beach day in bermuda!

LOVE TAZA twirl

we have been in bermuda the past few days and can’t get enough of these gorgeous beaches and insane water colors! ever since our trip here last summer, this place climbed the list of our favorite places so quickly and we started talking about our return trip and how much we had to come back the minute we got back last summer! josh kept a look out for good airfare tickets during the year and when he found tickets on sale back in january, we all pretty much started a big count down to june!

i’ll share more photos soon, but went through these from our first beach day here and wanted to share! can you believe the beautiful sky color against that bright clear turquoise water? we have been lucky to have great weather for the most part this trip, since the forecast leading up to it said thunderstorms all day everyday for our entire stay. we had a bunch of rain yesterday, but it sounds like bermuda has been in desperate need of it, so i’m glad they are getting some good water right now.

if you know me in person, i have probably already talked your ear off all year long about how much i love bermuda. we just can’t get enough of this place and since i have a birthday this week and we celebrate 10 years of marriage (WHAT!) next week as well, it was the perfect excuse to make this trip happen for our family! love you forever, bermuda!

eleanor and samson have talked at length about the portugese man o’ war’s since seeing and learning about them last summer. they loved spotting them when they occasionally washed up onto the beach before the lifeguards would come help. it’s a bummer these things can be so dangerous, because they are seriously so gorgeous close up!

for those who have asked on my instagram about my swimsuit, you can find it here. it was a more expensive purchase for me, but i knew it’d be one i’d wear for years to come so for me it was worth the investment. i love the cut and color so so much. my sunglasses are from last year and no longer available, but similar here and here.

poor josh got a bad sunburn the day before our beach day on a boat ride, so he was covering up well on this day. i kept poking fun of him but then came home with the worst sunburn myself on my back! i always forget to lather up on sunscreen in that area and it’s the worst burn i’ve had! we have both been having a good laugh during the day as we try to get comfortable but also are in pain.

we had the best time putting a very small layer of sand on top of samson after digging out a shallow ditch for him to lay in. he was so excited about it and he stayed in it forever because he loved feeling the sun on his face as he chilled there. haha! we brought over some snacks and fed him and he was seriously living the life right there! he got himself out no problem when he was done basking in the sun.

    It looks so beautiful there!! So glad you are enjoying such amazing family time! Looks like you’re all having the best time! Also, never stop leaping into the air like that! You are such an amazing dancer!

  5. Jessie

    You are beautiful! Bermuda looks lovely.

    PS. Burt’s bees after sun lotion is seriously the best after a burn, and you don’t peel nearly as much when you use it!

  6. Dana

    Sometimes I forget you’re such a great dancer until a lovely leaping photo is thrown in with the bunch! haha

    Looks like you’re all having a great time!

    Love it. We were looking at going to Bermuda a month ago. We would have been there the same time.

    Maybe I will have to make the trip as we have never been. It is one of the only save island vacations that doesn’t have Zika, so it is high on my list.

    This looks like such a wonderful trip! That swimsuit looks fabulous on you! You honestly can pull off every fun, vibrant color flawlessly!

    such a wonderful post. love seeing you all so relaxed and happy. it really does look like THE most beautiful vacation spot. how would you feel about doing a post about how you go about booking your trips/vacations? do you use any certain websites/apps to track good prices, do you book package deals, etc. etc. it seems like you guys have your finger on the pulse and i would love a little help on that front! happy early birthday as well!
