Five on Friday #7

What a weird week this has been! Usually when we have a weekend away, we use the beginning of the week to get our lives back to normal, but with July 4th falling on a Tuesday and our YMCA having their Independence Day celebration on Monday, we have been all discombobulated this week!! Lets get back to something normal…Five on Friday!

ONE- We FINALLY tried a new-to-the-area burger place that everyone has been raving about! Barcelona Burger and Beer Garden is located in Downtown Mooresville and is AMAZING!

I had the Madrid which had cheese, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes and a spicy pepper sauce with a side of roasted veggies.

Anthony had the All-American, which had cheese, bacon, tomato, lettuce, onion and house sauce with a side of onion rings.

Hailey loved her burger too!

We all tried each others sides and I would give a thumbs up to the roasted veggies, onion rings, mac and cheese and fries!

We let the girls pick a dessert! They do different desserts daily and they wanted this caramel chocolate one…I can’t say I blame them!

I can’t wait to go back! They had a chili-cheese burger that I desperately need to try!!

TWO- Our 4th of July turned out great despite me being sad about missing my big family party and parade we would attend if we were in PA!

We had some rain on Monday which kept us from the whole YMCA celebration, but the girls got to see fireworks, so I take that as a win!

Then Tuesday, after Anthony got home from work, we headed out on the lake with friends and got to see fireworks again!

THREE-Two days of being up until 10:30+ has made for some tired and cranky girls! Aurora fell asleep on the couch, sitting up with her IPAD in hand on Wednesday night. Our seven day beach trip should be interesting.

FOUR- Speaking of the beach, we are heading to the Outer Banks with my mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law and niece this weekend! Have you ever heard the theory that going somewhere with your kids is called a “trip,” not a “vacation?!” Hopefully we will get a little bit of relaxation time!

Here are some “flashback Friday” pictures from the last time we all went to the Outer Banks together! Hailey was only TWO (well, almost 3)!!

FIVE- July 12th is Anthony and my NINE YEAR anniversary!! So since I will be taking a week off from blogging, I thought I’d take the time to wish Anthony a happy anniversary!

And with that…I’ll talk to you all in a week! Hope you have a great weekend and week ahead!
