During the first weekend in February, Kenly and I went home to Augusta. We had a nice visit with Nana, Papa, Grandma, Uncle Travis and Aunt Carrie. I was also able to go out with two of my good friends from high school (Shannon and Debbie) while I was home. It's always so nice to catch up with the people you love. The weather was dismal while we were there, but we made up for it with plenty of indoor fun. Nana and Papa got out Grandma's record player and all of our old records, and Papa was the DJ for our weekend long party. We jammed out to the Sugar Shack and Eat it. Kenly was introduced to the real Mickey Mouse Club(house) theme song.
It's always nice to get some snuggle time in with Papa while reading books.
Kenly got her first lesson in peeling potatoes. It was nice. We had four generations of women around the table peeling potatoes. The mashed potatoes were filled with love that night.
Kenly got to help Papa break the cookie dough to make chocolate chip cookies. She loves any job that involves cookies as an end product.
Kenly got the skirt that Aunt Carrie is wearing around her neck for Valentine's Day from Nana and Papa. Every time Kenly moves, the skirt sings the Hokey Pokey.
Exploring some of the many records that were at her disposal.
Uncle Travis was revisiting the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. He was not at all happy with the story. In fact, he asked Nana, "Why in the world did you expose us to the story? It's awful."
Uncle Travis spent some time serenading Kenly with the Smurf guitar.
Kenly loves watching Papa play the records.
A trip to August would not be complete without an ongoing game of Ah-Boo with Grandma.
Nana even pulled out some of our old toys. Erin was a favorite, but he's seen better days.
An echo microphone and Strawberry Shortcake songs--who could ask for more?
I love my brother. He know how to make his niece laugh.
