Sometimes I forget how awesome living in Florida can be. I need days like yesterday to remind me how lucky we are to live here. Carly had a birthday (shout hurray) and we went to the St. George Island to celebrate. Part of the drive is along a coastal highway. Its one of the top ten most scenic highways in the US. Lucky us! At some points you're only 15 feet away from the bay! Cory kept freaking out and saying, "Stop looking out the window and watch the road! You're going to drive us into the beach!" But I couldn't help myself. And sometimes there are bears! We didn't see any, but we kept a close eye out. Only in the panhandle.
We packed up the grill and Jesse made us hamburgers. It was so good. Sooo good. My eyes got a little bigger than my stomach, and after the first bite I told Jesse he should make the rest of the patties, cause they were delish. Then I couldn't eat a single bite more once I finished the first one. Sorry Jesse...but they were so good!
Cupcakes would have melted, so we had M&M cookies from Publix instead. I'd say it was an even trade.
After lunch we hit the beach. And we hit it hard. Cory really wanted to dig a hole, but that required way too much movement. And that would have been a little counter productive in my book.
|He's going to regret it 20 years from now when every picture has him making the "I feel pretty" face. It will be his cross to bear.|
We ended the day with icecream Which you had to climb up stairs for. So not fair.
Jesse and Tayna were impressively good at applying sunscreen. Like, they were all over that. Cory and I could have stepped up that game a lot. I did okay on my face and shoulders, but missed the entire back of my legs. I never see those so I guess I forgot about them.
We ended up in Publix at 10:00 that night to stock up on Aloe Vera. The backs of my legs are like lobster tails. And we came up with a minor case of sun poisoning...we have got to get out more.
