Since we were not going to be taking a BIG family vacation with my side of the family this year, we decided to take a couple of days and drive up to North Carolina to visit my brother and his family (before they move back to VA). It was a loooooonngggg drive up since we left late Thursday afternoon, hit traffic before getting to Melbourne and didn't stop until about 2 am!! Before leaving we bought Kelsey a DVD player for the car, only to be used on trips. It was pretty much her first time watching movies and she was zombied just like we thought she'd be.
We had such a good time just hanging out. Kelsey loved playing with her cousins Dylan and Allison. They helped me wake her up everyday from naps and in the morning. Dylan and Allison both took Kelsey for rides in Allison's car. Kelsey kept asking for a ride and probably would've driven herself if she was old enough. She loved it. They played in the kids' playroom. Allison taught Kelsey how to play tea party.
On Monday the kids had to go to camp before Kelsey got up. When I woke her up she said "Dylan and Allison come in?" "Where are Dylan and Allison?" I told her they were at school and when we went downstairs and she saw no one (daddy went with Uncle Michael to drop the kids off) she said "no one's here!"
On Tuesday we left in the AM to come home. It was another looonnnnggg drive, but Kelsey was very good. She even asked me to turn the video off at one point and she just played for a bit. She asks almost everyday about her video, but we have told her it is only for when we go on trips (that means not just around town).

It's so funny how Kelsey's view of the world differs from ours. We don't live in or near a big city. When we took a road trip last week to go visit Uncle Michael and his family in NC, we drove through Jacksonville. As we were driving over the big bridge, Kelsey exclaimed from the backseat..."Look mommy, BIG TOWERS!" She was looking out the window and pointing at the big high rise buildings of the city. Too cute!!

Lou took off of work on Friday and we packed up and drove to Bathtub Beach. Aunt Kellie met us out there before she had to go to work. It was overcast, but Kelsey still had a good time. The water was quite chilly with no sun out, so she did not want to go in. Lou snorkeled the reef for a while while Kelsey and Aunt Kellie played catch.

We've been putting her slide into her little pool lately and she has fun with it. She climbs out, carefully climbs the steps to the slide and then sits there for a bit before she slides into water. I got the bright idea to bring the slide over to the Big Pool with us. I wasn't sure if she would like it as much, but she does. She did it a bunch of times before I finally realized I needed to go get the camera.

Lately Kelsey has loved tunnels. She calls the bike rack outside the gym tunnels. She and Madeline used to play in the "tunnels" everyday when we would leave the gym. This weekend daddy built her tunnels using the ottoman coffee tables we have and his UF blanket (since I made it for him, it's allowed downstairs in view of the public). Today I couldn't reach the blanket, so I used pillows instead. That meant I couldn't push the ottomans as far away from each other as daddy did. The first time she went down she said "i don't fit" and stood up. I told her to try again and she did and then came back up and said "I'm too big". At this point I knew I needed to get the camera. I pushed them a little farther apart and started filming. I only intended for it to be a short video but then she'd do something cute or start talking more so I just kept filming. 5 minutes later...here it is: (don't forget to hit the triangle play button if you want to watch the video, and make sure your sound is turned on)
PS...I have a bunch of posts in draft, so when you check back, make sure you scroll down past this post
