Father's Day With Grandpa
We had a very laid back Father's Day weekend, because Mike was out of town and did not get home until Sunday evening. On Monday we loaded up the girls and headed to Grandpa's house to celebrate a late Father's Day with him. We grilled a tenderloin, baked an apple pie and had a great evening together. On Tuesday, we all went out for breakfast. Then, Mike helped Grandpa do a few things around the house. After lunch, we loaded up the girls and went to Marineland. After driving by the place for the last 15 years, it was neat to finally get a chance to see it. It is located directly on the beach, and in the past was all about dolphin shows, but these days they claim to be a research center. Not sure what kind of research they do, but they keep pretty busy offering several different levels of interactions with the 13 dolphins they have. We could only afford the feed and touch, which was the cheapest interaction. For five minutes you get to go into the pool area with about five other people and touch and feed the dolphins, of course. It was quick, but a fun way to spend the afternoon.
