It wasn't for very long, but we for sure tried to make the most of the little time we had to spend with Granddad! He'd been hospitalized since the Wednesday prior to our leaving to head to Florida. He was diagnosed with viral pneumonia. And he is now telling us he has a new respect for the disease!! It was some BAD stuff!! He was in the hospital for 9 days!!
And even though I know he was weak, and still had pain with any deep breaths or any exertion, he STILL wanted to spend all the time he could with his grand girlies!
And scroll back up to that first picture. As I mentioned, I always take plenty of "activities" when we travel, both for me and for the girls. We were there for a week, but man did time fly when we realized it was already time to go home.
So, we all met out in the driveway for a photo shoot. You KNOW I am not gonna let this opportunity pass.
I had Todd take a pic with his parents all alone, since this is really a rare photo. Good looking crew, huh?! Who'd have known Larry had just gotten home from the hospital the night before?! and I am going to seriously miss DeeDee's taking my girls to walk the cats in a cat stroller and go feed the ducks! They liked that more than Disney. In fact, Ellie would ask every day to go home to leave the parks to go home and walk the cats!
And then, of course, the girls got in on that family photo action.
Well, sadly, it was time to say goodbye!
Until next time, thanks for a great vacation and lots and lots of good memories.
