BIKINI: OYE // COVERUP: Clover Canyon // SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker // David – TANK TOP: ASOS // SWIMSUIT: ASOS // SUNGLASSES: Ray Ban

Since my sisters were with us we got to escape to the beach kidless while both babies napped! We played a game of Scrabble (obviously we didn’t take it seriously), drank pina coladas, and walked up and down the beach. Normally I only wear bikinis when I am pregnant – just because I think one pieces look better on me but this bikini is super flattering! The high strap on the side makes your legs seem longer and it covers up all the right spots 😉

Before we left I mentioned I had a fun idea I wanted to try – well it didn’t work and hopefully next trip it will but we did still film a little video! I am so glad we have been doing more filming on vacations because I love going back and watching videos, especially with the kids. We were saying how fun it would have been to watch videos like this or vlogs of our parents with us as kids. All the videos my parents have are them behind the camera and I can hear their voice but cant see them so I think it would be so cool to see video of the whole family back in the day and hear them speaking. Hopefully our kids think its cool one day and not totally embarrassing – definitely could go either way haha. Watch the video above or click HERE!

  1. My Hubs and I are looking into going to Cancun! Any Hotel and things we should check out, best month to go when we travel there? looove your red bikini!

  2. Your children seem so easy going. Any tips for traveling with little ones as far as schedules and breastfeeding goes? We are going to be traveling with our little guy frequently while still breastfeeding. Wondering how yours are so well adjusted.

      1. You are amazing! Thank you 🙂

        And by the way: Atticus is exactly where he needs to be. He is just perfect. People are just disgusting.

        Xoxo

  3. hey Amber I spend almost everyday relaxing and watching your vids. however, I would like to know the name of the song in this video… its by far my favorite!

  4. Hey Amber! Always love sitting down and reading your posts and watching your videos! Your children are adorable and how you managed to get your body looking that good after 2 kids amazes me!

  5. Amber! What a cutie post! I am big fan of you and your family. I wish i could see you. xoxo

  6. Gorgeous family! I love your vlogs… do you use a go pro to film them?

    1. Thanks so much!! And yes! Our GoPro and our canon 5d mark iii 🙂

  7. Beautiful video! I look forward to every new photo, blog post or video! SUch an inspiration! (Made one of my kids => youtu.be/B8v2yd8eYjI )

  8. Hey Amber, super cute video! Do you shoot your videos on your iphones or something fancier? Would love to know. Thanks!

    -Taylor

    1. Thanks so much Taylor!! And we shoot our videos using our canon 5d mark iii and our GoPro too 🙂 I hope that helps!!

  9. I LOVE the red suit! How would you describe the support in the top? That’s my biggest issue now postpartum is finding suits that will support the girls haha

    1. Thank you so much!! And it is actually pretty supportive but I don’t think it would work as well with someone with really large boobs just because of the design but maybe it could?! But the top will definitely keep them up 😉

  10. Your little family is precious and so much fun! ???? What is the name of this song?!

  11. Can you PLEASE share what camera you use for taking pictures of your children and family for Instagram? Your pictures are great and I’m needing to get a new camera! Thank you!

  12. hi amber! I would love to know what kind of video software you use to make your videos. I would love to start making some vids of me and my growing family and yours are beautiful, and I love the song you chose for this one too!! Thanks!!

  13. I can’t believe you had a baby like MONTHS ago! You look stunning! I’m so impressed. I know you’ve been working hard. It has paid off!

  14. Would you be willing to share or make a tutorial on how to make a video like your showing. They look fantastic! I love to make one. Love to know what your using to record it, edit it etc. Thanks for considering! Looks like several of your readers would love this!

    1. That is a great idea for a tutorial, thanks so much for the suggestion!! I appreciate that 🙂

  15. Amber! Great post and lovely video, Atticus is so fun to watch, he do tons of faces and is very funny!! I was wondering if you can share, if you remember, the name of the nail polish you are wearing… I assume they are gel.. Thanks!!! 🙂 🙂

    You are all an inspiration to “be young,” and doing it well. E

  17. Omg you look so adorable is these pictures! Now I want to travel so bad ????. Love you Amber and your family of course ♡

  18. I agree about having videos of parents and even grandparents back in the day. Would’ve been fun to see.

    1. Totally!! I can’t wait to look back on these later on down the road 🙂

  19. Love your blog!! So much fun. Btw, I would love to see you guys go glamping (glamour camping). I live in LA and I found this company called Shelter Co out of the Bay Area which will set up glamping for you anywhere in the state. I haven’t had the chance to try them yet but would love if you guys could test run it for me. Could be a good summer trip when it’s warmer. And I swear I don’t work for them… I am just interested. Lv, Ellary

  21. Hello! I love all your hair tutorials and vaca videos! Have you done a NYC post ? My husband and I are hoping to make a quick trip in the middle of March, it’ll be my first time 🙂 I was hoping you could share your favorite places to eat and experience. We like the arts, are really active, and love all kinds of food. Thanks a ton!
    XO

    1. Thanks so much Hailey!! I love hearing that 🙂 And no, I haven’t! I definitely need to.. Thanks for the idea!! And have a great trip!!! xoxo
      Some of my favorite food places are: Joe’s Pizza, Sarabeth’s Jacob’s Pickles and Norma’s 🙂

    1. Thank you so much!! So glad you liked it 🙂 And I know it can be hard but just take a little at a time and you can come compile it together. It’s so fun to go back and watch!

