This is the last post of our Christmas week activities. On Friday, we went to West Palm Beach for a tour on the Diva Duck! It is one of those amphibious boats, and it does a little tour of downtown West Palm Beach, then goes out into the intercoastal (Lake Worth Lagoon is the official name, I learned) and gives a tour of a section of Palm Beach Island. Even though we live here, we found it very interesting and learned some new things about where we live! Some of the homes we saw belong to James Patterson, the well-known mystery novelist (his son goes to the school where I teach), the founder of Slim-Fast (whose daughter goes to the school where I teach), the heirs of the Ford fortune, and a few others. It was a very relaxing ride! For any of you who live down here and have kids, this would be a really fun activity for you!
Payton was very wiggly, but she enjoyed it most of the time.
Not sure what happened here...she was much more into her snack than she was posing for a picture!
It was nice to spend such quality time with my parents, too!
Chad, Jennifer, and the boys. Jake was apparently not too interested in having his picture taken, either!
On Saturday, we went to the mall for a little bit before taking them to the airport. Zach and Payton enjoyed some of the little rides. Jake is still too little, but we enjoyed spending time with him too!
Zach was "amazed" by the train! He LOVES trains right now!
Zach and Payton rode the taxi together!
After going to the airport, we stopped back by CityPlace for a little bit. They were having nightly "snowfalls", which we wanted to see. Payton loved it, but wasn't quite sure what to think at first! It was pretty impressive to see how they made a "snowfall" out of seemingly nowhere...in south Florida!
