We leave tomorrow morning :(
It has been the perfect vacation in every way. We will be back. For now we are heading north. My Aunt Tina passed away yesterday. She has been battling lung cancer for three years. I am thankful she is no longer suffering but I am heartbroken for our family. Last year we lost another of my mom's sisters, also to lung cancer. The year before that our grandmother. Cancer is a scary thing. If you smoke, please quit. I don't think it's really hit me just yet. In a few days we will be in PA with the rest of my mom's family and I am sure then it will all hit like a ton of bricks.
On a lighter note, have I told you how much I love it here?? The kids love it too. So much space to run around, fresh air, great food. It's peaceful and I love not having an agenda or anything to do. It's been so relaxing and I just love that.
We went back to the Guana River State Park for a little run. I fell within the first half mile of our 5 mile run. I tripped over a tree root. My knee is scraped but I'm fine. It was traumatic though because the entire rest of the run I was focused on the ground while I heard lots of rustling in the bushes. It was hard to focus. It was just plain hard. The path is sandy and if you've ever run in sand well then you know how that goes. Poor Brian was maneuvering the double jogger over the roots, branches, sand and narrow trails. It was tough work! We saw countless armadillos. Oh my goodness, they're so cute!! I couldn't get a shot of their little face, but trust me when I say they're adorable!!
We went to St. Augustine for dinner.
Beach. Ate. Napped. Ate.