  22. Awwww that video brought a big ray of sunshine to my day!!!! ???? How absolutely beautiful! You precious little ones are so lucky to have such precious memories!!!! You look absolutely fabulous!!! I want to see you on the cover of a magazine!!! That red swim suit!!! Stunning!!!!!! David looks amazing as well!!! ????all of your looks!!! P.S. what beautiful children!!!! OMG!!! ????

  23. I am curious to how you organize all your pictures. From all that must not go up, and ones after they are edited…etc. I know that is always a struggle for me. Also do you use an external hard drive or a cloud online of some sort?

    1. Great question!! We use an external hard drive 🙂 It’s the easiest for us.

    1. Oh my goodness stop it!! How are you so sweet?! 🙂 Thanks for following along!! xo

  24. That video had me smiling for hours!! What a great way to document precious memories. Thanks for sharing glimpses of your lives with us!! And ps, you look absolutely fabulous in that red two piece!! xoxo

  25. What camera do you use for making your blogs/vlogs and also what editing tools do you use for editing your videos?

    1. We used a canon 5d mark iii to film and to edit, we use Final Cut Pro 🙂

  26. Love it! Would you mind sharing the artist and name of the song you used?

  27. Looks like a wonderful family trip! I think your kiddos will treasure all the videos and pictures you guys take of them. They are clearly very loved
    Dresses & Denim

  28. I LOVE all of your vlogs! They are too cute, you’re family is beautiful!

  29. Amber, the amount of love you have for your family is so inspiring! You look absolutely BEAUTIFUL in the red bikini!

  30. Love the swimsuit and absolutely love the video!! Totally inspires me to include myself in the videos more often! Do you use an iPhone with a selfie stick for the videos? We’re going to St John this summer with our baby and would love to make a similar video!

  31. OMG!! I just can’t stop laughing at you scrabble board lol
    That swimsuit is gorgeous. I went crazy when I saw it on you instagram.
    You look very fit, abs an all!
    Congrats girl!!!

  32. This is seriously so precious! Your family is adorable! Did you just use your iPhone or what camera did you use for filming? I think it’s a great idea to get everyone instead of just the kids!

  33. That is a wonderful idea!! I need a selfie stick????… In our fam I’m always the voice behind the cam definitely would be nice to see us all together!!:) loved Atticus putting the shell in his lil belly button ????✨

    1. Thanks so much!! And yes! Definitely get one 🙂 Some of our favorite pictures are from using it!

  34. You really are the cutest family. It’s so amazing that you followed your dream and look at you now! We’ve been following you since you were a starving student! Dreams come true if we trust them!

  35. I love that you guys video! I’m working on a project of documenting my grandparents, and I definitely want to include video in the project <3 Something about hearing voices and seeing how they move is so moving. I love photographs, but videos are important too! That's awesome that you and David got to escape for a little getaway on your own 🙂 I'll have to check out the video when I'm not at work, hehe!

    1. Thank you doll!! I am happy you liked it! Thanks for watching!! xo

  36. I love the red two piece! It looks as if it’d cover all the right places in the belly area for me 😉 I really love all the one piece swimsuits that you wear though. I’d like to buy a one piece as I am a mother of two & in my late 30s …I just don’t like wearing two pieces anymore at this point in my life. You have listed some really cute one pieces too 🙂 Love the pictures …looks like a really FUN trip & the video is great too …as you mentioned …having those videos for memories in the future, definitely!

  37. Thanks for the fun inspiration. Precious children. Have you said where the baby headbands (black bow one on Rosie) are from?

    1. Thank you so much!! I am totally obsessed with it 🙂 And aww you are the sweetest!! Thanks!! I try my best!! xo

    1. Thank you Bryanna!! That’s so nice of you 🙂 Thanks for reading the post!! And I would totally braid your hair!! xo

  45. That looks like so much fun!! I have a son who’s just a couple weeks younger than Rosie I think (just turned 3 months) – I’ve been reading your blog for a while and I really love how much you get to do/travel with two kids and you always make it seem so easy! Atticus doesn’t look like he’d ever throw a tantrum and Rosie doesn’t look like she ever cries in public, ha 😀

    1. We had a blast 🙂 And no way?! How sweet!! I am so glad you follow along, I love hearing from other mamas!! And they definitely are great travelers but they both have their moments believe me haha! xoxo

  46. Hey amber great post! Wondering where you got your bright green one piece?! It’s overly adorable (:

  47. What an amazing memory to look back on! Would you mind sharing what kind of camera you are using to film with?

  48. You do look especially nice in a one piece but the two piece works for you too. Family videos are fun. I kind of miss my family taking them. We don’t anymore. Maybe I should start doing them lmao.

  51. So so adorable! Atticus gets me every time. And I LOVE your swimsuits. But I’m a college student on a budget and definitely can’t afford those. Are there any “college student range” priced bathing suits that are as cute as yours that you know of?

    1. Thanks so much Rylee!! You are SO sweet 🙂 And I am working on a blog post for affordable swimsuits, so stay tuned for it! And Landon is my sister’s husband! xo
