Alex and Laura visit + New Years

Alex and Laura came to Florida to visit us after Christmas this year. I picked them up from the airport on Monday December 29th, and they stayed through until Sunday January 4th. They stayed some with us and some with Grandma Alice and Grandpa Rick. Since I had to work for part of the week, it was nice that Grandma and Grandpa were nearby to entertain them and be with them.

On Tuesday, we went over to Grandpa and Grandma's to play and to exchange some gifts.

During the week, we had them over to our place too for some fun and games.

We heated up the hot tub once for everyone and some of us jumped in to the cold pool.

On New Years, Connor and Paige went over to Grandpa and Grandma's house to party with neighbors and to ring in the new year.

Connor and Paige stayed up late and watched a "3 Stooges" marathon.

Andrea and I went to our neighbor Tina and Rick's for a New Years party. A bunch of the ladies from Andrea's tennis team were there.

On Friday, we went to Old St. Augustine with Alex and Laura to walk around and have dinner at Harry's Seafood. Unfortunately our babysitter was sick, so Andrea had to stay home with the kids.

On Saturday we went out to Serenata Beach Club to enjoy the warmest and sunniest day of their visit.

We played at the beach for a while, but the water was very cool so we didn't do much swimming until we got to the pool. The pool was heated to 84 degrees, so it was just barely tolerable. We swam for quite a while and then went home.

On Sunday we had brunch at Cantina Laredo and then Uncle Alex and Aunt Laura surprised Paige and Connor with some very cute stuffed animals from the Disney store!

Alex and Laura just packed up and left a few minutes ago. I'm glad they were able to make it down to Florida to spend a week with us. The kids had fun playing with both of them and it was nice to catch up with them since we hadn't been able to visit much at the wedding. Laura's got more interviews for school soon and Alex is going back to work this next week, I hope they have a safe flight home!
