We had so many new adventures this week and are excited to share them with you! The week was pretty typical with our normal activities. Kitt and Garet did resume gymnastics and Ms. Tawana was so happy to see them and couldn’t believe how much Ryan had grown. Then the weekend came! On Friday night we went with Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark to go the Atlanta BBQ Festival. We had good food and lots of fun! Then Saturday came. We had planned on making a quick trip downtown to meet Doc McStuffins. We all went down to the park where the event was being held only to find out there was about a 5 hour wait to meet Doc!!!! No worries though–we are patient little girls! We had plenty of things to do to stay occupied including going to the children’s museum, having lunch and then going to see the Elmo Live show. Daddy took Ryan home to get a nap while Kitt and Garet stayed with Mommy, Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark for the show. After the show it was our time to meet Doc. We waited so very patiently in the long line only to find out Doc had somewhere else to be. We handled it very well and still enjoyed examining our toys and visiting the Doc Mobile. On Sunday, Kitt and Garet had their very first soccer practice and they were great! We can’t wait to tell you more about soccer as the season goes on. Finally, there is also a picture from school–Garet is marking herself “present” using the smart board. As for Ryan, she is still working on taking steps–any day now, I tell you–any day!
I’m sorry girls that you were unable to meet Doc McStuffin, but you seem to have made the most of all the other activities. Of course, you both look adorable in your Minnie Mouse and Doc McStuffin outfits. I am surprised your mommy let you wear them since they are your Halloween costumes. Kitt, I think maybe you were spitting out the barbeque instead of eating it! You look like your are enjoying practicing soccer. Did your mom tell you she played one season on a soccer team with all boys? I’m glad to see more girls are getting involved in soccer. Granny will be there day after tomorrow so I am anxious to go with you to all your fun activities. No doubt, we will be visiting Mr. Rob’s for cheese dip and chips and also to the nearby market for ice cream cones. Granny did promise to take you to Publix to pick out your favorite ice cream. And, Garet, since there is no Krispy Kreme in Atlanta, do you think we could go to Dunkin Donuts for you to select a doughnut. Ryan, I hope you will begin walking while I’m there! We’ll keep practicing!!!! I’m all packed so I’ll see you soon. Sending you lots of love, kisses and prayers. Granny
