Right near the beach!!
Mom bought Larbs and I (with Larbs’s expertise) matching beach coverups from H&M Photo of all three of us to come soon!
And yes, our bathing suits were coincidentally very similar! And yes, we’re both wearing visors! And went to the same college and have very similar mannerisms!
Matt and his sister, Chelsea, are twins too!!! Check out their matching noses
Perhaps my favorite part of beach vacations is spending all day dirty in the sand and then showering and putting on comfy clothes and enjoying the sunset.
But I do not enjoy getting a burned torso on Day I. Must find an umbrella and shade!!
After showers we played a few rounds of Gin
Matt poured me a Moose Drool Clone – and it made me tispy after just a few sips!! This girl cannot handle much alcohol!
My mom made her famous Sherry Cheese Dip for the trip. I dove into it head first!!
Ate my weight in delicious Wheat Thins. Must have been the beer
Before dinner Kanz did a Mead tasting of a mead he scored well on in a beer competition recently
It was good, but I only made it through a sip. It was mighty strong!
Dinner tonight was nothin’ but perfect
We carried the table onto the upper deck and feasted on the most amazing views of the Atlantic
On the menu was a childhood favorite: Mom’s Herb + Garlic Chicken. Thanks to mom and dad for their night of cooking! (We each have a night…although I think Kanz and I have more nights assigned than any other couple!)
Just chicken baked with herbs, garlic and lots of buttah
The gravy is pretty much all butter and herbs!
Plus simple Garlic Gold roasted broc
Plus a couple of bottles of red
I had most of a thigh, rice and broc
Had a little of wine with dinner. It went so well!
After dinner we all went on our third beach walk of the day. I love nothing more than walking on the beach!! Exercise today was 2 miles x 3. Walking at dusk is the best!!
Once home, we pulled out the desserts. I think we have a problem with too many desserts on one table!
And those silly Breyer’s ice creams that were on sale. They were soupy (my fav!) and SO GOOD!
Matt’s birthday cake and I had a quick one night stand – my spoon attacked some bites of this last piece -
And I ended up eating some of this watermelmon and some ice cream (shhhh – straight from the carton!!)
Thus is beach behavior.
Now if you’ll excuse me, Edgar Sawtelle and the dogs are calling me!!
