What another fun and busy week for all of us! We went with Granny, Poppy and Mommy to the zoo near Pensacola which was a lot of fun. We got to feed the animals, ride the train, and walk all over the whole zoo. There are lots of fun pictures and even a video from that trip. That was Ryan’s first time ever at a zoo and we didn’t get a picture of her there–guess we will have to go back! That same day we also went to a splash park which was fun, too. We had our last swim lesson and even got some goggles to use in the pool. Ryan had her 3-month birthday already and she is so big! She is trying to sit up some on her own and is almost rolling over. She sure seems to want to be moving to keep up with her sisters! The only disappointing news of the week is that we had to leave Granny and Poppy’s house. Saturday morning when Mommy told us we were going home, Kitt said, “We are home!” We sure did make ourselves at home while we were there and will miss them greatly. We are all so glad that we get to spend so much time with Granny and Poppy and know these will be very special memories as we get older. Until we can truly appreciate these times, we like all the extra attention, special treats, time with Poppy’s iPad, extra time being held for Ryan, wearing Granny’s dancing shoes and lots of other things that Mommy is probably forgetting. We got home on Saturday and the very next day we went to Addie’s birthday party. You will remember that Addie was in the NICU at the same time as Kitt and Garet so she is by far our first friend. It was also at a splash park which Kitt and Garet loved. This was the first birthday party Ryan had ever attended so we were sure to get a picture of her there. We hope you have a great week. We hope to have some fun pictures to share with you next week, too!
Hi girls! It sure has been quiet here at Granny and Poppy’s house since you left for your home yesterday. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed having you visit with us these past 3 weeks. It’s just not the same in the morning without hearing Garet ask “Where did Feist go?” Kitt, I miss seeing the tall towers you loved building with the blocks while all the time holding Bear in your arms. And Ryan, I miss seeing your sweet smile. Poppy can’t remember the last time he had so much fun going to parks, museums, the zoo, riding the escalators and just spending time with you. And didn’t your Mommy do a great job with this week’s blog! I loved seeing all the photos and watching the video of Garet singing her ABC’s and Granny feeding the colorful birds at the zoo. It also looks like you didn’t waste any time getting back into the swing of things once you arrived back at your home. It appears that you had a great time at Addie’s birthday party. The splash park looked like lots of fun and there were even lots of things for you to climb. Well, I’d better say bye for now. Poppy hopes you have another fun week and will be thinking of you and missing you. Lots of love to you all!!! …Poppy
Where to start? You all had such an exciting week. And Kitt, please don’t be confused. Just think that you have two homes! Garet, you certainly know your ABCs. What an entertainer you are with your song and dance routine. So Ryan, I see you are already receiving telephone calls. Perhaps I will call you soon. Hope you enjoyed your Birthday party.
Please tell Mommy that I loved all of the pictures on the blog. In particular, the visit at the zoo looked like great fun. I can’t wait for you all to come visit the Bronx Zoo. But, we have to wait for Ryan to grow up a bit.
Love you all very much!
There are so many wonderful photos in this blog post. Kitt, did Bear really get to go to the zoo? How fun! Garet, you look like you’re doing a really good job climbing that chain thing at the playground! And Ryan, you get more beautiful each day — just like your sisters. That picture of you with all the soap suds is precious. Glad everyone had a great time in Pensacola. Did you get to go to the beach, too? Nicole (Aunt Kristen’s friend)
Beautiful photos and one of the best blog posts ever (though it’s so hard to choose)! I love and miss you all tons!
It has been a rainy and “blue” Monday around here. Our house is just too quiet – I keep listening for a baby to cry or someone to run through the house giggling! I just miss you all so much! We did so much yet there are some things we didn’t get to do so will have to wait until next visit. It was good you had Addie’s party to attend on Sunday so you wouldn’t be continually asking your Mommy and Daddy where Granny and Poppy were! As always, I loved all your pictures and your videos. I understand tomorrow will begin another try at “potty training” so I hope it goes well. Remember, girls, how much Granny loves you and misses you and prays for you every day. Granny
