Beach Bloggin'

Annabelle invited her Grammy & Pop (my parents) to the beach this past weekend. The weather was wonderful and we had such a great weekend, that I convinced Devin to let us extend our trip! We called my in-laws on Sunday afternoon to see if Annabelle & I could just stay the week....(Since they all had to be at work on Monday morning, DW and my parents would drive back home on Sunday and me and Belle would stay at the condo)...

Then we lined up our visitors for the week...

Our visitors for Sunday and Monday night happen to be our BFF's, Carrie & Allie Claire...

We called them spur of the moment on Sunday afternoon and told them to pack a bag and jump on I-95 and come down for a couple days....After much persuasion, Allie Claire's daddy agreed and sent his two favorite girls our way....


We enjoyed Belle & Allie's first ever slumber party! There were even barbies, snacks and dress-up involved.


(I don't have the cord for my big camera with me, and most of the pictures are on it, but I did take a couple at dinner tonight with my little camera....)

We decided to try something different for dinner and went to a place a little north of Daytona that my friend, Charon had suggested. It's called the River Grille. It was a neat place for sure and the food was good, too.



"Teether-ella" is chewing on E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G she can get her hands or mouth on. She's like a puppy or a goat! Ha... At dinner, big girl got to sit in a high chair for the very first time! Exciting, but Momma wasn't "prepared" for such a first, as I didn't have a cover for the chair or a placemat... Yep, so little "Teetherella" was trying her hardest to chew on the table. GROSS! I tried everything in the bag to divert her...
Toys, burpies, teethers, and spoons...
even her flip flop...
NOTHING worked...

Thankfully, Aunt Carrie came through and had an extra disposable placemat. It was no surprise that Little Miss didn't care for the cover....something about all those germs looked and tasted so good...

While Belle was busy chewing on the table, Allie Claire was putting away some sweet potatoes....

After dinner we headed back to get the girls settled in and down for the night....

Tuesday Carrie has to be at work, so we'll be leaving EARLY to get her there...Belle & I riding along with them. It will be good to see DW for a day and then we'll go back to the beach Wednesday... we're taking my Mom back with us for the rest of the week...
I'll have lots of pictures, I'm sure....
Until then....Have a great week!

I'm glad you're having a good time at the beach! Did you like River Grille? It's a little more casual than Down the Hatch is....
coleslaw isn't good, but that's only what I hear...I don't eat coleslaw, so I can't give a true opinion!

Okay so the cutest thing I've seen lately was Annabelle teething on that dirty table! I am still smiling over that sight. We had so much fun with you girls. Thanks for the invite!
