What? It’s Monday already? This weekend was a complete blur, but also tons of fun.
Friday night there were homemade margaritas with my friend Tracy (I’ll have to get around to posting the recipe! FINALLY we found one we love).
Saturday started out with L’s first dance class!
There’s a dance studio near my gym that I’ve been eyeing for a while – and a few weeks ago I signed L up for Creative Moment. It’s a 45 minute class for 2-3 year olds where they learn a combo of ballet and tap (to which I say – holy expensive tap shoes). To say L was excited would be an understatement.
L was one of the older girls in the class and I was SO impressed with her focus. She sat calmly and listened to what the teacher was saying – and was not shy about participating.
After dance, we headed to the gym where I tested out my new shoes and also did a 25 minute upper body workout.
I’ve only put 4 miles on them – but I LOVE them!
Up next was lunch at Davis Bakery (it’s hard NOT stop by for lunch!), followed by naps, and then a drive over to my dad’s beach house to celebrate my dad’s birthday and Father’s Day.
Because the hubby works on Saturday, we weren’t able to get there until close to 6. Still, the kids fit in a swim at the pool and then we enjoyed pizza, some drinks, and watched The Muppets (which I have now seen 800 gazillion times). We also celebrated my Dad’s birthday with multiple cakes and ice cream, which were so good that I neglected to take pictures.
AJ & Carissa were waiting for us.
On Saturday I got up to run and proceeded to completely tweak my neck while putting my shirt on. OUCH! I am still in a TON of painand can’t turn my neck to the left at all. (Anyone have any advice?) Getting old(er) sucks.
So instead, we went on a long walk along the beach to collect shells and check out the scenery.
See? I had good intentions.
We really could NOT have asked for better weather!
The kids REALLY wanted to watch The Yellow Submarine with my dad (he gave it for them for Christmas), so we all took a visual acid trip (have you ever watched that movie?) and then headed to the pool again for some swimming.
Since I couldn’t really swim or play with the kids, I volunteered to pick up lunch, snacks, and beer just as Ben and Christina arrived. At least I was good for something!
After lunch, we finally headed down to the beach for a few hours. I hung under the umbrella and read, while the boys attempted to catch some waves and the kids enjoyed the sand.
Around 5 the tide started to get close and we decided to head in and order some Chinese food for dinner. We ended with the trip with round 2 of cake and ice cream, followed by the kids immediately passing out in the car. You know it’s been a good weekend when you hear snoring in the back seat after only driving a mile down the road!
I think this goes without saying, but I hope both my Dad and my hubby had a WONDERFUL Father’s Day Weekend – they definitely deserve it!
