St. Augustine, Florida









Andrew and I had a free weekend (a rare commodity!) and so took the opportunity to drive down to Jacksonville, FL to visit with his grandparents. After staying a night with them, we continued into the heart of Jacksonville's shopping district to pick up some much-needed dishes on our registry at Pottery Barn. Thank Heaven for gift cards! (And thanks to all who gave them!)

Being that far south in Jacksonville, we started to see signs to St. Augustine, a pretty little colonial town on the coast. It wasn't that much farther, and we'd been wanting to go explore it sometime. So, on a whim, we headed the car further south and made it to St. Augustine. We found a hotel and then set out to find food, only to get caught in a waterfall! Okay, so I'm from Oregon and I know rain...but this was MORE than rain! It was hot, too!

By the next morning, the skies were clear and we did a little sightseeing and coffee shop finding and picture taking before we bid farewell to the quaint-ish village of St. Augustine. We'll be back.

Yes, very cool place, I've been there. Hey, and a lot of Seth's relatives live in Jacksonville too. His parents are both from there.
Great pics. You guys look way happy.
LOVE AND MISS YOU!

Hi dearest~
sorry the phone calls were so crazy this week! I was out shopping and just had to call you cause I saw all this kitchen stuff I wanted to buy you -- but thought I should check and see if you needed it... but when I couldn't get ahold of you first thing... what did I do? Just bought it all anyway. So there is a box coming your way, and you know how I am with surprises... I'm trying to make myself not type on here what I got you...don't do it Lys -- look at me having self control! Ahhh!

Okay~

looks like a wonderful little getaway -- you look beautiful Cass and simply not single. Pretty pics too of course. Wasn't it good of God to give you a little vacation together... love those spontanious little things. So glad for you.

Will call again- when is a good time?

Hey "Aunt Cass" !!! I love you and can't wait to meet Andrew! We talk about him like we already know him though! Shelton called him "Uncle Andrew" the other day when he saw his picture!

love, Scott Welch
