Tuesday Three: Labor 3

I can't believe it's Tuesday already
I had an amazing, fun weekend with
family and friends and Labor Day Monday
felt like Sunday.You know what I mean?
I'm linking up with Miss JLA at Stiletto's & a Fishing Pole

This weeks Tuesday Three,
share THREE things you did over the weekend that you really enjoyed!

3. My husband's step sister and her husband invited us to go out on their boat in the ocean. We went to this island off the inter coastal inlet to the ocean called Disappearing Island. You can only access it from a boat and when high tide comes in the island disappears. The water was so cool and the sun was just perfect without a cloud in the sky. We took the kids and they played with their cousins and their friends. It was a fun six hours in the sun.
2. We took a road trip to the West Coast of Florida to celebrate my Aunt's 50th Birthday. My cousin's invited us to a surprise birthday party at my aunt's house. It was a 2.5 hour drive but it was so nice to sit in the passenger seat and enjoy the scenery along the way. I have never been to my aunt's house and it was a pleasant drive through rolling hills (yes, Florida does have hills) and country side, old town shoppes and small towns with one traffic light. We had a great time hanging out with my cousins and seeing my second cousins. They grow so fast!!

1. We took the kids to eat dinner at Chili's Bar and Grill Friday night. For the first time we waited about 5 minutes to be seated and as requested we sat in our friend Brett's section. We try to have him be our server and show patronage to a good friend. The kids were so well behaved and waited patiently for their dinners. We enjoyed some yummy salsa and chips and laughed while Little E kept dipping his chips in the salsa and then fed them to me. I tried a new meal for the first time in years!! I ALWAYS got the Chicken Crispers but I was going to change it up so I got Quesadilla Chicken Corn Salad. Oh my goodness! It was amazing! I highly recommend it.

So if you had a great LABOR DAY weekend and feel like sharing, head over to Miss JLA's blog and link up for Tuesday Three!!
