Siesta Key + good friends = a perfect Friday

Last Friday, we went to Siesta Key.  It just got voted #1 beach in America and we hadn't been in a long time.  It was worth the drive, but not worth the walk from the parking lot to the water's edge.  I was pulling too much stuff.  It was hot, and sweaty Isaac wanted to be carried.  Paige dropped off her load and had to come back for him.  The way back to the car wasn't much fun either, and we didn't walk out where there are showers.  It IS a beautiful beach with powder soft sand and beautiful clear water and we met the Stevens and the Emerys there. 

The kids stayed in the shade for the majority of our first of 3 hours there. 

 This is Dylan, I love it - at one with the waves.
 It was cloudy for part of the day, which was actually really nice. 
On the way back we go 7-11 slurpies b/c of Lori's good idea.  Why don't they make white cherry at every one?  Isaac fell asleep with a red one in his lap.  Luckily, although sideways when I picked it up, it had hardly spilled and only dripped on his skin. 

and here's one from another beach day, 5/20.
We went to Indian Rocks Beach to possibly run into one of the fun families I met doing a photo session.  It was their last day though, so they had lots of things to do then went to the beach after we left.  It's always fun to have an excuse to make it to the beach though:)
