Rosemary Beach Family Vacation 2014...Days 5-7

Friday, June 6, 2014

It's the end of my little show and tell and this makes me miss it all the more...though I can't lie, I am going back on an all girls trip in July and I know I will be good and ready for more time in the Florida sun soon enough!
Mid-week came up on us quickly so we made sure to soak up every bit of gorgeous weather while we could...complete with hoards of SPF sunscreen, especially for the minis!
 Sweet little cutey booty
 Mimi's Mermaid Masterpiece
 Someone woke up from her early morning nap and was totally ready for some beach time
My little swimsuit model...I'm not ready for this baby stage to be over quite yet!!
That afternoon, we headed in to get ready so we could venture to nearby Seaside for dinner at one of our favorites, Great Southern AKA home of the best shrimp and grits! It was a gorgeous night,  and we shopped around some adorable shops, had a few mojitos, and then had gelato with the kids!
 cheesin' for the camera...while sister is mesmerized by other people
 hahaha...sisterly love, right?

Mimi and her little button
Thursday, we stayed at the pool with the girls the majority of the day so Caroline could get in the water to play since she wasn't the biggest fan of the waves from the ocean. It took awhile for her to warm up to getting into the deeper part of the pool (with an adult of course), but once she did we couldn't get our little prune finger toddler out! Then it was off to spend the last hour at the beach...building and splashing in the ocean! 
 Me and my nugget...she just LOVES being in the pool with her mama
jumping into the "wave"
 hanging out under the umbrella with mimi and pap...AKA snack time
flying beach baby!
That night, we met up with Amy Riley, who we had scheduled a family session for some new pictures! Of course, in proper wee one fashion, things might have gone a little south, due to melt downs, face plants in the sand, and not wanting to have their picture taken, but such is life, right? She just sent us a sneak peak and you can see that HERE. The CD is in the mail and headed our way so I cannot wait to see the others!!
Our final day came and went way too fast and we were all sad to say goodbye to another fabulous week away. We spent all day outside, walked to "town" to eat lunch at Cowgirl Kitchen, did a little shopping, and then had the boys cookout that night so we didn't have to get out, but could enjoy our last Florida sunset.
Until next time my favorite place!!! Thanks everyone for tuning in to see our vacation rewind...it's been fun looking back and I am happy to share any details about the house/destination/restaurants/and such if you're interested. Cheers to a happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend.
