Here's something you may not know about me...I can only be obsessed with one thing at a time and lately it has been t.v. and not computer. But, I'm getting a little bored with t.v. so I think it is time to move on.
We just got back from our Florida vacation! Well not just just but a couple of weeks ago just. I have decided that the thing I do not like about vacation is getting ready to leave. The cleaning, packing, paying bills ahead of time, doing EVERYTHING a week in advance (this is just not how I operate)having to take the dog to puppy prison, oil changes, tire rotations, no money havin'...it's exhausting!
I have also decided that I feel really bad for anyone who has to drive more than 8 hours to get to the beach. We usually go to a different part of Florida so the scenery was a little different this time but I have to say...going through Alabama with their no paved road having selves was more interesting then going straight across Florida. Something you may not know about Florida...If you are not at the beach or in a tourist town there is a whole lot of NOTHING. Oh, and this has nothing to do with anything but I would never live in or around Atlanta. I hate hate hate hate hate hate it. I don't like driving OR riding through that traffic. My head hurts just thinking about it. Anyway...
Let me show some pictures...First from St. Augustine...This is where I picked to visit because I had thought a few times that it would be fun to vacation there but since we were so close I could just go see it...
We went to the Mission of Nombre De Dios Shrine of Our Lady Of La Leche. This is the only place I bought anything for myself. What did I buy you ask? Well let me tell you. You guys, they had a gift shop and in that gift shop was a container of water BUT not just any water...it was of the Holy version. So yes, I purchased a plastic flask full of Holy Water. You just don't know how excited I was/am. I got a couple of drops on my hand and it didn't burn so I'm thinking that was a good sign. Anyway, pictures...
This squirrel was posing so I took a picture.
This is the actual Mission.
I made the girls pose with a Saint.
Not sure what this building was...I was just taking pictures
So then we went to St. George's Row and did some shopping.
We saw the oldest schoolhouse but they charged admission to actually go inside and since it was the size of my bathroom I was pretty sure I wasn't going to pay someone to let me look at the inside four walls when I could look at the outside walls all I wanted to without paying a dime.
A cool fountain. I told the girls to make the face but Jordan was the only one who would play.
Ok. So then we went to the Lightner Museum
And saw a dead guy
And sniffed armpits
Flirted with pasty white guys
Posed like Super Hero's (I told the girls to pose or something so all of our pictures wouldn't look the same and this is what I got...nevermind)
And walked over a bridge
So it was really really hot and we were getting tired so after we paid $50 for 5 slices of pizza and 5 waters we decided to wrap it up at this fortress thingy..I can't remember the name. It was a place where people fought and it was made of rocks and was kinda stinky and if you ever go save your money...not really interesting at all.
Done and Over It
Gah that took me an hour to post...I'll put up more pictures tomorrow...or Monday. :)
