Anthony’s home for spring break!
That means that he is doing lots of surfing.
Since Sue and Karl weren’t able to come for their annual Christmas visit, they came for a week’s visit as well. With Karl’s recent broken leg, we convinced them to actually take an airplane instead of spending 12 hours driving in the car each way. Since they flew into Orlando, they only had to spend 2 hours in the car each way :).
We spent lots of time soaking in the Florida sunshine in the backyard.
We had a cold snap for two days and were able to enjoy a cozy fire one evening.
We spent the evenings playing games together and watching a few movies.
I did take Sue and Karl to the two 55+ Adult Communities (Dell Webb and Cascades at World Golf Village) in the hopes of convincing them to move to Florida. Although Sue and I found a house that we really liked at Cascades, it’s going to take some convincing to get Karl on board with a major move. We’d love it if they were closer so that we could spend more time together and help them more as they need it, but it’s out of our hands. Time will tell what they decide!
We are grateful to have had Anthony, Sue and Karl with us for a while. Thanks for coming to JAX, family!
