Kristin qualified for the National championship in gymnastics this year. In mid June, Hope, Kasey, Kristin and I travel to Orlando, Florida for the competition.
After years of watching Bradley and Kyle play football and baseball, gymnastics is all new to me. We have gone to a lot of competitions this year and I have started to pickup some of the nuances of the different events. Hope does a great job of answering my gymnastics ignorant questions and has been fantastic in getting me up to speed on the scoring.
While in the Orlando, FL area, we visited Hope’s parents. While there the girls got to play with baby bunnies. They were small, cute and super soft. They all enjoyed holding and petting the bunnies, especially Kasey!
You cannot be near Disney World and not go to at least one park. We spent a day at the Magic Kingdom. I learned a few things about Hope and the girls that day. First, I learned we have a lot of work to do teaching Kristin to drive. It appears she takes great pleasure in stopping quickly and having her sister rear-end us. She enjoyed this way too much while we were zooming around the speedway. The devious smile on her face is proof.
The second thing I learned was that they all secretly love getting hugs from the Disney characters, especially Pooh Bear.
