Welcome our newest member of the Gumula family! John is a proud owner of a new Toyota Tacoma! His pathfinder hasn't been very reliable these days and it had over 200,000 miles plus John could always use a truck so it was just time. It's a sharp looking truck if you ask me! Kids love it too ;)

We started our long weekend down in Cape Haze visiting Grandma and Papa. We spent the 4th poolside and later watched fireworks at our friends Jeremy and Danielle's house. The kids had fun with Jayce and were up late watching a movie together.
We had some more pool time on Saturday before celebrating Papa's birthday! We had ribeye's for dinner with salad and baked beans and then gluten free cupcakes for desert :) Yum! We left after Papa opened our present as we wanted to get to Lido Key before it got too late. We were meeting up with the Fluker's for the rest of the weekend to watch the 30th annual Super Boat Grand Prix on Sunday.
Connor and Addie were pretty excited to be staying the night with Finn and Blaise. We stayed with them and their parents, Raif and Sybil, at their Papa and Jomama's house. They had a great house just a block from the beach. Sunday morning would be hectic with traffic coming onto the island for the races so we were happy to get there and beat all the commotion. Raif got up extra early to setup our tent and we still didn't get front row. It was tent city!!
Sybil and I squeezed in a 5 mile run before the madness ensued...over the bridge and back!
We had a blast at the beach all day. It looked like rain for most of the races but it never came down on us and even cleared up by the afternoon.
We had a really great weekend. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend as well. I have a lot of photos between Sybil and I. Click here to view them all!

We have had some seriously hot days lately! Very thankful for our pool on the weekends :)
Tom, an old friend of ours from Orlando, stopped by with his kids on their way to go to a Tampa Bay Rays game a couple weekends ago. He invited us to tag along and we did! I was excited as this was my very first Rays game and they won! They beat the Houston Astros 8 - 0.
|Addie's first Rays game too...and her first taste of cotton candy!|
|Connor, Andrew and Ava - I think he was trying to put his arm around her (not hit her face :p)|
|Addie adored Ava!|
They ended up staying the night with us so Addie and Connor had their first sleepover! Ava slept in Addie's room on an air mattress and Andrew bunked with Connor. They were up super late and loved every minute of it.
