Beach Weekend

I had such a wonderful weekend at the beach with my sweet husband and parents.  It was so nice to do nothing but relax, enjoy the perfect weather, and spend time with the ones I love most!

After spending all day on the beach on Saturday, we went out to dinner at this neat shark restaurant that had sharks hanging all over the ceiling!  I got veggie pasta, and everyone else got seafood.  

We left to go down to the pier, but ended up not staying for too long because there was a wedding reception going on and we didn't want to be disruptive.  

We drove around to see what else was in the area, and after seeing how beautiful the sunset was we decided to pull over to take a look.  It was absolutely stunning!

I just LOVE this picture of my parents! 

We walked around a little bit after the sun set and got some ice cream.  After heading back to the hotel we went for a late night walk on the beach in the dark.  It was pitch black and my dad had his flashlight so we were all crowded around him trying to avoid the hundreds of crabs that were EVERYWHERE!  We were probably quite a sight jumping and shrieking out there! 

We went back out to spend the day on the beach on Sunday.  Thomas and I somehow made friends this weekend with a couple little girls that were out there catching "crabs."  They kept coming over to show us everything they caught.  Anyhow, they got a big kick out of us showing them a huge crab that was on our blanket and they caught it and brought it back to its' "home" in the sand dunes.    There were quite a few crabs out there, but we luckily didn't get pinched. ;)

And Thomas kept himself pretty entertained with gymnastics moves and soccer! 

We drove home for Thomas's soccer game Sunday night.  His team won the championship!  It was a really fun game, and we went out for drinks with some of his teammates and their girlfriends/wives after the game.  We both had a lot of fun getting to know some other people in the area.

His trophy and medal are up on our mantle (for now hehe)! 

It was such a wonderful weekend and I'm so glad my parents invited us to come out to the beach with them!  We are so, so blessed with so much love!
