A little sneak peek into our wonderful family vacation.
Yesterday was our first full day here at Amelia Island Plantation. We started the day off with a family run to Marche Burette where we got coffee and breakfast. We walked around the little village (super cute), even took a look into their nature center and then made our way back to our villa.
We fought Henry long and hard for an morning nap, but it’s vacation so we gave in. So we ventured down to the pool. Spent a few hours splashing with the little man. Mommy and Daddy even enjoyed a few mimosas pool side. Ahhh! The Hurricane is a daredevil when it comes to the water, maybe he’s taking after his “cousin” Hunter. He dunked himself TWO different times. Scared the daylight out of me. He thought it hysterical and wanted to continue to do it. Boys!
By 12:30pm we made our way back to our place where Henry finally went down for a snooze. Mommy and Daddy enjoyed some cocktails on the porch and I even blogged. After nap time we made our way down to the beach… it was an amazing overcast afternoon… and NOBODY was out. It’s ghost town here right now, since school is back in session.
We walked along the beach and made our way to the pool for a final dip of the day.
Yesterday evening we did the same routine as the night before… bath, book, bottle, bed. Daddy and Mommy got ready and then we packed up the king of the bed and off to dinner we went. He slept in his carseat and we got to enjoy a fabulous meal and cocktails. Y’all this feels way too good. John and I haven’t been on a date (besides Hope’s wedding) since before Henry was born.
This morning we were up by 6:00am (pretty typical with our crazy cat) and we hit the links. We drove shotgun with Daddy and watched him golf.
Now were home… enjoying coffee, Daddy is showering, I’m blogging… Ahh!
I fully understand the need of “family vacation” now. It’s been a wonderful two days, just relaxing, unwinding and spending every waking second with my boys. I’m feeling incredibly blessed and I’m reminded how lucky we are to have such a healthy baby boy.
Love to all!
ps… sorry for rubbing in our vacation shots. I’m clearly on cloud nin.
