Day 5: Should we stay or should we go?

Our initial day of departure was going to be Friday, July 1; but we had the option of staying one more night due to no one being in the house the following day. After deliberating with everyone, the choice was easy; we were staying one more night! Thursday turned out being about the same as all of the other days that we have been in Florida; laying on the beach, taking in the sun, playing in the sand and water, reading a good book*, and enjoying some drinks. At this point, I had decided that I was no longer going to live in Arkansas and our family was going to permanently live on the beach. Unfortunately, we couldn't escape reality for forever and would be heading back home Saturday morning. At least we were getting ONE more day on the beach. We had been talking about renting one of the little cars and driving it around town and today was the day we had our special little ride to cruise in. Parker really enjoyed the car and I actually was able to drive this one. It took the older girls and Parker out for a spin and enjoyed pointing "dudes" out to them.

Dinner that night consisted of us trying to choose a seafood place to hit up that could also accompany the massive amount of people in our group. The big time places would of course have hours and hours a small amount of waiting and we ended up finding this nice little hole in the wall place, Dee's Hang Out. The food was pretty good and the jalapeno oysters were delicious! Watching my younger brother try oysters was by far the highlight of the evening. His faces while consuming were priceless. (Sorry no pictures :( )

* Side note: I had started reading Chelsea Handler's "Hello Vodka, It's Me Chelsea" and if you are looking for a book to read, have dry and raunchy humor, THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU! I was literally laughing and giggling out loud the entire time reading the book. I had actually started her next book, "My Horizontal Life": also too much for words. I had never really been a big fan of hers or been a big fan of watching Chelsea Lately, but my opinion has drastically changed after reading her first book. :)
