This is Sophie and her Daddy on the beach. The enormous body of water made her a little nervous when she first layed her eyes on it, but quickly warmed up to the ocean. She was running, splashing, and swimming by the end of the week.
Derek and Beth kept the girls for a night while Josh and I headed to Siesta Key. We got a hotel on the beach and were able to make it to my brother's restaurant in Sarasota for a date. It was a wonderful night alone and we are forever grateful to Beth for offering. We owe you big time!
My brother recently opened a restaurant in Sarasota. He used to work at Emeril's in New Orleans. He is an incredible chef and his place is fabulous. You have to check it out if you are ever in Sarasota. It's called "Derek's".
We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back again soon. We love you so much, Derek, Beth, and Jack.
