My family grew up visiting St. Simons Island for the past 20 years, so we decided it was time to visit the Gulf coast! Robbie and I searched and searched VRBO around Rosemary beach and found a house close by in Inlet Beach to rent for the week with my family.
We arrived on a Saturday and went to this super cute playground at Alys Beach.
(Everything in Alys Beach is white!)
We had chairs and umbrellas set up every day for us at the beach. Our house was a very close walk to the beach - and no stairs down! That was very nice when pulling all the beach toys!
One morning the girls went shopping and had lunch out at George's at Alys beach.
Gates did NOT like the sand. He spend 99% of his time on the beach in my lap.
He did venture his toes in the sand long enough to snap a few pics…
Hawkins loved flying a kite with Daddy
Here is sweet Gates during dinner at Bud and Alley's in Seaside Beach
Hawkins could have stayed on the beach and in the sand all day long. He just entertained himself and played and played. We were so glad Robbie took the whole week off. My boys got some great quality time with their Daddy.
Robbie took Hawkins out for a quick kayak ride
We got a babysitter one night and had an adult night out.
We went to the Calazo pool in Alys beach and then back to George's for dinner.
All the pictures below were taken by MPhoto during a family photo shoot taken on our last night there. The weather was perfect!
We all loved our trip to the Gulf coast and can't wait to go back soon! This might be an annual Gatewood family trip!
