Birthday Weekend

I had the best weekend! As you know I had Friday off, so we did in fact take the kids to the beach. I had never been to this beach before and I don't know why it took so long for us to go there, it was awesome, no waves, shallow waters and not crowded. But first some chocolate/butterscotch chip pancakes to start the morning off.

While I packed the car up, the kids watched some Netflix. This is the half "cheese" faces because they were really into what they were watching. I can't remember what they were watching.

Car unpacked and ready to get to the beach, which was about 10 feet away, haha.

Baby Fox was trying to get Mini Fox to look at the camera
 Baby Fox loved swimming in the ocean, I can't believe it's taken us this long to get him to the ocean, bad parents! But he is swimming and comes out to see us and's so salty!!! Then said it tastes like fish, LOL.

Break from the ocean for some lunch.

She's waving to the camera and saying "Hi"
He wanted to sit on my lap for the rest of lunch.

She wanted to sit with Nana.

We borrowed a boogie board from someone, the kids were so excited.

She really wanted to pull him.

He's humoring her...not really, I think he was just enjoying the ride, he really wasn't this bored in real life.

And then apparently I didn't take any more pictures on Friday. Mr. got home and brought home stuff to make homemade pizza.

Decided to not go on the hike, I got so much sun on Friday that I didn't feel like being in more sun, and was just tired, so wanted to sleep in a bit. I did hit up the gym before the kids woke up though. It felt great running, I haven't done that in a while.

I thought the weather forcast was funny today, it says that we are going to have "abundant sunshine" haha, thanks for that weather channel.

 After breakfast the kids played with the kinetic sand, they love that stuff.

After that Mini Fox insisted she wanted a tent between the couch and the coffee table, so I made a tent and they thought it was hilarious and could not stop giggling.

I had a lot of errands to run, so while Mini Fox and I ran our errands Mr. and Baby Fox went to the movies, they saw, Shaun the Sheep, they thought it was cute. Of course neither of us took pictures, it was just too hot to think...okay not really, but just didn't think about it while trying to get all my errands done.

Nap time when we got home and I did this. Tutorial coming soon. If anyone needs some pink tissue paper, I have a TON! Oops, talk about buying too much, oh well! None of the videos told me how much I would need, so I figured it was a lot...FYI it's not, I will include how much I used...or at least an estimate.

I made some cake to try and figure out cakepops, but didn't actually make any, because I ran out of time, so I have a lot of cake right now, opps. Perhaps I'll freeze it and use it for the actual day, one less thing to do...

Isn't this every kids favorite thing to do?

After Mini Fox woke up we went swimming, which I forgot to take a picture of, but I did get her running away not wanting to go in to take a bath. Looking back to see if she's getting away with it, haha.

Sunday was my birthday! I actually went to a baby shower, without the kids, in my book that's a win :) It was back in my hometown, so three hours of driving with a good friend, perfection.

She didn't want the strawberries, till I said I would take them with me and put them in the baggie, then suddenly she got interested.

I was posing for some pictures, and Baby Fox wanted in on the action.

Such a cute baby shower, and I am so excited for my friend. I've known her for over 20 years.

We've all been friends since junior high and still friends, love that we can go months/years without seeing each other and it's like no time has passed when we do see each other.

When I got home Mr. had decorated the inside and outside of the house, forgot to load the pictures, oops. But he said the kids had a blast decorating.

Love this picture of us.

This girl loves herself some shrimp, she just kept asking for more.

My mom gave me the Baby/Mini Fox "cheese" face, haha.

The kids helped me open gifts, Mr. got me the Urban Decay Smoky palette I wanted, yay! Plus when he went in they asked if he had an account, so he gave them our phone number and they said, hey it's her birthday, here's a free gift, and then I got a two free Nars Lip pencils, woo hoo. They are so smooth and creamy, great day for me.

My sister got me this, we had been talking about this a couple of weeks ago, so excited to do this. Anyone else have a coloring book? Now to find the time to actually do this. Baby Fox wanted to break in the pencils, I told him it was for adults only, haha.

And what is a party without a family selfie?

Great day spent with family and friends, I feel so luck to have these people in my life. Now if only my brother and Sister-in-law were there, then it would have been perfect.

Only 5 more days of work and then I'm off for 10 days! Woo hoo.
