Perdido Key, FL --->


After spending 3 days in and out of the car I'm sure the girls figured we were never getting to the beach. When we arrived they couldn't get down to the sand fast enough.

And that is where they spent the next three days building sand castles, digging forts, chasing birds, and enjoying the waves lick their feet and legs.


After all day on the beach in the sun we went exploring around the natural parks in white sand of the dunes.

Roo enjoyed the sand most and would sit for hours sifting it through her fingers. Her olive skin quickly bronzed in the sunshine and she held on tight to fingers as the waves raced up and down the shoreline after her.


Miss Rosie slumbered away with the sounds of the ocean lulling her to sleep. Poor baby endured a tiny sunburn on her face the first day and I felt like a rotten mother for the rest of the trip. She kept on smiling though.


This girl belongs at the beach with her long limbs and bleached hair. She was brave in the waves and turned out to be quite the digger. She also has an eye for finding the most perfect shells.

And then there is my adventurous one. Chasing seagulls, climbing to the top of the lighthouse with her dad, digging digging digging, and finally touching a Portugese Man of War to endure a stinging finger for hours.

Our whole trip we ate good! My secret? An app call iWant. I have been sold on it since my little trip to San Diego a year ago.

As for Easy and I - I'm pretty sure we didn't stop smiling the entire time. It was so magical having no agenda, snuggling our chickies nonstop, and exploring the south together.

If we are still in Arkie next spring you might just find us in the Perdido Key again!

Goodbyes from condo balcony.

so glad you had time to enjoy with your kiddos.
