My entire family minus a few here and there took a trip to Indian Shores, Florida,ss for spring break. And when I say my entire family, I mean the whole thing… we had between 30 to 40 Hammonds in the same building that week. By the time we left, I was surprised that building was still standing. My parents, my girlfriend, and I left Friday morning after baseball practice and stayed until the following Saturday at midnight. I have always enjoyed staying at the Sand Dollar because we meet new people every year from different states and even different countries. I have met people from pretty much the entire southern half of Canada, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, and tons from Indiana.

Our first day in the Sunshine State consisted of just that. Even though I got hit in the face with a ball five minutes of being on the beach and broke my glasses, we had a great beach day. Sunday we hung out with some of our friends we met about five years ago from Wolcott. We really connected with and enjoy these people from the time we met. The entire family loves just hanging out around the beach being some beach bums. Monday was my Aunt Michelle’s birthday which was celebrated with another beach day. She has to have one of the most enjoyable birthdays each year because instead of just one day she gets an entire week of fun and celebration.

Tuesday was my birthday, and I think it was one of the best so far. Who wouldn’t enjoy a birthday on the beach with their family? Maybe someone who is allergic to sand or something, but that’s not the point here. My amazing girlfriend got me a sweet necklace and some nice cologne as presents. My cousin Abrah and her boyfriend Riley rented paddleboards for a nice birthday present for me and pretty much the whole family. That is one thing I will be sure to do again. We all got a chance to try out the paddleboards and it was a very cool birthday gift to receive. Later that day I picked up Nolan Shafer, Gabe Eurit, and Sam McCoy from John’s Pass because they wanted to enjoy my birthday with me. I got to see some of my favorite people and one of my favorite places.

Wednesday was another hangout day with my family and my awesome girlfriend, Emma, who has been included in pretty much everything I’ve been talking about. She rode to and from Florida with me and my parents, but she stayed next door with her friend which was awesome since I got to see her everyday. On Wednesday and Thursday I went to a pretty cool hangout spot called John’s Pass and rode jet skis. It’s made up of about 20 different little shops and stores selling Florida merchandise and clothes. It also has a few really good restaurants and two jet ski and parasail rental stores. Some of the restaurants are Bubba Gump’s Shrimp Co. and Hooters. Those restaurants are great, but not my favorites. My two favorite restaurants are Dockside Dave’s and JD’s. I’m getting hungry thinking about Dockside Dave’s grouper and JD’s seafood omelet.

Friday was a sad day because we all knew it was coming to an end. My parents and I along with Aunt Michelle, Uncle Steve, and Nate went to Crabby Bill’s and stuffed our bellies full of seafood. I actually ate breakfast and my parents food took a while to come out, so I went ahead and ordered shrimp about an hour later. We all had a great time and got to go back and enjoy the beach one last time. Our trip home seemed a lot longer than the trip there, but it was safe going both ways. There’s nothing better than spending time in the car or on the beach with family.

    Great article Brady! It sounds like you had a fantastic time in Florida! Even though I have never been to the Sunshine State, I have heard a bunch of positive things about it. I’ll have to try the activities you mention once I go there, especially the restaurants. One place I plan to venture to is the Everglades and ride on an airboat.

    Great article Brady! It must be nice traveling with such a big group of family and catching up with old friends. I’m glad you had such a good birthday on the beach and with your friends. I too enjoy having my birthday during spring break. It sounds like your senior spring break went out with a bang!
