Welcoming Warm Weather on a Wednesday

This day could not have been closer to perfection.  After waking up a little earlier than usual, Elijah and I joined our friends Janine and Lennon (and later, our new friend Jamie) for our first beach trip of the season.  While the boys played and bonded in the back seat...

...Janine and I smiled away, amazed by our growing sweeties.  And of course, chatted away about mommy things.

The beach greeted us with the blue skies and warm sunshine we've been longing for.  It wasn't long before we were all giggling and soaking up the day.

As the afternoon came around, the quiet beach became full of sun-seekers taking advantage of the gorgeous day.  Once our tummies started rumbling, we knew it was time to head off to our next destination.  The Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs seemed like the perfect place for our beach-bumming day.  We of course headed straight for the ice cream shop before lunch :)

Our little munchkins just loved watching the boats come in and out of the docks.

With full bellies and sleepy eyes, we headed home.  Needless to say, it wasn't long before they were conked out in the back seat...

Once we were home, Elijah and I cuddled up and enjoyed a nice long nap together (which happens very rarely these days).  Seeing the big smile on his face when he realized he was waking up next to Mommy was one of those moments that makes me so happy to be a mother.  

Today, I am thankful for friendship, motherhood, and my wonderful Florida sunshine that made today's joys possible :)
