Downtown Naples sure is pretty, eh?
We're back from our family vacation to Naples, Florida and boy do I have a ton of photos to share with you! We were in Naples for a week and we split our time between staying at our friends, John & Lindsey's home (home tour coming soon!), and the Naples Grande Beach Resort. It was our first vacation as a family of four so you know I got a ton of pics! John and Lindsey were so gracious in having us stay at their home (which, btw, is gorgeous!) for the first 3 nights of our trip and showing us around their sunny town. Plus, it's not easy corralling four girls under the age of 4, so I just want to give them a huge THANK YOU for being the best friends ever!
The remainder of the trip was spent at the Naples Grande Beach Resort which was recommended to us by John & Lindsey and they did not steer us wrong. It is a beautiful resort and the accommodations, restaurants, and pool area were exactly what we needed to keep our girls happy and ourselves happy. I mean they've got a waterslide at the pool, Cora could not have been more happy about that! We tried taking the girls to the beach since Steve and I love being at the beach, but it turns out that Cora is not a fan. Womp womp. Hopefully, that'll change soon!
Okay, I could go on and on about what we did but seeing as how I've got 30+ photos below, I'm just going to let you scroll and read the captions to get a better feel for our trip. Enjoy!
Getting ready to go on a boat tour of the harbor of Naples. The boat tour included a scavenger hunt for the kids which was so much fun for them!
Family selfie on the boat.
A pink spotted on the tour.
This house though, was epic. Total #housegoals.
Thanks John for this family pic! Cora's hair game here is totally en pointe.
Boat tour done, now off to lunch! But first, group photo!
This place was in Tin City and it was absolutely delicious! The best baked beans I've ever had and the fish tacos were amazing!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!
Just me and my girls.
The Naples Zoo is by far the best zoo I've ever been to. It's perfect for families with little kids since it's not too hilly (DC's zoo is just a tad too hilly and big for us right now).
Love these guys so much.
Heading to the pool with these cutie pies.
Vivi was an absolute water baby this trip. She was loving the pool!
Breakfast at the Naples Grande Beach Resort on our first morning there.
Had the best fish meal I've ever had here. The miso braised sea bass was what dreams are made of.
The sunset at dinner was just stunning. Those rays!
The coolest/cutest rocking chairs, right? Was so tempted to pack one up to take home, hehe.
Can't believe I didn't take more photos of our balcony. Here's a shot of some of the furniture on it. Perfect for watching sunsets and just relaxing.
I was so excited that I could wear this Triangl bikini again since I got it last year and barely got to wear it since I was pregnant.
On my birthday, the hotel sent these to our room. How sweet is that??
Steve surprised me with a massage at the spa for my birthday. What a guy. I think I'll keep him.
How did she get so big??
Lindsey & John had told us about a really cute and yummy donut shop, so you know I had to try it out. Here's my big girl waiting to eat donuts from Peace, Love, and Little Donuts.
Enjoying them poolside. The struggle was real not to eat them before getting back to the hotel.
The food at Barbatella was phenomenal. We didn't get a chance to sit and enjoy our meal leisurely since both girls were getting antsy, but the setting is lovely and the food is delicious.
An outtake from an outfit post coming real soon!
My little dumpling.

Pool day, everyday!
I love how lush and colorful Naples is. Can't wait for the flowers to bloom here in Annapolis.
My babies at the beach.
Can everyday be like that, please?
