We took Adam to eat at Mean Mr. Mustards wearing our outfits. We gave him his shirt at breakfast, and he put it on immediately. He earned so many cool Daddy points with that move; I think he's still working off the surplus points.
A little later in the afternoon, we took him bowling.
I even let him win. It was Father's Day!
I didn't remember that Courthouse Falls didn't have a good place for a picnic. We managed to find a small perch, but it wasn't an ideal spot. We watched Daddy do a little fishing.
Kenly finally worked her way down to the water's edge with Daddy's help.
Seeing Kenly in this little bikini makes me panic just a bit. She looks so grown up. Up until this point, I've only bought her one piece suits, but somehow we have a draw full of hand-me-down suits that are two pieces.
Adam managed to catch a few trout on Father's Day. The trout here are small, but they are wild and beautiful.
Our picnic perch.
Eating lunch listening to the falls. I made chicken salad for the grown ups and PBJ for Kenly.
Corah loves being outside. She finally smiled big enough for me to capture her two new teeth. See those two pearly whites on the bottom?
Those blue eyes are amazing.
Kenly caught her first every "rainbow fish." I don't know who was more excited--Kenly or Adam. Adam hooked the trout, but then Kenly used the fly rod to land the fish.
One proud little girl.
The afternoon ended with Adam looking like a Sherpa as we made a hasty exit to the van. A storm came up and we had to get quickly back the the van. When we arrived, Kenly announced that she had to poop, so we completed our first "poop in the woods." Kenly was so tired that she fell asleep in the van. It has been at least a year since she's slept in the car.
From here, things get a bit out of order. I tried to fix it, but I'm just too tired to fight Blogger on this one. So, I slowly get caught up on the blog or I can stay behind forever trying to make it perfect. I choose to get caught up.
We took a trip to Augusta for a week. We had many wonderful adventures; one of those adventures was "rolling down the river." Papa loaded us all up for a ride down the Savannah River. We started out near the airport and ended up in downtown Augusta. It was a day full of fun. After eating lunch at a Mexican restaurant, Kenly played in the fountain. She attracted the attention of an Augusta Chronicle photographer, and before we knew it, Adam, Kenly, and I were frolicking in the fountain. Picture of Kenly and Adam were in the paper, and pictures of all of us were on the paper's website.
Kenly loved helping Papa drive the boat.
She might not know how to dig in the sand, but she can sure chew on the shovel. I love how her cheeks get really red when she's hot.
Papa took Corah out into the lake. She wasn't sure how she felt about it.
Look at that face. Can't you hear her thought process? What is this? Do I want Papa to take me away from Mama? I don't think I'm going to like this.
Now when I get behind the boat on a tube, my Daddy has a different agenda. I wish I could make these next photos a flip book.
Daddy had some fun feeding Corah Beth.
Adam and Papa went on a boy's night. The went fishing on Deep Step. They came back with these beauties. The girls went to dinner and to have their toenails done at T & Tran Nails.
Kenly had a good time playing with marbles and buttons with Papa. I love these pictures that Adam took.
I love this picture. Crossed eyes and bubble blowing--PRICELESS!
We also took a trip to see Rock City. Pops really wanted to take the girls to see the attractions, so we made it happen. We rented a cabin named The Mill House just outside of Chattanooga, TN. We had a good time fishing and exploring Rock City.
She even taught him to pound it!
We enjoyed some refreshments at the top of the world.
We came back to the cabin for a bit more fishing, and Adam caught a HUGE catfish.
Kenly started practicing making her own peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
We decided to make some homemade strawberry jam. Kenly and Corah did the smashing and stirring. I did the rest. We are saving one last jar. It's so good. If heaven had a taste, this is what it would taste like.
Strawberry jam is pretty too.
We made a garden stone for Nana. It turned out nicely.
