Happy 2019! We woke up and grabbed breakfast in the hotel lobby, dreading the drive back to North Carolina. We were planning to stop in Savannah, so that was something to look forward to. That and South of the Border. Yeah, not so much, that’s more of an iconic milestone that we’re almost home. It was a fun road trip home, which were sure you can relate to in some capacity.
This was the day, NC State was battling Texas A&M in the 2018 Gator Bowl. We were in Jacksonville ready for the game and ready to ring in the new year. We had lunch at Jax Beach before the game and enjoyed more Florida sunshine.
Today was our last day in Cocoa Beach before heading to Jacksonville for the Gator Bowl. We had to pack everything up, but before hitting the road for two hours, we wanted to milk our time in the warm sun in Cocoa Beach. There was surf, a final visit to Ron Jon’s, and some lunch at the Tiny Turtle. Once we arrived Jacksonville, we checked into our hotel and went to the beach where things were chilly and foggy. It was another amazing day in Florida.
Saturday was our last full day in Cocoa Beach, Florida and we couldn’t ask for better weather. On tap today was some sweet morning surf, a gator tour, some local taps, and a great dinner at Fat Kahunas. Check out our adventures and don’t miss out on gators in the wild!
Our second day on vacation in Cocoa Beach, Florida gave us a taste of life in Florida. We went to the zoo, Zander and Jason went zip lining, and spent some time on the beach. You don’t want to miss out on our selfies with giraffe’s.
The first full day in Cocoa Beach, Florida, was a little unplanned and hectic. We dealt with urgent care, grocery shopping, finding the best fish taco, and shopping at Ron Jon’s surf shop. Let’s dive into the details.
Happy Holidays! The Hibbets family wrapped up Christmas activities and visits to see family over the last few days and we were ready for some much needed vacation. We were heading south to Cocoa Beach for a few days in the Florida sunshine, then to Jacksonville to attend the Gator Bowl on News Years Eve.
The Christmas spirit is alive and well in Spencer, North Carolina. Our family decided to kick off the holiday season with a day trip to the N.C. Transportation Museum and take a ride on The Polar Express™. It was a magical time that the kids enjoyed (and the adult kids may have enjoyed more). Let’s reflect on a great 2018 Thanksgiving Day weekend that involved a Turkey Trot, Thanksgiving lunch, Carolina Hurricanes hockey, NC State at UNC Chapel Hill football, and more. Continue reading →
Our final day in Colorado was about as packed as it could be. Some killer breakfast, a visit with some dinosaurs, and some last minute breweries before heading to the airport. Here’s our final rush in the Rockies. Continue reading →
Today was the day we’ve been waiting for—The Dirty Heads were headlining at the Red Rocks. But first, getting there was part of our journey. More breweries and a trip to Denver were on tap. A few stops in Ft Collins were in order before we headed south. Continue reading →
