Today, Cindy has her “Big Business Launch” for Rodan and Fields, so what better excuse can there be for the boys and I to take out the boat. This time, we brought Charlie along!

Charlie Underway

This was his first time on the water for Charlie and considering the way he’s always itching to dive into the pool, I was a little concerned that he’d leap over the side at the first opportunity, but he was great…and really seemed to enjoy the water. And the boys loved having him along…

We’re were heading up to Jacksonville and stopped for lunch outside the Naval Air Rework Facility at Jacksonville Naval Air Station. My dad actually worked here for a bit after he retired from the Navy.


After lunch, Adam took the wheel for a bit, while Alex and I enjoyed the sunshine.

Finally, we arrive in Jacksonville. Charlie seems to be having the time of his life!

We took our time coming back, skirting the coastline, and by the time we turned back for the marina, the boys were OUT! And Charlie and I just watched the approaching Marina.

Tonight we took the boys to Jacksonville Memorial Stadium to see their FIRST Harlem Globetrotters show. When I was a kid, I saw the Globetrotters, led by the late George “Meadowlark” Lemon and star dribbler Fred “Curly” Neal, play in this very same stadium; it was pretty cool coming back today with my boys.


Today the team is captained by “Big Easy” Lofton and “Scooter” Christensen has taken the reins as the team’s showman dribbler. Although the names have changed, they were still the same fun family entertainment they always were!

We had a blast! After the game, and all the way back to the car, the boys were dribbling their souvenir basketballs and mimicking the moves of Big Easy and the team. I did get them to stand still for one picture. Well, sort of… 😉

We’re taking a break this weekend and spending a couple of days at the Hilton Grand Vacations Resort in Orlando. Right down the road from Disney, we kicked-off the day at the Magic Kingdom.

This picture of Mom and Adam on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train sums-up the day pretty well (one of these days, Cindy’s gonna lose he phone! 😛 )
