Night Out on the Town.....

Brenna and Logan both got haircuts at Hair Peace.....Brenna didn't mind a picture or two...Logan not so much :-)
Brenna's boyfriend, Jason, was visiting from Orlando for a couple of days so we thought we'd go out to dinner and show him a bit of downtown Jacksonville. My plan was to drive downtown and take the River Taxi across to American Cafe and then to ride the monorail back across the river..


.
We found the bench where Broc had proposed to me many years ago...a perfect place for a couple of pictures.....
I don't think Broc wanted any more proposing on this bench........



Every year, a group of different animals are painted by local artists and displayed all over town for several months before they are auctioned off for charity...This year was the Turtle year and Logan found one to hug.....




Waiting for the River Taxi...




Things were still going smoothly at dinner....Logan's friend Trevor joined us and we really enjoyed sitting by the river as the sun was setting........


Up to this point it had been a perfect evening....We left the restaurant walking towards one of the monorail stations and got caught up in a post graduation crowd. Walked and walked and walked....finally found they station which was closed!!! There we were on the wrong side of the river...9:00 at night. Our choices were to walk all the way back and catch another river Taxi OR
walk across a very huge high bridge across the river. Anyone out there know about my bridge phobia??? The people I love voted to cross on the bridge......so we did.......
Up, Up, Up...Very Very High on this narrow path with cars rushing by on one side and a alarmingly long drop to the river below.......I don't think I said two words and Broc kept saying..."This is so cool!!!"

All ended well with finding our car.........and a fun story to share........

I'm glad you were brave enough to cross that cool (to some) bridge. That's one nice looking boyfriend! Brenna's prettier than ever, and looks more like you in those photos than I've noticed before.

I enjoyed that photo essay of your night out!
