The Fourth of July weekend is winding down and what better way to bring it to a close than to take the kids for a cruise up the St John’s River?

I slow the boat as we approach the Buckman Bridge. It’s always fun watching the cars and trucks speeding across and listening to the hum of their wheels as we travel under the bridge. Of course, if Adam had his way, it’d all be a blur as we flew under the bridge at top-speed!

Once we crossed into the Jacksonville Landing area, we docked the boat and spent some time at Friendship Park. I really love this city!

One the way back to the marina, Katy got to take a turn at the wheel! Kam opted-out, as she prefers being ferried across the river than being the person actually doing the ferrying.

Today we visiting the Jacksonville Museum of Science and History. When I was a kid, this was known as “The Children’s Museum” and it’s still got a lot of exhibits and activities that cater to kids. One of my favorite exhibits was this dinosaur fossil that used to be positioned right at the entrance to the museum, but now has been relegated to some interior alcove.

I must admit that it seemed much, much bigger when I was a kid…

After our tour of the museum, we spent some time relaxing at Friendship Park, while enjoying the Jacksonville skyline.
