Alligators and Baby Sydney

Yesterday we went to Jarvis Park here on Hilton Head Island. In all the years we have been coming here, we have never been to this park. Our son-in-law wanted to do some fishing so we tagged along for a little while. This sign was at the park. Believe me I wasn't going to feed the alligators. LOL But as soon as you walked on the dock of the little lake, these guys came over. I guess they thought you would give them some food or they were hoping one of us would fall in the water. This guy was all over the place, they sure are scary looking.
It was a catch and release lake so Jamiel did catch a few but threw them back in. Maddie was very fascinated with the alligators and turtles. She thought they were great fun. We left her Daddy to fish and went to get some lunch.

Last night we went back to the beach to try and get photos of Sydney. Isn't she just the sweetest little thing? She actually rolled over for the first time while lying here on the beach. But we didn't get any good shots because it was very windy last night and we were all afraid sand was going to get in Sydney's eyes. I know it got in my mouth and I could feel sand for a few hours. Not a good taste. LOL

So we decided the best way to get sand out of your mouth was to go and get some ice cream. June, this photo is for you. My sister June loves Rita's gelati. This one was the best, black cherry ice with vanilla custard, so good. This is why I am gaining weight this week. LOL
When we were done stuffing ourselves with ice cream we decided to go for a night time swim. This was Sydney's first time in a swimming pool and she loved it. The water was so warm and she was just smiling and talking. Okay this is not the best photo of me (no makeup and my hair all wet and a mess) but my sweetie and Sydney are so cute. Have a great Thursday! My Texas buddies are in my thoughts and prayers right now so be safe and take care.

Ok, so we are coming down to have some gelati!!!! We are so obsessed with it! Making me want some now. You can go to and see where the stores are located throughout the US. I think we may start planning our vacations around where Rita's are located - ha, ha!!
