Kendalyn and Michiko's July vacation! (Photo Heavy)

Hi everyone.  Sorry it took us so long to post this, but since we got home, it's been chaos.  Momma and her guy are swapping rooms with the oldest boy, A, and there's been a LOT of construction and painting and so on, so she hasn't had time to sit down with us and get our vacation written down.  The first part, from Sunday, she helped us write while we were still in Rodanthe, NC.  The rest will be written and added today.  So, here goes! (I, Kenna, will be in purple, while Mika will be in burgundy)

It's Kendalyn and Michiko here, on vacation with Momma and TechGuy.  We've had a great time so far, even though we only got to leave the RV once (but it's HUGE, and there's snacks, and movies, and the human laptop).  We've had fun so far, and we thought we'd share a bit of our adventure with you.

Sunday evening, well, we don't have much to share about that.  We got off to a VERY late start, Momma and Mika got car sick and had to take benadryl and sleep it off.  We didn't get in until after midnight, so we told Momma we were fine sleeping in our clothes, since she was so out of it. (Shhh, Kenna, I was too! Benadryl plus late driving nights are not fun!)

Monday, we got up, ready to start our day, got dressed, and really realized how big the RV was!  It was pretty awesome!  Like a home away from home.  We spent a lot of time around the front dash, as the humans didn't use that area, so we could watch movies and leave our stuff out there without it needing to be moved.  But, we had fun exploring, and we made a new friend, SeeAny Moose.  (Mom-Mom, TechGuy's mother, has one named SeeMore as well, but he wasn't in the RV, at least not that we could find him.)

Tuesday, we  decided to spend the day in our PJs.  Since the humans were going out to Cape Hatteras (which was apparently extremely hot, not good for vinyl, lol), Mika and I watched a few movies on the laptop and got into the junk food that was all over the RV (Momma says to tell you it wasn't allllllll over the RV, but since Kenna loves jellybeans and fudge, it seems, we ended up with junk food all over the front dash, a.k.a. the Doll Zone).  

Momma and TechGuy came back, he took a nap, and Momma helped us pose for pictures.  TechGuy, when he woke up, asked why we didn't pose around him, but of course, never took another nap for us to try. (Mika loved watching The Legend of Korra. I liked it, but I love my Knight's Tale.)

Wednesday was relax day for everyone.  Momma and her guy spend so much time running around, trying to get everything into their vacation, that Momma says sometimes, they need a relax day.  We made breakfast, and everyone watched movies, crocheted (Momma), or played on their phones.  Momma helped us get ready for the beach (since TechGuy said that was the one outing he was okay with us going on!), and braided our hair so we didn't get it too gross.

The Beach was so much fun! I loved it!  I think maybe I was meant to live at one.  (Hint Hint Hint) We got to go in the water, play in the sand (and model for Momma).  Next time, I think I'd like to bring a picnic.

Thursday was slow for us, since the humans were out and about.  We relaxed, watched more movies, and just enjoyed ourselves.  

Friday, we helped pack up, and headed home.  We were supposed to stop at the American Girl Doll Place in Washington, DC, but we hit too much traffic, and TechGuy wasn't feeling too good.  (He had heat exhaustion, though we didn't know it at the time, he just felt hot and drained.) I was a little disappointed, but Kenna reminded me, Momma tries to go 3-4 times a year, so we'll get to go another time, I'm sure. 

Vacation was a lot of fun, and while I'll be sorry not to go next time, I can't wait to see who gets to go next!

Hey everyone... we're still alive! (Quick update)

Hey guys!  Jaelin here.  We're going thru a lot of changes here in PA, and a few girls are going to be leaving us soon (they talked with Momma, and while they like it here, they would like a little girl to play with, or a chance to explore with some new friends... Momma has been swamped with work and redoing rooms since vacation, and hasn't been "listening", lol), as well as a few new girls joining us.  And perhaps, eventually... a boy?  It'd be great to have a guy around.

Anyways, I'm updating here so that you don't forget about us.... *breaks into song* "Don't you... forget about me. Don't don't don't you, forget about me...."  Ahem. Sorry, Momma watched 16 Candles and The Breakfast Club last weekend on a TV special.  And I've been told I need to point out that they are NOT movies for viewers under the age of 16 at least.... so whether or not you're under 16, ask your parents' permission.  There are crass humor and references that are DEFINITELY inappropriate.  BUT... the music is perfectly fine to listen to and sing along with.  Simple Minds "Don't You (Forget About Me)" is a favorite around our house.

Right now, counting the 2 historical dolls (Molly and Kaya kinda keep to themselves), there are 14 of us on the shelves, another 5 sitting on a lower area, waiting for a new home or a new wig, and 2 more who are in "surgery" (I think the fact that they are without stuffing or heads makes it surgery... or scary-ville).

Mika and Kenna have to update on their vacation with Momma and TechGuy as well, and I'm planning on doing a few posts featuring some of our favorite Etsy Shops (Momma gets stuff from Ebay quite a bit... but I feel like Vera will be able to sway her soon...)

And... here's a big one. I talked to Momma... and she's going to be putting up our doll bios over here as well as on her blog!  So you guys will know who we are!  I'm not sure if they will be as detailed... but I will be doing a lot of updating, so stay tuned!

Hope this holds you over for now, this is Jaelin, signing off.

Type at you later!
