Fourth of July weekend.
Full of strolling, swimming, sun, fun, birthday celebration, good food and time with family.
We left for my Mom and Dad's last Thursday night. I was so excited to leave on Thursday night. It was extra nice spending another night there. It truly made it feel like a weekend. Even like a mini-vacation.
Friday was Kyle's 20th birthday. That's right. My little brother is no longer a teenager. We spent the day splashing in the pool and just spending time together. That night we had a "spaghetti birthday dinner" for Kyle. After dinner we celebrated with my grandmother's homemade cake and store bought ice cream. MK was fascinated with the tub of ice cream. I didn't give her any, but she tried several times to stick her little fingers in it.
Saturday, the 4th, was a nice and relaxing day filled with fun. We started the day with a nice walk around the neighborhood and then headed to the pool. MK is loving the pool more and more, which puts a smile on my face. Saturday we had a few special visitors at the pool. My grandmother (MK's great-grandmother), Mammie, came to swim with Morgan Kate. This woman is over eighty years old and loves to swim. She even teaches a "swimercise" class three times a week. Watch out! My uncle Corky and cousin, Will, also came by to swim. And my other grandmother, Mama Jean, and my aunt Deborah stopped by to watch MK too. I liked to pretend that all of these people come to see me, but I know I am just fooling myself. Saturday night we grilled out and "listened" for fireworks. It was such a nice day!
Sunday we took our time getting ready and then headed back home. We had a blast this past weekend. It's clear that MK loves to be on the go. Mommy here was worn out and in bed by 8:45 Sunday night.
