It was Kory's birthday. We spent it by going shopping at the outlets for some bathing suits for him, seeing a matinee at the Fork & Screen of Minions, and then dinner with Kelly and Ron at American Q.

Kory and I drove up to Orange Park to drop Bella off at my parents house then headed up to Hilton Head for our annual family vacation. Gotta love the view from the Marriott Grande Ocean.
We ate at Skull Creek Boathouse for dinner. It was so nice to sit outside and eat yummy seafood!
We headed the Poseidon Club after dinner for a little dancing. I felt old, but there's a small part of me that misses my clubbing days!
We just had a lazy day and spent time out by the pool.
Every day we head to Pool Bar Jim's for a mid day drink. His drinks are always served with extra so it's really a 2 for 1! And I always have to start with a BBC.

Another lazy day. This time I had a frozen drink they created for me.

Today's drink was a Mocha Cloud.
It was so hot out and there was no breeze. I checked and it was even hotter than home in Florida.
So pretty though!
We went to Steamer Seafood for dinner--my favorite place to go every year.
We went to the beach in the morning. I HATE the beach but Kory likes it and my mom loves it so we went and sat with her some.
My final drink of the trip was a banana and pineapple coconut daiquiri.
We had lunch and then left for home, picking up Bella on the way. (Side note--my parents had a video camera set up to watch the puppies while we were gone and it was so sad. One of the days she spent a lot of it whining and howling.)

I had a movie date with some of my kiddos from last year to see Minions.
Then a friend and I were going to do some dance classes for National Dance Day but apparently you could register in advance and they were all sold out. Oops!
