A Day with McKinley...

Today we got to spend the day watching McKinley while Karrissa, Joe and Kylie are at the hospital recovering.We first took her shopping for toys... of course Grandma has to get her some new toys when we come to town. More bubbles, a little play tent (princess theme), and a 'aah aah aah' (Little Mermaid) little scooter.Then off to the Alliante library's singing time. McKinley likes the big stuffed bear (had to give it a hug) and the HUGE Goldfish. The singing time and book reading was fun. Jill got down on the floor and helped out.Since we promised... we then had to take her over to the park to see the ducks (quack quack) and the turtles (hand-sign) and the 'swides'. The park there is very nice with a waterfall, lots of ducks, and turtles of all sizes. The playground has a 'dinosaur' theme - with that real soft stuff to walk on.McKinley had fun on the Swing - though it took about 15 pictures to get one that turned out alright, and the Slides. She wanted to go on the 'big slides' but Jill remembered the 'bang-ouch, bang-ouch' last time Alysha took her on it.Then in the early afternoon to the hospital to see the baby, and have lunch with Joe in the hospital cafeteria.Her scooter made lots of noise (a perfect grandparents toy) in the hospital room. McKinley likes the baby - and we had fun watching her 'investigate' her new little sister.Someone in the hospital made a little knit hat for Kylie - but McKinley requestioned it right off Kylie's head.
Time to go home for a nap...

What a great day for grandparents and McKinley!! Those were all darling pictures of her. I just had to laugh at the last one with her taking Kylie's hat. Good going and we are happy for all of you.

Great pictures. Glad you're able to be Grandparents and help out. What a help you are to Karrissa and Joe. Kylie is a cutie!
Plus I see by email that she has a new cousin that came to earth- Weston's boy Jack.
