Sunshine, Joy and God’s Wonders! Days 2 & 3

I really should have taken better notes on what we did each day, but I’ll try to make the best of it all!  :)

Thursday:  Cris and Christina brought some of their “new favorite” board games, and after a breakfast of French Toast (homemade French Bread makes the best!), we played Welcome to the Dungeon over coffee.  I normally am not a fan of games with “creepy names”, lol.  But this game was fun, and you had to be really strategic in your moves and thought process… besides I won the two games we played, so I enjoyed it quite a bit!

Morning coffee and game spot…

We met up for a late lunch at The Burger Joint in Downtown Melbourne and pretty much enjoyed some yummy burgers!

 That evening, back at home we played with the pups, just chilled together and had something yummy for dinner.. I have no memory of what it was! lol

Friday:  Boating with the Pups!!!  I had been wanting to do this for such a long time!  We love taking Stormie out on the river, finding a nice little sandbar play area and letting her splash around.  Ever since we knew that Lyra would be coming, I had wanted to take them both out and see how much fun they would have together.

More so, Christina has never seen our area by boat, and I was looking forward to sharing so much with her about where we live. :)

The forecast said rain….sigh… but we don’t usually let that take us down… rain is expected, and not so bad … usually, lol.  It’s the lightening you want to avoid. ;)  We got pretty lucky and skirted most of the storms, but we did get one cold hard rain that passed over eventually, and ended up having such a fun time!

We were not disappointed with sights to see… we saw dolphins frolicking, a manatee, and a blowfish that we were able to observe for a few minutes in a Frisbee. ;)

We wanted to walk around Sampson’s Island, but the mosquitoes ran us off quickly!  …P7240102

Let’s get out of here! …P7240101

After we were plenty worn out, we headed to Tijuana Flats for dinner, as Cris was really craving it and they just don’t have ‘em over in Texas!
