Beach to Beach

Bo and I have been so blessed to travel the past two weekends to two different beaches! 2 weeks ago I flew to Tampa, FL to meet Bo, who was working there, to spend Wednesday to Sunday with three of Bo's best college friends and their wives and girlfriends! I had never been to that part of Florida and I was in for a treat- thanks to such great hosts!
The first night Jimmy and Lauren St.Louis hosted dinner at their new house. As soon as those boys got together the reminiscing of the college days started so the girls got accquainted. The next day we hung out and then went out to eat at Bungalow- sooo good!! Here are all the couples:
Clint and Julie
Tyler and Lori

Jimmy and Lauren

Us!!The next day we headed to the beach. One thing that is different than the beaches I have been too is how wide the beach is- there is so much sand! We had great weather the whole time but it was HOT!! We ate at a restaurant on the beach before dragging all of our bags, coolers, etc. that you need for the beach- why is it that you need so much stuff??
The Dudes
After awhile we were all looking out at the bannana boats cruising the ocean and then everyone had the bright idea to ride one- so........

Im getting my nights before, but one night we hung out at Jimmy and Laurens house playing games, watching youtube videos, etc., and the next night we took a trolley to the Ybor district
and ate authentic greek food at Acropolus (probably spelled wrong- julie is an editor and I am not a good writer- oh no)

Belly Dancers at the Greek place!!!
I have so many fun memories from this trip and I am not the best writer so hopefullly the pictures will show all the fun we had! Thanks Jimmy, Lauren, Clint, and Julie for being such great hosts- hope to see ya'll soon !!

I headed back to school for three days and then we headed to Orange Beach with Jonathan and Kerri for another fun time at Jonathan's parents house on Ono Island!! Here are Mrs. Joni's two cute dogs, Bo with Butch-hilarious and Annie!

This Jeep is so awesome. Jonathan's dad bought it in 1974. I really wanted to ride in it so we went to the grocery store in it but soon realized there is not much room for things we bought but we made it- I just love it- and it's blue- how cool!

We took the boat out to an island to enjoy the HOT sun! There is nothing more wonderful than a boat ride- all your cares just fly away!

We took these pice while eating great hamburgers by Jonathan and realized they looked at date pics-haha!
Sugarland was playing at the Wharf on Friday night. We headed down there and listened to great music and danced!!

On Sat. we took the boat out to a hamburger dive called Pirates Cove. It was unbelievable. There are boats, people, kids, dogs everywhere! You order a hamburger and you wait and wait till some girl screams your name at the top of her lungs and then she lays that burger down and it was worth the wait!! This huge Bull Mastiff dog was just laying around- he is HUGE!!!
Jonathan and Kerri and the Davis'- thank you for so many great memories shared with ya'll!
