Well, it's become one of our favorite traditions to visit the Hixon Family before our trip to the beach every year so Claire can visit her China buddy Mary Grace. As usual we were overwhelmed by their wonderful Southern Hospitality, and just had a blast. We've come to think of them as part of our extended family. The girls had a great time together and MG has grown leaps and bounds and they are growing up before our eyes......
Well, on our way to pick up Jesse from Golf Camp, we decided to meet Claire's Murfreesboro cousins for a dinner and shopping at the new AG store in Cool Springs! Claire was just in heaven, as this was her first visit ever to an American Girl store! We had dinner and then Claire used her Birthday money to shop. A blast was had by all!
Claire and cousin Kate ready to explore AG!
Choosing which puppy to buy for her doll Margaret.
The next morning we headed to Golf House Tennessee to pick up Jesse from camp and got to watch him finish up playing a scramble tourney against all the other boys....Beautiful day in Franklin!
Jesse at the graduation ceremony.....sad for it to be over.....
Well, Claire now goes with me to shop for her clothes...all the cute smocked and ruffle things are a thing of the past....She very much has an opinion and picked out this little"bohemian number" yesterday. Well, I can't win all the battles....at least she accessorized with a cute necklace and headband! Lots to post soon, as we are going the the American Girl Restaurant and Store in Franklin on our way to pick up Jesse from Golf Camp....should be lots of pics coming soon!!!
We the kids went swimming for the first time this summer at our friend's home on a beautiful 87 degree day! We ate outside and the kids played and played!! We enjoyed the sounds of laughter, the sounds of splashing, and cicadas everywhere!!!
Love this photo of Carson and the water coming out as I snapped the pic,,,,
