This time we brought the sitter. Our last visit was great, but since we added another ankle-biter it seemed prudent. She got the room with the big bed and we got the kicking squirming children. How does that happen? Regardless, it was still kind of awesome.
The beach!!! Then, lunch at O.C. White's (because it's what we always do), a little walking around downtown St. Augustine then we move into the hotel. After we're settled? More beach! Except the second time it was windy and cold so we ended up watching Netflix at the hotel. Did I mention the hotel had free wifi? Lifesaver.
In the evening we dumped the big kids on the sitter and took the baby with us back to downtown St. Augustine for dinner. We wandered around for an hour lamenting our poor planning skills until finally stumbling across La Pentola. And holy good god of yummy food, what a find! This place was magnificent. We sat in the little outdoor courtyard and practically licked our plates clean. If it weren't for the hostess knocking into the baby carriage and waking up Stephen halfway through our meal, it would have been perfect. It was still kind of awesome.
We woke up to rain and gloom, so after free breakfast at the hotel, we trekked out to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. I totally (wrongly) assumed it would be a dirty overpriced tourist trap. While it was (a little bit) overpriced, it was still kind of awesome.
p.s. Casey is supposed to start preschool tomorrow. Hold me.
