Freestyle Friday: That Nap’s Not Happening

I guess if I had to not do something on my list of must-do items, the nap would probably be the first to go. It’s a good thing, because the nap isn’t happening this week. There are just not enough hours in the day or, as we learned yesterday, days in this trip to do all the things we like to do.

A lot of fun things have happened this week, which was foreshadowed when we followed this guy from Defuniak Springs all the way to Highway 98

We’ve been to The Sugar Shak, twice, Seagrove Village MarketCafe, twice, and Charlie’s Donut Truck, at least twice. We made it to the north side of Seaside, which is to say, Duckies, but we haven’t been on the beach side yet, so I haven’t asked the kids if they know who got married “right there”. We’ll do that before we leave.

As I mentioned Wednesday, Layne is a machine on her tricycle. Every where we go she just wants to ride her tricycle. What will she think when she she gets a bike and doesn’t have to pedal twelve times to go 10 feet? Jack has tried new things on his bike, like riding up and off of curbs. Layne, of course, had to do that also and ended up on the ground with her tricycle on top of her and her baby ejected from the trunk compartment of her three-wheeled cruiser. Quite the scene.

It’s been a lot of fun seeing how the kids play together. On a normal work/school day, when I get home is about the time they get hungry and grouchy and tired and whiny and really need some time to themselves, so moments like this don’t come along every day:


Lastly, I have still never NOT found money at the beach with the metal detector. You people just leave money around everywhere. Of course, we found a quarter yesterday that we dropped back in the sand, on accident, before we got back to our walkover. As I’m typing this, it’s still dark outside, but as soon as the day breaks just a little bit, I’m headed down to where the chairs and umbrellas were set up yesterday to see what treasures were left behind. Wish me luck! I know there is at least one quarter out there.

Yesterday's find. Not pictured, a quarter, 2 hairpins, and 12 tent stakes.

Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you again next week!

    1. Abso-million percent correct, Todd! One guy asked me if I ever found anything cool, Jack told him about the rusted lump of metal that we figured came from a wrecked pirate ship.
