Gordon and I usually try to go on a couple of dates while we are in RB. Date nights only happen about once a month when we are at home so this is our chance to get a little extra us time in!! For whatever reason, this year we just had one lunch date. After putting William down for a nap, on Mother's Day, we headed over to Cowgirl Kitchen for a quick lunch. I was a little sad to miss out on the free mimosas they were serving mamas, but made up for it by eating chips and queso. :)
Most of our time was spent on the beach this year! We did have a couple of lunch's at George's (another favorite....best Sesame Crab and Avocado Salad), took lots of bike rides, Gordon went deep sea fishing with his brothers, we had our annual family shrimp boil and fish fry at the house and this year we celebrated Emily's 30th birthday with a grown up night out (big thanks to the nanny service we've used for the past 3 years)! My mother in law arranged a fabulous dinner at Cafe Tango for the birthday celebration. You can click here for their address. It's located in the cutest little cottage and is by reservation only (so call in advance if you want to go). Everything was delish!
This year, William got a little friend to play with! His new cousin was as cute as can be. Thankfully, William was gentle with her and super sweet. I know they will have a blast together in the years to come.

We always come back home refreshed and rejuvenated! Only 8 months until we get to go back again!!! :)
