Sad Papaw in DestinBack in March, a tweet by one of Harmon’s granddaughters catapulted him into celebrity status. Nearly 180 thousand people retweeted “Sad Papaw” eating a hamburger while seemingly heartbroken that only one of his six grandkids showed for a dinner.

But it all worked out for Papaw! Allegiant Air and Destin-based ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals have given him a vacation of a lifetime, complete with direct flights on the new Oklahoma City to Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport Route and a 7-bedroom, beachfront home perfect for all three generations traveling together.

Flash forward to the present: Papaw, Mamaw, and 18 grand kids, kids, and their close friends are soaking up the sunshine along Northwest Florida beaches. “We have never had a vacation like this, with this many of our family [members] … this is really special.” said Kenny Harmon.

What’s more, on Monday, June 27th, Chef Christopher Holbrook from Signature Catering 30A joined the family for a burger cook out—serving Papaw’s clan and a few local media representatives his favorite burger recipe; Papaw approved!
