What a weekend!

Hi all! Boy, did we have a great weekend!
Friday, we headed out of here and got to Ventura, CA by 4:45. Checked in, freshened up and we headed over to Joe's Crab Shack for dinner.

Look at our view from our table! 

Breathtaking right?!

The food was AWESOME!! My husband HATES seafood, so it's rare that we go somewhere and I order it. Well I went all out-crab and shrimp! Yum. It was just fantastic. I also enjoyed the every half hour singing and dancing by the staff-LOL! Too funny.
We then went back to our room and crashed. Saturday, we went thrift store shopping(*squeal*) at the shops on Main Street in Ventura. Some of them had AMAZING stuff! I got a LIKE NEW Spacemaker can opener for 2.95 and it works GREAT! After we were done there, we headed down to the pier and rented a Surrey so we could go for a ride! I've always wanted to rent one of those things, so we did...and boy, was it work! PHEW! I took LOTS of breaks and let the men do the work while snapping some shots!


After that, we got lunch and then headed back to the hotel for a nap. Then came the shopping! We went to the Camarillo Premium Outlets and shopped away! Got a few neat things and then headed to dinner.
Sunday, we went to a REALLY cool park that had a pirate ship and a zip line attached to it. The boys LOVED that. They also went down to the shore and collected rocks and shells.

We had an amazing time. It was much needed getaway, and now I'm refreshed and ready to continue running the race despite the few hurdles we've had to jump so far.
Heb. 12:1-2 ...And let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith...
Thanks for virtually coming to Ventura with me! Be sure to come back and check out an AWESOME giveaway I'll be doing soon, you WON'T wanna miss this one!!
