Amelia Island Staycation

Last Wednesday, we headed up to Amelia Island for a little one night girls vacay at the Ritz Carlton. It's only an hour north so Kelli and Georgia decided to come play for the day and head home later that night. We arrived around noon and headed to the pool to swim. They had a nice little splash park area for the kids and then your normal pool. The weather went from nice to bad pretty quickly so instead of calling it a day, we just headed inside to the indoor pool and continued swimming. It had a glass roof over it so you could see the rain as you swam...probably my favorite part of the hotel! :) The weather cleared up and we went back out to the main pool and to walk on the beach. 

 D & I enjoyed some pina coladas while strolling the beach looking for shells. Why not we were on vacation!

 We headed in around 4 to take showers and get ready for dinner. We headed into the Fernandina Beach area to a restaurant called Sliders grill. The food was phenomenal. Probably the best calamari I have ever tasted and Kelli got a pretzel bun cheeseburger with queso on top that was insane! The best part about the restaurant was the playground for the kids to play on. We sat at our table enjoying drinks after we ate while watching D and Georgia run around on the playground! Genius! There was also a great reggae band playing that Georgia danced to for probably a good 30 minutes. After dinner we headed home to hit the hay.

 If you look closely the bar at swings for seats! Very cool place and did I mention it's on the ocean!
 The next morning, Blakely had a feeding that fell at 6:30 and I figured while I was up I might as well make the most of it so I laid her back down and headed to the beach to do a 7 am sunrise yoga class in the sand. It was a really nice view, but definitely harder to balance in the sand! I was back in the room at 8 and by then both girls were up. We had breakfast then headed to the beach & pool again to play.
We checked out at 1pm and headed home to Jacksonville after a nice little night away! We had a great  time with just the girls. Thanks Pops for our night away!
