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.
