Well, like any good mother, I forgot the to pack the sweaters for the girls but remembered to pack my coat, along with Paul's jacket. So........we froze for the first 15 minutes while the girls remained warm and toasty. Thankfully, it warmed up and everyone was shedding their jackets.
While in Sedona, Kennedy had her dream come true. She caught a butterfly. Unfortunately the poor thing was injured and couldn't get away from the curious princess. Yes, she wanted to keep as a pet but we freed the poor struggling thing. It was pretty cool though to see the awe on her face.

Kennedy was looking through some cookbooks and found a picture of a banana split and asked for one. At that moment it occurred to me that they had never had one. So...we went to the store and picked out our toppings and came home to make good old fashioned banana splits. We even bought Neapolitan ice-cream!!
Paul married a couple on Sunday and could not return without roses. When Kennedy found out that he was doing a wedding she begged for a rose. He called to tell me he was on his way home and she asked to speak to him. I had forgotten about the rose. When I put her on the phone with Paul she said "daddy do you have my rose?" Well, what was a dad to do then?? If he couldn't get one there he was gonna stop at the store. When he arrived home, the girls about tackled him for their roses. They carried them around all night and even wanted to sleep with them. I couldn't ask for a better husband/father. I guess I won the lottery!
I think that Kennedy figured that she must be a princess since she has a rose. She asked daddy to be her prince and dance with her. It was so precious and so completely heart melting. Daddy will always be her prince. Some guy is gonna have a tough time measuring up to daddy one day! He better be superman!
Yes, Kennedy can swim but prefers not too. She actually a very good swimmer but extremely hesitant. I think she doesn't want to get her hair wet or something. I'm not sure, can't really figure it out. We usually have to bribe her into going under the water. hahahah
