Busy Awesome Day

We got up super early to meet the "boys" at the condo they are all staying at...me in my pj's so I could sleep on the couch until the girls woke up. The "boys" were heading off on a day of deep sea fishing on the Sea Spirit II.

On the "girls" side of the day, once everyone got up we all headed to the beach. I drove. My car. All by myself. I have never driven in Florida before...I was quite proud of myself.

After awhile of being on the beach, Chris called to tell us that we should be able to see their boat...and we could! It was funny trying to get everyone to see it...it was quite far away.

Lyz trying to point the boat out (by saying it was just to the left of the three wispy clouds):

So we all (Grandma Franny, Joni, Toni, Alix, Lyz, Avery, Delaney and I) piled into one car to drive to the dock to welcome them back.

Here they are!

Ignore the first guy then it is:Mike, Matt, Chris and Jenn.

Jenn loves to fish when she is playing Animal Crossings. Her favorite fish to catch is the Red Snapper, and when you catch it the game says Snappity Snap Snap. Jenn was able to catch a real one today. Sadly it was too small to keep. She did get a picture with it, but on a disposable camera that I haven't had a chance to develop them yet. I didn't trust my camera on the boat!

Here is everyone with their catch:

Jenn caught 1.5 sharks (One broke the line as it was being pulled onto the boat), a red snapper, 2 sea bass and a lane snapper. Only the shark and lane snapper were keepers:

We then headed back to the beach...now the car also had Jenn riding in it!! Let me tell you, Delaney loves the beach:

After quick showers and dinner Lyz, Avery, Jenn and I headed to Fan Fest...a way to promote the Daytona 500. It was a little small, but we still had fun, especially Avery. They had a kids zone with lots of bouncy things:

It was cute.
We also got to meet some of the Budweiser Clydesdale's:

And the Chik-Fil-A cow:

We stopped for ice cream on the way back to the condo...it was yummy.

Tomorrow our plans are beach (duh) and dinner at Ruths Chris...our favorite place to eat in the whole wide world!!

Nice catch, Jenn! I would have been out there with the "boys" too. I even get a FL fishing license every time we go down there.
