Brazilian Lemonade

I hope you had a fun Memorial Day weekend! Jeffrey and I spent the weekend enjoying each other for what could be our last weekend alone...for the rest of our lives! My doctor told me last week to start walking to get this little girl to drop. So we came up with some fun activities for walking. 
On Saturday we visited the Los Angeles Arboretum.

 There were TONS of peacocks at the Arboretum. I caught this one, mid-caw!
 An activity we have always wanted to do is to take the Amtrak to San Clemente. They train lets you off right on the beach! It was really fun. We got on a Union Station and rode the train for 1 1/2 hours there. 

 The weather was perfect! It was cloudy all day, but the perfect temperature. We walked up and down the pier, then into town for lunch and ended our afternoon there with a nap on the beach. There were a ton of families with their kids. It will be so fun to come back here with Didi in just a few years!

 Big Momma on the beach! 
 Here is a picture of the gorgeous Union station! After walking 5 miles Sunday, we spent yesterday resting and relaxing! It is almost June, the month our baby will be born!!

Being pregnant means no alcohol! It is easy knowing it is better for baby, but sometimes you just want something fun to drink. I found this recipe on Pinterest and it was SO delicious. You could add alcohol to it if you would like, but otherwise it is the perfect "mock-tail."

Brazilian Lemonade
3 cups water
3 limes
1/3 cup sugar
3 Tbsp sweetened condensed milk
 Quarter the limes.
 Pour all ingredients into a blender.
 Blend until smooth.
 Pour through a mesh strainer to remove pulp and peel.
 Serve over ice!
