Florida Vacation – Cocoa Beach and Jimmy Hula’s


Ryan and I have made it a bit of a tradition to visit my brother Aaron and his lovely bride Tracy in Florida whenever I’m around 35 weeks pregnant  :o) They got married when I was pregnant with Ruby. We left Ruby with my parents when I was this pregnant with Clara and came down for a visit… and here we are again.

My parents kept Ruby and Clara for the week so Ryan and I could have some time to catch up on sleep and get mentally prepared for our baby boy who will be making his debut in a little over a month.

Ryan had a conference (DDW – Digestive Disease Week) in Orlando, so he was already here when I flew down on Monday night. Tuesday morning we picked him up from his hotel and made our way to Cocoa Beach.

Tracy found us a sunny spot on the beach right between where clouds were making shady spots. Ryan applied a good amount of the SPF.IMG_1482

It was super relaxing and just overcast enough that we didn’t get too toasty on our first day out. We took a quick trip to Ron Jon Surf Shop to buy some flip-flops then headed back to the beach for another couple of hours.IMG_1485

Tuesday night we ate a this really great fish taco place called Jimmy Hula’s. I got the Pipeline Pork (which is pork, not a fish taco, but it had pickles on it, so I literally had to get it.) When we finished dinner we sat there for a while planning out our week and talking about all the things we want to do while we’re here. Tracy is the queen of organizing a schedule. She’s really handy to have around.IMG_1488

I can’t wait to share more pics and stories from our little vaca over the next few days.
