New Smyrna Beach – June 2019 – Day 1

In June we had our annual family beach vacation in New Smyrna Beach. These beach posts are going to be heavy on baby pics. #warning #sorrynotsorry

Our flight down was easy (and not horribly delayed, thankfully). Elena had a bottle and watched Coco (on silent) on the iPad.

We stayed at this really cool B&B in Titusville called Casa Coquina Del Mar. The rooms were all themed and furnished with vintage stuff and we had quite a large suite of rooms. They had a beautiful garden too. It was quite late by the time we got there so we all crashed right away and explored in the morning!

We were only there one night, so we didn’t get to really use the whole kitchen. But it was nice!

This little outfit was a gift from our friend Amber, from Hawaii!

Elena likes horses.

She hugged it.

Then we packed up and headed off to meet some of the family at Dixie Crossroads. The best part for Elena was seeing a lizard.

And the cornballs.

After lunch we drove by Space View Park. Yeesh, they had a lot of hurricane damage to their pier – which was the same one we watched a shuttle launch from a few years ago!

Then we headed to the condo. These sunglasses lasted like 2 minutes.

And then… the ocean!

Elena got to live out her every Moana-inspired dream. She loved it so much, which made my heart happy.

This romper Janine bought her last year is still one of my fav things and it still fits!

Pizza and Greek salads from Manny’s for dinner, and the sun setting:

A bath, and then bedtime!

Also, we unpacked. Thanks to Trashy Diva, we had..matching outfits. I was unreasonably excited about this.

Elena has a way better wardrobe than I do.

Story time!

And that was Day 1
