We went to one of our favorite parks Thursday evening only to find they had taken down the kids favorite playground equipment. Oh well. We enjoyed Publix subs while the boys walked around and the girls played.
Friday we went to Sand Key, our favorite beach. It was beautiful. Not too hot with a cool breeze blowing. It was the first time Samuel had been to the beach and the first time Ellie remembered going to the beach.
Friday afternoon we went to our favorite restaurant Johnny's. The food was as good as we remembered!
Friday evening we were able to visit with my brother and his family. We had such a nice visit, and enjoyed getting to know their children.
Saturday we went to another one of our favorite parks, Phillipe Park, and hung out for a while.
Saturday evening we went to the home of some of our dearest friends and had a get together with some of the people from our church in Flordia. It was great. I only wish I had taken some more pictures while we were there. (Thanks Rita and Jim)
Sunday, we went to my brothers church and then swam in the pool of the friends house we were staying at. The kids had a blast in their pool!
We went back over my brother's house for a cookout Sunday evening, and more swimming.
We had such a nice, relaxing weekend. It was a fun trip and we are so glad we were able to go.
We did pass around a stomach bug- Sam first, Anna next (and the worst), Ellie on way home, Zack after, me the day after we got home, and Paul Jr. today. Paul Sr. is the only one who hasn't gotten it. We were so nice, we even brought it home to Nana!
