I mentioned, yesterday, that we got to the beach condo at night, were barely here before we left again, and got back late at night and went straight to bed.
Well, we woke up to a less-than-desirable view. It wasn’t horrible, but all we could see were palm trees. As in, the biggest part of the palm trees were completely blocking our view. So we called the front desk and they were very helpful in finding us another, higher room. The picture I showed at the end of yesterday’s post is the view we now have – and we are loving it!
We took a couple photos on the balcony yesterday morning…
After moving rooms and getting ready and taking the photos, we went to lunch at Cracker Barrel. This is a treat, as we don’t have a Cracker Barrel at home. It was delicious!
The next stop was Bass Pro Shops!
Sadie made fast friends with the fish!
(she was cracking me up — crazy kid!)
She and Claire enjoyed watching the fish while Wes looked (and dreamed) around the store!
After Bass Pro Shops, we were ready to go back to the condo and be lazy a little! I blogged a little, read a little, then woke up just in time to witness (and photograph) this:
We got ready again and went across the street to the Village for dinner at Roberto’s:
When dinner was finished, we went and listening to a little live Christmas music. Kids didn’t love it because it was jazz, and I guess just not their style. But I thought it was nice. And Sadie got to sit on Santa’s lap and chat with him for a bit:
Wes had been coughing and sneezing pretty badly all day, and Claire said Sadie had coughed a lot the night before, so we had to make a trip to CVS after leaving the Village. We hung out watching Christmas movies — Home Alone 3 and Elf — when we got back to the condo.
Unfortunately Sadie kept saying her stomach was hurting really bad. I assumed it was from drinking lots of coke and eating candy and pizza. But I’m not so sure. We all went to bed…Sadie was on the couch, right outside my bedroom. About 45 minutes after we went to bed I heard her throwing up. And that continued pretty much every hour for the whole night. 😦
She seems to be okay right now, so I am hoping everyone is well enough to enjoy some more activities today. We have a lot planned, and I want the kids to feel good enough to have fun with it all.
