GOSH IT IS HOT......

Seriously, there is a thickness in the summer heat of Florida. Thankfully I am feeling good and breathing well but the humidity really thicken the air.

My dad was saying isn't it like this at home? No! So I looked up the dew point yesterday and it was 74% whereas our temperatures were exactly the same in California yesterday and the dew point was 45%. So when did they start calling it the dew point??

We went to Tarpon Springs last Sunday (Father's Day) where I was able to have a gyro at one of our favorite little restaurants there. We will definitely be going again before I go home! 

It was one busy first week here. I arrived on Saturday night. Mark arrived in Florida on the East coast on Monday and Adam/Tristen arrived on Tuesday. Because of a delay in their flight the timing of Mark driving over from Melbourne to Palm Harbor worked out that he was able to pick them up on his way.

We went out to eat at the The Lucky Dill which is a favorite awesome deli here along with my sister Darcy and her husband Bob.

On Wednesday evening Mark and I headed to Clearwater to have dinner with Adam and Tristen. They treated us to an anniversary dinner at a place called Columbia which is Florida's oldest restaurant since 1905. It was a lovely dining experience.

Mark set Adam and Tristen up at the Clearwater Marriott Suites on Sand Key. Of course they were here to see family and celebrate his grandpa's birthday but it was also a little mini vacation for them. Mark has a lot of Marriott points from traveling so we try to do some specials things for them when we can.

I set up a pizza party for my dad with the family on Thursday. It was really nice and of course the pizza was delicious. I brought snacks over to my sister's house for the party and she picked up a really good cake for our Dad.

On Friday we went over to The Lucky Dill again for sandwiches before Mark needed to head to the airport for his flight home. Adam & Tristen went home on Saturday evening but spent the afternoon with us before they headed to the airport. Things will quiet down now for me. It was like being at home and planning out each day with company....I'm exhausted!

I went for a walk this morning and will hopefully enjoy the pool this week. I believe that dad and I will be going to the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa tomorrow. Should be fun. He loves to go but doesn't drive himself there anymore so he hasn't been there since my last visit. 

Sorry if I haven't been around. It is just too hard to be on vacation and read blogs! I will eventually catch up at some point. Hope all is well with everyone and that your enjoying your weekend.
