Florida Trip with Mikey Day 2

Before leaving St. Pete we visited Bay Pines Veteran’s Hospital and Cemetary to see Mikey’s grandfather. This is a nice monument there dedicated to those who served.

Moi in the wonderful Haslem’s new and used bookstore. It’s so cool in there. I want to live in one of the aisles. Here is me with all the fairy books. (I got to take a couple home!)

Our next stop was Tampa, and we made a beeline for Meg’s house. Here, Mikey bonds with her daughter Katelyn through TICKLE FIGHTING.

Brendon arrived not too much later, and engaged in the Katelyn poking.

Went to my grandparents’ for Passover–and for the first time I could ever remember, I was the youngest present and got to read the four questions!

Enjoying the paperweight

I brought a chiffon cake made with matzo meal (safe for Passover) and we decorated it with candles for my grandpa’s birthday, which had only been the day before!
