Mommy, Do Your Blogger Friends

Wonder Where You Have Been?
Me:  I guess I need to let them know what we have been doing don't I?
CiCi and GinGin:  Yeah and be sure and show them pictures of some stuff.
I have been reading all of your blogs, and have been keeping up with all of you.  We have been on vacation and when we came home we have been playing catch up.
We went to the beautiful beach of Navarre Florida.  Our condo was beautiful and best of all for David, within walking distance of the fishing pier.  David literally fished from can to can't.  He was out there when they opened at 5AM, came in for a break around one or two and then would go back out again around six and stay until around nine.  And get this---he didn't catch anything. Nothing. Nada.  Even though nobody was catching anything, he was not in the least bit deterred or disappointed.  He enjoyed himself immensely. Apparently it is just as much about the anticipation and the act of fishing as it is about catching the fish.  Some people were catching Spanish Mackerel, Blue Mackerel, Lady Fish..and I saw pictures of Pompano.  I had my heart set on grilling fresh fish, but it didn't happen.

[CiCi and GinGin:  This is us with our Daddy.  He is just back from fishing, had taken a bath and is taking a nap while our Mommy gets dressed.  He took our Mommy out to eat. That fishing stuff must be really tiring.]
The things I did were: ( and not necessarily in this order) eat/drink, sleep, read and  hang out at the beach/pool.  Oh and I did some shopping at a few antique malls and I went to a flea market.  I'll post pictures later.

CiCi and Gin are so cute snuggled up with their daddy. So sorry the fish weren't biting.

You didn't want to eat those fish anyway. They were probably full of oils!!

I cannot BELIEVE you were "this close" to me and the girls and you didn't let us know. Of course if this was a romantic getaway ... Glad ya'll had a wonderful time--this morning when I opened the door at La Condo I was greeted with COOL air! Yay!
