We stayed at the same hotel for the night and for the first time our little one hit the water. Literally, in fact. She earned a new nickname, Cannonball! Grandma even got into the water. Like Penny always says, girls just wanna have fun!
Mike and Amanda, Kris, Doug and Penny all ended up in our room for pizza.. It was almost perfect until I face timed Jon and Charlotte, then I was happy. For a few minutes we were all together joking and laughing. Family. Doesn't get much better than this.
On Monday we had a little Labor Day barbecue. The cousins came and made Penny very happy. Penny hugged her cousin and said, " I've missed you so much!" They pretended and ran and watched Frozen and built a nest with all the couch cushions. Jonathan manned the grill while I took care of the food inside. We had the best sweet corn and a near perfect watermelon. The best of the summer. A nice visit with my bro Greg and SIL Elizabeth. The only problem we had all evening was trying to get the girls to leave. TEN MORE MINUTES, each one took a turn asking for more time together.
On a sad note, our Charlotte lost her dear Grandmother Charlotte last week. She was a amazing woman who lived a wonderful life. She was 96 years old and just recently slowed down. What a blessing to have had such a remarkable Grandmother. She leaves behind a wonderful family and a amazing Granddaughter to carry her name. We all love you Charlotte and Jon.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments. Enjoy this beautiful day!
