A little bit of everything

On Thursday morning we got up early, went to the beach and played for a couple hours. When they got tired of that we went in search of the water park we had seen signs for. We found it but it wasn't a big hit. James HATES to be sprayed by water. He wont run thru sprinklers, he freaks out if you spray him with a water hose and he wont hardly play on the slip n slide, I have to turn the water on "little" for him to get on it! Needless to say, we didn't stay long at the "water park"!! We ate lunch instead.

After naps, back at the rotel, we went into Jacksonville just cruising around and decided to eat an early supper at Mellow Mushroom since Jon had to leave for church and I wouldn't have a car. That was a mistake. They weren't hungry and were incredibly hyper! They were the loudest, worst behaved children I honestly think they have EVER been. Don't let their cute little faces fool you.

I took the kids down to the pool for a bit before and after Jon left for church so that I wouldn't be stuck in the room with those hoodlums for very long before it was bed time. That was a huge success. First time I ever was in the pool by my self with them and they did great. The swimmies they had on were the key though. Much better than just the ones you put on their arms. They even swam around "by themselves" a little!

At least ya'll tried to have fun. Gotta give the parents credit for the effort- even if the beauties were not exactly in the mood- it's still a good thing to be out and about!

BTW , Cindi has been found! Mailing today.

Good question, Nelda!

Looks like you guys had fun! And I didn't teach them to be bad in restaurants...just in case I was to blame!
