Holiday Weekending in Boca Raton

**The Recipe Swap Tuesday link-up would have been live today, but due to the holiday weekend we are taking another week off and will be returning next Tuesday to re-start our bi-weekly schedule**

Happy Tuesday! I love it when Tuesday is the start to the week instead of Mun-day. That one extra day is so refreshing isn't it? My long holiday weekend can be summed up in a few words... sun, friends, and fun.
Friends of ours booked a beach condo down in Boca Raton for the week and invited a bunch of us down to spend the holiday weekend with them. It was such a great time between the beautiful blue water at the beach, to fun in the pool, grilling out under the stars, and a boat day all day Sunday through the intracoastal waterway.
Got in on Saturday afternoon, and immediately hit up the beach before heading back to the pool and having some dinner and walking down to a beach bar to end the evening.

Sunday was boat day! We took the boat up and down the intracoastal waterway from Boca to Ft. Lauderdale, with stops at Lake Boca Raton and Lighthouse Point before pulling up for lunch at Kaluz. I've eaten at restaurants before where boats pull up, but I've never been in one of the boats that pulls up so that was a neat experience!

That evening, we grilled a bunch of steaks and corn on the cob and enjoyed dinner under the stars while cheers-ing to a beautiful fun weekend with friends.
Monday, we all had breakfast together before hitting the road to head back home. My mom sent me pictures of my brother marching in the Memorial Day Parade up in CT which always brings a tear to my eye. So proud of my "little" brother.
Monday was also H's birthday so since we partied all weekend with friends down at the beach we had a low-key dinner at Rock and Brews which is a cute dog-friendly bar and restaurant with music themed food and drinks. I decided to give my liver one last beating before closing the book on an amazing weekend by cheers-ing the birthday boy.
