JACKSON, AHOY ...!

                             

I may be in Sarasota -- on Florida's Gulf Coast this week -- but it feels more like Jacksonville now that my six month old nephew, Jackson, arrived here to take his first-ever vacation with the family.  Actually, it's my first vacation in a while, too, and we're having a ball.  We spent today walking all around St. Armand's Circle, a popular destination near the Lido Key, filled with quaint shops and restaurants.  Jackson is almost always all smiles.  While some skeptics might say he's just exceptionally "gassy," I think he's really a gas ...!

OMG, he's such a cutie! I would love to blow a rasberry on his belly to make him laugh.

Gee...do I see a striking resemblance to Uncle Marty?  He's really cute!  Florida sounds like a great place to be this time of year.  Hope you have a relaxing, happy time with the family.  Hasta...

He's a happy lil man!  I'm glad you are able to take some R&R time and enjoy yourself with family!  I hope the rest of your trip continues to be enjoyable!

Marty, he's adorable.  Please convince them to come to California so we can enjoy him at 7th and Montana.
Alex would love him.

You travel a lot & it may seem like vacation to us, but I am sure not to you.  Lucky you to get a vacation with such an adorable kid. ~Mary
