We started our trip in Florida with a visit with the S. Florida FCC gang, we got to play with Katie Starr, Mia, Molly (visiting from Texas), Lily and all our other buddies at their monthly Chinese dinner. Kacey was a bit freaked out at the beginning with 90 people running around her but with a little help from watermelon, ice cream and candy she came right along! They had trick-or-treating and she didn't quite get the concept, she just kept taking her candy out of her bag and giving it to the other kids...all except those suckers she wouldn't let those out of her sight!
The next day we got to go to the beach and visit with Uncle Kevin and Aunt Donna and their friends. It was a beautiful day and Kacey LOVED the water, the sand she could have done without but she thought the waves and clear ocean water were terrific. You should have seen my brother loading her up with SPF50 lotion, it looked like she had a coat of armor on :) After the sun and fun we headed out with them to lunch, Kacey loves Chinese food and we went to PF Changs so all was right with the world!
That evening we had birthday party #2 at Nana's house, lots of her friends from work came by along with the neighbors and our good friends the Blasuccis. It was so fun and Kacey loved opening her presents, I'm going to need a bigger house for all of this stuff.
I'll have to post the pictures from this part of the trip later in the week because they are on my Mom's camera and her cord is up here :(
Next we headed to St. Louis for birthday party #3 at Bob's house! Everyone was there and Kacey played so hard with the kids that she couldn't catch her breath she was running so fast around the backyard. They threw leaves at each other and every ball that they could find, she is most fond of young people and that counts teenagers too she just seems drawn to them and it doesn't take her any time to warm up as opposed to "big people". There were younguns a plenty on this part of the trip and she had a ball. Once again there were tons of GREAT presents and she loved them and the tissue paper, boxes & bows :)
We got to see our friends Donna and Katie on this trip too, Katie came home from China 6 years ago and it was wonderful to see how big she's gotten and how darned cute!
Traveling is great but there's no place like home! I'm on the last week of my leave from work so my Mom and Dad will be here on Thursday to get Kacey ready for the change. I know that she will be fine home with them, it's me I'm worried about.
