Fun in the sun

Last evening we ate at the Hard Rock Cafe. It was a bit of an ordeal since we got a late start. The food was good though, so we didn't complain. The boys have especially been enjoying going back to the beach after dark. They grab their nets, buckets, and flashlights and go crabbing in the shallow water. They are really getting the hang of it and getting some good sized crabs.

Today we headed out to the beach right after breakfast. The kids enjoyed using their skim boards, body boards, and rafts.

Jacob found a cute little seahorse in a piece of seaweed which is now in a bucket on our back balcony. Tomorrow he'll probably get back to where he belongs.

Maimie has not enjoyed the beach as much as the rest of us, but is doing okay. Today went better than yesterday. She has been taking her afternoon naps the past couple of days on a towel in the shade of the umbrella and loving it.

The condo is fantastic. The washer and dryer in the kitchen have been such a convenience. Tonight we made a delicious spaghetti dinner and ate in. After some ice cream, we were all wiped out and sunburned and decided to watch a DVD.

Glad you are enjoying your vacation. Maimie will probably want to take her naps outside at home now!! Sounds like you have been enjoying some fun eating places too. Have you cooked any of the crabs the kids are finding? With the full moon this week it should really be a cool experience on the beach at night! Enjoy!!
