Summer at The Villages

We have been settled at Peace River for so long that we have started to grow roots there.  It has been a great place to grow some roots and yet we have still looked forward to traveling again.  We considered heading out to travel this spring but decided to stay put for just a bit longer.  To give us some sort of a compromise between traveling and staying put we decided to go to The Villages for the summer.  

The Villages is the place we visited Rich and Donna last summer.  We fell in love with it during our short stay here with them.  There is pickleball everywhere in The Villages.  Beyond the great pickleball, there are tons of other activities to do here.  It is a great way to have a lot of options while staying in one place.  We rented a place for the summer so we could have plenty of time to soak up the fun there.  

We were up and ready to head out before I am normally even out of my PJ's this morning, which says a bit about how excited we were to get to our summer spot.  We had a nice drive up, passing right by Aric on the way.  We were tickled pink with the house and the neighborhood we will be at for the next few months.  I think the outside space will be our favorite space when we are at the house.  Ava seems to agree so far! 

Since Aric is so close by, we also managed to get him to come and spend the night with us.  We are hoping he will visit us a lot while we are here!  We have plenty of room for him and the other kids so we hope to get visits from all of them.  We are looking forward to many good memories this summer!
