We've been home for a week now and oh how we miss the snow white beach and turquoise waters of the florida panhandle. We had the best time!! I know I've basically recapped our trip in a previous post, so this one is mainy to share some of my favorite pictures. Thanks for indulging me!:)
Little miss priss was wayyyy too cool to smile for the camera. I mean she was at the beach and there were far more important matters for this 3 year old. Swim, ride waves, build sand castles. Who has time to smile for mom?
This year was the first that I caved and wore a hat. Getting sun on your face takes on a whole new meaning while pregnant! Ever heard of the "pregnancy mask"? I hadn't until I got it! Hormones plus sun are not a good combo. I look like Michael Jackson circa 1988.
Ava loved the pool a tad more than the ocean we think. She wanted to stay in the pool most of the day. I denied her request for obvious reasons, but mostly because the pool was too small and there were too many people in there. Yep. Not a big fan of peepee water. But we still smiled for a cute picture!
I seriously die over this picture!! It's my favorite. Any professional photogs out there want to edit this for me in exchange for some SheShe credit? Email me! For reals! Haha.
I'm so excited Ava got to get her Crab Trap bucket of food. I did the same as a little girl and it was a sweet moment to see this come full circle. I am such a mush about things like this. I had the same thing here I ate 20 years ago on my last visit. Fried shrimp!
A playground on the beach? So cool! I told Aaron I wanted to bag up enough sand to take home with us and put on our neighborhood playground behind our house. The soft white sand in Florida is seriously unreal!
One afternoon before dinner Auntie put this little doo-rag on Ava and we thought she looked so cute. And so big too! Where did my little baby girl go? Gah.
We had fun going to various restaurants each night for dinner. This particular night we went to eat in Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin. Aaron and I planned to eat at Bistro Bijoux for our anniversary but we felt bad leaving Ava and Auntie at home to feast on Totino's pizzas. So, we went to eat at Poppy's instead. It was decent. Not bad, but not our favorite for sure.
We match. Haha! I did not plan that.
My sweet beautiful girl. I just love her deep blue eyes and soft curls!
After dinner and a little fun at Baytowne Wharf we went for a walk on the beach. A teeny tiny walk for this pregnant lady couldn't hang. I also wanted to get a few pics of her in this SheShe Made dress. It is so simple, but believe it or not, it is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE thing that we sell right now. I adore it.
Another day at the beach!
We went to dinner at Seaside on our last night. Hands down our favorite evening! We ate at Bud & Alley's and once again, ate there as a kid many times so it was a stroll down memory lane. The place even smelled the exact same as I remembered. Yes, I recall weird things like that!
I was so excited to get beach pictures of us and as soon as dinner was over a massive storm rolled in. We had to snap pictures super quick and the best one was blurry. Sad face. So here is the next best one we got.
And speaking of sad face, you can't tell in this picture, but we were very sad to be leaving the beautiful beaches of Destin. Waiting for dad to drop off the rental car here.
I cannot WAIT for many more family trips to Destin/Seaside. We plan to drive next year and stay for a week. I am all over the place about taking a baby, so we will see about what happens. Either way, we are definitely going back!
Until next year, Destin! We love you!
