My old Tampa roommate and co-worker Kim came over from Sarasota with her boys who are 4 and 5. Cooper so loves having new friends come play. He is still asking about my friend Anne's little boy Sam, and is so glad when they are 5 and under ...little "like me" he says. We really do spend a lot of time with kids 6 and older so he likes kids closer to his age.
Aimee's friend Lynn and her family came over too!
Lynn and I caught up on blog love and chatted over decorating, food and of course, more blogs :)
All my other friends called or texted me "too much traffic, meet you at the secret spot, going out on the river on my friends boat" in response to my invites for my big launch party. Then those texts turned into "LAUNCH SCRUBBED", "No Go", "Party at your house Sun if goes up?"
I was sad for my guests, both who traveled from Orlando and Sarasota to come. But we made the best of it and the kids had fun! Kim and I took the boys to the beach where I did impromptu photo shoot of her boys and then we went to Grills where I maintained by wine buzz with a nice fresh glass of Sangria and my favorite Caesar Salad with seared Tuna. Cooper ordered his "Psgetti" per usual also.
After getting up early for the Royal Wedding and celebrating the launch that never-was,
I was tired...it was a long day!
NASA is saying maybe Monday....but by then the Obama's are already gone but the hype will rise again I am sure.
