2-7 July 2010 in Florida

This has been a great week.  The grandchildren were really excited to be here.  There is a park less than two blocks away from the house that has a playground and a beach.  The beach is on the bay rather than the ocean so it is only a little salty.  It nice and sandy and slopes gently out so it's a great place for the kids and we can just walk down there.  Harley had a swim there with the kids.  Gretchen and Willy opted to stay home and nap.

On the 4th of July, we walked down to one of the main roads about 4 blocks away and watched an old fashioned 4th of July parade complete with floats, fire engines, politicians, candy throwing, and bands.  It was hot but we all had fun anyway.  That night we walked down just past the park and out onto the bridge over the bay to see the fireworks.  We had a great view, didn't have to worry about parking, and had a short walk home.  Everyone was ready for bed by the time we got there.

We have also been down to St Andrews State Park, Panama City Beach and the mall so it has been a busy week.



It has been an absolutely great visit but I promised to head up to Michigan to help out with some family things   so I'll be off tomorrow.  The grandchildren are signed up for swimming lessons for the rest of the summer and I know they are going to be busy and have lots of fun.
