Rosemary Beach Family Vacation 2014...Days 3-4

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

I'm back today with another installment of our sunny beach days vacation recap...the third and fourth days were perfect for settling into our beach/pool rotation, the girls figuring out it's really OK to sleep when on vacation (although still waking up at 6AM on the dot every morning) and us eating and drinking as much as possible...that's the life, right? 
More cute swimsuits and outfits for the minis, because what they wear is way more important than us these days and tons of time getting some sun for the adults! Jeff took Caroline to the store and bought her a brand new Disney Princess fishing pole so they could go fishing together...it was the sweetest thing, seeing the two of them so excited to go off on their little adventure and of course CC went nuts when they returned telling us all about the two fish she caught. 
Thankful for both wee ones loving wearing hats...made sunscreen application far less painful! 
Calmest I've seen the Gulf in quite awhile
Working on her sand fort i.e. baby jail for little sister
Deep in thought
Getting splashed by the waves
Playing ball on the lawn
Mimi and Little Bit hanging out while the boys cooked
The grill master at work...he is SO good!
Of course what nightly meal is complete without a walk down to the Sugar Shak... Yes, we might have gone there 4 times in 7 nights, but calories don't count on vacation...didn't you know that?
Looks like we are trying to recreate Abbey Road, but no, we're just taking up the entire street
Me and My Love
Back just in time to watch the sunset! 
The best we could do :/
My little family...vacation makes for a happy heart spending days with the ones I love most
The next day we stayed at the pool, hence no pictures from me...fail! It took awhile for Caroline to get warmed up to the idea that she would actually enjoy the pool, but she finally went in with her Puddle Jumper (greatest invention ever!!) and loved every minute of her time spent at the no-sand water hole. That afternoon, we relaxed at the house and Alex and the minis had a Mexican dinner date while Jeff and I had a couple's night together. We stayed local and ate at Edward's, which was amazing! Before we left, I took the girls outside for a little photoshoot so I could attempt to get some good pictures of them together (for once)
My sweet little button...chubby cheeks and lashes for days!
Perfect little football stance
Someone is mighty tickled with herself
Proudly sporting Mimi's bracelet
Timber!! And they all fall down
My cup runneth over...there is nothing better than this
They've had enough...never enough pictures!
I had to share this one. Such a hard life ;)
Marveling at the airplanes!!
