What we've been up to....

Shane is in Tampa FL training for his new job until July 3rd. So on Sunday, Kennedi and I came to Moab to stay with my parents for a week. Kennedi absolutely LOVES being at grandma and grandpa's house, probably because she gets away with EVERYTHING here. She also loves to play with all the neighbor kids. My mom has had to work all week, while my dad is on vacation, so I've been helping my dad with all of his projects he has going on. The last couple of days, we were putting the rock on the front of their house. Today, we have been taping off his 69 Camaro that he has totally rebuilt, and is getting ready to paint tomorrow. It has been fun, I love to do projects like that.

Kennedi said the funniest things today. She was outside with my dad before I came out and when she came inside to get me, and I asked her how the car was looking. she said "it looks so ugly, but don't tell grandpa because you'll hurt his feelings". It was so funny, so then after we got it all taped off, I asked her again how it looked, she said " it looks embarrassing, it is hideous". So those are her feelings about grandpa's pride and joy.

Oh and I can't forget to mention that we spend EVERY night at the ball park. That is just what you do in the summer in Moab, it has been this way my whole life, and for kids, it is so fun! It was always the highlight of my summers. My niece and nephew both play, so we have been there every night to watch them. Kennedi loves going and heeleying everywhere. She likes to go to the snack shack and get cotton candy and snow cones.

So far, it has been a nice little break from everything that we have been going through the last little while.

How fun! I would love to hang out at ballfields every night! But it is just way too hot here!
You will have to take a picture of the car so we can see what it looks like! Funny comments from that little girl of yours!

It's about time he did something with that heap. How fun for Kennedi to be able to do all the things you did when you were little.

I am so glad to hear that you had a break from things. I know it can be stressful. But you need that down time to take care of yourself. Good luck with the new place, it's kinda fun to be somewhere new and start fresh, I think!
