We went to Door County with Gra for the first time.
It was so super duper fun!
The weather was quite a bit cooler than it's been lately.
Unfortunately, we were counting on it being
HOT HOT HOT!
We kind of wanted to lounge around the pool
in the back yard of our condo
playing games and dipping in the water to cool off.
Thankfully, it was warm enough for you to swim
a couple of the days we were there.
Even Gra joined you a bit.
You made some great strides in the water.
You've never been into putting your head under water much.
But this weekend you conquered your fears
and not only dunked under water,
but you also swam around submerged,
like a SHARK! :)
I taught Gra how to play my favorite card game, Canasta.
Like mother like daughter,
she became obsessed and I'm not gonna lie,
we played A LOT!
Of course, we took Gra to Al's.
And to Hands On.
Both firsts for her.
Everyone made their own projects
Gra made a spoon holder for her kitchen.
You made the cutest bowl EVER
for your white dog Apple.
She really needed one and it's perfect!
I helped your Dad with his project...
I giant mug with his company's colors and logo.
Everyone's project turned out great.
It was so awesome to have Gra join us
at our special family get away place.
Over the years, we have created so many great memories in this place.
This trip made it even more special because we had Gra with us.
Our last day, you and your Dad went home early
to let me and Gra spend the day alone together
visiting the town shops, sights, and cafes.
Something I never do when we are there.
It was SO much fun.
I will miss that part the next we are there
and I don't have a Gra to bum around with. :)
