Beach Vacation + Scenes From Our Weekend

I honestly can not believe that we are almost half way through July and that Sterling starts kindergarten in one month.  This Summer has seriously flown by.

We left Figure Eight Friday and I am always so sad when we leave.  It is one of my favorite places ever.   It was nice to come back on a Friday though and have our whole weekend in front of us.

Time with the family is always good for the soul.    My adorable parents who organize this trip every year  and put so much into making sure everyone is happy.  It is truly our favorite week of the year.

The three amigos. Of course we had to pack their matching pjs (on sale).

The deck was our favorite part. We sat out here every night.
I am wearing BCBG Dress.

Frances and I in our matching Marysia bathing suits.

I lived in my bathing suits most of the week but one day we ventured into Wilmington for lunch and to shop. I am wearing a size 4 in the romper for those curious about sizing.  Seems pretty TTS.
We ate lunch at my favorite restaurant Brasserie du Soeil.  Everything was amazing especially the mini desserts. It was the perfect sweet bite after our lunch.

Beach Bums.

Frances and Finley comparing their bellies.  Pretty sure Frances wins.
Sterling watched shark week all week.  He is so shark obsessed we got him this giant shark stuffed animal at a toy store in Wilmington.
My mom, my sister, and I in our Barbara Cobb Beach Hats.  I love this picture and love the two of them so much.

Friday was spent unpacking then we enjoyed ritas outside after it cooled off.
Vodka + Mint + diced jalapeno + fresh grapefruit juice + salt rimmed glass = amazing.

Saturday we ran errands.
This JCrew dress is only $18 now.

Saturday morning Frances Moon got to be a baby model for the Templeton Silver new line.  If you aren't familiar Templeton Silver is a line of gorgeous baby pacifier clips.  They are sterling silver and then turn into bracelets once they out grow the pacifier.  I snapped this photo in between her shots.

I took Sterling to a fun event hosted by Gapkids at Camp Perri Saturday afternoon.
They had the coolest flower crown making station.

Saturday night we had the most perfect summer meal | Caprese Salad + White Bean and Pancetta Salad + Grilled Corn and grilled chicken (not pictured).

Sunday was spent relaxing- well at least these 3 relaxed but I was able to squeeze in a run and ctach up on laundry!

Have a great start to your week.

What size do you have on in the Rebecca Taylor romper? Trying to buy online so wondering if it's true to size? Thanks!

I don't know who has better swim suits- you or FM? Y'all are seriously the cutest! And I love love Brasserie. They are consistently great! I often go there for a quick glass of Rose and an order of mussels. So good!
