It’s hard to believe how nice the weather has been the last couple of days after the winter/spring we have had so far this year.  We could not pass up this opportunity to take advantage and get in some beach time!  The boys and I have a Mother’s Day tradition of renting a surrey and riding around the island.  We have done this for the past 5 years and it is a special time for us.  It’s just the three of us pedaling around with no distractions.  We have the best conversations!  True quality time.  At this point, it is pretty good exercise as well – they are not as small as they were 5 years ago!


Then we headed to Bay Village for our favorites – pizza, lobster bisque and fudge.  Soo good!

We spent the rest of the afternoon with Nana and Popop where Popop spoiled us with a great dinner.  Of course there were presents.  😉

And Nana made us a sinfully delicious chocolate strawberry shortcake.  It was almost too pretty to eat.  Almost…

The beach weather continued today.  Yay!  My mom friends and I love when it is beach weather while the kids are still in school.  We get to go to the beach like we were teenagers again.  So after a fun run with the girls I met Eileen, Melissa and Gina at our street.

So, I am wondering,  do you relax in the sand at the beach or spend more time in the water?
