Family Vacation 2015

I am starting this blog post at 12:30pm, on Day 2 of our vacation. :)
I will, periodically, update this same post..
I will keep it updated throughout the week, and let you in on all of our (mis)adventures!!! ;)

Day 1: Sunday, June 21, 2015 (aka Father's Day):
We didn't do much, hung around the house, relaxing.. Went to Ale House for dinner, with Eric's dad.

Day 2: Monday, June 22, 2015:

Woke up at 5:30, got ready & hit the road to Cape Canaveral...
About half way there, a strange (just meaning we had never seen it before) dash warning light, lit up..
Google to the rescue... & pulling off of the highway..
It turned out to be the transmission temperature warning light... UGH!!!
So, we headed back... stopped at a Napa half way here, got a transmission dipstick to test the fluid...
I decided that I would pay for a rental car..
We are sitting at the house, waiting for our reservation to arrive lol..
We have decided to go to St. Augustine for the rest of today (after we pick up the rental lol).
We will do the Fort and just walk around.. have some dinner, etc...
Tomorrow will be attempt 2 for Kennedy Space Center.
Ty has no idea where we are going & I am hoping that he LOVES it!!!

On another note, I am still trying to talk Eric into doing Wild Adventures, too hehe

**p.s. it may be nothing serious with our car, but we are playing it "better safe than sorry" with the rental.. the warning light never lit back up on our return trip.**

Day 3: Tuesday, June 23, 2015 (8:20am):

St. Augustine was so awesome, HOT, but awesome.
We went to Castillo de San Marcos.  I took 108 pictures bahahaha.. uploaded most of them to FB.. (thinking that I may come back through here, and add a few of my faves from the week ;) we will see..)
Anywho.. it was my first time & it was really interesting, and SO beautiful!!!
After that, we drove to the lighthouse so Ty could see it.
Then, we drove to see if we could check out Fort Mantanza.. we saw it, across the water.. hahaha
Chili's for dinner.. then home.
Was a nice family day :)

I was so tired, last night, that I fell asleep, in my chair, in the living room a little after 9 hahaha..
Well, what that means is that I forgot to reset my alarm (for 5..).. LUCKILY, my internal alarm still woke me up a little after 7... My eyes opened & my room was not dark, I freaked a little..
We are on the road, now..
I am sipping on a caramel frappé, from Burger King, lol
Google Maps says we will arrive to Cape Canaveral around 10.. which is only an hour late.. Not too bad, I suppose..
I mean, do we really expect it to take the full 10 hours?! (KSC hours 9a-7p).. I don't think so, we should be fine! :)
Anyone who has ever been, how long did it take you to get through the whole thing?

Alright.. that's all, for now..

(to be continued...)
