Home again

We got back home a week ago today but it sure seems longer.  Neither of us were feeling tip top so it took us longer to settle back in and get unpacked.   The 35 year olds hiding inside or late 60 ish bodies is constantly surprised by aches, pains and minor effects of our ages. 

We had the 3 Grands yesterday as Kristen had the first of 6 days of teacher workshops. It seems the kids have grown just since we saw them 2 wks. ago at the beach.

 With our splash park temporarily closed, we took them to the one in Dunedin.  We played for about 35 min. when the sirens went off and the park closed for an approaching storm.  I was totally surprised by how many parents just sat on benches waiting for the water to turn back on or who headed for the nearby play ground.  After seeing the results of lightening this summer on Ft. Myers Beach, and because we know better, we don't mess around when we hear thunder.
We had a picnic lunch back at the kids' house and started the nap time routine.  The kids are use to Mama and it took us a long time to convince all 3 that sleep is a good thing.  We have them 2 days next week and I think we've got it now. 

We had a lovely dinner last night with our friends, Leeanne and Jerry, at Tarpon Tavern where we met a couple of years ago.  We tried out a couple of new items on the menu, got to say hello to our favorite waitresses: Paris, Marguarita and Candace who were all 3 working last night.  NOW we know we are home!
