Florida Christmas {2017}

We headed down to Sarasota this year to celebrate Christmas in Florida with Greg’s family. We had an amazing five days filled with family, fun, and sun.

The kids spent a lot of time in and on the water. It was way too cold for me to even think about getting in. The boys caught several fish from the dock and I paddle boarded with the manatees!

we went to the ringling today to check out a new park. the art museum was free today so we checked that out too on the way out. the entire place was really cool and we’ll definitely be back when it’s a little cooler out.

we had such a great trip, it was a much needed weekend away.

how was your long weekend?

Untitled

thursday night, we had greg’s holiday party at enzo’s on the lake. our dinner was amazing and it was a really fun night.

Untitled

we woke up on friday to a cool and crisp day. too bad it didn’t stay long.

Untitled

after work on friday, we headed down to sarasota!

Untitled

after staying up late on friday and getting up early on saturday, these two were a barrel of fun on our run. kenley didn’t feel well which meant they both took a much needed, very long nap.

Untitled

everyone was much happier after nap time!

Untitled

crazy hair on our boat ride.

Untitled

the girls.

Untitled

it was a perfect day for a boat ride.

Untitled

afterwards, we headed down to the beach to make our sandman! we should have brought a hat with us.

Untitled

while i miss the cold sometimes, this isn’t so bad.

Untitled

we got fancied up for dinner to celebrate grammy’s birthday!

Untitled

gorgeous lights on st. armands circle.

we headed home on sunday for a day of errands and getting stuff done around the house. we got so much done but we were exhausted by the time our heads hit the pillows.

how was your weekend?!

Untitled

we headed down to sarasota for the long weekend to spend some time at grammy’s house! we got up on saturday morning and went down to the dock for some fishing.

Untitled

crosby didn’t quite have the necessary attention span for fishing, but kenley enjoyed it!

Untitled

we hit up the mote marine lab & aquarium on saturday, which was super fun. this guy was by far my favorite. more photos to come!

Untitled

we fished again before dinner and greg caught one with the mickey mouse fishing pole!

Untitled

we went out for a family run on sunday morning and ended up doing four miles. it was brutal between pushing the kids and the heat and humidity. i ran the bridge and greg took the kids to the top, where kenley accidentally dropped her rubber fish into the ocean…hence the saddest face ever.

Untitled

we headed to the beach after our run fully expecting to cool off in the water…until we saw this sign. needless to say our beach trip was short-lived.

Untitled

ready for the party to get started!

Untitled

the kids had such a great time playing with their second cousins. we all had a great time catching up with family.

Untitled

sunday sunset over the water.

Untitled

our last walk to starbucks of the weekend before it was time to head home. it was back to the grind once we got home, running errands and packing lunches.

we had such a fun long weekend away. it was much needed!
how was your long weekend?

happy labor day!

i took friday off and after not doing so hot with my runs all week, i hopped on the treadmill for a hilly three mile interval workout. great way to start the long weekend!

Untitled

greg and i packed up the car and picked the kids up from school just before nap time to head south. thanks florida weather for making it an enjoyable ride.

after swimming, we took the kayak out. it was short lived, but still fun.

Untitled

the kids did some fishing. also short lived. 

Untitled

crosby and i went out for starbucks on saturday morning and got to see some trucks around town. cars in hand, watching trucks, and getting pushed around in the stroller made him a happy camper.

Untitled

we took the boat out on saturday morning to try to beat a little bit of the heat.

Untitled

thankful for the clouds.

Untitled

looking for dolphins!

Untitled

after nap storms called for a movie on the couch.

Untitled

we had a few visitors at the dock on saturday after all the rain.

it was crazy to see them that close.

Untitled

i tackled that bridge twice during my six mile run on sunday morning. my legs were definitely feeling it.

Untitled

it sure was a pretty run as the sun was coming up, but i missed my running buddies!

Untitled

a little beach time before heading home. the water felt amazing.

Untitled

on the way home, we hit up the rays game and it worked out perfectly that they were playing the mets!

Untitled

poor kenley needs a new mets shirt!

Untitled

kenley kept asking if mr. met was going to be at the game and it was hard explaining that he probably wouldn’t be there since it was an away game for the mets. she was so excited to see him when we got there!

Untitled

ashley & britton met us at the game so it was great to hang out with them.

***

we had a great weekend away at grammy’s house, but we were very sad that grammy wasn’t there! it’s hard to believe summer is coming to an end and school is starting in two short weeks.

how was your weekend?
