Family Fun at Mulligan’s Restaurant

It seems that when we go to visit my family in Florida, eating at Mulligan‘s has become a tradition.  It sits at the corner of  Jensen Beach Blvd and Indian River Drive overlooking the Indian River.

The atmosphere is fun and airy, and speaks “come on in and have a good time” when you walk by.  It fits into the “artsy” feel of down town Jensen.  With a whimsical decor of beach and island you really feel like you are on vacation, even if you lived here.

What I also like about it, is most times we are walking in with somewhere between 4-8 kids.  And makes me, as a mom, feel comfortable bringing my kids there.  They even have a kid’s night on Thursdays with Balloons, Face painting, Kids Eat Free with purchase of adult entrée & beverage. Now who can beat that?

My view on food is to eat food from where you are visiting.  So if you are near fresh seafood, get seafood!  I go the fish and fries, (yes maybe not the healthiest thing on the menu-but sooo good!)

Packing and unpacking

It seems that no matter how much I try to be organized, I still find myself packing at the last minute! And this was the case again!

Now I had laid out all three little ones clothes last week. Seems that we travel at change of seasons, and I always end up needing to fill in gaps of what we don’t have. Last Oct was at the end of the of the season and I had two more boys with us. One was very hard of his clothing so I had very little 4/5 ‘s for the boys.

I am packing for a three part trip. First part the kids and I are heading to Fl 4 days early to visit my family. Then up to Disney for two days and then on a five day cruise. I will have to do laundry at Disney cause I don’t have enough outfits to carry us through. That’s ok!
Jeremy, my 17 year-old, packs his own clothes.
Our next challenge is suitcases, and go to pack them. On the cruise, since many are not conducive to larger families, we have two non connecting rooms. Which means Dan gets the older boys and I get the two younger ones. So four suit cases for us.

Now, at 4am the morning I leave, I have kids packed. Shoes in duffle bag. Car items ready to go in car, Disney stuff sitting out.

With that all said and done, it was one suitcase too many. So I took three outfits out for little kids and stuck in the big kids suitcase. Dan will bring the other one down!

Our car is packed-which is why we bought our Van, but Dan is driving it down Friday.
