Happy Wednesday Everyone.......

We are in Suffolk, Virginia visiting with Chris, Jennifer, and of course Ayden...... Oh the time is just flying by too fast for this Nana...... Our trip to get here went well last Thursday night. We chose a late night flight and Chris picked us up at the airport then dropped us by the house as he had duty at the ship. (navy) Boy was Ayden surprised to see Nana and Papa asleep the next morning at his house. So we were awaken by his jumping in bed with us! LOL. And it's been non stop with us ever since..... We took Ayden to a children's museum on Friday which he loved while Chris worked. Then Chris joined us downtown for a late lunch at a little pub. On Saturday morning we met Jenn for a 10K she ran in and she came in second in her age class! It was fun going in the little shops in the downtown area of Portsmouth. On the way home Chris took Bob and I by the naval base at Norfolk so we could shop at the Naval Exchange. I sure miss those! And wow was this a nice one. So I bought some early Christmas presents! I can now officially say I've started my Christmas shopping. I think I'll be visiting UPS to get all this home! sigh. He also drove us past all the naval piers so Bob could see how things had updated and changed since he was stationed here years ago when he was in the navy. Sunday was just a LAZY day for us..... Bob and Chris played golf. I think the BUG has BITTEN Bob.... We will see..... He thinks so... But....I'm not convinced for sure yet... We will see if it ends up in the garage along beside the bowflex and gets spider webs too..... LOL. Monday, Chris had to return back to work so we went to Williamsburg shopping. First we went to the Williamsburg Pottery Factory. I've not been there since the MID 80's. It's grown huge since then. I went straight to the FLOWER section... Of course always thinking about card making. LOL. I hit a bargain too. Walked away with a HUGE bag of silk flowers... I was happy happy happy! Then on to a clothes outlet too that day. Again buying more Christmas presents! Bob found things for our new grandbaby that is on the way this time..... It was fun buying for a newborn again! Makes you realize how much Ayden has grown! Tuesday morning Ayden returned to preschool! He's studying the letter "A" this week. So he painted with and APPLE yesterday to bring home! And he could hardly WAIT to dump out his backpack and show us a little acorn that was hiding in the bottom of it! LOL. Jenn and I had 3 hours to shop without a little boy! Bob and Chris played 18 holes of golf all afternoon. And I think Bob came home READY FOR BED! LOL. He was worn out! Well, today is another day...... Ayden will be going to school again today in a little while..... Happy Wednesday everyone.... I think I've caught you up on our stay while here in Virginia so far...
