my birthday weekend.

Sooooo my birthday weekend-
aka the perfect weekend.
Hands down the best birthday I've ever had!
And it wasn't because of gifts or vacations-
it was because who I was with.
We laughed, relaxed, made memories, ate lots of food, talked and really had the best time being together.
Everyone was happy and healthy-
which is the biggest blessing!
I love my little family so dang much, and I was thrilled to have my mom with us that weekend too!
I do need to give a little shout-out to my mom especially for spoiling all three of us!

They surprised me with these beachside condo.. and I was over the moon!

I mean, look at that view!
We were in paradise.

The very first night Zak was on call at the hospital so my mom and I stayed in and planned out all the cooking for the weekend-
the kitchen in this place was so cute and we couldn't wait to make some fun dishes for everyone!
The patio was also our favorite part so we couldn't wait to have eat with some pretty views.

Our condo was seriously darling!
Every little detail was adorable.
From the game board table in our bedroom, to the classic baby toys that were left out for Liam-
it was all picture perfect!

It was a Tommy Bahama theme, and we totally felt like we were Cali locals lol living in a dreamy beach house.
If only that was our everyday home!

Each morning we'd have mandatory breakfast and coffee on the patio-
nothing, and I mean nothing is better than waking up to breakfast with a view.
It's the best way to start yah day I learned!

Sorry Liam, you'll have pancakes one day!

Later on we hangout by the cliffs and then had lunch with more family!
I would have pictures of the whole afternoon...
but remember someone STOLE MY CAMERA.
So just pretend you see yummy Mexican food, complete with homemade nachos and enchiladas.
And a game of Settlers of Catan.
We were introduced to thet game that weekend and have been playing like, every other night since!

Ah having a grandma around is the best!
Not only because she's the best company.. but it also means an in home sitter!
Thanks mom for loving on Liam and giving us rookie parents a little break!
Liam sure does love {and miss} his bunny!

After food and games we and watched the sunset.
I love how people in beach communities all gather up around the beach and watch the sunset each night.
It's so sweet to see people enjoying nature.
Sometimes I feel like we don't appreciate things like sunsets enough-
I mean they're stunning!

Afterwards my mom and went on a little frozen yogurt run!
I know who I got my sweet tooth from, that's for sure!
Thankfully there was a little shop only a couple blocks away.
Woot woot.

Here are some more little details from our beach cottage.
I'm still so bummed that I don't have more photos and videos to share from this trip..
okay no more thinking about that!
Anywho- I loved the farm style front door!
And those hibiscus flowers were outta this world.

Such a sweet weekend with the ones I love in a beautiful place.
Counting my blessings and thanking the Lord for this time spend together!

Check out my next post for more birthday pictures and my thoughts about turning TWENTY SIX!

Have an awesome day!
