Two Meatballs: Beach, Please!

It’s that time of year again!  The annual Beard week at the beach!!!!  I look forward to this week so much every single year.  I love the beach and love the uninterrupted family time…I mean a whole week with my nephie nuggets!? #heaven  Before we left, I made it to Pure Barre a few more times and saw so many friends!!!! #meetmeatthebarre #newdatehotspot I love exercise dates!


Soon fun!  Then, we drove down to the coast on Fathers Day and as I waited in line for the key to our getaway, I found this!


v76 by Vaughn, our mens grooming line at Samuel Cole Salon and part of the Luxury Brand Partners family, reposted my ode to my dad! I could have DIED right then and there.  And honestly, look at that picture.  I clearly adore my dad and always have.  We are so alike and so different.  We get along so well and so easily.  We fight when we need to and then its over and we are stronger for it.  He has taught me so much and it’s so nice that our relationship has evolved into an amazing friendship!  JB, you are the ultimate.  I am so thankful to have you in my life and so lucky to call you my dad. Who gets to be this lucky?! Love you. #clankclankclank #mygymbuddy #wheresthecheese?! #imtheleastveinpersoniknow  #maintainyourlane #sufffffahhhhh #youryoungyoullgetoverit #idontorderdessert #beardsforlife #peytonsplace

Once I recomposed myself, we got our key and arrived at Summer Winds!  This time we rented a place we had never been before…and it WAS GORGEOUS!  Everyone threw on a bathing suit and headed down to the pool!


At first I thought this pic looked like I was birthing Wyatt, but now I like to think he is launching me in the air ala synchronized swimming style!


Then we went down to the beach to poke around…you know, look for sharks!  Even though we brought down so much food to be healthy, it was already 6 and no one wanted to fire up the grill!  So we went to El Zarape and enjoyed a lovely little mexican meal together!


Followed by some Life!


We all crashed pretty early that night and Wyatt slept in my bed!  WE woke up early the next morning and me, dad and Wyatt went to the gym after a light warm up in the room with Chase!


So cute!  Wyatt was a beast in the gym and we all got a hell of a workout and finished off with a haul up 4 flights of stairs…64 stairs to be exact! Shew!  Then we had healthy smoothies and promised that today would be better than the mexi fest last night!


Then more games with Nanny!


And we were off to the beach!

My fair skin can only take so much sun, so Chase, my lovely little snuggle bug and I had a snuggle fest/Sponge Bob marathon/spy session/shoot em up target practice in my room!


Then we were responsible and made a yummy and healthy dinner!


We had spicy grilled chicken, jalapeño sausage, cumin corn, roasted sweet potato chips with guacamole and veggie kabobs!  Yummmmmmm!!!!  Then it was off to bed!  We woke up the next morning so sore and in absolutely no mood for a work out…we then made an every other day pact!


This was a lazy snuggle morning, Kelly made breakfast everyday!  Thank you Kelly! #icookwhenIwanttocook


Then lunch was left overs…so yum!


We pooled it up…chicken fight style!


and then made a yummy Zoodle and meatball dinner with spicy aspargus!



Then Wyatt and I drew it up…Simpson’s style!



This kid is so talented!  He asked me if he could edit some photos on my phone and created this!


He blurred the background and changed the lighting!

Smart and creative and oh so sweet! And then we all yucked it up with America’s Funniest Home Videos. Knee slapping it up!


Then we got up the next day, worked out and had a healthy breakfast!


Then, I just felt bad so I laid down to take a nap…I ended up sleeping for 5 hours!  Little did I know I was working on raging sinus infection and bronchitis!  When I woke up it was 3 and the house was empty, I threw on a suit and met the gang down at the pool.


Wyatt gave me a piggy back ride and then we had a handstand contest!



And then we did our favorite…try to catch us mid air jumping in the pool!  Thanks for your patience mom!


A few family pics!



Chase had the dirtiest feet known to man so he and mommy got showered and pretty together!


Dinner was crock pot bbq and slaw!


The next day was the hottest, most humid day of life, so we went putt putting! Ugh, holy first circle of hell folks!  And it was packed like a mother!


There were lots of hole in ones, met downs, swamp assyness and duck hunts!


This is how over it everyone was at the 15th hole!

Then it was over and we saw this hilarious van!


The boys wanted to water bumper car it up and I’ve never been more jealous…I wanted to hurl myself into this 3 foot pool!


Then we went to lunch at the Crab Shack, for the second day in a row and also for the second day in a row, I made yummy bad decisions!


Don’t even ask me what is going on with my hair bc I don’t know!  So much fun!  Then Chase was unintentionally transformed into Cornholio from Beavis and Butthead! #tpformybunghole



Then there was much much needed lounging!


We had leftovers for dinner and then a BLIZZARD, also for the second night in a row!  So good and totes worth it!  All of the sudden it was my very last day! Ugh!  We had a leisurely morning. Then hung out at the pool, playing board surfing, safari ride, shark, hey mister, matchey matchey and the ABC game #marshmellowchips We had a late lunch of hamburgers, chicken legs, spinach salad and zucchini and onions!  Everyone made lunch while I packed up! Thanks guys!!!  I had to skidadle early bc Anna Broome was getting hitched! It was hard to sat goodbye but I was excited to go to the wedding of the century!



To my family…oh how I love thee.  Sleepovers and snuggles wit the kids, laughter and inside jokes with the adults, as much pool time as one can handle, watching Hope Floats #birdie, working out, being healthy, being bad, but mostly being together! Cant wait to do it again!  More on Anna’s wedding tomorrow!!!! Glad to be back in a routine!
