Weekend Wrap Up

I already told y'all about the first part of our weekend here and here.

On Saturday night, I worked, and when I got home Sunday morning we went off in search of some fun in the sun. The teenagers didn't want to come along, so it was just me, John, and Elayna.

Florida State Parks were having a free admission day, so first we went to O'Leno State Park, but their swimming area was closed due to low water levels, and they also were not renting canoes. So we walked around there first, took some pictures, and then left to find a spot to swim.

the suspension bridge was a leeeetle scary!

We ended up at Poe Springs park, which is not a state park but a very nice springs.

the water is so clear and beautiful. and COLD!!




I love weekends like this.
It was simple but fun,
and I know the kids made some good, lasting memories.
That's what it's all about!


FYI for Florida residents/visitors: there are two more "no-fee" days at Florida State Parks this year, check it out at FloridaStateParks.org!

Looks like y'all had a good time this weekend.

Not sure I would have walked that bridge

Looks beautiful there. I can't believe how low the water is at the first park, though. Wow...knowing how close to the surface the water table is in FL, that's just scary to think it's that dry down there.

Silly teenagers missed a nice day.

I LOVE Florida State Parks. I probably visit one at least once a week. I even have a annual pass. Your photos are wonderful.
