So, on Sunday we went up to Jacksonville to reclaim our two youngest kids ~ who really wanted to stay forever with their big sister and brother in law who are much much cooler than mom and dad. I can't say I blame them... J&J took them bowling and to a baseball game, out to eat at Jacksonville's hot spot "The Landing", played endless video games and board games with them. I even heard charades was involved. And they were only there for 2 days!
The last time I saw J&J's apt was when we moved them in and they had not gotten their new living room furniture yet. I have to say, I was highly impressed with how nicely and quickly Jen got their apt together. It looks great. Shortly after getting there, we were all hungry so we jumped back in the CR-V and headed to downtown Jacksonville ~ to The Landing. It was a relatively quiet Sunday there but I can see how it would be hopping on a Friday or Saturday night. It's right on the river and lots of restaurants, bars & shops. We ate at Mongo's. It's one of those places where you fill your bowl with raw meats & veggies, throw in your own spices and oils and bring it over to the chef to cook for you. There was lots to choose from and other than the fact it was a bit too warm in the place, it was a good lunch. Afterwards we took a nice boat ride around the area got some nice cool drinks
Goofed around Is that anyway for a son in law to treat his father in law?
Listened to a very good local band in the plaza
We really enjoyed Jacksonville And look forward to our next visit.
