ok.. so the end of the day at BGT and on our way down to Sarasota/ Venice to visit for Thanksgiving. Desperate for some contacts (Pamela's prescription needed filling and we had no luck!) We came across this sign which made us think of Sean's godson TFAO & his mom, who, along with other moms might appreciate it. We found it in Brandon, FL.   =)

something for the godson & family
