Around here - snapshots from Siesta Key

Good morning and happy Monday guys!  We did not mean to disappear at the start of the year!  I was still working on my (much talked about) work deadline, and Virginia decided the start of the year was the perfect time to come down with a nasty bug and to give up sleeping!  Little cutie just can't catch a break.  I finally wrapped everything up at work just in time to hop down to Florida to celebrate my mother in law's birthday.  It was so nice to sleep in and recharge our batteries to start out the new year!

I had never been to Siesta Key before and I can't say enough good things about the entire area!  We flew into Clearwater (Charlotte folks - cheap flights on Allegiant Air) and stopped for lunch in St. Pete before making our way down to Siesta Key for the weekend.  We had some really good food, tons of fresh grouper, and shrimp and some yummy key lime pie and mini donuts too.  We watched a gorgeous sunset on Friday and rented a boat to cruise the inter coastal on Saturday, which was wonderful. We went to Venice beach for lunch and even saw dolphins along our ride!  It was a really nice weekend and a wonderful way to celebrate a really special lady!

Hope everyone else had a nice weekend. I'm happy to be back here!
