Fun in the sun….sad to go!

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.

Summer lovin’

We are having such a fun time at Granny and Poppy’s house!  One day we went to an indoor play area that we had never been to.  It was fun!  We also paid a visit to the Naval Air Museum which we always enjoy.  We went to the art museum to see a Lego exhibit–check out those huge Lego sculptures!  One day we had an idea of going to collect seashells on the beach.  The plan was NOT to get wet so Mommy did not pack our swim stuff.  Needless to say when we saw the water we didn’t care that we were in our clothes!  We had a great time splashing around in our clothes and will definitely go back to the beach another day this week.  We have eaten out at a fun restaurant or just one that Mommy really likes every day and of course, we have been to Krispy Kreme more than once :)  Kitt asked Poppy out on a date and they had so much fun dressing up, eating chips and cheese dip and then getting milkshakes.  Kitt and Garet have been wanting to fly kites so we decided to do it here.  As long as they were running the kites were flying but hopefully there will be a day with more wind while we are here.  We are looking forward to another fun week here in Florida!

Hello from Florida

We had a fun week again that involved Kitt and Garet going to puppet camp every day. Of course, we also got to go to the pool a couple of times and got to spend some time with Aunt Kristen. On Saturday all three of us went with Aunt Kristen and Mommy to see The Little Mermaid on the stage at the Fox! It was lots of fun. Right after that show Daddy drove us down to Florida for a two week visit with Granny and Poppy. Daddy had to go back home but we are looking forward to the time with Granny and Poppy. We were excited to see Auntie Kristin today. After getting in so late last night Mommy was hoping we would sleep late–we had other plans!!! Today we played with all the toys Granny has for us and then went swimming at the neighbor’s pool. We went to bed right on time and Mommy is hoping for a good sleep so we are ready for lots of fun and adventures this week. See you next week!

Fourth of July Festivities

We hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July! We sure did and stayed busy all week. Kitt and Garet went to gymnastics camp every day for some fun mornings. We had a few fun play dates and also got to spend a whole afternoon with Nanny–we had not seen her in a while! On Wednesday night Mommy took us to a festival at a local church where we got our faces painted, ate some yummy food, went on a carriage ride with mules and had a great time! Friday, of course, was the 4th of July. We decorated our wagon for the neighborhood parade and guess what? We won! We got a big trophy that is on our fireplace mantle downstairs! It was lots of fun and then we went with Mommy and Daddy to the airport to ride the train and play down there. We did sparklers at night but it gets dark here a little too late so it was still light when we did them!  We didn’t know the difference and still had fun!  We got to go swimming again now that Kitt’s stitches are just about healed and also went to Daddy’s office today to play there.  We are glad that Aunt and Kristen and Uncle Mark are back in the country and we were very happy to see them!  We have some fun things planned for this week and will be writing next week from Florida!

Phew…what a week!

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

Birthdays, Swimming, Summer!

We had several fun adventures this week! All three of us went to morning camp at MDO three days which was a lot of fun. We got library cards this week and also went to a fun magic show at the library. Kitt and Garet got their hair braided which they love and mommy loves all the time it saves her. On Friday, Ms. Adams came over for a swim play date! It started thundering so we had to leave the pool but we came home and all watched a movie. Wednesday was Daddy’s birthday and even though he was out of town we celebrated late. Mommy made a cake and he chose to celebrate in Sautee. On Saturday we went to Sautee for a picnic, swim time at the pool, play time at the playground and a trip to the Gourd Store.  We sure are loving summer and all of the new things and activities that come along with summer. We hope you are having a fun summer, too!

Another fun week for you girls – every day is filled with fun activities. I would have liked to have been with you at the Gourd Shop. I have been there, and I know it has unique items; however, I don’t remember seeing the gourd puzzle. It looks like you figured out how to put it together. Kitt, I think Pooh is in need of a bath because I saw him in a lot of pictures – probably fell on the ground a few times. You girls are wearing some very stylish summer outfits that I haven’t seen before – nice and cool for the hot days. A package from Granny should be arriving today so I hope you like what’s inside. I know your mommy has another exciting week planned for you so I await some great pictures in your next blog. Have fun, and I am sending you lots of love and kisses. Granny

Hot, hot, hot….and Father’s Day!

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
