Green Cove Springs, FL and Road Trip

We have had a very exciting summer. Our grandchildren, Amber and Emma have been with us for 6 weeks now. We are now in Dallas, TX delivering the children home for a week before taking off on another great adventure to the Far West USA. Working our way back in time, we stopped in McGehee, Arkansas to visit with Wilma's sister, Betty, her husband Tom and their grandson Jax and their new addition Grant (the dog). Pictured below is from left to right.

Amber & Grant, Sara & Jax and Emma.

Before going to McGehee, we stopped in Yazoo City, Mississippi to visit Wilma's parents. The girls loved harvesting the garden with Mamaw and Papaw (their Great Grandparents).

We packed up from Green Cove Springs after getting the boat settled and enjoying the fresh spring pool in Green Cove. Emma was very happy to be heading to see Mom and Dad.
Amber shared her seat with Sarasota, our 9 yr old canine daughter.

Before we left for our road trip, we (the girls) took a day out to the beauty shop and had "do" and manicures and pedicures.

The day out was a must as we had been very busy catching
Sand Perch, seeing dolphins, and catching sail catfish.

Emma even caught a pinfish and gave it to Grandpa Wink who put it on a big pole and caught a bonnethead shark just before sunset one evening. Strange though, the girls didn't want to go swimming after seeing a shark caught.

Grandma and Emma finally got a day with Breakfast in Bed after many weeks of serving Amber and Grandpa breakfast in bed.
We only got this treat because we went on strike from all work..............
