John and I and some of my closest friends headed to Anna Maria Island for a long weekend back in September. It was our second time going as a group, turning this into an annual event! We stayed at the same house that we found a couple of years ago. It isn't right on the beach but it has its own pool and is only a couple of streets away from the water. We had pretty decent weather and just spent our time eating, drinking and relaxing with friends. It was a much needed break from work.
The kiddos were in heaven back home. BeBe and Grandpa had first shift, then Grandma and Papa came and they even had time with Aunt Nancy along the way. They were spoiled of course and hardly even noticed we were gone ;)
