First we had nap time. Landon put on his favorite pumpkin hat and his bat man slippers and drifted off to a couple of hours of snooze time.
And then it was ICE CREAM time. He and I headed down to the Sponge Docks to try a new place that specialized in yogurt ice cream and gelatos. We were not disappointed. Landon got the strawberry cheese cake and shared nicely with Nana.
We try to come up with something new for each grandson as they visit in turn. Colvin's last visit included a brief splash in the Gulf. We gave Landon the choice between a ride on the Jolly Trolley to Dunedin to see the boats and stores or a visit to the little Sunset Beach where Colvin took his dips. Landon chose Sunset Beach.
One tradition has developed and that is making breakfast with Papa.
And, after breakfast, off we went to the beach.
We built two sandcastles, one with a moat for our boat and one without. We labored hard and long hauling water, splashing in the little waves and seeking building advise from Papa. When it got too hot, we showered off, headed home and went swimming at our house, had lunch and then took Landon home.
Another sweet weekend with one of our Grands. Colvin was already asking about his turn.
Today would have been my mother's 88th. birthday. I so wish she could be here to see all her great grandchildren, Keala (my niece, Jenn's daughter), the twins and our little Leighton. Happy Birthday Mom.
