long weekends mean...

Photobucket
Photobucket
...impromptu bbq's.
(hmmm, how many guys does it take...?:)
Photobucket
...relishing naples in all it's sandy goodness with people we love, family i adore, and a bartender that makes the best slushy lemonade this mouth has ever tasted.
Photobucket
we sat around, soaked up some harmful rays, we documented, we drank, we dug in the sand, took fast jet ski rides out into the deep blue sea...then dove in and floated while pondering life's little blessings. we were almost rescued by the sea and tow, but we waved em' on, letting them know we were okay-just enjoying the water.
Photobucket
we said over and over again how much fun we were having. i heard random strangers muttering what a beautiful day it was while our kids played on the beach for hours, took kayak rides, ran after birds,
played football, napped on the beach...
i took it all in knowing that we are giving our kids a little gift. memories they will surely hold onto...atleast a few from today. i'm tired and and it's late so i could easily go on and on in my sensitive and euphoric state about what a wonderful weekend it has been thus far, but i won't...because it's late and i'm tired :)
long weekends mean that i can play around with my editing tools longer than i should...
