We had such a wonderful week in Pensacola at Granny and Poppy’s! It rained the first couple of days we were there but that didn’t stop us. We went to the Naval Air Museum, the children’s museum, swimming at an indoor pool, the park several times, a restaurant with a beach/playground, McGuire’s Irish Pub, Krispy Kreme (more than once), a restaurant where you get to make your own pizza, the Bluffs, an Easter egg hunt, a birthday party and had lots of fun and laughs at Granny and Poppy’s! In fact, the picture of Kitt on Daddy’s shoulders was even in the online edition of the Pensacola News Journal! Daddy came down on Friday for some weekend fun and then to drive us home. We were so glad that Aunt Kristen stayed the whole week, too so we saw lots of her and Uncle Mark. Also, we got to see lots of Auntie Kristin! We were so sad to have to leave. At some point, Kitt, Garet and Mommy were all crying saying they didn’t want to go home! Even when we pulled into the driveway Kitt cried that she wanted to go back. We sure do love our Granny and Poppy and getting to spend time with them in Florida. It will hardly be a month before they come to see us for Ryan’s birthday though. This week should be good as we get back to all of our normal activities. Enjoy all of the fun pics from the week!
Poppy is so happy that all of you were able to spend your sping break at Poppy and Granny’s house. I loved every minute that you were here and love you all very, very much. I’m looking forward to seeing you all again for Ryan’s birthday. Love you lots! …Poppy
I awoke this a.m. thinking I heard the voices of little girls; but, alas, it was wishful thinking on my part. I had a great week and miss you so, but I still have you with me as I can’t seem to get the sand out of my washing machine. I was so thankful to discover this morning that despite all the Krispy Kreme doughnuts and the meals we ate out I didn’t gain any weight!! Kitt, your doll Dorothy’s apron looks adorable with your yellow dress. It was truly a great week with not only you but also Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark. I can hardly wait until our next visit to your house for Ryan’s birthday. Love you to the moon and stars and back. Granny
This was a pretty normal week with a couple of extra things! Mommy and Ryan went to the Atlanta History Center and enjoyed seeing the exhibit on the Atlanta Olympics. We also went for a play date with Ryan’s friend, Ophelia. Kitt and Garet also started back at swim lessons with Miss Michelle. Ryan got in, too, but really liked sitting on the edge getting Mommy wet. Of course, after swim we went over to Aunt Kristen’s house for pizza and to take a bath in her huge tub! Uncle Mark is in town now so we always enjoy seeing him, too. Mommy had to do some work at another consignment sale so Uncle Mark and Aunt Kristen spent all day Friday here. We did have two really fun birthday parties this weekend for some of Kitt and Garet’s friends. Of course, Ryan came along, too! Saturday was A.J.’s party at Hippo Hopp, and Sunday was Castalia’s party at the bowling alley. We continue to enjoy the warmer days and the extra daylight by going for walks after dinner when we have time. We hope your week was as exciting as ours!
It is obvious you had more fun this week than I did – two parties in two days – way to go. I am glad you have returned to swimming as I know how much you enjoy that, and now Ryan gets into the action. What’s up with Ryan in a hat? I guess she has seen Kitt a few times with hats so she is just getting into a spring thing!!! I was happy to hear Uncle Mark is in town. He loves you girls as much as you love him. Did you girls knock down a lot of pins while bowling? Of course, Hippo Hop would be Garet’s all time favorite for a birthday party. Have another great week, and I’ll be checking in to your blog next week. Love and kisses. Granny
We are so glad that the weather is getting warmer as we get to spend more time outside. We were also glad for the extra day light tonight as we got to play outside AFTER dinner! On Monday, we got to celebrate Granny’s birthday with her which was lots of fun. We went out to dinner and then helped her blow out her candles in some delicious cake. On Tuesday Granny and Poppy had to go home. Several times, one of us asked where they were or said we were going to go look for them. It’s always hard when they leave (for us and Mommy, too) but we love getting to see them as often as we do. In fact we will see them again next month! This week was Dr. Seuss week at Kitt and Garet’s school so each day they did something different. One day was crazy hat day and one day was Wacky Wednesday–there are pictures from both of those days. On Wednesday, Mommy and Ryan came in to read a story and share some special Cat in the Hat Cookies with the class and guess what? Mommy was dressed up as the Cat in the Hat! Mommy said that Garet’s face was priceless when she walked in because she was so surprised. On Thursday Mommy and Ryan went to Fernbank to see some new things. Ryan seemed to have fun but Mommy was most excited that she walked around the rest of the day saying “I see dinosaurs; I see alligators.” You might remember that Mommy loves dinosaurs! Saturday was Touch a Truck day in downtown Decatur so we saw lots of trucks and got to sit in the driver’s seat of several, including the big red fire truck. Sunday was another beautiful say so we went to Piedmont Park to play, feed the ducks and also have lunch. Aunt Kristen joined us for some play time, lunch and then we went back to her apartment to play. WOW! What a week–we wonder what adventures this week has in store for us.
What a fun blog you wrote this week with so many pictures. You obviously had a fun week starting with my birthday. I was so happy to spend it with my three favorite granddaughters! I know Dr. Seuss week was going to be a busy one, and I so wish I could have seen everyone in the class when your mommy arrived as the Cat in the Hat. Ryan, I see you carrying a doll with blonde hair. I can’t imagine any doll replacing the balding Scout! What a great idea your dad had to set up the camping tent and then having a picnic lunch. You girls are truly blessed to have parents and Aunt Kristen who want to expose you to a multitude of fun and interesting things to do. By the way, Kitt, I love your sunglasses. I look forward to reading about this week’s adventures in your next blog. Love, kisses and hugs are coming your way. Granny
