I volunteered to drive my grandparents down to their house in Florida where they winter at, and after a little convincing, my grandma decided that she would take me up on it!
We spent a LONG time in the car together….
And for parts of the trip my company looked like this 🙂
I was so excited when we got down South and we stopped at Chick-fil-a for lunch! I definitely wish we had CFA here in MN! (and yes I have been to the one in the airport here…but let me just say that is NOT convenient to stop by for lunch!)
I just LOVE their waffle fries!
We had a lot of unexpected things go wrong once we got down to Florida and most of our time during the day was spent fixing those (new stove, kitchen faucet, car door fixed, etc…)
But at night we made time for some fun! I absolutely love to play shuffleboard and my grandma and I met up with their friends Bob and Barb for some competition! Bob and I ended up beating Barb and grandma the first game, and they won the second.
One of my other favorite ‘Southern’ things is Sonic! We have a few up here, but they are quite a drive away so I always take advantage of having a Sonic minutes from the house! I didn’t get my favorite sweet potato tater tots, but enjoyed a Powerade slush (during happy hour of course!)
On the morning that I had to fly out, we played a quick 9 holes of golf and I enjoyed the sunshine so much!
Grandma and Grandpa love to play golf and play pretty much every day year round. I pretty much only play when I am with them, but always wonder why I don’t play more because I really enjoy it!
Grandma is pretty much pro, and her short game is phenomenal!
I loved spending time with my grandparents and was so sad to leave. Grandma and I have a special relationship and I look forward to seeing them again soon!
