Earlier this month, a group of girlfriends and I celebrated turning 40 this year with a trip to Siesta Key Beach! We have been friends since high school, and it was fun to all get together after all these years.  A few of us have gone on Spring Break back in high school, a few of us have traveled on small trips since high school, but all 6 of us have not traveled together like this before!  Only one we were missing was Jess, poor thing isn't a fan of flying. 
 Us at the airport bar, waiting on Elizabeth to arrive on a different airline.
 Elizabeth arrived!  Time to head to the beach house.
We stopped for lunch on the way, and since this small little island does not believe in coconut rum I had to try a new drink.  Vodka/Sodas!  I'm a fan.  The bartender gave us a little treat, Pina Colada's!  They were delicious.
 Headed to the liquor store to get the necessities.  A small down pour didn't stop us!
To the beach at last!  Siesta Key Beach on a Thursday afternoon.  Hardly anyone was there, but the rain might've scared some people off.  It was still beautiful!
 We took a selfie with my camera, set it up on the cooler.  Not too bad!
 The short walk to the beach house, we took turns carrying the cooler.  Well, some of us! lol
 After dinner, went to the famous "beach club" from the Siesta Key show on MTV.  It was a very young crowd, and we definitely felt 40!
Friday morning, the other two friends came a little later.  They were sipping mimosas waiting on their delayed flight.
 We went to the sun garden for breakfast, very good, and the mimosas were delicious!
The day before, we bought visors at one of the stores as a joke.  Christy wears visors, and we told her absolutely do not wear that on the beach.  Well, she did.  So we bought some cheapie ones as a joke!
 Another selfie photo from the cooler!  It cut off the ocean, but it's still cute!
This night was crazy, after drinking my new found love of Vodka all day on the beach, I was spent!  We were home and in bed by like 11pm!  That's 40 for ya!
The next day was much much better, drank lots of water!  This was us crammed in the back of Lauren's rental car to get some ice for our coolers.
Last day on the beach!
I had these sunglasses made for all of us, on the other side it has each of our names.
 Last night before dinner, waiting for the Frog Hop to pick us up!
 I tried gator at dinner, it wasn't bad very chewy.
 Elizabeth and I on the frogger.
 After dinner went to the daiquiri deck, where they have every kind of daiquiri imagineable. 
After dinner, we stopped at one place to have a drink.  But then, Lauren wanted to get some Advil because her sunburn was hurting so badly.
This my friends, is what a bunch of 40 year olds do on there last night in Florida.  Fall asleep on the couch watching Saturday Night Live.  Christy and I were sitting at the table still drinking!
As we came in from outside, a small lizard got in and I was scared to death it would come in my room!  So Christy snapped this and it was hilarious!
Mimosa's at the airport, waiting on our flight. 

We had a great time, and I can't wait to do it again!  All six of us in another state was insane how it all worked out.  We have trouble meeting for dinner, but so glad it all came together.  Siesta Key was beautiful, and a great time celebrating our 40th's!
