Hello from “The Sunshine State” (sunny????)

We are having such a great time in Florida, but unfortunately, it has been anything but sunny! Actually, we take that back. The weather was beautiful when we first arrived, but on Thursday night it started raining and it hasn’t stopped! In fact, Poppy estimates it has rained about 12 inches since Thursday! While we are still having fun, all that rain can really interfere with our swimming schedule. Don’t worry about us though–we have still been keeping very, very busy. Auntie Kristin has been over a lot playing with us and helping out our Mommy. At the beginning of the week, we did spend a lot of time at the pool and we are all impressing everyone with how great we have gotten in the pool. Speaking of impressing everyone, Ryan has made great strides this week! She is crawling all over the place, has learned to climb the stairs, has learned to pull up on furniture and is cruising all around the furniture. She even tried to take a step on her own tonight, but she fell! She also said “Poppy” which got lots of claps for her.  On Thursday, Kitt and Garet went with Mommy, Daddy and Poppy to a 4th of July festival where we got our faces painted, rode ponies, and played in bounce houses. It was a lot of fun! That night we all played with sparklers which was something new for us. Later in the week, Daddy and Aunt Kristen arrived and we have had lots of fun with them here. Aunt Kristen has been playing all kinds of games with us, and Daddy has spent lots of time with us at parks (when the rain stopped) and in the covered play area at the school right next door.  Poppy and Mommy took Kitt and Garet to the Naval Air Station which we loved.  Despite having been there every year since we were born, we were so excited to be at the museum and see all the planes.  It was so busy but we had fun!  Poppy was excited to show us the plane that he used to fly in; we also got to see an IMAX movie while we were there.  We all went to lunch at McGuire’s which was a bit of an ordeal but the atmosphere was fun!  As you can imagine we have been playing very hard but are enjoying ourselves a whole lot.  Hopefully this week will bring some more sunshine, but we will see!
