A little (more) island adventure.

I visited the little island of Nantucket when I was just a baby, and I promised Aunt and Uncle KandK that I would be back, whether they liked it or not! So, during our travels in the Far East, we hopped on a ferry and zipped over the ocean and joined all of dad’s family at KandK’s little island home. It was a wonderful four days of little island life.

KandK have a beautiful home with a big yard and big flowers.

Their yard is so big and perfect for shenanigans.

The whole family gathered together, and ate clams cooked many different ways.

We visited multiple beaches, saw lots of boats, shells, seaweed, and even a lighthouse.

The water was very cold at some of the beaches.

There were boats of all sizes, including large yachts.

There was even a light house, which was rather small for my taste.

The sunset on the beach the last night was certainly the most special part of the trip.

Then it was time to hop back on the high speed ferry, feel the wind in our hair, and head back to America.

Thanks for a wonderful visit to your little island, KandK! Don’t worry, I will invite myself back again sooner rather than later!!!

A big box.

A big box arrived the other day. It was addressed to me, and came all the way from Nantucket, and weighed almost twice as much as I do!

Aunt and Uncle KandK had packed up a whole collection of used toys that are now delightfully new to me! They rock.

I can use this to stand up, whatever it is!

I especially liked all the musical instruments. Mom claims she does, too, but I think I might change her mind after a while.

Thanks, AuntandUncle KandK! Next time throw a little Nantucket beach into the box, okay?

A little island adventure.

I visited an island this past week. A very unique island named Nantucket.

My Aunt and Uncle KandK live there, and I got to meet them for the first time.

Aunt and Uncle KandK!!!

I think they are a lot of fun, especially since you have to take a boat to get to their house.

The blue ocean and blue sky were my favorite parts. Uncle K said that Portugal was out there in the water, but I couldn’t really see that far.

Perhaps I will come again when I don’t have to wear my winter hat. Yes, KandK, I just invited myself back. I won’t take up too much room.

(For clarification, I know I refer to many Aunts and Uncles, but KandK are actually related to me for real.)
