You can always go downtown

This morning greeted me with a baby screaming like he caught Santa and with loads of unfinished homework due at noon. Awesome. The only thing that would make this better was if it was actually Christmas morning. Soon. Instead of camping out in the library yesterday, we went down to St. Augustine for the day to begin Christmas shopping. The library was closed for the holiday any how, so I took that as a telltale sign to do the irresponsible thing. Live a little, right?
Cramming after a night day of shenanigans- bottle in hand and Mickey on the screen. Hoorah!

We spent the beautiful day in the historic downtown of St. Augustine. I almost didn't even mind that I dressed for 60 degree weather and it ended up being 75. Almost. It was a bit toasty, especially trying to tame the wild monkey that had taken up residence on my hip for most of the day.
Thank goodness for daddy's shoulders, Austin loves his new pilot seat.
We started our day with some amazing popsicles from a cute little shop called The Hyppo. This place had the strangest flavors, Mexican Hot Chocolate, for instance. I ended up getting Peanut Butter Pie and was not disappointed. We also may or may not have ended the day with a second.
We walked up, down and around St. George Street, then shopped a bit. Every year the city puts up a huge Christmas tree in the center, complete with lights and wreaths and all sorts of festive fun- we can't wait to go back and take some of Austin's first Christmas pictures! For now we settle for silly pictures with this beer can bear. Baby noms on the left, beer on the right. Atta boy, babe.
Back to the (home) work grind. Cheers!


  1. Sounds like a fun homework break :)

  2. Oh i only it were Christmas morning! Would make those wake up calls that much sweeter!
