Last weekend my family, along with my parents and Grandmother, took a trip down to Pensacola, Florida to visit my brother, who is in college at PCC. I was not too thrilled about taking another road trip so soon, but we knew this would be our last opportunity before making our big arctic move. We still had a lot of packing to do when we got back and a small going away party to say goodbye to all of our family and friends. Needless to say, our schedule was tight!
The one thing (other than saying goodbye to my brother) that I wanted to do while in Florida was visit the beach, but it rained on the only day we could go. I decided I would at least stick my toes in the water even if it was raining, but I could not make it to the shoreline before beach patrol came along with their air horn and flashing lights telling me to get off the beach. Apparently lightning had been sighted in the area (I saw no lightning!) so it was not safe to be on the beach.
Instead of a day at the beach, the men went to the Pensacola Naval Air Museum, while I stayed with the napping baby and did some computer work. My mom and grandmom didn’t want to go either, so they stayed behind with me and read their romance novels. If you are ever in Pensacola (not Pensacola Beach) there is a delicious Mexican Restaurant beside the Comfort Inn, unfortunately I forgot the name of it.
On Sunday we went to church with Bryant at the Pensacola Christian College campus church, and I think he might have been a little embarrassed by our fussy toddler during the service. Then, when we got back to Alabama Sunday night, Jonathan and I went to work packing our belongings. We have been going nonstop and it is exhausting us!
