The week before school starts, I always try to fill the days with fun activities that we can't do during the week once school starts. So, we did the Navarre playground and splashpad our first day. We packed a picnic lunch, ate under a pavilion during a thunderstorm and fed the ducks that were taking shelter there along with us.
One mommy suggested having the kids all leaving, have a get together. So we combined wine and ice cream. At one point there were 15 kids in the pool. We learned really quick you can't combine a warm, humid Florida night with containers of ice cream and expect it to last for very long. Better in our stomachs than melted in the trash.
A few of the kids, after it started getting dark. It was funny, after it was almost pitch black, I remembered there as a pool light, and flipped it on. The kids were crazy!! They flocked to it, stuck on the pool wall like frogs all touching and staring at the light.
Quiet Water beach Saturday, wrapped up our fun week. On our way out through Gulf Breeze I'd been eyeing this sea turtle float hanging outside a gas station. What a cool mom would I be, if I stopped unexpectedly and got the giant turtle? And made a neat find, in a tiny bottle of salt with lime, made specially for beer. WOW, yes Robin I got you one too.
