The Sun is Good For You


Hi there! I hope you had a nice long weekend with family & friends.

Even though I taught class yesterday morning, I enjoyed the extra day with my family and it made the weekend more special having Marc home on a Monday.

Going into the weekend I had one thing I wanted to do, get to the beach!

That is just what we did :)

The weather was about 90 degrees on both Saturday & Sunday so we decided to get there early.

Saturday we spent the day walking around the beach, playing in the water, and watching Ava have a blast!

I couldn’t help but be happy seeing her smile. It’s so easy to smile when you are at the beach and the sun is shining, right?

We stayed until our bellies got hungry and we ran out of snacks! We headed home to eat some food and let Ava take a nap at home.

In the late afternoon my mom and I made a trip to the nail salon for pedicures. It was a nice relaxing way to finish out the day!

Sunday we pretty much did a repeat of Saturday and got to the beach early.


Ava couldn’t wait to go play again!


I actually didn’t snap any pictures at the beach because Marc and I spent the entire time chasing Ava and making sure she didn’t run away. She wasn’t as calm as she was on Saturday. She practically ran sprints around the beach and didn’t stop until we left.

Lets just say we didn’t last more then 2 hours before Marc and I were exhausted!

We stopped at Soundview deli on the way home, I had a grilled chicken salad, Marc got a sandwich, and Ava had some olive pizza which was delicious. We ate pretty fast and once we got home we were all wiped.

I debated whether I should take a nap myself or be productive around the house. I opted for productivity and ran some errands before dinner.


I also snapped this quick belly shot for you.

I don’t know about you guys but when the sun is shining it seems like the days are brighter and everyone is happy. My body enjoyed being outside for most of the days and when it rained Monday morning I was kinda bummed.

Luckily it cleared up in the afternoon and we were able to get outside and Marc cooked my family a lovely dinner.

That pretty much sums up our weekend.

How was your memorial day weekend? Did you get to the beach or spend the days outside?
