Anyway...back to our beach trip...
We had the BEST.time.ever!!!
The weather was PERFECT, the beach was BEAUTIFUL, and our time was MEMORABLE!
This year, not only were we surrounded by MY sweet family, but our dear friends, the Howard's...
our favorite lifeguard friend, Charlotte,
joined us for a week of
FUN in THE SUN too!
That made for a grand total of 27 people in our party.
And yes...it was definitely a PARTY!
Most of our week was spent ON the beach. The kids LOVE swimming in the ocean and playing in the sand with their friends AND cousins.
When we needed a little break from the beach, the pool was the happening place to be.
I'm actually surprised no one sprouted fins and gills while we were away;) I think most of these kids spent more time IN the water than out.
Every year we visit Surfside, we have a few spots that we love to frequent.
This year, we were excited to share some of our favorite beach hang outs with our friends.
Sophia's Ice Cream is a definite family fav!!!
And no trip would be complete without a trip (or two) to the Yum Yum shop as well!
Broadway at the Beach is a must see too.
We didn't do much shopping there, but our crew had a BLAST riding all the new amusement park rides they have there now.
And speaking of "BLAST'...
Our family had so much fun building amazing sand creations,
My family is THE BEST;)
Sweet memories were made and precious moments were enjoyed that will indeed last a life-time!
