The perfect ANGEL!
All the cousins together!
2nd trip: DISNEY WORLD! That's right, we loaded up and both sides of the family went to Disney World. We left on Saturday, June 25 and drove all the way down and stayed in a hotel so we could check in Sunday. We hit Magic Kingdom Sunday, Animal Kingdom Monday, Hollywood Studios Tuesday, Epcot on Wednesday, Magic Kingdom again on Thursday. Then Friday we loaded up and headed to the beach again for the weekend of the 4th. We were worn out and exhausted but had a great time.
3rd event: Camp Cherokee! Gracie went to Camp Cherokee with some friends and had a great time. She went to 1st timers camp so we took her on Sunday and picked her up Wednesday evening. She was ready to come home but says she is staying for a whole week next time, and I don't doubt it. She lost her shampoo on the first night and had to borrow some from friends the rest of the time---or so she says!
Then sadly poor Halle went and I have no photo b/c busy me walked out and left the camera. Halle had a blast but got homesick so I'm not sure she'll return next year. I'm hoping she'll find a good friend to go with her for next summer but we will see. She is so brave though. She went without really knowing anyone in her cabin and I know I wouldn't have done that at 9.
The kids and I went for one last trip to the beach the week before school started and that wrapped up our summer! Good-bye summer 2011--we will miss you but we have lots of pictures and great memories to share and talk about forever!
