BLUE SPRINGS / JULY 4TH WEEKEND SPECTACULAR!
We arrived at Blue Springs on Saturday morning around 11:30am. Alex was ready as soon as we got here to get into his boat and head down the springs to the river! The park was very accomodating and came to our camp site to pick him up and take him down to the river. We loaded him up on the golf cart and headed down to the beach area where we had his chariot (boat) awaiting him to head out on our excursion. We got him in the boat and 5 minutes in the water he was ready to get out, hahahaha! So I ended up in the boat with him and we headed down the springs and up to where the springs run into the Santa Fe River and then we floated back down with the help of Meredith and Aaron pulling us and guiding us! That was about a 45 minute excursion... fantastic for Alex! Once we got back to the shore, we headed back to the RV and the boys sat with him and watched movies while mom got some relaxation in the sun :0) Later on that night we hung out around the RV and were outside eating when Brooks noticed someone with a "TEAM ALEX" shirt go by. I said.. go get em and bring them back here... they probably don't know that we are here and may want to meet Alex. Brooks goes off to find him and brings back one of Alex's biggest fans...he goes by the name...Peanut :0)
How cool is it that we come to another place...1.5 hours away from Jacksonville and have an admirer here! God works in mysterious ways!
Yesterday we woke up and decided to go canoeing and actually got Alex in one of the canoes and made him his own special seat, lol.
