Spring Break Daytona Beach



The weather has been just beautiful lately and I have been wanting to take the girls to the beach for a few weeks now. We decided to be spring breakers and make our way to Daytona Beach for the day, and we had an absolute blast. This was the first beach trip where we actually got to enjoy the beach and not worry about one of them running off too far or eating too much sand! The girls loved playing all day and we had so much fun playing with them. Makenzie loved the water until she landed on her bottom in it and decided she was scared of it from there on out (even though it was nice and warm.) Zoey, my little adventurer, loved all of it except for the sand in her eyes, but nobody likes that! Here are some pictures I captured of our amazing day.



Firsts things firsts, we had to stop for donuts on our way out to Daytona. We got about an hour into our drive before stopping at a random gas station that had the best looking pink donuts and the girls had to have one! I also grabbed an apple fritter for my husband and I, these are my favorite, along with some cold Starbucks drinks, of course. Makenzie was so happy to have this pink donut! Look at that smile!










When we finally made it to the beach the girls could not wait to go play in the water! Zoey likes to just pick up the sand and throw it into the water and they both loved running from the water as it rushed in and out with the waves.






















These are my favorite pictures of the girls together.




Kenzie let me take one picture with her and I am so glad to have this one!








If your hair is full of sand you know you're having a good time!






We brought bubbles for the girls to play with but the wind took them away so fast they hardly noticed them. I did catch this picture with a few bubbles Alex was blowing, and I think it looks pretty cool!

We have our own tent that we brought but when we got there these chairs were in the perfect spot and were open so we decided to just rent them instead. I have to say it was really nice to have the lounge chairs and umbrella for the day. 

We decided to walk up to the Daytona Beach Board Walk to grab a bite to eat for lunch when we got hungry. My favorite place to eat when we are at Daytona Beach is Bubba Gump Shrimp! I love shrimp and look forward to this place whenever we visit. We decided to sit outside since we were covered in sand and the kids enjoyed coloring pages and crayons while we sipped on our adult beverages.
I got the Starboard Sunrise and Alex got a Coronarita. They were both delicious !




I usually get Forrest's Seafood Feast because it's a little bit of everything to enjoy. I did ask for coconut shrimp instead of the normal battered shrimp it came with though. So good!

Zoey and Makenzie shared a grilled cheese sandwich and fries; they were happy girls!



After lunch we went back down to the beach to play and enjoy the rest of our afternoon by the water. We had such a great time that I am already planning when we can go back!
