Florida-Day 4

This was our theme song this week (Kenny Chesney's "Outta Here")

Lets leave town on a permanent vacation
Lock up the house pack up the station wagon
Make paradise our final destination
As long as we're outta here

There ain't no time like the present they say
Lets cruise all the way down A1A
Put the top down and catch a few rays
Baby we'll be outta here

Anywhere you want to go
As long as its sunny weather
Let the time fly by I don't mind
As long as we're together




We actually DID get to cruise all the way down to A1A today and it was awesome! The weather couldn't have been better and we put the sunroof down and the radio on and totally enjoyed every minute.

Here are some of the amazing houses we passed along the way from Palm Beach to Delray. They are just so big and beautiful, I was taking pictures out of the window the whole way (that's why they're a little blurry!)







Here is where we ended up today...Delray Beach, Florida!





We spent some time on the beach...







For lunch, we ate at a little local restaurant right across the street from the beach called Boston's.





I think eating outside on a pretty day is probably one of my MOST FAVORITE things to do ever!







We stayed gone almost all day and had the best time. I just sat there on the beach trying to soak it all up so maybe next week when I'm back in the grind, I can conjure up that relaxed, laid back feeling again!!

Tonight we went back to City Place. There was a guy there playing Spanish guitar like nobody's business. It was so much fun just sitting out and listening to him and enjoying the evening. Here is a picture of what we were listening to!



City Place is one of our favorite places to go when we're here. It has lots of shops and restaurants and fountains and sitting areas. There are so many great stores there: Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Williams-Sonoma, Anthropologie, White House-Black Market, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, Tommy Bahama, etc... It's sooo much fun to shop there. We shopped a little bit, but it was late, so we ended up going to Barnes and Noble and getting some books for the ride home tomorrow.

Here are some pictures of tonight:











We have had the BEST time this week!! Mike was so sweet to let us stay with him! It was fun catching up with him. Tomorrow we leave to go back to Charlotte. Please pray for us to have a safe trip. Goodbye Florida!!
