Beachy Keen

Just as to be expected, my family and I had an absolutely fabulous time with our Moms on the Go friends at the South Beach Resort in Treasure Island.  Moms, dads and the kids look forward to our anniversary beach weekend each summer.

For another summer, the South Beach Resort graciously accommodated our large group by allowing us to take over their yard for our potluck breakfasts and dinners.  Without fail, this family-friendly resort helped make our beach weekend truly enjoyable.

This year, Allan and I choose to stay an extra night on the beach to soak an extra day of fun in the sun and relaxation.  Since every condo unit at the resort overlooks the Gulf, beautiful sunsets are included at no extra cost.  How’s that for relaxing?

Although storm clouds threatened our beach days, the cloud cover provided cooler weather.  With the clouds, we managed to avoid sunburns but fortunately, escaped any thunderstorms.  As another bonus, the storm front stirred up some waves for fun on boogie boards.  Riding the waves was quite a work-out!  My triceps muscles hurt!

On Friday evening, we walked to Sloppy Joes on the Beach for a sunset dinner.  A duo of female musicians played rock classics as the kids bopped around the dance floor.  Of course, Emmalynn and I jumped in and didn’t miss a beat.

At dinner, Allan and I passed on the Sloppy Joe’s infamous tower of 100 ounces of beer and opted for the margarita bowls.  Unfortunately, I slurped down one too many of these bowls, which meant no sunrise run for me on Saturday morning.

For the last evening on the beach, we hosted our annual luau dinner.  Sweet and Sassy Nicole baked delicious and adorable Hawaiian themed cupcakes.

After dinner, we posed for group photos and walked down to the beach for one last sunset stroll along the beach.

Such a great weekend!  I’m ready to return for our fourth anniversary.
