Memorial Weekend 2012...

Here's a little picture heavy re-cap of our fun-filled-but-exhausting weekend.  We started off by spending Saturday and Nana and Papaw's place at the lake.  Kerry and cousin Sydnie always have fun together.

Pop-sicles and golf cart rides with Papaw John are always on the agenda at the lake.

We pic-nicked at Bernheim with my family.

We had a big ol' spread of fried chicken, potato salad, mac-n-cheese, baked beans, and lots of other yummy extras.

Kerry and Aunt Stephanie are just a little fond of each other =).

This is a new installation at Bernheim.  It's a maze made out of woven vines.  How cool is that?!

She's a monkey =).

After spending the day in the 90+ degree heat, Kerry was more than ready to try out her pool...purchased just after my last post.  She is at a very independant stage right now (when it suits her, he heh) and she insisted on getting into her swim suit by herself.  She came out of the room with the bottoms on, somehow, sideways and and the top all twisted up..but she was proud of herself, nonetheless =). She even got me in it briefly..with little coersion.  Like I said, it was hot! After my little dip in the pool I kicked back in my adirondack chair with an iced tea, a magazine, and of course my Canon at the ready.

She splashed herself a bit too much I guess =)

Yep..it's hot.  I haven't picked up a new "splashing pool" for Kerry yet so we'll have to make do with a galvanized tub for the time being.   She still fits, somewhat, and looks pretty cute in it I think =).

Kerry's encounter with the Big Bad Wolf.


Kerry is quite the story-teller lately

IMG_2982IMG_2988


She tells her little stories with lots and lots of expression, too.  And once she starts, you never know where it's going to go.

 I usually just sit back and watch, and listen, and say "wow" and "oh really?!"  a lot.

She started one of her little stories yesterday evening and I decided to get the video camera out.  The following is a story of Kerry's apparent encounter with the Big Bad Wolf.  I'm giving this clip a PG-13 rating for some mild violence ( I can not figure out where she came up with all of the talk of smacking).  Oh and you'll have to excuse the runny nose.  Enjoy =)

As Mother's Day approaches I've been thinking about a very special woman somewhere on the other side of the world and wishing, as always, that I could thank her and that she would somehow know that the baby girl she gave birth to is doing well and is so very loved.

We've had a bit of an early heat wave this past week so Kerry got to have a little splash time at the water table.

And even got to run around in the sprinkler.

Eventually she decided the dogwood tree needed a little drink.

Then it was back to the sprinkler =).

Around these parts it's Derby time!  And in the two weeks leading up to Derby there are all sorts of fun family events to enjoy for the price of one Derby pin.

Last weekend we decided to take Kerry to the annual Balloon Glow

Check out the size of that Energizer Bunny!

Kerry was so excited that she got to get into the basket of the National Guard ballon while they fired it up.


IMG_2807

Kerry had so much fun and has not stopped talking about the big balloons since!  She's even memorized all of them from the little guide book they gave her at the entrance.
