Pass-A-Grille Beach {2018}

Greg and I celebrated our ten year anniversary on July 5th. We packed up the car and headed to the west coast for a few days away. Our first stop in Tampa was the Oxford Exchange. We had a great brunch in the most adorable place.

After brunch, we headed to a few breweries before getting to the beach. Our first stop was Cigar City, home of Greg’s favorite beer, Jai Alai. Our next stop was Green Bench Brewing Company. It was a super cute place, but not our favorite beers.

We made it to Pass-A-Grille Beach just as our room was ready. We had a great view and headed right out, across the street, to the beach for the afternoon.

Our anniversary dinner was at The Mill. We had the best charcuterie board and a great dinner! Afterwards, we headed to 3 Daughters Brewery for another drink. I wish we lived closer to that place because it was awesome and the kids would love playing there!

On Friday morning, we went for a run around Pass-A-Grille. We saw the whole town in a short amount of time. Afterwards, it was time for drinks and brunch before heading to the beach. It was a cloudy day, but we both got fried!

We walked to dinner at Grace on Friday night, then sat on our deck to watch the sunset. We headed back out later for ice cream before calling it a night.

We woke up to a rainbow on Saturday morning and headed home. We had a great few days away and definitely caught up on the sleep we have apparently been missing!

Cheers to 10 years!

Legoland {July 2018}

On Saturday, we headed to Legoland for a final trip before our passes expire. We’ve had so many great experiences there the last few years, but we are ready for a little break. The Wrights joined us on Saturday too, which made it even better!

We rode the horses for the first time ever!

LEGO Friends are their favorite!

Untitled

There were a few new Star Wars additions to Miniland, which Crosby was very excited about! I think LEGO Chewbacca was everyone’s favorite.

Untitled

after legoland, we stopped at hollywood studios on the way home for our first visit to toy story land! the green army men may be my favorite.

Untitled

the wait wasn’t too bad for the alien swirling saucers, so we decided to try them out!

Untitled

Untitled

our favorite spot in hollywood studios, the baseline taproom.

Untitled

we did two parks in one day and it was hot! we’re crazy, but it’s also summer so why not? the kids were so great and we had such a fun day!

4th of July {2018}

We kicked off our 4th of July holiday with the Firecracker 5k in our community! Kenley and I signed up the morning of, so there wasn’t much training involved in this 5k. My expectations were low and I knew there would be a significant amount of walking involved. Kenley was excited that her friends were there too!

She did a good job but you can definitely tell the difference from a 5k in January versus a 5k in July. It was hot and humid!

After the 5k, we had some friends over for food, frose, and fireworks!

Friday I’m in Love {June}

Happy Friday!

1 (1)

{1} I’m not sure I have ever actually binge watched a show, especially when I was taking classes. However, now that I have all the time in the world (so to speak), we’ve been actually binge watching TV. We’ve almost watched two whole seasons of The Good Place in the last couple of weeks. It’s really funny and the short episodes definitely make it binge-able.

{2} We’ve been spending a lot of time outside and in the pool this month. The kids have had a SwimZip rash guard for a couple summers now, but we seriously love them. The zipper makes it super easy to get on and off without having to pull them over their heads, and it’s a whole area of the body that doesn’t need sunscreen! These have also been great for water day each week at camp.

{3} I got my Corkcicle stemless wine glass for Christmas and I’ve acquired another one since then, but it has been perfect for summer drinking by the pool. There is also a lid that comes with it. I highly recommend!

{4} I started Beachbody’s 80 Day Obsession a couple weeks ago. I’m really loving it so far. I am not usually one to be able to workout at home or at night, but I’ve been doing both! I’m only on day 11, so I’ll keep you posted as I make my way to day 80.

{5} A friend recommended the Chore Pad app which we implemented at the beginning of the summer and it’s been going really well! It’s super easy to use and the kids have responded really well to it. We don’t always follow through with these type of things, but we’re still going strong which is also a win for the parents.

What are you loving this month?
