The next morning was Saturday and we had a family breakfast. In total there are 19 of us! It was raining in the morning so we lounged around the condo. After lunch the sun came out again so we got another half day down at the beach. Sarah and Jake stayed behind to nap. But Luke refused to nap so we took him to the beach with us. Soon after he got to the beach he crashed sprawled out on a chair under the umbrella. For dinner that night we went out to my favorite place...Pompano's! But Luke was super fussy from the weird nap he took so I had to hold him the entire meal. Not fun!

The next morning we enjoyed another family breakfast as it was Mother's Day! Kurt gave me a charm bracelet with the kids' pictures on it. It was perfect! I gave my mom a big surprise when I gave her a combo Mother's Day/Birthday gift of concert tickets to see Madonna at Phillips Arena! Again the rain delayed us until the afternoon for going out to the beach. Luke decided to stay in with Kurt and I took Sarah and Jake down to the beach and they had a ball! For dinner we all went out to a restaurant I had never tried called Boar's Head. It came highly recommended but it was not that good. Lesson learned.

The following morning was Monday and we finally had some nice weather right from the start. We got to enjoy a whole day down at the beach. We brought an inflatable pool so the kids could play in it filled with ocean water. We were pretty sure none of them would want to actually get in the ocean. But Sarah proved us wrong on that too. She loved the water! That evening my Mom and her friend Devon volunteered to stay in the condo and watch the kids so Kurt and I could have a dinner alone. We went to our favorite place (Captain Jack's) for the giant crab legs...yummy yummy! Then he and I went to see the new movie Avengers. We ended up walking along the beach and then sitting by the water talking for awhile. It was a great night.
