August 1-9, 2009
The first week of August Carter and I flew out to August and Matt joined us later on so that he could finalize his contract with a group of doctors out in Kansas City, Mo. So it is official in June 2010 we will officially be Kansas Citians. We are pretty excited for it and just want that time to be here NOW! I will not shed a single tear over being done with residency. So on to the trip:
Here Carter is playing in the fountains at Crown Center with his Aunt Whitney whom he loves dearly!!
Whitney is great at playing and wrestling with Carter.
Here Carter is getting artistic with Grandma Bon at Kaleidoscope which is a Hallmark place where kids go for free and color and paint and create like crazy.
We tried out having Carter sleep in a "big boy bed" while sleeping at Grandma's house. He had the choice between the "little bed" aka the pack and play or the "big boy bed." I was surprised that most nights he chose the "little bed," but I thought he looked adorable in the big bed.
Grandma Bon pulled out Matt's old hoppity horse that Matt had at Carter's age and Carter loved it. Things were definitely made better back then because the air in that thing is original to Matt's day.
My Dad, Mom, little brother Timmy and little sister Nicki drove through KC while we were out there on their way to dropping Timmy off in Arkansas to play soccer at Central Arkansas University. We hit a bunch of church sites, here we are at Liberty Jail, a BBQ joint and hanging out on the Nielsen's back porch roasting some mellows.
Carter looks up to both of his Grandpas very much, so he wanted to spend some time walking in Grandpa Jay's shoes.
