Monday was a holiday so we all went up to Sautee for the day. We went to the big pool there, but the water was FREEZING! Kitt and Garet swam for a little while but Ryan did not enjoy her first ever swimming trip. We swam, ate lunch, stopped at one of Poppy’s favorite places (Jaemor Farms) and also went to a fun store called “The Gourd Place.” Let’s just say everyone slept well that night. Of course, there was no school for Kitt and Garet this week so we went to Hippo Hopp one day and spent a lot of time playing at parks and going to our neighborhood pool. Luckily, the water was much warmer and Ryan loved it! She put her face in several times and also liked floating on her back. Garet and Kitt both jumped off the diving board for the first time! Garet jumped once, but Kitt loved it so much, she jumped off repeatedly the next day! On Saturday, we all went to the splash park and had a fun time there. We hope you are enjoying some fun in the sun as much as we are. We will see you soon!
This blog should have been entitled “diving into summer!” Kitt and Garet, I am so impressed that you both jumped off the diving board into the water. You have really come a long way since you first started your swimming lessons. And Ryan even you got into the act by floating on your back and putting your face in the water. Poppy is happy that you were able to spend the Memorial Day holiday in Sautee. Did you know that is one of Poppy’s favorite north Georgia towns? I love the little general store there as well as the coffee house. And you even got to stop at Jaemor Farms–my favorite place for buying boiled peanuts!!! It looks like you really had a good time at the Gourd Store too. Those most have been big gourds in order for Kitt and Garet to put them over their heads. And I loved the gourd dolls that looked like a bear and a mouse. Garet, did you bake some cookies this week? They look yummy! And Ryan, were you trying to catch the water at the splash park? I’ll bet you all had fun running in and out of the streams of water. Well, I’ll say bye for now and hope you have another fun filled week. Poppy is excited about seeing you all again at the end of the month and I’ll be looking forward to reading all about your coming weeks activities in your next blog. Love you lots! …Poppy
How much fun to look at your blog in California with Great Aunt Trina looking over my shoulder! You girls had a fantastic week with so many fun activities. Kitt, does Pooh even go to the playground with you? No wonder he smells so bad when I come to visit you! Garet, I’m eager to know what kind of cookies you were baking. Don’t forget how to make them so you can make them for Granny. I’m happy that Ryan is enjoying the pool as much as you girls do. Your mommy is going to be kept mighty busy watching all three of you at the neighborhood pool. It won’t be much longer until you are here – can’t wait. Love you lots, Granny
