When I asked Jonah how he wanted to celebrate his birthday he said he wanted to go to the beach. That is easy! To make it even more fun, Drew and I decided to spend the weekend at the beach to celebrate Jonah and to have a mini vacation.
The condo complex also had two pools. The one was an infinity pool which was very pretty. The second was a lazy river pool with a small swimming area as well. With all these great places to swim, the crazy kids wanted to spend time in the hot tubs. It was 90 degrees so why is beyond me. I stayed in the pool!
We celebrated Jonah's birthday early on Saturday (it is really on Tuesday). He wanted tacos for dinner...his favorite. He asked for a 7 layer cake because he is going to be 7! I baked 3 8x8 chocolate cakes and 4 8x8 vanilla cakes and assembled them at the condo. It turned out so much better than I imagined and tasted great as well!
Drew and I realized that this is the very first vacation that just the 6 of us have taken...EVER! We definitely made the correct decision to go to Galveston for the weekend. We had a great weekend playing and just being together. It was really wonderful!
