#TBT — Destin, Florida, 1995

In the summer of 1995, Julie and I took Taylor (then five) and Riley (then two) to a beach in Destin, Florida for vacation.

We (I) chose the particular vacation property because one of its attractions was grass tennis courts.  If I remember correctly, I found an opponent to play with one afternoon, was less than impressed with my own level of play, and spent the rest of the week at the beach and pool.

(Little did I know that 22+ years later that same Destin area would be home to Methodist Mega Campus Celebrity Pastor Rurel Ausley of Crosspoint Church in Niceville, FL!)

Nevertheless, this shot of our kids on the balcony has always been one of my favorites.
