On to Jacksonville, FL

From Savannah, we headed down to Jacksonville, FL, to visit the grandkids, as that is the main reason for our trip!  We brought them down Christmas gifts...it was nice to be able to actually see them open them instead of mailing them down like we normally do!  The next day we picked them up and took them to one of our favorite places....the ZOO!!!!  I love the zoo!  :)

I promise I won't post a million pics of my ugly mug, but hey, I need one of me with the grandkids, right?  From left to right is Mercedes, Grace, Grandma, and Andy. 

This is my favorite picture of Grandpa and Grace:

A very rare photo of all of them looking at me and smiling at the same time!  It felt like a small miracle!

And my favorite thing about the zoo, other than the grandkids, is always the Larakeets!  They are the sweetest little birds, and I could just look at them all day with their gorgeous plummage!

Tomorrow I'll post St. Augustine, Florida.  What a gorgeous city!  And we stopped at two bakeries, so I have cute pictures of those to share as well!

Wow, Bea, that card took a long time to get to you! I mailed it in the middle of December. But I'm glad it got there! Happy New Year to you as well!!!! :)
