Guy Harvey Outpost Resort Vacation

Although we live just a few miles from a beautiful beach on the Atlantic Ocean, I grew up going to beaches on the Gulf Coast and to this day, they remain my favorite. The crystal blue calm waters and soft white sand are just so beautiful and relaxing. So when it came to planning our summer vacation this year, we decided to head west to the Gulf Coast.

From the panhandle of Florida all the way down to Marco Island and Naples, there are an endless number of beautiful beaches along the coast. We wanted a destination with a relatively short drive, so we decided on St Pete Beach, near Tampa. When picking a resort, my family really enjoys a “one stop shop” where everything is available onsite or within walking distance. After some research, we decided on Guy Harvey Outpost Resort.

Located directly on the Gulf of Mexico on St Pete Beach, the resort offers tons of amenities, plus access to their “sister resort”, Tradewinds Island Grand,  just a few steps down the beach. Between the two resorts, there are seven swimming pools, over a dozen restaurants, bars and eateries, and countless activities like a touch tank, paddle boats, and pirate shows to keep you and your kids entertained the entire vacation. One of the major attractions at Tradewinds is the 3 story high, 200 foot long High Tide Slide. My girls couldn’t get enough of it! They also had a great time on the inflatable waterpark while my husband and I relaxed in the complimentary beach cabanas and ordered delicious food and tropical drinks right from an app on my phone…Doesn’t get much better than that!

Surrounded my sea grapes and swaying palm trees, the wide, white sand beach is beautiful. The water is clear and calm, perfect for floating the day away or enjoying the water sports the resort has to offer. But when the sun starts to set, that’s when the real show starts! The famous sunsets from St Pete Beach are simply amazing. Just before the sun starts to go down, crowds gather on the beach to enjoy the beautiful view. My girls loved roasting s’mores over the resort’s fire pits as we watched the sun set each night.

Overall, my family and I really enjoyed our time to Guy Harvey Outpost in St Pete Beach and we definitely plan to be back. Between the beautiful beach and the great onsite dining choices and countless activities to keep the whole family entertained, the resort checked all our boxes for a relaxing beach vacation.

Pop Drop Popsicle Holders for Kids!

Introducing a new summer accessory that is simple yet smart! Kate, a mom of 3 young kids has designed a silicone cup to prevent popsicle drips from running down kids’ arms and dripping all over their clothes. I’m so excited to try these as I understand the struggle of kids with Popsicles from first-hand experience!
 
“Having 3 young kids, popsicles are a popular summer treat in our house. When I came across a pinterest trick to slide a cupcake liner on a popsicle stick to catch the drips, I thought it was a great idea! Except, as the popsicle melted away, so did the cupcake liner. When I looked around stores and online for a better device I was surprised to find there weren’t any! Unless I wanted to make my own popsicles (I didn’t) or buy a big, bulky popsicle holder (also didn’t) I was out of luck. That’s when I designed the Pop Drop!”
 
Right now, Pop Drop is collecting funding and pre-orders through their Kickstarter and if they reach their goal, they will be sending us Pop Drops to give away to our readers! So head over to their Kickstarter to pre-order yours, or share their great product on your Facebook page! This is the mom product you never knew you needed—until now!
