Y'all I am EXHAUSTED!! This time of year is just as busy as Christmas Time for us!! It seems like the schools throw in every last minute activity in the last 25 days of school!! And Holy Cow...I am feeling it!!
So I am going to share a little bit of our CRAZY week so far!! and spoiler alert....Today and Friday are just MADNESS!! HA
Happy Tuesday Friends! Man it already feels like Thursday to me!! Trying to catch up after being gone for a week is rough, but man oh man the beach was SO worth it!!
So today I am going to share our last 2 days at the beach!!
Some how I forgot to share our sunrise pictures from Monday morning! Ben and I woke up way before the kiddos to enjoy the sunrise and coffee together!
Tuesday we woke up lounged around the condo for a little while before we headed out to the beach and pool!
We wanted to be on the beach before 11:11 because a space ship was launching from Cape Canaveral with over 7,000 pounds of supplies for the International Space Station and we wanted to see if we could see it!!
So in the pictures below see if you can spot the space ship.....
That tiny little white dot was the spaceship and we could also hear it and Cape Canervial was about 45 minutes away from us. It was really cool to see!
After the excitement of the space ship....
they rode their boogie boards FOREVER......
Then we moved onto wine and sandcastles! :)
They wanted to swim in the pool before we went up to get ready for dinner and I made a new friend.....
We had dinner at a place called Norwood's. The food was ok....not great!
But the atomsphere was REALLY cool! It was a treehouse!
After dinner, we fed gators! I apologize now for all the pictures!
They got to hold them....Ian went first!
Meanwhile, Ella was like..NO Thanks!
But she finally held him!
They panned for gold!! They struck it big!! HAHA
We played a round of putt-putt! Ben won. I know SHOCKER! However, I did beat Ian!!
And we ended our night with ICE CREAM!!
Wednesday morning, everyone slept in but me!!
Such a beautiful sunrise!!
Later that morning, we all went to play golf! and I FINALLY got my pictures!
Beach golf courses are so beautiful!!
She found a purple flower!!
After golf, we went shopping at The Salty Dog in Daytona!
Then we headed back to the condo to regroup!
While these 2 goofed around.....
We went to dinner at a place called The Garlic!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this restaurant. It was AMAZING!! It was so GOOD! If you ever go to New Smyrna Beach, you have to eat there. You will NOT be disappointed! I had Surf and Turf and Ben got the chicken parmesan.
Oh My Glitter
And I got a chicken pitcher of wine!! HA
After dinner (for our final night) we walked on the beach to watch the sunset!
She said...Peace out Beach :(
Walking back up to our condo....
We saw this guy!
We used the flashlight on our phones! HA
I remember going out with real flash lights and sand buckets! My how times have changed!!
We were sad for our vacation to be over but thankful for the memories we made! Plus sleeping in our own beds was a huge plus!!
So here is the final update of our Spring Break Bucket List....
Over all, I would say we did pretty good!!
We are headed back to a different beach at the end of May so maybe we can knock off a few more from our list!!
