Had a beach reunion today with our fabulous pals, Adam and Tracy and their kids, Sophie, Ryan, and Nick.  Nick is new since the last time we'd seen the fam, and he is way cute. Toddling around and saying a few words with bright red hair.  Just adorable.

When he was napping, the older kids and the parents went for a walk while Nick's grandmother guarded him.  We jumped in the surf and looked at shells and stuff.

Mac became characteristically petulant at one point, just when I was trying to take a wonderful picture for posterity.

Things could be worse here in Bonita Bay, especially since temps at home are registering at -17.  Went to the beach yesterday, which Mac loved.

Shef and Dan went to a college hockey game while we were beaching because why not?  Why not go a few days without hockey?  Let's just not even try!
