Once we went to Pensacola

Our adventure began, early evening… a road trip with a 6 month old, a 3 year old and two exhausted parents. 10 hours in a car, to Pensacola. Sadly, my godfather, and uncle, passed away and we hadn’t been up to see them. I wish so bad that we had gone sooner – but we made the best of the sadness… and spent some time with my amazing Auntie.

So behind her house, is this AMAZING little “forest” Chech called it. It was really just an overgrown lot – but every once in a while my aunt said Deer would pass through. I’m just a fan of this beautiful golden light.

We TRIED to go walk around Downtown the first day – but it was 40 degrees. Wind was NUTS. So these South Floridians took one step out of the car, saw some dolphins swimming in the harbor, and bee lined it straight back to the car.

We settled for some take out pizza, coloring and cartoons at home instead. Which was perfect, considering we got to hang out and talk to my Auntie – and see all the amazing pictures from her and my Uncle’s road trip around the US. They took these beautiful photos of all these national parks they had visited… and I got to hear stories about how much fun they had. 🙂
On our last day in town, Javy and I took the girls into Downtown Pensacola to explore while my Aunt took care of some things around the house.

Here, we stumbled across the Pensacola Children’s Museum – where we had so much fun playing in the market and historically themed exhibits. Pretty darn cool! DowntownPensacola-0024 DowntownPensacola-0027 DowntownPensacola-0029 DowntownPensacola-0034 DowntownPensacola-0042 DowntownPensacola-0045 DowntownPensacola-0049 DowntownPensacola-0055 DowntownPensacola-0058 DowntownPensacola-0083 DowntownPensacola-0084 DowntownPensacola-0094 DowntownPensacola-0098

Then we took a walk around downtown… checking out the park squares, the “Old” town and we even wandered over to a tiny beach.DowntownPensacola-0103 DowntownPensacola-0110 DowntownPensacola-0112 DowntownPensacola-0116 DowntownPensacola-0124 DowntownPensacola-0134 DowntownPensacola-0140 DowntownPensacola-0152 DowntownPensacola-0165 DowntownPensacola-0175

Although the reason for our visit wasn’t the best – it was a chance for us to spend some time with my Auntie and enjoy her company.

I miss her much.
