Fun Day in St. Augustine

We spent the day in St. Augustine --- walked around, ate lunch, and went to the Alligator Farm. I will put more pictures up on Shutterfly. We had sooooo much fun! And for dinner when we got back, I had a crockpot full of Candace's absolutely delicious chicken stuff FILLED with mushrooms! What a scrumptious recipe, Candace. I will definitely be making that a lot.

The Alligator Farm?! ...that was where we(Daddy, Mama, Eric, Krisin, Mera, and the kids and I) were going to go that day you had to work when we visited you. But then, we ended up going to the Jax zoo instead...which we loved and had so much fun there too!
Is there no fence between Eric and the alligators? Did they let you pet or feed that little one?
I'm glad you liked the recipe even if there were mushrooms in it(yeah, I know, that was the BEST part, right Mama?) :)

Sounds like a fun day.Daddy and I, and who ever else is there will have to go there the next time we come. Daddy wants to know if we pay extra, can we see little Kaleb and Grandaddy wrestle the alligators (small one)? Wasn't the recipe absolutely the best stuff you ever had? We three went to Williamsburg yesterday and daddy and I used my McDonald's gift card for lunch. You girls are going to have to get going and beat your OLD mom on the next set of riddles.

Where are the big gaters?

Katie said...

In response to everyone's questions....

CANDACE: Yes, there is a fence between Eric and the gators. They let us throw food to the big gators and pet the little gator.

MAMA: Yes, that chicken recipe had to be the best thing I've ever eaten.

KEVIN: Ok, there were TONS of big gators, but my camera was starting to dead so I was trying to save my pictures. The biggest live gator there I think is 16 feet long and has arthritis in his jaw so he can't open his mouth very wide. He enjoys a diet of vegetables and dead rats.
