let's go to the beach (sqt)

^^^ Drop that hat on Lucy! ^^^
 I am not a style blogger at all. Just a wanna-be.

Sorry not sorry for bombarding this post with more than 7 photos. The children are just so cute. We were all happy in sunny St. Pete Beach because it was low-80s for the high temps.  Five days at the beach ~ that's what we signed up for! Give us all the sunshine!

There was one rainy day (Tuesday) so we spent the day souvenir shopping. We went to the movies. We had lunch at a japanese steakhouse. We got the usual souvenirs ~ magnets for our fridge and the grandparents', shot glass for my mom who does not drink {she collects them}, shirts for the children.

We stayed at a timeshare in St. Pete Beach. Thanks to lolo and lola for the timeshare points.
We would love to stay there again but the usual full-kitchen is missing and instead only a kitchenette. The restaurants and bars are overpriced. Yet because of convenience we had lunch and I bought drinks there. For dinner, we ventured to nearby restaurants.

We had crab legs and seafood at Shells.
More seafood at John's Pass in Madeira Beach, north of Treasure Island.
Thai food and sushi at Nori Thai (St. Pete Beach).
More seafood and crab legs at Oyster Shucker.

Daniel and Isabel inherited my love of crab legs and cracking them!

Lucas @10 mos

Before I sign off until Easter Sunday, let me post 7 quick takes about Lucas. Linking up as usual with Kelly.

1. This boy loves to eat!
He eats everything now. He had his first taste of gelato on our trip to Lima. He eats chicken. He had the rice of the arroz con mariscos dish. We did not give him shellfish or shrimp or fish but rice had some seafood juice and he did fine (thankfully!)

He likes finger foods - hello cheerios and goldfish.

2. He had his first international trip!
And it's in South America.

We took Daniel to Aruba. But Lucas made it  south of the equator.
His older sibs, Lucy and Bastian still have him beat by mileage since they went to the Philippines last year. But Lucas holds the crown for going south of the equator!

(Isabel, I hope you won't read this in the future... Because you're the only one who has not been outside of the country yet.... your time will come. I did not leave the Philippines for my first plane ride until I was 11 years old. You will have me beat for sure.)

3. such a flirt.
Being away from his siblings for seven days made him crave for attention. Hubs and I were not enough for him. When we were at the park or church or restaurant, he stared at the ladies and waited and waited until he is recognized. He then gave them the cheesiest, most handsome Lucas smile ever!
