Family playdate!

by monicasjungle

Last February when Magglio was only a few months old, we made plans with my cousin Jason and his wife JoAnna and their two kids to meet up in Florida. Mind you, this was before we had even moved to Miami! JoAnna’s parents own a place in Ft. Lauderdale, and JoAnna promised me that when they came to visit them the following winter that we would arrainge a playdate.

Fast forward to one year later:

We had lunch at a great outdoors restaurant and then went walking along the boardwalk by the water.  Eventually we made it around to a children’s play area, and all of the kids had a great time. 

(we mom’s had fun, too!)

Then we went to the beach and sunk our toes in the sand.  Such a great feeling!  Finally we made our way back to the car and said our goodbyes.  The kids were pooped and the adults were too. 

It was such a beaufitul day!  And such beautiful company….like my cousin JoAnna…..

She is such a stunning woman and a great mom.  Jason – good job!!

So to my family reading this – any Matteo’s – we really need to make the effort to get together more often.  The whole time I was on the beach with Jason and Clara and Carson and Magglio I kept thinking about our family reunions at Grandma and Grandpa’s.  It’s not too late to plan something for this summer!   One can dream…..
