Bonita Beach Vacation.

Nick's parents got into town last Saturday! Sunday was a nice relaxing day at home; Nick cooked on the grill after we had a nasty storm come through. He made his delicious steak tips and grilled asparagus.
 Then he played guitar for us. He's pretty amazing!
On Wednesday we headed out to Lakeland to watch a Tigers game. We got to see Verlander pitch (which is always fun) and we had a great time out at the ballpark.
After the game we headed out to Bonita Springs, Florida for a 4 night stay on the Gulf Coast. We have amazing views from our balcony's and floor to ceiling windows of the inter coastal waterways.
Wednesday ended with this gorgeous full moon.

Thursday morning we started our day with laying out by the pool sipping on Strawberry Daiquiris.
Then Nick and I took a walk on the beach and I got some good shots.
It is so beautiful here! I love waking up to dolphins frolicking in the water and all the different birds flying by our window. I could get used to living so close to the water!
 
I waited upstairs to get a good shot of the sunset...
And let me tell you... it was worth the wait.

Friday was started a lot like Thursday, but with a Bloody Mary in my hand.
When we were done roasting in the sun, we headed up to get ready for dinner with some family (there were 12 of us). There is a really good restaurant right next to our resort called Flippers that we walked to. It was a really nice dinner outside by the water. I didn't take any pictures of the food (even though I really wanted to because it was so good) because I just didn't think it would be appropriate.
 
Once dinner was done all twelve of us headed up to our rooms to watch the Michigan game. It was very stressful and exciting; the Wolverines are moving on to the Elite 8!
 
Today we are all going out on Uncle Mitch and Aunt Ginger's boat to cruise around and do some fishing. We are just waiting for them to get here now. It should be a lot of fun!
