Weekend at the Beach

This past weekend we loaded up and headed to the beach with some of our friends.  We rented a house in Port Aransas for the weekend and we were looking forward to getting out of town for a few days.  The boys wanted to spend some time golfing at a new course down there and the girls wanted some time in the sun.  Some of us arrived Friday afternoon and Ryan, Tyler & Mark were able to get in a round of golf.  Alison and I rode along as well and enjoyed the scenery.  I think I overestimated my ability to be out in the heat that long as I didn't feel so great but I will say the ice cold mango towels they had out every few holes definitely helped!



That night we ate in town and called it an early evening.  We're definitely not the same crazy bunch we were back in college but I don't think anyone minds :)

The next morning the guys got up early for another round of golf and Alison, Nicole and I headed down to the beach for a walk and to set up chairs and an umbrella.  We laid out for a few hours and then came in to cool off and to figure out our lunch plans.  We ended up grabbing burgers at a local spot and had lunch once all the guys came back to house.  We then set out for an afternoon on the beach!  We lasted a few hours but I couldn't take too much time in the sun and everyone was ready to head in at that point.  We enjoyed some time on the patio of the house with a few snacks and then all got ready for dinner.  We ventured over to a nice seafood restaurant in town and enjoyed waiting out on the back porch for our table.  We had quite a view of the boats and enjoyed watching everyone come in.





Later that evening we hung out at the house, listened to music and played a little poker.  Again, not a crazy evening out on the town but I think everyone was content.

We headed back home this morning but I think we all agreed that it was a nice break from the norm and we all had a good time.  May even be a new tradition we'll continue year after year.  Hopefully with some babies in on the fun next year ;)

I also wanted to mention that today is Benny's 4th birthday!  I can't believe he is 4 years old already and he has truly been such a great dog to us.  He stayed with Ryan's parents this weekend and they celebrated this milestone by giving him a special treat this morning with a candle!  We received a text with this picture and it  made me smile.  Glad to know he is in such good hands :)
