St George Days 2 & 3

We have been having a great time on our vacation so far! And, we have been very active too! After the carriage bike riding and lighthouse hiking, we rented a kayak for 3 days. Now I'm sore on both ends! Ha! But, this is how the memories are made! We have been enjoying lots of sand play, pool time, and general adult relaxation during nap time. 

Harrison will tolerate the sand, but his favorite thing is a water hose.
He won't even think about getting in the ocean or pool, but he will 
go to town on the multiple hoses around here!

I can't get over how grown up Harrison looks! He's not even two yet!

We went in to Apalachicola on Monday and played around. Our favorite places 
to go are The Grady Market and The Owl Cafe. We did both and had a blast!
Emma and Harrison were having a game of checkers on the market patio.

Lunch at The Owl. Which turned into utter disaster about 14 minutes after arriving. Harrison wasn't into sitting and eating, Emma needed to go #2, etc. He was throwing crayons and ketchup, she was whining about the plain butter noodles she ordered. So I got to take one bite of my cilantro-jalapeno chicken salad before we had to leave. Maybe I can eat a whole meal in peace when they are 6.

Yes, they are so cute. However, they are devils in disguise.

Emma bought a pirate's treasure chest at the market and was very obsessed with it. 
She kept wanting to find treasure to put in it, lol!

After our "lunch" we walked on the Apalach River to look at the fishing boats and barges. 
Then, we decided to go down the street to a playground and get some energy out before
 heading back to the island.

A giant chair!

Baby jail!

So yesterday we rented a double kayak to take out in the ocean and bay for fishing and playing. Harrison and Emma were enamored with it. They were content to sit in it with the paddles and play. Jason took Emma out into the ocean for a short ride. She loved it!

During nap time, Jason and I went to the state park that's about 3 miles from our house. They have a boat launch, so we put her in and proceeded to kayak to an island to have a few beers and a small picnic. Then the wind started blowing at around 15 mph. And we had to paddle back against the current. Dude. I would suck at sculling. I kept counting to 100 then letting us take a break. It was about a mile back, but it felt like it took us SO LONG to get back! So we got back to the launch and I promptly popped a cold one and sat down.

Ha! My cocktail hour starts around 3 or 4 here. I accidentally bought a 12 pack of these 
mini beers. This is me showing you how small it actually is. This was actually taken on the 7 HOUR ride
 in when all hell broke loose and my MIL was driving us the last few miles. I told her 
I needed a bev STAT!

And here are some random pics: this is where I enjoy my morning coffee. Yeah dude.

Freaking BBQ shrimp. A rad recipe. You sop up those butter/garlic/lemon
 juices with the French bread. Day-um. It's so good.

Our house

The two little goombas being cute. Emma is wearing a consigned bikini that is too big, and Harrison is sporting his precious new Zucchini smocked suit with submarines on it. I love those jokers!

So that is what we have been up to! Internet and phone service has been spotty, so I've been reading a lot! I haven't been able to talk to my people, or check FB/Twitter/IG, but it's been good. I am hovering in a corner  working on this post-seems to be the best area in the house for internet connection.

We went and had major pool play today, so once we get into our other shenanigans, I'll catch you all up on that!


  1. Holy Awesome Vacation, Batman! Glad you are having a blast!
