Memorial Day Weekend 2012

The holiday weekend is here and I could not be any more excited. Knowing that the weekend will be a day longer makes me so happy. Spending lots of time with family and friends is on the agenda and today was day #1 of our busy weekend.

We started off the long weekend with a family trip to the YMCA, where we added Cecilia to our pass and spent quality time in the splash pool. Yes, we dropped off sweet baby girl off at the child care center and hit the pool with Bella. We splashed around for over an hour and decided to head home just before lunch. We ate lunch and put both girls down for naps. While the girls napped, we packed for our afternoon/evening at the beach.

When the girls woke up, we loaded up the car and headed to Siesta Key. We met our friends, the Pelusos and the Meekers, who had spent the entire day at the beach. As I mentioned in previous posts, our friends each had their first child, so it was our first dinner out with everyone. Six adults and four children... wow! Our little group has nearly doubled over the past few years and matured immensely. Four years ago, we all probably would have been drinking all day and continuing the antics well into the night, but not now. We split a pitcher of margaritas... yes, just one pitcher.

After dinner we headed to the beach to watch the beautiful sunset. It was absolutely amazing. I forgot how breathtaking a sunset can be! It was the perfect way to end a perfect day...

Love always,
Ian, Kim, Bella & Cecilia

Wow! How times have changed!
Bella LOVES the water. 
As Bella would say, "I get you waves!" 
The sun was just about to set... 
A meeting of the minds.
