When Grandma came to Florida


We went to the beautiful Amelia Island



and stayed on the beach for the weekend.
You can't beat having the beach right out your back door.


We practically had the place to ourselves.


And this tidepool was perfect for Avery.








A great weekend, it was hard to leave.


When Grandma came to Florida
we went to the Alligator Farm


and watched a man get into a pit with 37 alligators and feed them.


Rats.


We even got to feed the alligators ourselves
(but not rats).


It was pretty awesome.


When Grandma came to Florida
we drove around the beautiful and historic St Augustine.

(this is the only picture my mom did not take herself - although we did drive across this bridge)

Then spent the afternoon playing at Crescent Beach,
which turns out to be my most favorite beach of all.




When Grandma came to Florida
we took a water taxi ride downtown,


ate lunch on the river,
and played at the Science Museum.


When Grandma came to Florida
we (of course) took her to our favorite local beaches so the kids could show off their skills.




When Grandma came to Florida
we had one AMAZING week!!

Love you mom, thanks for coming
(and thanks for the pics)
: )
