On Wednesday we visited the Sarasota Architectural Salvage place where you can find lots of cool stuff! Dynamo and I hunted through the old print blocks to spell...
While we shopped Amy and Craig and her parents took a boat tour of the Bay. Then, we decided to meet up at the Ritz Carlton Sarasota for lunch to celebrate Dynamo's birthday! We had heard they had the best kept secret - an awesome burger!
We got a great table outside where you could see the boats and the water! It was a little chilly, but they had heaters!
These neat coasters were at each place setting! Who knew?
The bread came after having been baked in tin cans! And the cutting board had the recipe!
It was the best bread ever!
Yummy food and great company!
The waiter was awesome! He sang to Dynamo Happy Birthday in Spanish!
The desserts were delicious!
Even the squirrel thought the food was tasty!
We snapped a pic in the lobby of my Dad and Amy's Dad with Dynamo and Craig!
The hotel was decorated so pretty for Christmas!
We took some time to snap pics in front of the tree of mom and dad!
Mom and I...
It was a lovely birthday celebration for an amazing man! I'm so glad we could all be there to celebrate together!
After lunch Dynamo and I made a stop, and discovered a surprise in the car from my parents! Mini-Donuts from the little shop on Siesta!
Then we snapped some pics of the famous sailor statue!
Back at the house the boys enjoyed some Hardywood beer all the way from Virginia!
On Thanksgiving morning Dynamo and Charlie Boy went out for a run! Charlie enjoyed checking out the new scenery in the neighborhood!
Craig, Amy, and her parents arrived and Craig gave Dynamo his birthday present!
Then we all headed to the Sandbar restaurant on Anna Maria for a Thanksgiving dinner!
Dynamo's brother, Richie, and his girlfriend, Kat, sat at our end of the table!
It was a lovely day to eat on the beach and be thankful for the lovely healthy family we have!
After dinner we walked out onto the beach to get ready for the sunset! We played around a little!
We love our Amy!
Then, we had a mini photo session while all of us were there! My parents and us!
I love this pic of Craig and Dynamo!
The four boys altogether! Jeff, Craig, Richie, and Michael!
And the boys with their dad!
And the boys with their mom and dad!
We ended the dad with a Chieppa group shot!
What a lovely Thanksgiving together! We had a great week! We left to head back early Friday morning, which was Dynamo's real birthday! So, he got a donut with candles and another birthday song!
We hope your Thanksgiving holiday was as wonderful as ours!
