A Remington First :: The Beach

IMG_3230

Short and sweet, Remy’s first beach experience was a huge success!  Lots of sunscreen was lathered, fists full of sand was ingested, and never ending facial expressions telling his exact feelings… perfect!  We had a lovely time just relaxing and appreciating our time in the sun.  Hope you enjoy the pics!

Also!  One of my dearest friends, Sarah, came to visit from Ohio with her husband and kiddos!   So thankful for her and our friendship which has stayed strong even while being far apart!  Her kids are so well behaved and got along great with Bennett!  They are so lucky to have her as their mama- she’s truly the best!

Love you, Sarah- I know you are reading this ;)



Another family weekend at the beach…

We had another beautiful weekend at the beach last weekend!  This time Husband was able to join us, which always makes life so much better.  He took Bennett way into the ocean for a the first time ever, and Bennett did really good.  He didn’t like Daddy taking him off his shoulder, but didn’t mind the water all over his body and the waves crashing into him as long as he was held close to Daddy’s chest.  It was really a sweet moment.  When he got out he was ready to snuggle in his towel, and pretty worn out.  Overall, it was a nice intro to the ocean for this babe!

I cannot get over how amazing the beach was last weekend.  We finally had a nice little cold front come through Florida so the air was a crisp 62 degrees with a wind that chilled just the right amount for hoodies.  I didn’t take very many pictures, but you can clearly see that we had the beach to ourselves except for a few little creatures :)  Now would be the perfect time to visit Florida if you are planning a little getaway!!  Hope everyone’s having a great week!

So Long Sweet Summer…

  Although summer tends to overstay it’s welcome here in Florida, we are so looking forward to “fall” even if it only means buying pumpkin scented candles.  This past weekend was spent frolicking on the beach with the mutts and obsessing over the gorgeous weather.  Husband did a lot of body boarding while I chucked the ball around for the dogs.  There were some {small} shark and {big} manatee sightings which is always exciting ;)  but overall it was just another fantastic weekend!  Hope everyone had a great Labor Day!

Husband’s birthday weekend was one to remember!  In fact, Husband said earlier this week that he will not be drinking for a month, that’s how memorable it was!  Ha ha ha!  We had such a great time with our friends and my brother in law came in town from Miami to join in on the action.  We hung by the beach all day and had a nice dinner to finish the evening.  Our friends brought a PEANUT BUTTER birthday cake which is Husband’s absolute favorite flavor, it was a full-on fiesta a la playa!

On Friday night we tried a new spot called Blue Agave where we had tacos and margaritas.  It was alright, definitely the hot spot in town because it was packed!  I’m a little critical of Mexican food since I was born and raised in TEXAS (yes, TEXAS has to be in all caps and bold at all times) and you know, my state is right next to the border so… yea, I’ve been spoiled with the best Mexican food on the planet.  Oh, and my family on my dad’s side is Mexican… so that adds something to my Mexican food snobbery too.  Sorry Blue Agave… but I will probably be back since the atmosphere was definitely fun!

A few days before Husband’s birthday, my gorgeous cousin, Kelly, came to visit me from Chicago!  It was SO good to catch up with her and have some much needed girl time.  Kel, I hope you and Robert can come back and visit again soon! xoxo
