Hurray! Kids!

Grandma Marlys, this is for you! Thanks for sharing your grandchildren with us!!! 

Matthew, who turned three on Saturday,

and his big brother, Andrew, who is five,

brought their parents, Kevin and Julie, to Florida this past week. They had been up in Orlando doing the Disney thing and convinced their parents it would be fun to visit the old folks down in Venice for the weekend. We were able to spend the day with them out at Paul's place, better known as Caspersen Beach.

Paul spends hours out on the beach. He showed Andrew how to sift for shark teeth.

Kevin got into the activity as well.

Julie took her boys swimming in the warm gulf waters. It was a beautiful day.

Matthew became one with the sand. Those boys put miles on that beach. It was fun to watch.

We gathered at Mary and Jim's for a birthday dinner that evening. Right before he blew out his candles, Matthew said he was wishing for a kitten.

And, then, while he was eating his cake he said, "This is the most wonderful birthday I ever had!"

Thanks for making our day, Matthew and Andrew and Kevin and Julie!!!  We were so happy to be able to share Matthew's birthday with your family. Come back!!!!!
