We spent the day kayaking and having fun on the beach. I can say without hesitation that it was the best Mothers Day ever. We got thoroughly lost in our Kayak even though Lily swears she knew where to go. I will however give her credit for having a better sense of direction than me but she wasn't exactly correct. I handed my oars over to Rosie and let her have a paddle, that in itself was priceless. She and Lily have no concept of paddling in any kind of rhythm so we just sort of shifted positions in the water.
Following our boating for the day we ate lunch and spent the afternoon on the beach. The girls were in awe of the tropical fish and were trying so hard to catch them with their hands. No fish were harmed! I do believe that if fish could laugh they would have been hysterical at the lame efforts of Lily and Rose.
The car journey home was a peaceful one as 2 very tired girls make very little chatter.
We ate our favourite Chinese dinner and loathingly called it a night.
|My view, the back of 2 heads.|
|I just love that they will try anything.|
|Checking for fishes|
|Child looks like a dog swimming but actually this was how she fished. Not surprising that she didn't catch anything is it?|
|Lily takes a calmer approach to fishing|
|Ice cream and the beach go hand in hand|
|I just love driftwood.|
BUT seriously WALMART? You'd have to have been to one in Miami to understand why I find them so so nasty.
Lily made me an origami card, well 2 actually and they pop up and I love them.
Thank you for the best Mothers Day ever.
P.S. if you are visiting the Florida Keys don't miss Pennekamp there is so much to do and see there and it is a really short drive from Miami.
