Jackie's Vanderbilt roommates all turned 40 this year and Mook headed up organizing a week at the beach at his in-laws.  We had a great time with the kids, Chloe hit it off with Troch's kids that were her age.  Most evenings we cooked in or ordered in but Mook wanted a meal out so he took us to Mame's favorite spot in Ponte Vedra.  Mame is Mook's grandmother-in-law who is 98 and in assisted living but has a wonderful beach home we all shared.  One of the evenings Mame come to meet everyone and that was a ton of fun.

LuLu's had two tables for ten people on the patio overlooking the water waiting for us.  The parents had in mind for the kids to sit together, which was fine with Jackie and I, Chloe enjoyed all the goofy action at the table.  The waiter took the kids' order first, I had no idea what Chloe was going to order but she said she loved her Pasta with butter.  That's something I don't think I've ever seen her order.  Their entire table devoured the baskets of bread while waiting on their food.  When we got to order, I had the Fisherman's Catch Sandwich with blackened Salmon, lettuce, tomato and onion on a Kaiser roll with house made pasta salad.  I loved its size and the herbed mayo was really seasoned right.  The dinner was $13.50 and the perfect size.  Jackie ordered the Grilled Swordfish Special with asparagus and rice pilaf.  Jackie loved it and commented at the meaty-ness of the fish.  I'm not sure he'd had swordfish before but he liked it.

With Chloe's dinner, ours and part of Mook and Sallie's meal our total was $99 for dinner for 5-1/2 people, not bad I'd say.  In doing research I found that you can arrive by boat to the restaurant.  Check out the website for details.

I will say Mame had it right on sending us to LuLu's.  It was delicious, fast and the ladies bathroom was in perfect shape.  When you're in this part of Florida make sure LuLu's is on your radar or on your GPS Waypoint System, she won't disappoint!

Chloe recently saw a photo from when she was 5 and we took
her to South Beach Miami for the Orange Bowl and buried her
alive and she wanted to repeat that on this trip...Sanju is burying her...

This was Chloe just minutes out of the car from that
12-1/2 hour car ride....she loved the sand and view...

Mook made pancakes one morning, that's Will Trochhi, Carter
McGraw, Chloe and Sanju Patel

We all had passes to the Surf Club at Ponte Vedra,
the pool was awesome, I spent a ton of time in the lap pool
each day.  This was the family pool with a big yellow slide.
