Recently I took Ava with me to my Grandma's lake house in Gimli for a much needed girls weekend & it was just PERFECT! We packed up our overnight bags on Friday night and early Saturday morning we hit the road just us girls - this was a first for us and we already know that girls beach weekend will be a new tradition.
Once we got to Gimli the first thing we did was walked around town & took in some local shops. I love all the signs that this little town has.
I especially loved this coffee shop Flatland Coffee Roasters - I ordered a latte and it was THE BEST yet! I love seeing local shops striving so if you are in the area go get a cup!
Another shop favorite this ones been mine for a long time now, Tergesens. She loves it for all the suckers she can get for 1 buck.
While I was reading on our blanket and drinking coffee she played in the sand ... It was overcast sky and although nice out it was still early in the morning very windy & cool near the water so jeans and dresses it was, no swimming just yet. Then I hear Ava yell "Mama come see" I run over to her thinking she found another cool rock to take home with us ... then I seen this that she wrote in the sand I laughed so hard and gave her the biggest hug "I love you too, Turtle. Wow that's awesome Ava"!
* Best Girls weekend memory for sure!
I loved watching her play and make things in the sand, listen to her talk about things. I loved that it was just us girls (we love and missed our boys) and we could just make our plans as we go - "where should we go now Ava"? " let's go for lunch" it was awesome! I look forward to girls beach weekend again soon before the end of this summer.
Oh yes Girls weekend was a great success and new found tradition - but once we returned home it was clear that we all missed each other. I love one on one time with my children & think it is very important for us both to take the time with the kids like that. Once I returned home Ethan and I went to Jurassic World and had a little time together there, all in all it was a great weekend!!
