Siesta Key Beach.

We got to the beach today. Even got a great parking space! We had our choice of spots on the beach and set up a little farther back from the shore since the tide was coming in. Then it was sand castle time!!!!

HHH made a sand sculpture turtle. I made some star fish and guppies from the molds we got from Wall to Wall Mart. Oh, and I made a castle wall that said "I Love Will"

The kids had a good time. It was actually good that we got there early. Once it hit around 11am, the beach started getting really crowded! We packed up and left by 11:30 because we couldn't even see the water any more because so many people had camped out between us and the ocean. It was OK though. We had been watching a few clouds heading towards the beach and if it decided to spring shower on us, we didn't want to be out in the open.

All in all, it was a good time. Now to grill up a few steaks, enjoy a gluten free beer, and watch Wrestlemania on pay per view.

Sigh.............. the perfect Sunday.

What a nice day! I'm glad this happened for you!

What is it about Wrestlemania that attracts you? Seriously. I'm not judging, I'm curious.

PHINZ: It's kind of like male soap opera. Some of the story lines are ridiculous, some are funny some are serious but the guys are hot..... well some of them are.

I love Gulf beaches. So much nicer than the southern Atlantic ones.

FINN: The sand was so soft! My kids kept saying that someone put Moon Sand all over the beach!
