It's about time I show you some pictures from Florida. I really didn't take many and several are from my phone. When you go someplace often enough sometimes you just forget about the pictures. I spent 16 days with my dad and family. It was a perfect visit. I've been home for about 20 days now. Time sure does go by quickly!
We kept super busy. We watched the Olympics each night from 8pm until Midnight. That was fun for us and every time the medals were given out we stood up for the National Anthem and of course crossed our hearts. We went to the casino and also went to show to see Hope Springs.
I did notice that this time my dad's memory wasn't as good as when I visited him in March. We would have a discussion about something and maybe a few hours later, or the next day, we would have it all over again :( This is very hard on me. Also had a few close calls while he was driving. Got honked at a few times :o I worry about that but I'm not sure how to take that away from him. If he can't get out and run little errands each day he would be so unhappy. It would truly be the end of his life. All in all though he is doing great. A lot of aches and pains which he tries to live with. It's so hard when the body ages. I love him so much.
Fun with Ashlynn and Garrett. Went to Build-a-Bear and took advantage of the special they had going on. These are my sisters grandchildren. The showed me their diving!
Relaxing in the sun. Also did exercises in the pool.
Took the kids bowling. We had so much fun!
Amanda, Ashlynn, Amber and Garrett
Love the clouds in Florida!
My sister and BIL. My niece Melissa, great niece Amber and her friend. We all got pedicures. Melissa and Amber again plus Amanda and Garrett. Had some great meals out. One night my dad and I were lucky enough to meet with my sister and BIL for a free meal at Red Robin. There is a new one that was opening at their mall and my sister was invited to attend since she manages the Hallmark in the mall. That was fun! It's really hard living so far away from all of them.
A saucer my dad had that I brought home with me.
Wish I had the cup! And the cute little sign bought for my kitchen.
A few odds and ends. A super tiny frog, not much bigger then the raindrops on the hood of the car. The tiniest lizard I have ever seen. A MJ game at the casino. I didn't get around to play it. A magazine I picked up at the airport that is so awesome. For Woman First and it is packed full of awesome idea! Some ducks in a row and a mosaic alligator outside the mall by Red Robin.
There you have it!
Happy Labor Day
