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

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!
Sand in her curls
It was a great visit! Thanks for coming, Dad!
E.J. and his Papa!
