Our Family Vaca Recap 2018

Earlier in the month we took off to celebrate our 10yr wedding anniversary! We knew all year we would make it a family affair and bring the kiddos because we just aren't ready to leave them for a long period of time.

We decided on Anna Maria Island after hearing how amazing it was from my sister in law and brother in law. After a couple months of worrying about red tide, we decided to go for it and hope for the best.

To our surprise when we arrived, the water (and weather) was perfect! I honestly do not know how we got so lucky since before we left there were still traces and after we left the hurricane brought some nasty weather

We rented a condo right on the beach, we were literally steps away. The best part of anna maria is there are no high rises, most places are not higher than 2 stories which totally keeps the old feel charm in affect. The beaches are gorgeous, white sand and so soft!

The island is small and pretty quiet/quaint with not a ton to do (which we actually loved!) but what there was to do, we did. We painted sand dollars, went fishing, we went to the aquarium a town over, we ate at the best donut place, we ate all the ice cream, and most of the food we ate was amazing!! If we weren't venturing around town, we would be lounging and playing on the beach every day! It was pure perfection!!







 I'm already planning when we can get back here!!


  1. So glad it worked out for you and it looks like a great trip!

  2. I just love Anna Maria Island and how quaint it is! I am so glad you had beautiful weather and we love the MOTE aquarium. Did you do the nature boat cruise from there? That's really fun too for next time!

  3. I'm so happy everything worked out for you! It looks like such a great beach. Sometimes when there's less to do it makes for the best and most relaxing trips. Sierra Beautifully Candid

  4. Looks like a wonderful trip! And I love that the beach town has that small town feel. Those are my favorite!! You got so many great pictures.

  5. That sounds like the perfect trip. And the perfect timing!
