We spent several hours crusin’ around the Gulf.
We also had a little stowaway on board!
Sadie loves the boat! We think she thinks she’s the skipper because she likes to be up front where she can feel the breeze.
When she’s not guiding the boat, she prefers to spend her time on our laps.
The weather was really warm and luckily the Gulf was a perfect 84 degrees which made swimming extra enjoyable!
Even Sadie got in on the action… in her life jacket of course. Safety first!
My dad did a great job as captain and took us all over the place.
On our boat ride we saw some very active dolphins. One even lept far enought out of the water that we could see its entire body. It was really neat!
Eventually the sun started taking its toll on us and we headed home for a late lunch.
While on the boat we snacked on pretzels, sugar snap peas and apples, but we were ready for something more substantial.
While my mom made BBQ chicken, I ate a bunch of chips and guacamole. I was practically full by the time I sat down to lunch. :/
Still, that didn’t stop me from having a slice of the peach coffee cake for dessert.
After lunch, my mom, sister and I headed to the grocery store and Old Navy where they were having a $1 flip flop sale.
I wanted to pick up a bunch of flip flops to place in a basket at my wedding as “dancing shoes” for the women who wear heels and want to slip into something more comfortable at our reception. Unfortunately they were completely sold out of all their flip flops! Apparently Floridians like their flops!
When we got home, we took a sunset boat ride. Now we’re about to sit down to a late dinner.
I leave you with this hysterical picture of Sadie on the boat today:
Doesn’t she look like she was poisoned or something??? She’s so dramatic. 😉
I’m off to spend more quality time with the fam! We’re going to watch It’s Complicated tonight. I hope it’s a good one. We really enjoyed The Blind Side last night, so I hope we get lucky again!
Question of the Evening
Do you prefer lakes or oceans?
