until we woke up the next morning. Oh my goodness, it was definitely the best thing to wake up to, like ever. My dad and I sat out on our balcony and drank coffee, and it truly was the best thing I’ve done in a long time.
On Christmas Eve I had practice with my teammates, to make sure we were bowl game ready. But before that, my mom and I took a walk on the beach. I haven’t been to Florida since I was thirteen, so walking on the beach was like heaven.
Christmas Day was filled with events for the bowl game. I don’t have any pictures from that day, since I was running around all day, but even though it was busy, it was still super fun.
The 26th was the day of the bowl game, and it was awesome getting to be back on the field one more time for the season. Football season is by far my favorite! After the game, my family and I went to St. John’s Pass to shop and eat dinner, and get ice cream. If you are ever in the St. Pete area, definitely go here! We ate dinner at a place called The Hut, and I highly recommend it!
We sadly had to leave our condo the next morning at 6AM to catch our flight back home. It was a short trip, but it was just what I and my family needed! I am sad to have missed Christmas with my extended family, but this was for sure the next best thing.
Where is your favorite vacation spot?
