Reconnecting Navels

Grapefruit trees near the play area.
Fig trees along the walkway towards her zen deck/garden.
Orange and Tangerine trees within the deck, built around with planks of sweet smelling wood, built around the deck itself.

Plucking the fruit straight from their trees, eating the juicy fruit while seated on the deck, surrounded by all the luscious trees under the clear warm blue sky.

Hearing the laughter and gabbing of the children, reconnecting with each other.
Playing in the pool, sliding down the slide, running around along the garden, and near the area built enclosed for orchids.

Feeding the fruit to our little angels, as we too reconnect. But not just with our good friends, not just with ourselves either, but with our darling three boys and their darling son and daughter.
Relaxing and sipping coffee in the morning with tomato's and white Cheddar cheese for breakfast out in their backyard over looking the colors of the numerous floral garden that sits beyond their deck path.

Grilling sausages and slicing them up equipped with toothpicks for dipping into numerous sauces during lunch, and a few cold beers to go along with it, Green garlic stuffed olives too, yum!

Serious laughter amongst us adults.
Good friends getting together again, with children.

Music playing outside on their enclosed open screened in pool deck. Outdoor TV system on near playing am cartoons, so the children may dine with their breakfast out on the patio, just to the left of their outdoor fridge strictly stacked for the children, and a few beers, of course for us adults.

Watching the juices of the fresh fruit taste the tongues of our sons, the juice of fresh innocence and reality of natures growth as it cascades over their chin and down upon their belly buttons, as they stand shirtless in their Bermuda swim trunks, enjoying some reconnection with their parents.

Vacations are fabulous.

What a gorgeous post. Reading it and listening to the gulls is almost as good as taking a vacation.

Your words give us a bit of the magic you're enjoying. It sounds like a wonderful way to reconnect, enjoy the warmth, the time together. These are the grand days that never last long enough. All the best to you and your loved ones.


I will definitely post pics upon my return.
I'll stop by your blogs as well,..and I hope you all are enjoying yourselves!!

This morning was New York Style bagels, fresh crunchy onions, lox, tuna salad and more laughter.

I don't wanna leave tomorrow. But we must, and head to our families in West Palm Beach florida.

Now? we're near Tampa...about 40minutes away from Tampa.


I am thinking of you all!!!
