Beachin' It

Hubby and I just got back from the beach...alone! That means with NO kids! It was fantabulous! We drove down on Friday...well, I drove while he snored...I mean slept most of the way. I like having quiet driving time to myself so it worked out. I listened to my boyfriend jam on the radio(Darius, duh!) and tried not to make too many potty stops! It was raining off and on when we got down there but, a rainy day at the beach is better than a sunny day at home, right?! So, we ate and shopped for a new bathing suit for me...which is HELL for me! No joke. Nothing fits me. EVER.

We spent Saturday on the beach. ALL day! It was so much fun to just sit there and talk about stuff(and people who's name we won't mention here!) and not have to watch kids..even though we ended up watching someone else's. If you've been reading our blog for a while you know that our favorite restaurant down there, Bayside Grill, closed down last year. Not sure why because they were ALWAYS packed! A new restaurant called Fat Backs opened up in the same place so we decided to try it that night. Not so great. It just made us miss Bayside that much more! Oh what I would give for some Black Bean Soup, Coconut Fried Shrimp and some Bread Pudding right now!!!!

We ate breakfast at Tacky Jacks Sunday morning and then headed back out to the beach for a while where we were entertained by several dolphins. There were at least 20 of them. I have never seen so many together other than on TV. They were jumping completely out of the water, slapping their tails around and just gorgeous! After that we headed back to the house to clean up and head home to our babies! We missed them SO much!
