This past weekend, we headed to Destin, Florida to meet up with Andrew’s family for a Mother’s Day weekend getaway! Andrew’s Mom (Nanny), rented a condo right on the beach for us to stay and the weather could not have been more perfect! The temperatures stuck around the high 70’s/low 80’s and my allergies finally got a couple days of rest.
We got to see Drew’s Grandmother (Nana), sister Laura, and our brother-in-law JC and nephew Alec!
The first day we were there, we got in some beach time. Ellen LOVED the beach! Got to stick her little toes in the sand and see the ocean for the first time. We also got our eat on at a fun seafood restaurant right on the beach, The Back Porch…..a Destin favorite!
The second day was a little warmer, but that didn’t stop us! We popped up the tent and spent a good portion of the day soaking up the sun and taking a dip in the Gulf. Ellen was such a trooper and even took a good 2 hour afternoon nap right on the beach!
For dinner that night, we headed to Margaritaville at Harborwalk Village, a fun little “downtown” area, full of shopping and fun places to eat right on the water.
And of course, Ellen got a little selfie happy at dinner.
