Nana and GJ's visit

This past weekend Grammy Jane (GJ) and Nana flew down for a quick visit. The girls couldn't have been more thrilled. It's been 4 years since Nana came down and GJ's last visit was this spring. Friday night we had a dinner picnic with the kids out back.

The kids ate:

And the adults had happy hour:
Here's Nana kickin' it, if the Reds were playing there would be a transistor radio in this shot:

Even Tom-tom loved the picnic. He's a baked bean and sweet potato fry addict.

Because we live in the tropics, we're used to the Florida wildlife: lizards, geccos, palmetto bugs cockroaches, snakes, and...monkeys:

One even let me get close enough to snap this:

Here's Kher-bear filing away GJ's pearls for future use:

And mama's BIG HELPER Elle-belly putting Tom-T's bib back on for the 57th time:

The tourguides thought it would be a great idea to take GJ and Nana on the downtown looper to give them a glimpse of Saint Petersburg's finer areas, being that it's air conditioned and there was little walking involved...

Wait, what's that? The weather is so nice they decided to make it open-air? You can only imagine what Nana's saying here while worrying about who is going to back-comb her hair afterwards:

Cloud 9 with GJ, I can't stop looking at the confused lad and lass behind them:

We all had such a great time and wish we could have had a few more days together. Here are links to some of the recipes we cooked up:
Almond Spinach Salad
Barefoot Contessa's Engagement Chicken
Croque Monsieur

And lastly, I'll leave you with this shot of the sillies:

Love to all!!!
