Celebrity Sighting in West Palm Beach!

We made it to West Palm Beach around noon today. Last night we stopped outside of Jacksonville to spend the night then drove the rest of the way this morning.

Today we didn't do much except lay by the pool and read. That's perfectly fine with me! Everyone is here for Steve's cousin's wedding, so we got to do some visiting with his parents and aunts and uncles and cousins this afternoon. I think the highlight of our day happened tonight, though. Steve's brother, Mike, recommended that we try a Mexican restaurant called "Rocco's Tacos" downtown, so that's where we decided to go. Here are Laura and Lindy with Steve's mom and dad right before we left.

We love going to downtown WPB on Thursday nights because they always have live bands playing and they have fountains where the kids can play. We used to take our kids down there when they were little. And everyone is out walking their dogs and eating at little sidewalk cafes, etc.

Anyway...Rocco Tacos was so much fun. It's an open air restaurant that kind of spills out onto the sidewalk. They have delicious chips and guacamole that they make at your table. Mmmmm!!!

This is a picture of the cool lights that were in there. I just liked them so much that I had to take a picture.

But as we were sitting there I looked over at the booth beside us and guess who was there???!!!....Kelly Ripa! She was there with her kids and a few other people. Nobody in the restaurant seemed like they even noticed that she was there! (or else everyone was being polite and leaving her alone.) I tried to pretend like I was taking a picture of Laura and Lindy and instead I really took a picture of her! But it was so dark, I couldn't get a good one.

Then, while we were eating, they started playing the song "Tequila" and the bartender jumped up on the bar and started pouring Tequila in everyone's mouths. ( was a loud and pretty "happenin" place!)

But about that time she turned around to watch the whole show going on, so I snapped a picture!

It is so much fun to see someone famous! :)

It has been a little cool here today, but tomorrow it is supposed to be around 80 degrees. I am planning a long day out in the pretty sunshine. Aaaahhhh....I love Florida!!
