I haven't written anything for so long - thought I should get back at it! My sweet grandaughter has her own Ipod now so is able to send email to Grandma and Grandpa. Here is her latest offering - a caricature of her done at The Royal Winter Fair. It is cute but not as cute as she is!

Florida 2013

Here we are spending our 5th winter at Sun City Center.

The weather this year has been record breaking heat !

We are now enjoying more usual January temperatures which are still 22-24*C.

We have been pretty laid back saving money and energy for when the kids and grandkids visit at the end of  February!!

We did go on a cruise and to lunch in Sarasota where we saw dolphins, many types of birds and sea life. We met our friends, the Dugas, as well as Bonnie and Lou and Dianna and Bill Walton and enjoyed lunch at The Salty Dog overlooking Sarasota Bay after the cruise. A great day!.

Scavenger Hunt

We had a wonderful week with our wee girls the last week in June. They came to Grandma and Grandpa's for their first visit without Moms, Dads or brothers!

We did lots of fun things but I think one of their favorites was the Scavenger Treausre Hunt organized by Grandma while they were at the coffee shop one morning with Gramps!

The only problem was I think they thought it was a race ... they flew around reading the clues and finding all the "treasures" in record time!

Racing up the stairs:

On the Hunt:

The Treasure

A Fun Scavenger Hunt

What a busy week with our little girls at the end of was their first visit to Grandma & Grandpa's all alone Moms, Dads or brothers to bug them !

We had so much fun but I think one of the highlights of their visit was the scavenger hunt set up by Grandma while they were at the coffee shop with Gramps.

The only problem being I think they thought it was a race... they found all the clues and the "treasures" very quickly.

Here are some pictures of the activity!

Happy Birthday Beautiful Girl !!

We just got home from almost a week in Toronto. The time flew by but we were glad to get home to our own bed!! Yeah ..we are getting old! However, that being said we sure miss our grandkids after having spent a lot of time with them especially for Ava's birthday.
It is hard to believe our beautiful girl is now 7 years old!!
I promised her I would post some birthday pictures so here they are...I will scrap them later this week!

Snow on Mother's Day !

We awoke to a winter wonderland on Mother's is not the weather you expect in May!

Even a tough little dandelion had to sruggle to poke it's head thru the snow.

The daffodils were very cold too! I had planned to go to the cemetery but with all the snow it was impossible. Hard to believe my Mom has been gone two years now - I miss her more than ever.
I talked to Ava last night and my sweetie has another ear infection...hope she is feeling better today!
