Busy day...

We had quite a busy day today!  Garet got his work done early, so we had most of the day to do what we wanted!  We decided to head to the beach!  It is so different being so close - we are less than an hour from the beach - so we packed up and headed out! 

The weather was perfect!  It's amazing because yesterday we were huddled in the house because of a tornado warning/watch!  It was hot and there was a breeze - so nice!

Colin, once again, hated the water!  I don't know if it is just intimidating because it is so big, or if it is just so loud with the waves.  I'm sure he'll learn to love it =)

We walked around the town, then we headed to Barefoot Landing.  There are tons of stores here around a lake.  It's a really nice place to walk around (and shop, if you like that sort of thing!)  There is a really long bridge across the bridge.  I had to get a picture of the guys.

The sign says "Warning Alligators & Wildlife May Bite".  Great.  Thanks for that warning.

And Colin kept his shades on!  And got many comments! 

After that we headed back home and had dinner at a local restaurant.  Turns out it is kind of a fancy place at night.  During the day: sandwiches, at night: steak.  We definitely weren't dressed the part - but, being a small town and all, there were only a couple other tables in there... so we stayed.
(wow those walls look bright!)

And now, I am sitting on the couch relaxing.  Garet is in the recliner... Suzi is asleep on the rug... Colin is asleep in his crib...
I am so thankful today.
