Since I have been so bad about update this past week I wanted to add some pictures. Chris had to go back to work today so last night we headed out for the 2 hour drive to the airport. I was so happy that I did not hit any traffic. The part I don't like is that as I was pulling into the driveway at the beach house I was getting a text from Chris saying that he had landed in Atlanta.
He has never been away from Kennedi this long but at least he has work to keep him busy... for the next 19 days straight... UGH!!
The boys are a little bummed since summer is just about over. When we get home they start school less than 2 weeks later. I think we need an extended summer... I am so not ready for the kids to go back. I really love having them home with me all day long. I think they are going to have trouble leaving Kennedi. It is unbelievable to see them with her and to see how much they adore her (and how much she loves them!!).
The first week we had 2 houses and they were both filled with people. At one time I think it was 25 people we had. With that many here we were still missing a few...
and then we took one of the just the grand kids and great grand kids. Once again we were missing a few.
Conner and Avery have become really good at the skim board the past few years. I get a little nervous with the many broken bones we have had but they seem to bounce pretty good on the sand when they go down... here they are posing before hitting the water.
For a few days Kennedi was not sure of the sand or the water. Of course on Chris' last day she started to walk into the water... yes I said WALK... She has become quite good since we have been here. Here are a few of her playing in the sand and water....
Chris and Kennedi got to spend a lot of time together this week. I think they both really enjoyed it.. I love the picture of the two of them on the beach. It is probably one of my favorite pictures of the two of them.
Of course we had to take the token family picture on the beach.. YUCK!! The sun was out and shining so we all had our eyes squinted pretty badly... but a few turned out great!
Chris looking very relaxed.... I think he needs to take a week off more often!!
and to end this update, here is one of the 3 babies of the family. Meredith and Ryan are great grands and then of course Kennedi is a grand.....
