Happy Monday! And Happy belated Father's Day to all of the dads out there. I hope everyone had a wonderful day spoiling the dads in your life. This was my second Father's Day without my dad, and my heart still breaks every time I think about him, especially yesterday. Father's Day just isn't the same without him here.
We took a little getaway for Father's Day weekend and headed to the West Coast of Florida for some fun! Our first stop was Busch Gardens on Friday where we met up with our good friends and their kids. Luckily, the rain was minimal and we had a great day. We left the park and headed out to the beach, where we stayed in an awesome 2 bedroom suite at the Residence Inn on Treasure Island. There's nothing like being able to see the ocean right from your balcony!
I grew up over there and the second I smelled the salty ocean air, I felt like I was home. Boy do I miss it!
We all had a great weekend playing on the beach, and thanks to my mom, the adults even got to spend a fun night out having drinks and dinner at the Hurricane Seafood Restaurant where I used to work many years ago. We checked out of the hotel on Sunday and then spent the day with our best friends where the kids had some pool time and I had some snuggle time with their sweet baby girl.
Now we're home and back to real life. I feel like I need a vacation to recover from our vacation! We took an extra day off of work to get unpacked and caught up around the house, while the kids get back to their routine at school. I was unplugged all weekend and it was wonderful, but now I have to catch up on the gazillion emails in my inbox, and everything else blog related.
Of course I have a ton of pictures to share, and I have to tell you all about our stay at the Residence Inn, so stay tuned...
