Our fourth of July week was wonderful mayhem. Derek and Heather came to visit for a weekend so that they could get to know Kenly a bit better. Derek knows Kenly pretty well, but Heather had never met Kenly. Since Kenly was going to be their flower girl in October, we decided that Heather should get to know her a bit better. The day Derek and Heather left, Jason and Paula drove in for a short visit. We were happy to have them here for the actual fourth. We didn't go anything spectacular. We grilled out and played on the slip and slide, but it was a great visit.
Kenly finally mastered the slip-n-slide without having someone push her at the start of the slide. By the end of the day, she looked like she had been sliding her whole life.
Adam couldn't resist a little sliding action. I think this picture captures them perfectly.
This is how Corah reacts to having her feet dipped in cold water.
On the fifth of July, we headed out to the Davidson for some river fun. And of course, you can be that close to Dolly's without stopping for some ice cream. Since Corah seems dairy sensitive, I had a grape snow cone. If you've had Dolly's ice cream, you know that is a huge sacrifice.
We took her to Patton Park to feed the ducks and play on the playground.
All of our friends have had babies here recently. Jeremy and Sarah had Avett. Jared and Katie had Jonas. They all met us at the event.
Kenly was able to explore a firetruck as well. By this point she was hot, sweaty, and exhausted.
In late July, we headed to Ellijay, GA to hang out with Mops and Pops for awhile at the cabin. Part of the trip involved a visit to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, GA. Most of the pictures from the actual aquarium trip did not turn out so well, but we were able to get a few keepers.
Kenly is getting really good at playing all sorts of card games. She loves Go Fish and Crazy 8, but she also loves to throw Slap Jack in there for good measure.
We went to the splash pad, and both Kenly and Corah enjoyed it.
Corah developed a love affair with puffs over the summer. I introduced these in the spring, and it was love at first taste. I love how she's got a puff in each hand, but she can't wait. She need to shove them in her mouth at the same time. I guess she can't risk having one of them vaporize before she can eat it.
