All I could hear my kids say was that they wanted to have fun.
I wanted to do something fun too, but I was an adult. I had to be the grown-up and make sure my kids had a lot to keep them busy during the summer vacation. We had only recently moved to Cocoa, Florida, and I was still trying to get familiar with the area. My daughter went online and found several things we could do. I couldn’t believe she was able to search for the information, more quickly than what it took me to turn on the computer. I felt like she was reading from a pamphlet that pointed out that the downtown area is called Cocoa Village, all along Florida AVenue and Stone Street. She told me about all the shops and restaurants there. She said the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse, which was originally called The Aladdin Theatre, was located in downtown Cocoa, in Cocoa Village. Since the theatre was updated, it had good air conditioning and I didn’t need to worry about anyone getting overheated. When you lived in the north all your life, you mostly worried about having a good furnace. Here in Cocoa, Florida, you need to make sure you have excellent air conditioning. She said we could go to the theatre one week and hit the Brevard Museum of History & Natural Science another time. She also pointed out that Cocoa had the Eastern Florida State College Planetarium and Observatory, and an excursion boat called the Indian River Queen. The rest of the time, they would be happy with a day or two at the beach, and just hanging out in the house, with the air conditioning.
