Monday morning came fast as the boys headed up before the sun to hit their fishing charter and set sail on the open seas… have I mentioned how many times Jeff begs me to go with him?? Thank gosh Christian and Nick have their sea legs, whereas this lady sure does not!
That morning, us ladies headed to the beach for a bit to catch some rays, take a few walks along the shore, and dig for sandy treasure AKA seashells! The boys came back right after lunchtime with all their fresh catch, including grouper and snapper and got to work, preparing for a dinner of fish galore while us gals lounged by the pool sipping on fruity cocktails!
little bit going to town and building away
that face says it all… not a fan of mommy’s endless picture taking
Late afternoon rolled around and we got ready for our family photo session with Amy Riley
. We were lucky in that it was clear skies, mild temps, and happy babies [for the most part!]… a few sneak peaks have been sent and I cannot wait to share all of them soon!
That night, the kids headed to bed and we relaxed with a late night adult dinner outside on the porch… sure, our evenings at the beach sure have changed, but we don’t mind one bit!
colorful accessories for our photos
Tuesday morning rolled around and it was a bit cloudy, so we decided to rest from the beach and pool and do a little shopping around Rosemary! The girls and I hit up local shopping favs Fitz and Emme, Ophelia Swimwear, Gigi’s Fab Kids, and Shop LMN before heading to La Cocina to meet the boys for lunch!
love my little brooks-a-roni!
afternoon cam jam session on the lawn… P.S. that is HARD and not my best sport
That night, we got ready and we all headed to The Red Bar
for dinner… AKA the perfect place for family dining, as it’s loud with music, fun atmosphere, and my favorite 5 dishes! We were lucky to meet Clarice the Macaw while we waited for our table and the girls were in heaven. After dinner, we all walked to the beach to take some group pics before heading to our absolute favorite, Sugar Shak
, for an ice cream treat!
