Coming out of unpacking hiding for a bit to share with you all the weekend adventure our family took to Seaside, FL. Our little ones had never seen the ocean despite being the water babies that they are! We gave Gabriel the choice of a beach day with the family or a birthday party with friends, and we were all secretly hoping he would choose this. If you remember, Gabe and I first made a visit to Rosemary Beach for an anniversary trip and fell in love with this bubble of a town on the pan handle of Florida. We were dreaming of taking our kids there ever since. We had to pry them away from the sandy scenery, and Gabriel claimed “it was the best day he ever had.” It made the long drive, potty accidents, and toddler meltdowns all worth it;)
Can’t wait to get back to this place. We highly recommend it for young families. We rented bikes for 24 hrs. and rode them up and down 30A visiting Charlie’s Donut Shop, the water fountains, ice cream, beach, pools, etc. We booked a really affordable spot in the villages of Ft. Walton which is conveniently located between Alys and Rosemary (my two favorite spots!)
I’ve realized creating experiences for your family doesn’t have to be pricey but may require a good deal patience and flexibility to walk away with fists full of memories like these:) I’m always happy we went for it in the end to see the world through the eyes of my children, because they are so full of life and hope when the rest of the world seems grim.
Hope you all have a sun filled weekend!
