My granddaughter went immediately to bed after we had lunch. My grandson was in the pool and later we went to the beach at Sharky's and found shells then to the South Jetty to watch dolphins. We checked on granddaughter a couple of times to make sure that she was still breathing. Her approach to getting up for 4:30 a.m. was to stay awake all night so I understand her need to catch up on sleep.
Grandson has strict adherence to bedtime--a marvelous side benefit to his mathematical/logical order mind.
Today, we went to Nokomis Beach. The water is about body temperature. It was pretty choppy today, so we got bashed around in the waves. Fun! After supper--they wanted to go in the pool. We will all be waterlogged at the end of this adventure. There was no way I could interest them in building a sand castle.
Tomorrow we plan to go to the aquarium with a stop on the way back at Siesta Key. It is a very popular beach, on the America's Top Ten kind of thing. It is not my favorite--for one thing way too crowded, but they will be able to say that they went there.
He had a bandaid on his nose because of a tiny little scratch. No he has a white bandaid-shaped patch on his face.
There have been a few near melt-downs from over tiredness and a few sibling squabbles. I bought myself a bottle of wine and have extended my own bedtime so I can relax and enjoy a sip. I hope they are having fun.
