Mini-Vacay

Looks like we’ll be able to squeeze in a family mini-vacation this summer! Our destination? Jacksonville and St. Augustine, Florida. We’re excited!

There doesn’t appear to be a lot of family things to do in Jacksonville. The Zoo. Fort Caroline. The beach {we can stay home for that.} But just a short car ride away is St. Augustine. The oldest city in America. The first Catholic settlement. Living museums. Ghost train tours. Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Pirate ships. The list goes on and on.

And then, of course, Daytona for the Fourth of July. We’ve never been to a race, but since we will be driving home on Sunday before the Coca-Cola 400, we decided to see the Subway Firecracker 250 which is NASCAR XFINITY regulars facing off against Sprint Cup Series stars. {Hope someone understands all that racing jargon. It’s Greek to me!} Nonetheless, a good time for the Hills of Sims Mill Pond.
