It should come as no surprise that today was ANOTHER pool day…and it’s stretched into a beautiful Summer night…

Summer Night

This evening the boys got into a little pre-Fourth of July spirit…

The summer days have been pretty hot–a lot hotter than normal, it seems–so we’re spending a lot more time in the pool. Alex certainly has the right idea…

Lounging in the Pool

And Charlie is in HEAVEN…

I came home from work today and the boys wanted to hit the water! What a GREAT idea! The weather called for a chance of showers, so no worries there! I changed my clothes and we were off…

However, it is Florida in the Summer and a “chance of showers” can quickly change to “thunderstorm imminent”…

Thunderstorm

Anyway, it wasn’t too difficult dodging the storm. In fact, the storm actually split as it moved (much like the parting of the Red Sea) and we were able to shoot right down the middle and around the storm. We end-up taking a leisurely cruise down Black Creek before skirting the storm clouds on our way back to the marina.

Crusing

Funny. There was rain all around us, but we didn’t feel a drop!

This week the boys attended Vacation Bible School at Fruit Cove Baptist Church. WOW! I’ve never seen such a large attendance. In fact, they had a waiting list! Anyway, tonight’s celebration was very impressive and a lot of fun!

VBS Celebration

The boys had a good time this week, although Adam wasn’t all that excited to stand-up in front of everyone and sing! 😉

This evening I had the opportunity to hang out with Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker, Paul Posluszny! He’s a great guy! Paul retired from the Jags this year and his family are making Jax their home! It’ll be great seeing him around town!

Yesterday was the last day of school and Summer Vacation is officially underway! This is the fist sunny day we’ve had in almost two weeks and what better way to celebrate the gorgeous Florida weather and the de facto first day of Summer than a splash or two in the pool??

So, as has become a family tradition, Friday night is “Pizza and a Movie” night. Although mom joins us from time to time, it’s normally just the boys and me (mainly due to the movies we pick to watch, which typically involve super heroes–not mom’s thing).

Anyway, tonight is a typical night, with Marcos Pizza and the new “Black Panther” movie!

This afternoon, the boys and I went to the IMAX theater to see the new “Avengers: Infinity War” movie. Needless to say (if you’ve seen the movie, of course), the movie’s ending left us wondering “what the h…”, a sentiment especially reflected in the boys’ somewhat bewildered look…

Infinity War

Still, we can’t wait for the next installment!! (which is just the point 🙂 )

It was “free hat” night at the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp game tonight! We got here about a half-hour before the gates opened so we wouldn’t miss out! And we didn’t! Whoo-hoo!

Anyway, now we’re ready for some BASEBALL! And big pretzels, hotdogs, sno-cones, and cotton candy!!

Baseball Game

It was a good game and the Jax Shrimp beat the Pensacola Blue Wahoos 2-1, with John Norwood the only Shrimp putting points on the board with 2 home runs! After the game, we hung around for the Saturday Night Fireworks! What a great time!!

Well, we’re heading back home today, but before we go, we’re going to make a quick stop at Disney Hollywood Studios. We don’t plan on renewing our Disney Annual Passes next year because we want to do some other things, like Universal Studios, Sea World, etc., so wanted to make sure Adam gets to ride the “Tower of Terror,” which he’s been wanting to go one f-o-r-e-v-e-r!

But first: Pictures!

We had four Fast Passes for “Tower of Terror,” but nooo waaayy was Alex getting on there. So, Adam and the Birthday Girl rode it, while Dad and Alex went to one of Alex’s favorite attractions at Hollywood Studios, “The Frozen Sing-Along Celebration”. And Adam for all his bravado, still needs to hold Mom’s hand (or maybe it’s the other way around)…

And the ride went something like this…

Whew! Glad I didn’t ride it! I’ll just stick with the “Frozen” thing!! 😉
