We haven't been on a family vacation since May of last year and even then, it wasn't anything too special - a couple of days in the North Georgia mountains. Don't get me wrong, I love the mountains more than anything but I've been desperately wanting to go to the ocean - something other than the Georgia coastline for years.
We decided to go to Saint Augustine, FL - both beautiful ocean scenary and secluded beaches as well as wonderful, interesting history.
The trip down there was a bit of a downer - my poor Brookie got carsick five times :( She was fine, however, as soon as we got to the condo.
Brooke LOVES the beach - she wanted to spend the whole trip there. She loved splashing in the water, building sand castles, and collecting sea shells with Mommy.
Sunday - spent at the beach that afternoon/evening.
Monday - we took Brooke to the Alligator Farm. She got to see several alligators, different kinds of tropical birds, monkey's, and other animals. Her favorite part was the playground area for the kids.
Tuesday - we went to Marineland where Brooke got to see the dolphins. She absolutely enjoyed watching them do tricks and swim around her.
Wednesday - we went spent the day in downtown Saint Augustine, FL walking around and went to Potter's Wax Museum.
Thursday - spent whole day at the beach :) Left that night so Brooke would sleep and wouldn't get carsick. *Success*
