weekend recap

(a bit overdue) This week has been crazy busy, but I wanted to write a quick post about our weekend. We had the opportunity to hit the beach again - so we took it! This time with all 3 kids in tow.

Arre and I arrived a day earlier than the rest of the fam (with the girls) and packed it in - we hit Grand Boulevard for the water fountain, had dinner at Cantina Laredo (yummy guacamole), and the next morning, picked up breakfast from Donut Hole (yum)

then hit the outlet mall - because what else do you do when you have 3 kids with you? Mary James loves to have an attitude these days (even if nothing calls for it) and she kept on about how she wasn't going to pick out anything (we had told the older 2 they could each pick out one outfit at crewcuts). Until she walked in the store and saw this....

and declared that "I think I changed my mind"..

After that we had a really hot lunch (hot as in I have never sweated so much in my life)

..and then hit the pool. The rest of the trip goes like this - pool, beach, pool, pool, naps, pool.

Remember my complaint that we couldn't celebrate our anniversary...well, as usual, arre was the only one listening and took it upon herself to surprise us with reservations at my favorite restaurant in the area (Cafe Tango)

It was sooo yummy, i can't quit thinking about it. After about 15 minutes of enjoying some quiet with no kids, and some really good wine... I noticed that we were the only table in the (small) restaurant with heart confetti?! allover our table!! (yes, it took me that long to notice). It was pretty funny.. sweet gesture, but Jim and I don't do cheesy. We behaved ourselves though and resisted the urge to sweep it off before anyone else noticed.

It was a really fun weekend but I was so glad to be home. I believe we will be staycationing it for the 4th - I'm still beat... and I have a feeling Arre's idea of wanting to wait a little longer to have kids was confirmed.

Everyone have a happy and safe 4th of July!!
