Vaca - Part IV - More Family & Friend (and a little sun)

So Thursday dawned a little better. We went over to the beach around 11:00 and the sun was trying to break through but only did for a few minutes at a time. We also spent a little time at the pool too but I couldn't really say it was a "sunny" day, just not rainy and a bit brighter.

Around 2:00 we headed over to Apollo Beach to try to visit H's former step-mom but learned from her son, who lived next door, that she was "up north" until November. Guess that's what happens when you try to surprise someone and they don't know you're coming. From there we headed over to H's sister Sharon's house. The plan was to meet Mike and Bo there later and all go out to dinner together. Bo was in the area on business, lucky for us!

Sharon got a new pup a couple months ago, Mr. Big. Supposedly he's a "man hater". He had obviously been misdiagnosed. He was a sweetie, so cute and loving, always licking and trying to give kisses.

This is Sharon's older dog, Carm. She's getting up there in years and has an OCD habit of loving on pillows. She just keeps nibbling on them for long periods of time.

Once Mike and Bo arrived we took a few minutes to take some pictures to commemorate the visit.

The siblings, H, Sharon and Bo.

Then the sibs with the in-law (that would be me)

Then Sharon and Mike

Then Mike and H (old time buddies)

We had a lovely dinner and enjoyed catching up and talking about what's going on in everyone's life.

Bo had to head back to Orlando right after dinner but the rest of us went back to Sharon's house to visit a little longer and then headed back to the beach around 10:00.

The forecast for Friday was supposed to be a bit better. When I woke up Friday morning and looked out the bedroom window and saw this

I figured that was a good sign that we would finally able to plan a little trip I had been looking forward to all week.

It's good to see friends and family, isn't it? Nice pictures of all of you.

And that rainbow is beautiful.

It was nice Lynilu. We are far from family and don't see them often so it was really nice to hang out and catch up.
