We're having an island-vacation HERE this week with our daughter, Amy, and granddaughter, Kennedy. They arrived on the red-eye flight early early Saturday morning. Life has pitched Amy some unexpected and not-so-fun stressful curve balls this past several months (divorce, moving, job loss) and we decided that now was the best time to spend time with family and to make our own "winter holidays" for the next week.
Kennedy is now 16 months old - walking, jabbering away, responding to commands in both English and Spanish (she goes to a Spanish-speaking daycare back in Michigan), and the most happy, loving little girl ever. We may be biased, but those are the facts. She's been smiling, hugging, laughing, and winning hearts at Ola Lola's all weekend.
So, both baby Kennedy (our little "mani") and Amy are spending time just enjoying the sunlight, catching up on rest and a little pampering from parent/grandparent units, and having a bit of a tropical vacation with us. It's been a joy - the pictures tell much of the story so far. More will be posted on Flickr soon.
