Pocketful of Sunshine

It was just last week that Lawnmower Man and I did what all good baptist parents do on spring break.  We dropped off our child at the church so she could go on a mission trip and high tailed it to the airport to find a pocketful of sunshine...

We found it and within a few short hours two of the whitest people on earth were sitting on a Bahama island.

Sittin' in the mornin' sun, I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
 (No computer and no phones. I logged lots of hours in this chair.)

Watchin' the ships come in and and then I watch'em roll away again
I could not post this picture and not include that classic song line.  You can't get this cheeziness just anywhere.

We rode around town on a city bus to go shopping and to restaurants. Lawnmower Man told me not to click my gum or we I would get kicked off the bus.  Lawnmower Man was in shock over the crazy bus driving but it didn't phase me one bit because it was calm compared to the roads in Africa ;)  Although they didn't have that gum clicking rule in Africa.

We were solicited many times to go on the booze cruise. We obviously look like two people that would enjoy hanging out with a boat full of 20 year old spring break drunks.

Two people that are hopeful that their child will go on another spring break mission trip.

P.S. I will report later this week about the bahama sun, my forehead and the cost of sunscreen on an island.

Look like nothing's gonna change
Everything still remains the same
you'll still get that blotchy tan
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away mom
