Pointe West

We booked a last minute trip to Pointe West for our last five days of Spring Break. We were all really surprised how nice it was. We were excited to find a place within driving distance that was so relaxing and nice. Two pools, a lazy river, three salt water stocked fishing ponds, work out room, game room, two restaurants, crafts for the kids every day, smores and root beer floats at night, and golf cart & kayak rentals. The beach wasn't all that fabulous, but we didn't care. It was just nice to sit in the pool and view the bay or ocean. And sip a few pina coladas while doing so. :) And the weather couldn't have been more perfect!! The kids had a blast and we will most definitely be going back!

The kids all shared a queen bed...it actually worked out!!
We rented the golf cart for the week and drove it everywhere.

Lots of Fishing...

Quick picture after eating lunch outside.

Pictures on our balcony..

They Loved the Lazy River.

Gavin and I caught HUGE crabs.

We drove by the old beach house I had as a kid growing up. It is still standing.

Ellie and her first fish.

More fishing...we pretty much fished every day. The kids loved it.

The highlight of Gavin's trip- a 25'' red fish that he caught ALL ON HIS OWN. He was so proud!

We left the resort one time to eat at Marios and then hit up the Candy Factory on the strand. My parents always took me to both of these places when I was little. The kids loved them too- especially the Candy Factory!

Sad to say goodbye to such a great trip.

Fun! We are actually renting a place there for a week this summer. We drove to see the house a couple of months ago and to look around the club. It got us (and the kids) really excited. Glad y'all had a great time! :)

What a great Spring Break! We stayed there a couple of years ago and it is a nice place. My boys loved seeing the pictures of your kids fishing (they LOVE to fish). :)

Looks like such a fun time! I can't believe the size of G's fish! I haven't ever caught a fish that big! So happy you all could get away and enjoy life together!

That looks so fun! I want to do something like that this summer. Our family beach house is in the gulf somewhere after Ike, so we've missed going! Great pics!
