Well I’m back! And with some changes to my blogs look thanks to my boyfriend/tech team! I’m still working on updating things because a lot had changed in my life and my blog doesn’t quite reflect that yet. However, I couldn’t put off blogging forever especially when I have so much fun stuff to share!
My Aunt Jen’s family and friends have been vacationing in Boca Grande on the west coast of Florida for 14 years now and I have the pleasure of joining them here for my third summer this year! It’s an awesome little island where everyone gets around on golf carts and just relaxes all day! We got in last night and have already done so much!
This morning I took a leisurely run, notice the sign.
My “running partner” was up late working on the blog so would not wake up for a run but he woke right up for breakfast!
Sword fighting with sticks. Boys will be boys.
We went to lunch at Loose Caboose and I got some looks while trying to snap photos.
Someone insisted on having their homemade ice cream before having lunch.
Aunt Jen and I shared the Boca Grande Wrap (fried fish, black beans & rice) and it was as amazing as I remembered!
After spending the afternoon “playing tennis” a.k.a. swinging at the air, napping and playing Apples to Apples we went to dinner with our rather large group of 43 people at Sister’s, I forgot to snap a photo of the yummy mushroom pizza and greek salad but I got a picture of dessert!
After dinner I was sporting my trendy Build-A-Bear Workshop pet carrier filled with super hero toys.
Rob & I
My Josie Wosie & I! I love her!
She’s a model.
And a sand artist.
She inspired me!
And…what I’ve been up to on my hiatus.
So I was gone for a little while. You missed John David’s Avenger Themed 5th Birthday Party, a long day of babysitting and going home after being gone for a whole month!
I made all the food for John David’s party and of course gave them Avenger names, like Black Widow’s Kick Butt Cookie Dough Dip!
I also did “something else” for his party…any guesses?
I wore some normal clothes as well- luckily! I don’t know who that suit is flattering on but it wasn’t me!

We also accidentally discover Aldridge Gardens while trying to find a park by the movie theatre between the double feature we saw!
John David loved it!
Especially when we found the fairy houses! Apparently he “has been going to school to learn how to find fairy houses.” I’m glad we achieved a life goal while I babysat.
We also had some talks about health that went like this. John David: Grace, I want to know what is healthy for me. Me: Not those chips or the Hershey Bar you just finished. JD: Well these are my last chips ever.
Cut to six hours later…Me: John David, I thought you were done eating chips. JD: I meant tomorrow Grace! Me: That’s what we all say…
I had a great lunch with Rob, my sister & her boyfriend at Sloppy Joe’s when I got home!
I also tried the new chocolate dipped cone at McDonald’s while picking up just a tea. It’s amazing. Seriously, just don’t try it. because you’ll crave one.
Phew! Well with that I am going to say goodnight I have another day full of Boca tomorrow and am very sleepy!
Have a Wonderful & Relaxing Sunday!
