Family Vacation: Destin, Florida

My favorite vacation growing up was always Destin, Florida! Getting to visit with my own little family now is so special for me! Steven and I spontaneously decided to book/leave for Florida all in a two week time frame. The Florida border opened for Louisiana residents and we couldn’t resist taking one last vacation as a family of three!

Our absolute FAVORITE place to stay in Florida is the Coral Reef Club in Destin. It’s only three stories, which means a limited number of rooms and the beach is never crowded! You literally walk from the patio of your room directly onto sand! At 7 months pregnant I definitely didn’t want a long, exhausting walk, so I was super thankful it’s close and convenient! I included a photo of our condo building so you could see how small and easy it is.

My family ended up coming meet us for the weekend and Emma enjoyed playing with all the aunts + uncles! My little brother is only a year older than Emma…making the two of us 25 years apart! They definitely have a love/hate relationship and the pictures of them playing on the beach are some of my favorites!

A quick beach photoshoot was a necessity of course…even though Emma was NOT a fan! Luckily we were able to get a few sweet pictures of her before the tears started. Beach sessions when the sun goes down at 7 pm are not ideal for exhausted toddlers!

I hope you enjoy this little peak into our vacation. Life is always better at the beach! <3

The whole group! We were so thankful my grandpa was able to make it with us!
7th child + 1st grandchild
So thankful for the few sweet smiles she gave us!
This girl sure does love her daddy.
thankful for the sweet siblings that make life so fun!
Super dad!
The “Back Porch” restaurant in Destin never disappoints with homemade pie!
This is how a toddler ends up at 8 pm after a long beach day. Couldn’t even make it to bed!
Here is the Coral Reef Club in the background! Small, intimate + one row of chairs!
Clint David has a rough life…obviously!
Emma did NOT love the sand. Especially on her face, lol.
Pregnant at the SAME time with my sis. We are excited…even though she’s still in the sick + miserable stage.
This is how Clint David really feels about Emma!! So glad I captured these, lol!!!
Always after daddy.
Wish every day could be a beach day! Anxiously awaiting our next trip! <3
