I just can't get over how old Jude looks sitting at the picnic table with the girls. He is now standing unassisted and smiling and then cautiously sitting down. Steps are coming soon, I just know it.
We had such a wonderful week with my grandma (Nan). We headed south, visited family, went to the beach, and celebrated Nyah's fifth birthday!Nan gave Ny 50 one dollar bills for her birthday and took her shopping to buy whatever she wanted, something Nyah has never done. After picking a few things and then putting them back, realizing how much things costs, Ny finally decided to spend all her money on one Cinderella dress. I was proud of her and think she got a better grasp of money and paying for things.
|My cousin McKenzie with Jude. He loved her, obviously.|
We made a quick stop at the beach after breakfast one day to see the water and check out my cousin and her husband's water sport business, you can find them on Ft. Myers beach or here, Wind and Water Sports.It was so wonderful to be on the beach again. Nyah and Elsa picked up right where they left off. Jude enjoyed his first visit though he didn't get to swim and get down and dirty in the sand as he wanted to. Next time.
Our best attempt at a group photo.
When this is what they really wanted to be doing.
We then had a pool party to celebrate Nyah's birthday and she got to show off some of her newly acquired swimming skills. So fun.
Here's the teenager in her new princess dress.
The look wouldn't be complete without glass slippers.
Overall, it was such an amazing week spent with family, none of which would have been as easy without Nan's help (and patience). But we missed George like crazy (as usual) and came home one day early just to see him.
We are refreshed and ready for Nyah and George to start school.
