St. Augustine Beach

We just returned from another 4 day trip down to St. Augustine Beach. Seth, Kaycee and I played in the sand, sun and water; visited the Alligator Farm and shopped, shopped and more shopping. Seth didn't last long on the shopping, he was finished after the first trip with us girls. Steve worked during the day, but was ready to go out for dinner and fun each night. Dinner at Carrabba's Italian Grill was wonderful as usual and the kids enjoyed it as much as we do. Ripley's Believe It or Not was followed by shakes at Steak 'n Shake. They have the best Strawberry shake. Each night we went to the beach to enjoy the cool breeze and quietness you don't find during the day. After a few hours of playing in the water as the tide came in we were ready to shower and call it a night.
The laundry is piled half way up the wall in the laundry room, but will have to wait until tomorrow as a little storm that came through the day we left cleared the electronic control panel of my washing machine. Yes that new washer I had to get following the move due to mine being broke during the move. We have sand everywhere in the house and I tried to keep it in the laundry room, but it seems to be following us through out the house. I can't even get it out of my mouth and I have brushed my teeth so many times the toothbrush is trying to hide!!!
Still need to vacuum the vehicle out, no telling how much sand we have in there and we never once had to come from the beach to the vehicle as we were staying right there with an ocean view.
We had a blast and can't wait for the next trip. Only it will probably be a weekend trip as Kaycee starts to school August 7th. Here's a few of the 257 pictures we took.

Until next time. . . .Enjoy the summer, especially the time with your kids as they grow up way too fast.
