It should come as no surprise that today was ANOTHER pool day…and it’s stretched into a beautiful Summer night…

Summer Night

This evening the boys got into a little pre-Fourth of July spirit…

The summer days have been pretty hot–a lot hotter than normal, it seems–so we’re spending a lot more time in the pool. Alex certainly has the right idea…

And Charlie is in HEAVEN…

I came home from work today and the boys wanted to hit the water! What a GREAT idea! The weather called for a chance of showers, so no worries there! I changed my clothes and we were off…

However, it is Florida in the Summer and a “chance of showers” can quickly change to “thunderstorm imminent”…

Anyway, it wasn’t too difficult dodging the storm. In fact, the storm actually split as it moved (much like the parting of the Red Sea) and we were able to shoot right down the middle and around the storm. We end-up taking a leisurely cruise down Black Creek before skirting the storm clouds on our way back to the marina.

Crusing

Funny. There was rain all around us, but we didn’t feel a drop!

This week the boys attended Vacation Bible School at Fruit Cove Baptist Church. WOW! I’ve never seen such a large attendance. In fact, they had a waiting list! Anyway, tonight’s celebration was very impressive and a lot of fun!

The boys had a good time this week, although Adam wasn’t all that excited to stand-up in front of everyone and sing! 😉

So, we slept-in a little this morning, then went downstairs for some breakfast. It was a bright and sunny day and we were all looking forward to spending the day in the water. It was probably about 10:00 a.m., when we walked out on the resort’s private beach. The concession folks already had our loungers and umbrellas up, so we set-up camp and got busy r-e-l-a-x-i-n-g…

Set-up

We had a magnificent view…

We lounged on the beach and swam until the late afternoon…

Today we begin our 10-day summer vacation. We arrived this afternoon at our resort in Palm Beach Shores. After unpacking and grabbing a quick bite to eat at the Cabana, we strolled out to the beach. I arranged for some chairs and umbrellas that should be up and ready for us to spend the next few days soaking-up some sun!

Summer is almost here, so time for some cooler (as in temperature) haircuts. Adam normally keeps his hair short, but Alex likes his hair longer (this time it was just about to his shoulders). Anyway, surprisingly, Alex opted for a nice conservative haircut, while Adam went with a flattop.

Handsome boys! And Adam looks a little like Howie Long.

Yesterday was the boys’ last day of school and Sumer Vacation has officially started. I had some work to do in SW Florida, so Cindy and the boys were able to join me. As usual, while I worked, they soaked-up some sun. And since we were only a few miles from Lido Key, well…

At the beach

The boys had a great time in the water…and Alex even got in a little body surfing!
