Friday, Jo gave Papa E a break and rode with me to pick up the kids. We met E at Tarpon Tavern and Jo went to pick up Bill. We had a lovely dinner in the courtyard. Sat., Jo and I headed down to St. Pete to see her godson, my son, Rob and visit my friend Di St. Jacques-Blue had a booth at the Sat. Market there. She sells the most amazing flowers made from plastic bottles...so beautiful! We all met for a glass of wine and then Jo and I promptly got lost heading north...usual for me . I get all turned around in St. Pete!
Sunday, E and I finished off tons of things around the house and hit a huge sale at Beall's. We are pretty much done with the preparations for our trip. We are awaiting the e tickets for the plane trips and our luggage tags from the cruise lines. The To Do list has shrunk to practically nothing. To celebrate, we met Jo and Bill at Miss Vickie's on the Anclote for lunch. The beer was cold, the burgers juicy and we had a great time listening to some excellent bluegrass by the Michigan Misfits.
Monday, we hung around the house and just chilled. Today is our half day with the Grands. Papa read Cat in the Hat to them while they had breakfast and they listened to almost the whole book.
Here are a few pics of the kids on the ride...Leighton loves to hold hands with her big brothers...them, not as much! lol
That brings me back to Wed., tomorrow, and cropping at POSH.
I shall try to be more diligent about blogging. More and more blogs I use to follow have not been updated in eons and I don't want to join that. This is more than a way for friends and family to keep in touch with us...it is my journal. Thanks for your patience.
