We were meeting our friends Ryan, Adele and Tavie on the sandy Florida beach to catch some waves and some rays. It was our first time back to the beach in over two years and we loved every minute of it.
It was Marco's first time at the beach ever. I had heard stories about other children not liking the feel of the sand, being afraid of the waves, or not liking the salty water... none of the above applied for my son. He loved the sand so much, he allowed Ryan and Tavie to bury him it it!
He had such a blast jumping through waves and running down the shore line. Then he got to do the funnest thing ever... SURF!
Check out his concentration! He was made for this stuff.
Jonas stayed with the girls under the umbrellas, sippin' lemonade. Next time he'll be out there right along side his big bro.
We had such a wonderful time hanging and relaxing in the beautiful Florida sunshine. It is one thing we truly do miss about living there.
That evening we went out to dinner with Ryan, Amie, Tavie, Adele and Kevin to... THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY! (Uh, where else?). It felt like old times... except we missed Ben (of course).
Even though we were feeling the exhaustion of driving for over 16 hours (at that point) and a full day at the beach, or trip was just getting started. Stay tuned for more adventures from TF4! :)
