realized I have had good intentions to post but have been a little out of control and just winging along. We headed to Sarasota on the fourth. It happened in a funny and typical way… I woke up Wednesday (pre-4th) and thought we should go to Sarasota for the weekend. Z’s aunt and uncle live there and I decided it was alright to leave Walter at home alone. Through a series of phone calls we found out it would be alright for us to go and headed out for the weekend on Saturday morning. Sarasota is a couple of hours from Orlando and can be reached by the Sunshine Skyway which is an incredibly tall bridge over Tampa Bay that makes Z nervous to drive over. We had a nice low key restful weekend shopping and hanging out at the beach in the rain walking up and down Lido key. We walked to St Armands circle in the rain before the boat races and had breakfast sitting at the tiny counter in the tiny Blue Dolphin Cafe.
