Florida Vacation~ Day 2~ Beach!

Today was a very busy for us! We started the morning off by meeting our friends Donna, Kevin, and their daughter Shae at the beach. We had a great time playing in the sand and water and catching up with our friends. After some fun at the beach we headed out for lunch and had THE BEST grouper sandwich!! (next time I will take a picture!!)

Next, it was off to visit our friends, the Ponatoski's (Kathy, Jeff and Drew) and Giroux's(Shana, Kevin, Haley, Mia and Kyan) at the beach. We all know each other because we have all adopted from Taiwan with the same agency we used for Brady's adoption. Kathy's family has a timeshare on Treasure Island that they visit each summer and Shana's family lives in Orlando so this is our second annual meet up!! It's SO nice to see them and catch up in person and watch all the kids play together. The kids do really well considering they only see each other once a year (2x if we're lucky)!! Sadly, this year, we ALL forgot to take pictures because we were so wrapped up in visiting with each other. BAD, BAD parents!!!! LOL

The pictures are all from our morning beach outing:

Okay, I'm so sad you guys didn't take pics when you all got together!

Love the beach pics, though. Emily DOES rule the beach!

I can't believe we forgot to take pics either!! UGH!! Next year we will NOT let this happen. I had a big plan to put all the kids on the couch in the condo and get a pic. Just forgot that with all the little ones running around.

It was so great to see you all and the Ponatoski crew as well!! I love that we all get together!
