Today the boys got a clean bill of health from their dentist. So, to celebrate, we walked across the street to the Moondog Pie House for a New York Style pepperoni pizza!

Ready for Pizza!

It’s was still a little chilly out and the forecast was calling for scattered showers, but that didn’t stop the boys and I from taking to the water for the afternoon.

Heading into Jax

As we approached the Acosta Bridge, we noticed the railroad bridge (officially the FEC Strauss Trunnion Bascule Bridge) was down due to a train crossing, so we entered the city via the small boat span, which is always fun. There’s plenty of room, but it always looks like it’s going to be a tight fit…

Anyway, our destination today was the Exchange Club Park Island under the Matthews Bridge. There’s a little dock there, some picnic areas, and some trails to explore.

This was our first time visiting the island, so it was pretty exciting walking across the gangway…

Gangway to Exchange Club Island Park

And once there, we enjoyed some of the snacks we brought, then started exploring. There was a lagoon in the middle of the island and even some wildlife. In the middle, there was a marker that was pretty beat-up, but we could still make out the words.

The trails were marked with little arrows (so you won’t get lost, I guess), and in the middle, there was a marker that was pretty beat-up, but we could still make out the words.

Soon, the air started to get a little misty, so we decided to head home. If it started raining too badly, we could always tie-up under a bridge on the way.

Thanks for visiting

And Alex took us home…

Okay, so Adam is a big fan of Portuguese soccer star, Cristiano Ronaldo. Cindy took the boys to get haircuts this week and this is what Adam got…

I just don’t get the deal with soccer. I remember when I was growing up, my favorite athlete was Pittsburg Steeler Running Back, Franco Harris. A real man playing a real man’s game. How could a kid not look up to someone like that, right?

But geez, soccer! You can’t even pick-up the ball with your hands! What’s up with that???
