Hurricane Irma brings Kennedy back to Hickory

Another fall. Another hurricane alert. Another visit from Brittany and Kennedy as they evacuate Charleston. Just like last year, though, Charleston was spared. Thank goodness!

Love having Baby K at our house!

Kennedy found her mommy's wedding veil.

John and I took her to a Sculpture Celebration one afternoon

Kennedy always looked to see if Papa's boat was still there!

Rainy Days

I usually am not a fan of rain, but how could I not smile looking at the fun Kennedy is having!

Back to Charleston - Times 2!

John and I headed back to Charleston for 4 days in August. Kennedy's daycare was closed on that Monday and Tuesday to get the classrooms set up for the new year.

We hadn't seen her in two months and couldn't believe the difference in her verbal skills!! So much fun interacting now!

On Monday we took her to Summerville to see their Sculpture Park and have a picnic. Kennedy is a dog lover and went to this guy right away!

The next day we went to the Children's Museum of the Low Country. A place she loves and her family has a membership to.

A week later we drove back for 3 days for the total eclipse and kept her out of daycare that Monday. Back to the Children't Museum where they had special exhibits and crafts - sun and moon related - set up for the kids.

Cocoa reading to K :)

I have never met a happier kid - even at bedtime!

This was a big day! Kennedy's 2nd birthday party was the day before, but her actual birthday wasn't until the next Tuesday so we were still celebrating her. But it was also John and my anniversary AND Father's Day!

Dan had to work until mid-afternoon, but Brittany made John bacon and eggs for breakfast and then we four went to church.

Ready to go to James Island Splash Pad

Getting Ready for Kennedy's 2nd Birthday Party

While Kennedy napped after her soccer lesson, we four adults worked as fast as we could decorating the neighborhood clubhouse for her 3 p.m. party. The theme was flamingos and pineapples!

Brittany had bubbles in tiny pineapples and CUTE cookies as favors for the guests.

Kennedy's First Soccer Lesson

John and I were back in Charleston for Kennedy's 2nd birthday. But before her party on Saturday we got to take her to her first soccer lesson.

John was pretty active in the lesson. The kids (and John) hopped across the field. Skipped back. Ran across. Dribbled back.

We wanted to capture this moment just in case she goes on to become a well-known soccer player someday. Or get a college scholarship....

Toward the end the coach put jersey's on them, creating 2 teams and they actually played.

Kennedy didn't really have a clue yet what was going on, but her team won!!
