Another Week 29 comes to an end :(

Woke up this morning at about a quarter of five...why? I have no clue.  We have actually been sleeping in to between 6:30 and even 7 am on one occasion. Cheryl and John headed out to the airport around 4 ish this morning; Linda and her sweet granddaughters leave around 9 for their plane back to St. Louis and the kids and the Grands will head out after the Pirate Ship adventure today.

On Wed., we all pretty much hung out around the place, swimming and reading and talking but on Thurs. some of us headed for the Girls' Shopping Day at the big outlet mall.  We added Landon to our outing so Daddy would only have 2 of the 3 Grands to keep an eye on while we were gone.  Landon is a super shopper too!  Thurs was also our Shrimp boil compliments of E.  Jamie and Adam got in late Wed. and joined us for the boil.

Yesterday, everyone did their last minute souvenir shopping and then we all met back at our "home away from home" for the traditional beach pictures.

 Papa and his "Bella".

 Last night's sunset was one of the prettier ones we've had this week.

 Linda and her grand daughters (l) Billie and (r) Katie.
 These are Landon and Colvin's "girlfriends" and the boys will sure miss these two gals who gave so freely of their time this past week even baby sitting one evening so Chris and Kristen could go out with Adam and Jamie for a cocktail or two.

and our favorite "irregular" regulars, Cheryl and John.  Keep watching for those unit sales, Cheryl.  We want you two back next year!
 Getting frisky!
 The retired gals.
 We clean up pretty good, don't we?
 Guess who?  lol
Katie, Linda and I headed over to Sanibel to show Katie the sights.  My parents old restaurant, Joey's, is no longer a real estate office and the parking lot is being torn up.  Not sure what is going on there.  Ding Darling was closed except for the Nature Center and it was difficult to get to the light house to show Katie, but we did.  Then it was on to shopping and all 3 of us went home with something fun.

I may have to go back and get a couple of these dolls we saw at Pandora's Box gift shop for some of my gal pal Christmas gifts and maybe one for moi as well.  Too cute.

We even had a beach wedding here last night and it was such a pretty one.

Best of luck to the newly weds.

Our consolation prize for losing our Week 29ers is our friend Bob, who arrives for a couple of day visit later this morning and our dear friends, Jo and Bill who rented from our other pals, Jill and Kelly, for this upcoming week.  Bring on Week 30!
