On our last day we woke up very early to drop Papaw, Nina, Keekah, and Manny off at the airport then drove back to Bradenton to visit with Grandpa Walt and Grandma Pam before we had to catch our flight at 3:15. We had some breakfast and when Grandma Pam got home from work we headed for the boat. Charlee was the captain overseeing our voyage:
It was a very nice day for a boat ride... thank the lord that Charlee was okay with her life jacket! Especially after Grandpa Walt took us out into the OCEAN... it made me a little nervous, but he is a seasoned boater and knew exactly where to go to avoid any trouble.
I still cant believe they just ride the golf cart down to the dock and hop on their boat and go wherever their hearts desire. They had big plans for July 4th where they could see some of the best fireworks from the water! Sounds perfect to me. Charlee loved her Grandparents and still talks about them. Grandpa Walt - there have been several sightings of your twin up here in Indiana. Charlee points to random strangers that do kinda look like you and say "Grandpa Walt" so you have made an impact on my girl. Thank you both for letting us into your home and showing us nothing but kindness. Your very thoughtful people, and we are blessed to have you.
P.S. Grandpa Walt you had the timing down perfectly, if we would have left a minute later we would have missed our flight!! I had to stop to get her nummies in a shop on the way to the gate and they were doing the last call over head. You almost had us another night!! But that would mean more awesome cooking... so we would have been in heaven. See you in September!!
