This & That: End of Summer

This is our first week back into the school routine and while we had a wonderful summer - it feels nice!  We finished out summer with some quiet days, lots of pool time and a nice BBQ with both sides of our family.

We also had a nice family night for Penn State's first game of the season - on a Thursday - and a big win.  The boys got to have a little picnic in the family room for kickoff.

Last but not least, we left the kids at home last night for a few days to celebrate our eight wedding anniversary at one of our favorite places - Kiawah Island.  We missed the boys but had a great time relaxing.

Beverly Hills

We finished out or week at our favorite spot, The Beverly Hills Hotel.  We arrived to some treats, got settled then headed down for a long pool day.  We got the boys room service at the pool then we got room service later after they were asleep.

We went out for a couple things the next day then again, it was back to the pool for a long pool day!  That night we had a babysitter and enjoyed a delicious dinner out at Catch.

Our last full day we did breakfast, went out for a little bit then another long pool day.  We did Friday night Italian takeout from Dan Tana's and got ready to come home the next day.

Pelican Hill

We spent a wonderful week in California last week - we started off with a few days in Pelican Hill - by the time we landed, drove down, grabbed some groceries, etc.  we just enjoyed playing outside, room service and bed early for our first night.

We woke up refreshed and adjusted to the time change.  There was a kids play party set up that we took the boys to then grabbed lunch at Pelican Grill.

We let them nap and relaxed on the patio then went to the pool for the rest of the day, stayed out late then ordered takeout on the patio - very relaxing.

Sunday morning Derek and Tatum were out early for a round of golf while Teddy and I relaxed - we took a long walk then went down to see them finish up.  We decided to switch our dinner to lunch so we went to Javiers.  Then it was time for naps and another late evening at the pool with Crystal Cove Shake Shack takeout for dinner.

Our fourth day we enjoyed pool time, massages and then our only dinner out - a delicious meal at Mastro's Ocean Club.

Our final day consisted of a pretty similar schedule - we did a family walk to grab breakfast then headed off to spend the day at the pool relaxing.   Then we were off to visit a close friend for the night.
