The first thing Violet always wants to do when visiting her grandparents in Florida is pick fruit. This visit the carambola (starfruit) was ripe for the picking so Violet went happily to work.

Violet also harvested a bowlful of greens from grandaddy’s new garden.

Archer helped water. He used the phrases “grandma and grandma” and “grandpa and grandpa” several times during the trip. Next time he’ll have it down.

Grandma and Grandaddy have a friend that lives next to a modern day menagerie. Violet collected this bouquet of feathers while touring the grounds.

We stopped by “the locks” on the way back home.

One morning in Ft. Myers we visited Manatee Park and saw dozens of the sea cows. During our visit there was big ruckus in the water with lots of sloshing afterwards. Ben thought a manatee leapt up and did a belly flop when we weren’t looking but I think it was the herd being startled. Lots of interesting educational posters like the one above peppered the park.

The kids favorite memory of the Alva portion of our trip was roasting marshmallows and making s’mores. The spent lots of time playing in the sand. I enjoyed chatting with family. My sister’s baby is talking now! My brother announced he and his wife are expecting a BOY and we are all so very excited about that. Here’s a video they made of their parents finding out about the pregnancy.
