I took off Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday from work, which is just long enough to feel like a got a break... but short enough that I'm still in the loop and don't have to take a whole afternoon to catch up.
My husband went to the Keys for a few days at the beginning of the week for lobster mini-season. They caught 90 lobsters! Pretty awesome.
I got to spend the whole, amazing day on Thursday celebrating my sweet son's 6th birthday. I don't remember the last b-day of his that we spend the WHOLE day together, since he was always in daycare and would beg me to go to school on his birthday so he could have a party. Now, since he is in summer camp, he didn't mind missing it. We started celebrating as soon as he got up and didn't stop until waaaay past his bedtime when he finally passed out. He even got his very own 'smash' cake, since he has been begging for one forever. (we watch America's Funniest Home Videos way too much!) I made it with Cool Whip and sprinkles and he had a blast smashing his face in it.
Then it was off to the beach to spend the rest of the weekend with friends and family. A bunch of us got rooms at this little motel that is right on the beach. It's sort of become a family hangout at least a few times a year! I took some pictures the first day and night, only on my phone though... I was so bummed I forgot our good camera! After that... I don't think I even took my phone out of the room for the rest of the weekend.

We had a small beach birthday party for Hudson on Saturday and I didn't even take ONE picture! I'm sure I will regret it later, but I just wanted to ENJOY myself. Without worrying about my phone, or getting everyone in a group for a picture. I sat with friends I have known for 20 years and watched our kids play together. We all got in the water and played in the sand and just had GREAT time! We sang 'Happy Birthday' with popcicles and THEN ate pizza. (since the pizza guy was about 2 hours late... sorry to my starving guests!!)
