Fun with Papa

Last week my dad spent a few of his vacation days up here with us. Of course, we showed off our new house and took him on various walking tours of our new neighborhood.

Ellie and her Papa having fun at the "train park"

Swinging together!

Splashing in puddles

More splashing the next night at Friendship Fountain

Along the riverfront with Papa (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery)

Just being generally sweet

Reading up about Treaty Oak (more imitation!)

She was mid-temper tantrum here, but you'd never know it because she's all MODEL STATUS.

My dad stayed at a hotel out on Jacksonville Beach, so when he wasn't here being dragged all over San Marco, we joined him out at the beach for fun in the pool, the sand and at a nearby playground.

More swings!

Selfie time!

Chasing after her Papa

It should be noted that this was E.J.'s very first time at the beach!

A couple of beach bums on a blanket!


Judging by the photos he took, my dad also very much enjoyed the beach at sunrise each morning.


He also brought Ellie's sandbox with him from his house, which was backyard fun for the whole family!

Sandbox time!

Sand in her curls

It was a great visit! Thanks for coming, Dad!

E.J. and his Papa!
