My happy day!

Today is my 28th birthday...that's right, 28 is the new 33. Nice huh?

We had a terrific day. Anthony took the day off from work and we headed over to Edmonds. We started off with lunch at Anthony's Homeport Beach Cafe. The lunch was great. Then we headed over to Marina Beach park and played in the water. Saying that Sydney loves the beach is an understatement. She started off by scooping sand into the water, then Anthony and Sydney threw rocks into the water, and she ended her beach time by running back and forth in the shallow and cold water with about a dozen other activites in between. She had a blast. We walked up to the play area and played a bit on the toys. This is a great park-definitely on our list of one of our faves.

We headed home, all took a nap, and then headed over to meet my dad and Kay for dinner at a favorite burger place, The blazing Onion. After dinner we enjoyed a nice outdoor concert and even did a little Pier 1 shopping.

It was such a beautiful day today, it was high 70's and it was perfect. I feel so blessed to be able to spend such a great day with my wonderful family. And now we're on a countdown to the next birthday in the family...Sydneys! I can't believe she is only a month and a half away from turning three!!!!!

Here are pictures....

Enjoying her fish and chips The beach!
Sydney ran up the beach, put sand on her shovel, and ran down and put it in the water. Over and over.

This was at dinner. We had to wake up Sydney from her nap which 9 out of 10 times does NOT work in our favor. The girl gets cra-nky. Anyway, after a tantrum inside the restaurant I took her outside and she told me she needed time to herself. So here you go...I am sure it was a funny sight to see a toddler eating all by herself but ten minutes of this and she was much better.
