Charleston Through Kennedy's Eyes

John and I got to babysit for Kennedy for 4 days when Brittany and Dan went out of town for their 5th anniversary.

We had so much fun!

We took her to her gymnastics class. Got there right at 11 a.m. and ran her up to the group that looked like her age group (3-5) - but she clung to me and said she wanted to go home.
SO, I took the class with her - all the stretches, all the jumping on the trampoline, the handstands against the wall, etc.

As I was in line with her a little girl in front of me said, “You’re really really old! My grandpa was so old he died!”

Worse! When talking to Brittany later I found out her class was at 10 a.m NOT 11 and if K had been with all her regulars she might have been comfortable enough so I could have sat out with all the other parents and not had my ego hurt by that kid!!!

We also played soccer with her in the yard, colored, danced, went to a Latin Festival and most fun of all; to a Princess Tea -

For the third year in a row, Charleston has had mandatory evacuation due to a hurricane. The first two times, our daughter Brittany and our grand-daughter Kennedy came to stay with us. This year however it looked like we might get some of the bad weather too. So, we all went to Florida!

My father-in-law has a house in Melbourne and a condo in Cocoa Beach. He's been having a few health issues lately, so my husband went to the house to stay with him while Brittany, Kennedy and I had a girls' long weekend in the condo.

It was wonderful! We searched for the best shells on the beach, swam in the pool, and one day even went to Disney World!

Sunday, Fun Day! Hickory Visit

Kennedy loved watching Papa play the keyboard at church this morning! Brittany and I both snickered though when half way through the sermon she said out loud, "The End!"

We walked over to the church's Parable Garden to see the hens  (or "First Ladies") after the service.

Next we packed a lunch and went out on the boat until they had to leave mid-afternoon. Too soon!

Short, But Perfect Hickory Visit

Brittany had a wedding invite last weekend for a venue about an hour and a half from here, so spent the night at our house. She brought Kennedy along to play with Nana and Papa!!

Ready to head out for an afternoon of wet adventures!!

Nothing like a Splash Pad on a hot summer day!! Pure bliss!!
From there we went to the neighborhood pool.

And ended the day with dinner at a Mexican restaurant.

Kennedy had her first gymnastic's lesson and we were there!

John and I just got back from a week in Charleston filled with new things and celebrations!

Kennedy's swim lesson the night we got there which John and Dan went to, her first gymnastic class we all went to, her 3rd birthday party, Father's Day, our anniversary and her actual birth DAY! We packed a lot of fun and good memories into that time!!

She had a ball at gymnastics and I was really impressed with how busy they kept the kids and how many different things they got to do:

Oh, and check out her cute mermaid leotard!!!
