New Smyrna Beach

After a LOOOONG night on the open road we finally made it to our destination around 9:30 Saturday morning. We were greeted by Papa, Gigi, and a hot pot of coffee... hallelujah!

We hung around the house and checked out papa and gigis new place, us girls went to the pool, and after daddy woke up we headed to the beach. :)

Gigi had already been here for a week but it was her first time seeing to the beach too!

Charlotte LOVED it!

Looking for shells.

We loved being able to find shells on the beach. 
That night we had dinner and went to Publix to pick up a few things. We crashed after we got settled in for the night.

Sunday we got up and headed to the beach, Charlotte loved it! After a few hours some rain clouds moved in and we headed out just in time for the storm. After driving through the historic district we went home to rest and clean up. Later that evening we ate at Dolphin View Grill, saw a dolphin, then rented a movie to watch back at the house.

Monday we went out for breakfast at a local favorite then did some shopping on Flagler street. That afternoon we went to the pool and then grilled out for dinner. :) 

Beautiful sunset!
Late night fishing with the guys!

Tuesday after breakfast we headed to the beach for a fun day playing in the waves!   


That evening we went to eat at The Garlic... such a cool place, then did our family pics!

Wednesday we took Kyle to the airport and then visited IKEA... fun day! Thursday Papa left so it was just us girls. We had a relaxing day at the pool and late that afternoon we drove around looking for antique shops. Friday we went to the Flea Market after breakfast then went shopping at Marshals/Homegoods and Kirklands... we had a very successful day! It was fun coming home to help decorate with all the fun things we found!

Saturday we visited the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse... it was a HOT day but we had fun!

Beautiful! When we go back I would like to climb the many stairs to see out the top!
Loved seeing what household items they used... many of these things I have in my house. I love decorating with vintage items I find. 

After driving back we were in need of a good burger...

We ended the day with a stroll on the beach to look for shells one last time.

We had a blast exploring a new city... looking forward to going back!
