We have had such a wonderful time in Florida with Granny and Poppy and are already so sad to be getting ready to go home. We did lots of new and exciting things this trip which was fun. On Monday we went out to the beach to see Granny’s cousin and her family (Sheila, Doug and Caitlin). It was so much fun as we went swimming, played in the sand, ate and jumped in the waves. One night we went to see the Pensacola Blue Wahoos play–that’s the minor league baseball team. We had never done that and we really enjoyed it. Mommy was worried we would be bored but the love of baseball must be in our blood as we had a great time dancing, eating and even watching the game. After the game they had fireworks which we loved! On Thursday Poppy and Mommy took us to Mobile, Al to go to a new museum called the Exploreum which was great. It was well worth the drive as we had a wonderful time. We were also excited to spend some time with Aunt Joan. Ryan had never met her and she had not seen Kitt and Garet in a few years. Her visit included us taking another trip out to the beach to see Sheila and Doug which we loved just as much the second time. In fact, Garet even asked where she was sleeping! Mommy and Auntie Kristin took us on a big boat for a dolphin cruise–it was lots of fun and we got to see several dolphins. The guide told us we might even see a mermaid so imagine our disappointment when we did not see one. No trip to Pensacola would be complete without a meal at McGuire’s so we did that after the cruise. Finally, we went with Daddy, Poppy, Mommy and Uncle Mark to the Naval Air Museum and also to Ft. Barancas. We always love the planes at the museum and the fort was a fun new experience for us. We are so glad to have such wonderful grandparents who love us very much and help create such special memories every time they see us. This trip was no exception! We also appreciate (as does Mommy) how much they do for Mommy while we are here, too. The time passed too quickly and we are all sad to go home but look forward to special visitors at our house this week and also look forward to seeing Granny and Poppy again soon.
What a fun filled two weeks I had with you girls. We were on the go all the time, and it was wonderful. There was no one at my bed early this morning asking for donuts so I am wondering if you woke your mommy up asking her for donuts! All your pictures on the blog are terrific – I loved every one of them. I know you are going to start right in keeping busy by going to MDO three times this week with your friend Calvin. His mommy is one of your mommy’s best friends. Miss Lisa said she is sorry she couldn’t hug you good-bye, but she said you can always swim in her pool. Have a great week, and remember I love you to the moon, to the sun and to the stars.
Wow! This was a fun, busy and crazy week. Kitt and Garet had ballet camp every afternoon which they loved. It culminated in a little “recital” on Friday and there is a little video from that day at the end of this post. On Monday, we went to Hippo Hopp to play. Of course, we had a good time as always and especially because it wasn’t that busy. On Monday night, Mommy had a meeting so Daddy helped us pick some flowers and put them in a vase for Mommy. We went to a music class with Ms. Wendy which we always love. Of course we had a few days at the pool in there as well. On Thursday we went to Hippo Hopp again this time with A.J. and Joyce but Kitt slipped and fell landing us in the ER for a few hours to get stitches. Thankfully Karol and Annabette were able to come over and stay with Garet and Ryan while Mommy took Kitt to the hospital. She had to get three stitches but sure was brave! On Friday we went bowling with Thomas, Charlotte and their mommy, Erin. As you can see we are very confident bowlers! Friday afternoon was the ballet recital and we were supposed to dress like princesses. Kitt dressed as Elsa (as did Ryan) and Garet dressed like Anna. On Saturday, we had music class and then got to meet one of Mommy’s friends, Erin, who moved away before getting to meet us. We went to a park for play time and a picnic. Saturday evening was a members event at the Zoo. It was awfully crowded but we still managed to have a great time! On Sunday Mommy took us to the Atlanta History Center to see what we could see there. What a fun place! We will go there again sometime soon. Minus the ER trip, we hope your week was as great as ours!
What a fantastic week you girls had. I was truly sad to hear about Kitt’s stitches but know they will heal quickly. Your mom and dad can find the greatest outings for you girls. You are blessed to have a mom and dad who want to give you these exciting, educational and fun-filled adventures. Your ballet recital was awesome – only wish I could have been there to see it. The princess outfits you three have been wearing are beautiful. So…what fun things are in store for you this week? With the holiday approaching this week, I am sure there is something special on your calendar! I am sending you love and prayers. Granny
What a week! On Monday we had two play dates. The first was with Thomas and Charlotte and the second was with Ms. White, one of Kitt and Garet’s teachers from Coralwood. Both were fun, of course! We got to see Aunt Kristen a few times this week and did a lot of playing. Kitt and Garet went to art camp two days and we all went to a music class with Ms. Wendy. Kitt and Garet had their weekly reading class and music class, too. On Friday Mommy took us to Macon to spend the day with Aunt LeAnn, Parker and Patrick. Even Uncle Barry joined in the fun for a trip to the pool. Their pool is super fun with a great kiddie play area and also a really fun water slide. All three of us did it several times but Mommy only got a picture of Kitt sliding down. We also went to the peach farm. We had some yummy peach ice cream and got a lot of peaches to bring home with us. On Saturday, we had a really fun event with the Multiples Club. There were people who did a fun bubble show and then there were food trucks with yummy tacos, quesadillas and the best snow cones ever! Finally, today was Father’s Day. We had a picnic at Emory and saw the room where Mommy and Daddy had their party after their wedding. We rode bikes and played with bubbles there, too. After that we went to the pool for an evening swim and another picnic. Today we are so thankful for our Daddy and had fun celebrating him. We also got to Skype with Poppy to show him his present and wish him a wonderful Father’s Day. We had a wonderful week and hope you did as well.
What three gorgeous Georgia peaches you girls are! I am envious that I wasn’t there to pick peaches for I love peaches, and poppy can’t eat them! As always, you had such a fun filled week – doing something exciting every day. It was fun Skyping with you on Father’s Day. I love those new Frozen nightgowns Aunt Kristen bought you. You were right, Kitt, when you said Aunt Kristen bought them for you because she knew you would “love them!” So many people truly love you girls. I am glad to hear you made your dad feel special on Father’s Day. I can hardly wait for the mailman to deliver Poppy’s Father’s Day gift from you. Have fun at MDO, and I will anxiously await next week’s blog. Love you to the moon, to the sun and to the stars and back!!!! Granny
