Their Summer Vacation might be over, but Summer is still in full-swing! And after a grueling first day of school, it’s time to relax Florida style!

Pool Pool

Of course, the boys can’t go in the pool without their faithful companion…actually, no one can go in the pool without making room for Charlie.

They played for hours! It’s a wonder there was any water left in the pool at all.

The sun is supposed to be out tomorrow, too, so I guess we’ll be doing this all over agin. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it. 😉

So, Jess and the grandkids are here for a week’s vacation! This afternoon, we needed to get out of the house, so we headed to up the road to Veteran’s Park!

But first, for some reason, we have to DAB (whatever that is)…

DAP DAB

With so many kids to carry, it’s a good thing Dad was there to help out with transportation!

Anyway, there are plenty of things for the kids to do…

Like SPIN…

Today, the boys took Nana to Fernandina Beach for a little wave-romping and boogie-boarding. While Adam did most of the wave work…

Alex explored the beach for shells, as evidenced by the sand half-dollar he’s holding…

The weekend’s here and Cindy is at a scrapbooking event, so me and the boys are hitting the water!

Boys on the water The old man and the sea

We didn’t really have a destination in mind today, so we headed up the St John’s to the Jacksonville Landing, then back down to Fleming Island and home again.

It was great to just get away for the day, and leave the week behind!

…and no one is happier than Charlie!

The boys invited their friend and neighbor Dominick to join them in the water today. These kids play great together and have loads of fun playing baseball, hockey, Star Wars, video games, etc. so on…

It’s a crisp October morning. The boys are in school. A perfect day for a little Mom and Dad time on the water…

Off-Duty

Part of the reason for today’s voyage (other than just some alone time) is to provide a little “Boating 101” to Cindy. So, we spend a couple of hours with navigation and docking before we head over to Whitey’s Fish Camp for lunch.

Cindy drives the boat Cindy ties the boat

Great job, and not as easy as it looks. It’s just like parallel parking only the road is moving, too!

Cindy docks the boat

Lesson over! Now, it’s off to Whitey’s and some great catfish!!

The boys have something new to play with today. They’re called “Wubbles”; large bubble balls, that could more accurately be described as “Boobies”…

So here are the twins playing with, well, the twins… 😉

Charlie LOVES the pool! When the boys start to put on their swimming trunks he’s at the door twitching like a kid in church that has to go to the bathroom! When the gate finally opens, watch out!

Sure it’s just a bunch of couch cushions and pillows and blankets, but to them it’s Fort Apache, The Alamo, The Batcave, or whatever their 5-year-old minds can imagine…
