We didn't take very many photos during our Spring Break trip. I think that means we were living right in the midst of the moment and forgot about our phones for a second. Or it means we were obsessed with surfing while we had waves to catch. Either way, both are perfectly acceptable reasons to under-document the trip. It was a super simple week spent in Cocoa Beach, about four hours northeast of us. With temperatures in the 50's all week, we were chilly and made honest use of the hot tub.
We spend very little of our free time away from a water source. The rest of the photos in this post tell the weekend stories of our first Spring in Florida.
Maisy found some flowers in the dunes. Gave one to her daddio.
It's a cold morning for coffee on the beach.
Cocoa Beach has so much more space to kick a ball around (compared to Naples beach.)
Who needs a soccer ball when you've got a volleyball😂
Kisses for sissy.
Aunt Mary and Fran doing some popsicle promo for me.
Maisy is meditating (for approximately 43 seconds) while we wait for a friend.
Every once in awhile we get on the water without our kids. Good thing, because this was the windiest day in the history of wind.
Our Maisy girl took it upon herself to play her ukulele and make a tip jar at farmers market. She pulled in tons of cash; I guess the older crowd can't resist a cute little girl with an instrument.
Enjoying a brewski before Shovels and Rope!!!
Face paint win.
Clam Pass is our favorite place to float!
If there's a board, there's a Graham. Skimming is his/Alastair's new craze.
Someone got a new surf board. She's a beauty!
Alastair has been working on his sketching/painting skills.
Feliz Cinco De Mayo!
The Peace River has millions of prehistoric shark teeth in its banks; you just have to sift your brains out to get them. We came back with an enormous bounty!
Here's one tiny one. We did get a coveted megladon too!
Normally, it is not very safe to swim in FL rivers, but the water was super low and gators are far less likely to be around. We did see one, though; he was only about 18" long.
That time we dyed everyones hair. Maisy's ended up pink/purple.
Fran got rose gold with purple highlights.
Alastair got green and yellow.
Sweet cousin Selah came out to visit. What a blast the girls had getting to play with her every day! Nonni found a spa specifically catering to little girls, complete with robes, sparkling juice, and tutus.
Selah's first paddleboarding experience. She's hooked!
Cousins and pizza on the beach.
