How I Spent My Summer Vacation
By Kinley Marie
Who knew that I, Kinley Marie, had accumulated 10 vacation days in my 6 months here on Earth? So, when my Grandma Kim and Grandpa Randy came to visit last Friday, I saved my parents some dough and let the grandparents take me for the day.
I like day care and all my friends there. But grandparents? They are pretty easy to entertain.
Show a little musical ability. Sing a few Sunday School songs. And Grandma is happy. Check out the markets and the weather. And Grandpa is thrilled.
Exhibit a little interest in reading, and they are both over the moon with delight. They are SO easy.
I wowed them with my super fantastic new tricks. A little Army crawling can make the older generation go a little crazy with their unbridled enthusiasm. Bring on the applause people!
After meeting Mom and Dad for lunch in downtown Topeka, we visited Mom's office. Let's just say I was popular there, too.
Giraffe and I were pretty tired after our excursion. And we needed our beauty rest since my big 6-month photo shoot was Friday evening. Being a model is hard work, but I think I pretty much rocked it. I had gotten lots of practice since Grandma seemed to have a camera recording every moment of my day before that.
A pesky fever kind of ruined my half-year birthday celebration on Saturday.
But I still managed to try my first bites ever of food. I'm not sure what I think of rice cereal at this point. Time will tell.
A popular girl's entertaining work is never done. After a quick photo with Grandma Kim Sunday morning, I was off to Humboldt to entertain my Daddy's side of the family at a reunion. I may have to go to day care just to get some rest.
