We just enjoyed a nice, albeit too short visit with my parents. They arrived Thursday afternoon and left very early this morning. Despite the brevity it was great seeing them. Unfortunately for them Florida's temperatures and humidity soared making it a rough stay for outdoor activities, but that's the risk with Summer visits here. Have to get them back during our cooler seasons!!!
In March my mother's brother Bill bought a house just around the corner from us and became a neighbor. We were thrilled when he and his dog Tarzan moved in. With my parents planning a car trip and bringing my niece Clara with them, they opted to stay with Bill in his new home. So we all got to enjoy their company and his hospitality during their stay.

With the heat we made a trip to New Smyrna Beach to enjoy some time outside with the cooler ocean breeze making it more bearable. We spent time under the cabana by the beach walk and watched as Kevin helped Hannah fly her kite, and Uncle Bill helped Lauren search for seashells.
|Hannah was able to get some decent air time with her kite and catching the ocean breezes|

We enjoyed lunch at the Barracuda Restaurant before heading home.

The kids enjoyed his pool while we lounged on the patio.
Then all too quickly it was off to our last night out together for a meal and to celebrate Father's Day.

So long for now mom and dad, looking forward to your next visit. We love you.
