Last Weekend Before School

Since Daddy had to return to school on Monday, we decided to make a weekend out of our trip to Katelyn's Welcome Home Party at the Gower's house in St. Cloud, Florida. After we checked into the hotel, we headed out for dinner at the Arabian Nights dinner show. Kylie got to meet some of the performers and the horses before we sat down to dinner.

She was so enthralled in the show and the story that she barely even touched her dinner, which is unusual for Kylie. She was also a big fan of the hotel room, which she let us know by climbing onto our bed in the middle of the night and doing her loudest rendition of the "Happy Dance".

Despite our lack of sleep the first night, we headed out to the pool the next morning and then to Katelyn's party in the afternoon. Nicole put together a wonderful spread of Chinese treats and souveniers from their recent trip to China. Kylie had a great time playing with the kids, and we had a nice time catching up with our fellow CCAI friends from around the state. Most of all, it was great to see Katelyn home and adjusting so well to her new family. She has clearly been having a wonderful time with her new big brothers and mom and dad.

And Laurie got some mommy practice time in, as Kylie picked up on her teaching expertise right away and solicited her services for some reading time. Thanks Laurie and thanks to the Gower Family for hosting another great event!
