Granti, Ben, the kids, and I started the morning, per our routine, at the beach. We had a great time! Babe absolutely loves running back and forth from the sand to the water and spent tons of time pretending that she was either a) a teacher or b) participating in a parade.
Harris spent most of his time playing with his sand truck and building sand castles, but he also figured out that he could stand up out in the "big softie waves." I could hear him and Ben laughing from the shore.
When it got close to high noon, Granti headed indoors and our little family headed to the pool. Harris earned himself a coke with dinner because he was able to retrieve his diving stick from 5 foot deep water!!!! We were so proud and celebrated like crazy. We headed out to Pompeo's for dinner once everyone was rested and dressed so my sweet boy could get his well earned treat.
It's been a couple of years since we've eaten at Pompeo's, but after last night's dinner, it's safe to say the place has earned itself a permanent spot on the vacation rotation. It was absolutely delicious.
We headed to CVS for a quick M&M pick-up after dinner, and then simply hung around the condo until bedtime. Granti bought Harry and Babe new toys while at CVS (a car wash for Harris and a fanny pack with pretend make-up for Babe), so the kids played around for a little bit while Auntie and DB got ready for the Harry Potter premiere.
Babe even lucked out and got a manicure and pedicure before bed!
There was a little talk at dinner of Granti being willing to try a different beach next summer, but Ben quickly put a stop to that. He did, after all, buy an "AI" sticker for the truck.
We love this place.
