*We had a great time in FL last weekend. Friday, B's parents picked us up from the airport, we drove through old Jax, had lunch on the river, went to the pool, and had lunch with them and the 5 (bil, sil, 3 kids) at the beach club. We ate out on the porch overlooking the ocean and after dinner went in to the club to dance to the live band. The three kids loved the band and we probably danced for at least 45 minutes!!
*Sat we got up slowly, had a great breakfast, and went to the beach for most of the day. It was glorious, and my body was completely shocked by the sunshine! We went home and got ready for dinner at A1 Ale House in downtown St. Augustine. The wait was horrendous (especially while trying to entertain a 6 year old and 4 1/2 year old twins!). Dinner was great though.
*Sunday we went to church with the 5 (B's parents go to a different church and since we were staying with the 5, it was easier to go to their church) and then met his parents at the TPC Club at Sawgrass.
The clubhouse is brand new and gorgeous!! We ate out on the covered part of the porch (my shoulders were glad for that) and walked around the course after lunch. They are getting ready for the players which is going on May 7th through 10th, so everything looks so lush and green. Everyone loved their lunch- very casual yet very good.
*Today I picked up my graduation gown and hood for the ceremony next Thursday!! I'm going to look like I just stepped out of Hogwarts with this get-up on. It's got weird sleeves and the hood is just too comical!! Oh well, I'll wear it with pride knowing that all I have to do now is pass boards in June!!
*I finished 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' on the plane. It was a fascinating read and very engrossing. I wasn't thrilled with the last three pages, but other than that, I would highly recommend.
*Pulled out my suitcase for Spain today!! Only 16 days left until we leave, and I want to start putting things in the suitcase to start getting organized. I like to pack early (obviously!!) and am a huge overpacker, so this way I can put in everything I think I'll need and then have B help me edit!! (ANY packing advice would be greatly appreciated!!)
*Ordered my review book for my boards. I refuse to take it to Spain, but I'd like it to arrive before we leave.
