Traffic was a bit heavy, but tolerable, and we made it to Jacksonville without any bad incidents, (praise God!). But when we got to Jax, we encountered a bit of a disappointment; the Jollibee restaurant that was supposed to be opening "soon" a couple months ago still isn't open yet. Phooey!

We checked into our hotel room on Mayport, (just down the street from Fleet Landing), and the boys immediately went into their old established behavior patterns:
|Dodong and Kuya doing what they usually do|
Do kids these days do anything besides play with their electronic gadgets?
Sweetie and Grump were happy the long drive was over.

Grandma and Grandpa stopped by the hotel for a quick visit ......

...... then we all went to the California Pizza Kitchen at St. John's Mall for a very yummy, very early dinner.

Afterwards we walked around the mall a bit.

Soon we were tired, so it was back to the hotel room for an early bedtime.
