Fun was had by all!

We have had some visitors the last few weeks.  I so love visitors and it seems FL is a bit more appealing than CO was...especially when the snow is falling up North!

Visit #1: A couple weeks back our great friends from CA came with their 2 girly girls! 
Swimming in the "warm" pool!  S was a good sport.
At the Siesta Key Beach...known for it's amazing white sand.  It was a bit chilly this day but that never slows the kiddos or dampens the fun!

Requisite sand castle building! 

This is sweetie pie #1! 

...and sweetie pie #2!  I loved getting to hang with these little girls.  I miss little girls are getting so big!
The wind was surprisingly wimpy at the beach so S's kite didn't work this day but we took it to the park a couple other times and LOVED it.  The kiddos all handled it great and I got a cool.  We definitely need one of these 
All the boys and girls!
C and S have been buds since elementary school and when we all get together it's just hanging out with family.  We are lucky to have many friends that we consider just a part of our family.

Thanks S, M, M and S for making the trek our way...we loved it! 

I am so thankful for our friends and family and we can't wait to see who else will come visit us.  I know of a few visitors already...yea!!!

I am glad to see that you are settling in to life in Florida. When I lived there, I only swam after May. I love the warm water in the summer.
I also loved when the season ended and the tourists went home. LOL

Love that pic of the guys and kids! I got one too, but, I like the grouping better of yours. Wish we could somehow have been everywhere longer... the beach, the forest, the pool, kite-flying, the couch!

I guess if I had that close by I'd never get anything done! Looks like a fun time. We were in CA this summer and sand playing was a must. Instead of castles we made sand alligators. We gotta be different I guess, lol!

Thanks for thinking of me for the award, that was sweet!
Congrats to you!
