The day after we went to Sea World Joni (Theresa's sister) took us to Clearwater Beach which is only about 45 minutes from her house. My girls absolutely LOVE the beach. I mean really what's not to love? Sand, water, and kids everywhere to play with (all three of them made fast friends with the girls next to us.) Konnor who apparently didn't love the beach in CA decided FL beaches were great (really they are the sand is SOOOO soft and fine and the water is perfectly warm!) So all the little girls had a great time and the big girls got to hang out on the beach chairs and tan and talk (okay and play with the kids a little too!) We had such a great time in FL and HAVE to thank Joni and Rick for letting us come and crash. It was my first time in FL and it was a great time!
After the beach we went to dinner (where Lexi ate way more than her share of shrimp!) We decided to do some window shopping and ended up at this store that had a wave place inside. Basically it simulates an ocean wave. You had to be 46 inches to boogie board (52 to surf) and Lexi was just tall enough to boogie board so I just couldn't pass it up. She did so GOOD! We were all impressed. You take turns with everyone for a half an hour and everyone else would get on and end up flipping it and that would end their turn. Not Lexi the instructor had to tell her her time was up and she would basically flip herself (granted there was only one other kid in there and the adults were standing and actually surfing so it was a little harder but still the other kid flipped it pretty fast every time!)
