Somebody loves the beach.
Despite several stressful, chaotic moments during our trip, all in all, we had a great time. We built this trip up for months for Knox and I think it was everything he expected and more. He loved the water, the sand, the quality time with family and, of course, the constant availability of snack foods and TV. He says his favorite part was the aquarium where he got to meet an alligator.
He also tried his hand at mini golf (read: ran through the course looking for the rhino, giraffe and elephant statues because he wanted to ride on them), had his first taste of a sno cone and adopted a hermit crab whom he named Goggo (RIP Goggo, it was a great 24 hours). Our other souvenir was a cold that the kids caught, but they weathered it well and were in good spirits regardless (aside from a hellish car ride home for poor Lately).
And Tarrell even braved the beach, his least favorite place on earth, so Knox could have his Dad there with him to experience it all.
