FLORIDA TRIP DAY THREE
Well the boys slept well....once they finally fell asleep! Tom & I were pretty tired last night so we set the sleep timer on the TV and fell asleep - the boys were watching Madagascar. At 10:38 I was awoken by a little voice .... "gwama?" Scared the life out of me! I sat up straight in bed and heard Caleb say "why did the TV turn off?" What?? Why is he still awake? Like a good grandma, I reset the sleep timer, rolled over and fell back to sleep. Good thing too because they were up and ready for the day at 7:30 am. Yikes! I think mommy forget to tell them to sleep late!
After a quick bite of breakfast we headed to the beach. It was about 8:30. They had so much fun jumping waves, swimming, finding shells, singing "Deck the Halls", scaring birds (sorry jogging lady!) and digging in the sand. We finally convinced them to leave the beach about noon - they did but only because they were hungry! They had a bath (Caleb) and a shower (Luke) and then we headed back to the beach. We finally came back to the room about 3:30 and they took a bath (together). If you've ever seen the movie "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" you'll remember the scene where John Candy leaves the bathroom a disaster for the Steve Martin......well that scene makes our bathroom look GOOD!
We then left for dinner. We always have breakfast and lunch in the room and go out for dinner. So we were trying to choose which seafood restaurant to go to and Caleb keeps repeating "I hate seafood, I hate seafood..." Yeah, we get it Caleb, they'll have other things on the menu. We went to the Lobster Shanty...it's a nice place with linen table cloths and napkins (do I hear you snickering???). Let's just say kids will be kids and leave it at that, okay??
Currently they are on the beach with Tom looking for crabs. And I am enjoying a little down time. *Smile*
Here are some pics from today.
Here is Caleb digging in the sand (above) and Luke getting ready for a swim (below).
Here's proof for mommy that they did get bathed!! And notice how they've covered their "tenders"!
Here they are after dinner.
