Visiting Grandma & Grandpa Myers
After we visited in New York, we drove down to Connecticut to see Grandma & Grandpa Myers (they're Mommy's parents). Anyway, Mommy and Daddy told me the last time we did this drive it was in a terrible thunderstorm. We were all pretty excited that the weather was nice and that we manage to avoid the worst of rush hour traffic into Fairfield.
Anyway, I had a great time in Fairfield too. I found all sorts of dress up stuff around Grandma's house, we went to a playground by the beach and we played with cousins and neighborhood girls. We also had an early birthday party for me which was really cool! The mini-cupcakes ended up not being mini so there were plenty of leftovers. I also probably got a bit more than I would have. I don't think that half a big cupcake is as small as a mini-cupcake. Hee-hee. Lucky me!
Uncle Brian and Cousin Nick came down from Vermont for the day and that was a special treat. We're really sorry that Aunt Lisa, Cousin Mike and little canine Cousin Dottie didn't come too. I think Dottie would be a lot of fun! Roo the kitty would be good too but I don't want to subject a cat to a car trip.
Grandma & Grandpa also have a bunny or two in their yard (we saw one one the trail at Grandma & Grandpa McCullough's too). Anyway, there was one that I kept chasing - he'd run away but then he'd come back and then I'd chase him and he'd run away and then he'd come back and.... Anyway, that kept us all giggling.
By the end of our trip, though, I was really really tired from all the excitement so I was glad when it was time to head home.

Grandma and Grandpa came to visit! I was really excited to see them but I was also really excited because Mamma said we could have cupcakes when they came. In fact, I was so excited that the first thing that I said when I saw them was "Cupcakes!" So much for Grandpa's surprise cupcakes. I have been paying close attention and I don't think we'll get cupcakes again until Daddy's birthday and that's after Thanksgiving and Christmas! That's a long time.
I had a great time visiting with them. We went to Uncle Todd's house for dinner and I got to play with his camping mat and his foam roller and I got to ride Rosie's horse swing (Rosie is Uncle Todd's neighbor), we also went to OMSI and Brooklyn Park playground and we played a lot at our house. I was so busy dancing for them and entertaining them that sometimes I asked Mommy if they could go home...then I would take a long nap. Now I miss them, of course. Come back soon!
