Beach Babes

We spent the day at the beach yesterday! It felt great to finally get some sun. The sun however was SUPER hot so we basically had to spend the entire time in the water to feel cool enough. Fine with me, though! My freckles come out big time in the sun, as you can see...

Jeff showed off his handstand skills.

Then things got a little crazy in the water-Lexi took down Mike (or tried to at least)!

The sunshine makes everyone so much happier.

After the beach we headed home for a nap (love vacation) and went out to dinner later that night at an amazing restaurant called Seasons 52. They serve seasonally inspired dishes that are all under 450 calories! Almost all of their meat and even vodka is organic. We started off with some martinis...

They boys ordered the restaurant's signature orange infused organic vodka martini.

We started with appetizers. Chicken and shrimp flat breads.

Dinner was delicious and beautifully plated.

Dessert was even cuter! Mini desserts delivered right to the table. We had peanut butter cup and mocha-both were great.

Mike and Lexi-the wonderful couple who treated us to this wonderful meal!

We headed home after dinner and popped some champagne of course!

The rest of the night was spent relaxing-playing DJ Hero 2 and Kent (our favorite card game).

A perfect night spent with friends :) LOVING Florida and the people we are spending our time here with!

We went to a water park today and all acted like little kids. It was great fun! I couldn't really take any pictures since the entire park was wet, but I will take some tonight of our dinner at Mike's restaurant.

I'll leave with a question! Do you have a favorite vacation spot? Growing up my family always rented a beach house in OCNJ and I will most likely continue this tradition with my own family one day. Where is your or your family's go-to vaca?

That restaurant looks so great!! Vacation spot: Disney world, I've been there with my family over 13 times (lost count!) We have some of our best memories at Disney! I am excited to one day take my kids there :)

My family loves camping and every year we go to Polson, Montana where there is a really nice KOA campground. They have fun pancake breakfasts every Sunday, mini-golf and a swimming pool. The best part is that the camp-site looks over the Flathead Lake, which is absolutely gorgeous!

So excited to see your vacation pictures! Can't wait till we are soaking up the sun in Mexico :) The food you are eating looks amazing...oh and cute freckles!

Great pictures! It looks like you're having a wonderful time. My family and I don't really vacation but we do try to spend time together in our city whenever we are free to see each other. I hope we can all travel somewhere together in the future though!

On another note, where is your bathing suit from? It's too cute!

Thanks! My bathing suit is from Target! I got it last year but I think they still carry it this season. It was a great buy...I love it!

The trip is going pretty darn good so far. Nice job with those star burst jelly beans :)

Our favorite vacation spot is any place we haven't been too before!

The food looks amazing! And all for under 450 calories for a restaurant meal is sorta low plus some of it is organic too. Don't usually see that in restaurants! Glad your having a fun time~

Vacation spot: South Vietnam. That's where most of my family's from. I'm the only different person on my dad's side because I'm half Chinese (or 1/4? Not too sure) but we'd only go to Vietnam because we know the language. If you were to suggest a different place to go, my dad would say, "Why would we go there? We don't even know the language!" (for France, Japan, etc.)

We have a Seasons 52 right by us and I have been DYING to try it. Growing up we went to Stone Harbor, NJ every summer, but now my parents own in Brigantine. We are there almost every weekend with the entire family, I love it!

looks like so much fun! We don't have a Seasons 52 here, but I've heard so much about it!
