I planned on posting this sooner, but I got so sidetracked with my weekend! In case you missed the First Part of our vacation, check it out.
The second part of our vacation was just as great as the first part. We spent more time by the pool, which meant more running around and chasing Ava. She enjoyed looking at the birds & ducks in the pond behind the condo.
So basically she didn’t sit still for more then 5 minutes.
She has actually been able to make some really good “quack-quack” duck noises on her own. I’m pretty sure ducks are currently her favorite animal besides dogs.
We had a couple nice meals outside at restaurants where we sat overlooking the beach.
There’s something so enjoyable about sitting outside at a restaurant.
And of course having a cocktail on the beach. I ordered a Mojito without added sugar!
I’m not gonna lie, eating out with Ava isn’t easy but she was such a trooper and impressed me with her great behavior at the table. I think we also timed everything perfectly and avoided times where she would have probably through a tantrum or have been fussy!
I wish we could’ve stayed in Florida longer!
One of my friends watched Cooper for us while we were away and we received tons of awesome pictures of Cooper having fun playing with his girlfriend Barley. I’m pretty sure he had a fun vacation too!
This is a picture of Marc and his family outside Sandbar Restaurant on Anna Maria Island which is only about 10 minutes from the Condo. While we waited for our table Ava playing with her cousin Natalie in the sand. This is probably the whitest softest sand ever and I wish I could have brought some back with me!
When Ava wore this hat, my heart almost melted.
I know she’s my daughter but the hat was just too cute on her!
If I could pick a second home away from home it would be Florida. I love the beach, and I love that it’s a hop skip and a jump away from Connecticut.
This vacation was the break I needed from work & life, and I honestly felt rejuvenated once I got back!
Whats your favorite thing to do on vacation?
Are you a beach or pool person?
