Friday arrived quickly last week. We were suddenly face to face with the weekend and had nothing to do. First of all, I can’t even begin to tell you how nice it is to not have anything to do. Secondly, we sure as hell did an awful lot for having nothing to do.
Friday evening we stumbled upon an outdoor concert on the beach by our house. It was packed with kids, blankets, an over-crowded beer garden, an ice cream truck and a totally horrific Beach Boys cover band. And… it was awesome. Sadie loved running around getting crazy. She loved dancing, eating food outdoors in the grass and most importantly – she loved being dragged around on a blanket like she was a dolphin caught in a fisherman’s net.
Seriously… she would’ve done this all night long if I kept going.
Saturday we met up with friends and spent an early afternoon at the beach.
The beach is the Holy Grail as far as Sadie is concerned. There is no place on earth more amazing. She flourishes in the sand and water. It’s a good thing she was born with blonde hair and blue eyes, because this girl is destined to be a surfer girl. I can totally see it.
The sun and the wind and the sand are much more preferred, but when put in a tight spot… any water will do. Even the kitchen sink makes for a good time.
Sunday also turned into quite the adventure when we decided to be total tech tourists and go check out Facebook and Google Headquarters in Silicon Valley.
Google is nuts! It goes on forever and ever… just block after block of buildings. They even have their own park that is open to the public. One of the coolest/ most bizarre things they had were these Google bikes, painted in all Google colors just parked all over the place. Not locked up or anything. Apparently they are just there to ride around and have fun or get from building to building.
We ended our radical weekend with a temper tantrum at Chili’s. It was so cool. Sorry folks, no pictures of that.
