We spent a few days in "the south" visiting our family that lives there.  Breakfast and Sunday morning with Darrin and Kelsey was wonderful.  I know you've heard it from me before but I have to say it again - I love being with our adult children.  It's fun to see them with their partners, to listen to their stories and share in their successes now that they are pretty independent.

We also spent time with Heather and Jonathan,  Helayna and Silas.   And we got to hang out at gymnastics class one morning which was lots of fun, especially for the two little ones!

The warmup was carrying little stuffed animals 

from one end of the mats
(it was friend day so Helayna's little buddy came too)

to Mom who was at the other end -
and then taking them all back, one by one!

They both liked the rings -

and the long bouncy trampoline.

I was surprised at how well she can do somersaults already -

and how he can bounce and balance on the trampoline.

They had a little circuit that they had to do

using all the cool equipment that this club has set up.

Look at those arms - 
I am amazed at this little strong man!

This is such a great place for the kids
to learn and practice a whole bunch of new skills.
And I'm so glad we got to see them and share in the fun!
