Fun in the Sun!

Happy 27th Birthday, Mike!

Oh, how I love a day on the beach. We couldn't have asked for a better day to celebrate Mike's birthday. The weather was beautiful and we had a lot of friends there to share it with us. You should have seen our setup...a big tent, volleyball, coolers, food, cornhole, a flip cup table, paddle ball, and testicle toss (I believe blongo ball is the politically correct name for it). There were about 20 of us in all and it was a blast. Thanks to all of our great friends who came down to share it with us.

Do you have knottie/nestie friends? Well, I do. Take a look at the above pic. That's me in the blue hat in the center with my Mike to the left of me (the guy in the back). Ok, now see that girl to the right of me...well that is Lani (love2b_mrst) and her husband, Chad, is the guy in the front. Then the skinny mini prego girl in the pink bikini...that is Kristina (mrs.ragazza19) and her husband, Bobby, is the in the middle. The three of us met on the WCF (west coast Florida) message board on the when we were all planning our weddings (like a year ago or so). From there, we met in person at a local GTG (get together)...gotta spell out the acronyms for our non-knottie/nesties. And it's all downhill from there. No really, they are awesome friends and it's pretty great to know we now have new friends for life. If you don't have some of these knottie/nestie friends, then I highly recommend you get some. :-)

After the beach, back to the condos, showers and off to dinner and then to a beach bar. This is where the night started to get a little loud and rowdy (keep in mind, we had been drinking since about 10 a.m. and it was now 8 p.m.). We made it through dinner with minimal infractions...good thing we sat outside on the deck. Off to Mickey Quinn's...

Irish car bombs, anyone? This picture just exudes trouble, now doesn't it?

And this is where Mike had to call it a night. His birthday was a success and he was done for. Somehow he managed to still look put together in the picture below, although it was merely minutes before we had to head back to the condo. So with that, we will say goodnight!
