Jacksonville Trip

Last week I took my kids down to visit family in FL and stayed for a few days before coming back home to SC.
We visited the Tree Hill Nature Center
 
 
It was raining so we walked around the grounds a little bit and checked out some of the animals outside. Nice place and inexpensive!
 
The next day we went to The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. You can't take pictures inside the galleries, so all I got to document were the gardens, which were stunning.
Nice view of downtown from the edge of the gardens
 
We also went to an interesting restaurant called Clark's Fish Camp.
There were dead animals all over the place:
 I had the mahi basket which was pretty good.  I ate it all though before I thought about taking a picture of it ;)
 
While the kids stayed in FL, I went home and hung out with my husband for a few days.  We were able to go see a movie, which never happens!!  We saw The Heat which was really funny. 
 
I wore this super cute Luxe Craving necklace (c/o) for my day date with the hubs. 
Btw, I am loving that the Instagram filter turned my hair red.  I totally want to dye it that color now!
 
Anyone know of any other fun places to visit in JAX for my next trip down there??

  3. Gorgeous pictures! Those gardens are just lovely! I've never been to Jacksonville - we live in Colorado - so I have no advice for you except to come here! It's gorgeous and there's no end to the outdoorsy stuff you can do.
