A Special Time

After dropping off my sister Carith on the 8th of February the boys and I headed home.  We were looking forward to some rest time for a few weeks before we headed to Florida for some family time.  We also knew it would feel a little quiet without her there.  Later that day we headed to the pool - now some background - our neighbors The Behrisch's have been anxiously waiting for their daughter Tanya and her 7 year old son Pascal to arrive and we had said hello and talked about getting the boys to hang out.  Well, the boys got together at the pool and their friendship and time together just blossomed from there.  After visiting with Pascal and his mom (by this time it was already time for dinner) we headed up to our home and Ronan commented that  "even though Carith left today we still had fun" and Dillon said "I had a really nice time today mom".

From that day on the boys were together every day.  The boys introduced Pascal to the art and fun of playing in the big waves at Mullet Beach and he was hooked.

Dillon has been working on his boogy boarding skills and caught a few nice waves on this day

Pascal also acquired his first boogy board and soon experienced the unending fun they provide

you could watch the boats all day

Pascal figured it out really quickly

such a sweet boy and a great playmate for Dillon and Ronan

the three muskateers

the amount of fun that these three beach bums had is beyond comprehension.  the laughter and smiles was endless and a complete joy for their moms (Tanya and myself) to watch.  thank you for this special time.
