Chris, Abby, and Max came to visit Florida this October. Their visit overlapped quite a bit with Abby and Genie's visit, so most of our family didn't get to see them until the second weekend they were in town. I stopped by on Sunday, October 15th, to hang out with them at Grandpa and Grandma's house. The rest of our crew didn't get to see them until they came by our house on Thursday evening to watch the Chief's game with us. Friday evening they brought all their stuff and stayed at our house until they left on Sunday.
It was an enjoyable visit for everyone and it was especially special to hang out with Max now that he's eight and his personality is starting to really show. My favorite part of their trip was on Saturday morning when I noticed he was up before everyone else. I took him with Millie on a golf cart ride around the neighborhood and we stopped by the park for some outdoor goofing.
Saturday was a beach day and our St. Louis visitors dipped their toes in the ocean and then we spent quite a while at the pool. Max loved the little slides and eventually he built up his confidence and braved the big yellow slide. Once he tried it, of course, he had the biggest smile on his face and went again and again. Andrea, Connor, and Paige stopped by and we'd planned to eat at the club, however the wait was over and hour so we went to Anejo instead.
In the evening we went to Whits for custard together and then chilled out at the house until bedtime.
Sunday was a short day together as they had to leave for the airport at 11. Thankfully the flights home were easy and we're happy that their visit was trouble free and that we had beautiful cool weather through the time they were here.
