#1, AJ, & JFK

Hello, dear friends.  Boy, am I glad this week is over!  You'll find out why next week.  

This is part two of #1 & Adorable Jonathon's visit over Easter weekend.  You can find the first part here.  We originally planned to spend Good Friday on the Cape.  Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we woke up to a cold, rainy day.  So, we decided to go with our backup plan - John F. Kennedy Library. 

Two happy campers! 

I thought that the Library would either be packed or empty considering it was such a miserable day.  We lucked out and there were very few people there.

Just in case you forgot what JFK looked like.

This photo depicts the reason that we love AJ so much.  He will do anything to make our #1 laugh.

The library holds many personal photographs and movies of the family.

I remember canvassing for JFK with my Dad when I was young.  Really, really young.  Too bad I couldn't wear one of these cute numbers.

The color of this gorgeous gown is not captured in this photo.  
It is stunning!

I've never seen #1 so happy to be in a library before!

The Library is situated in a beautiful spot on the water.

A good time had by all!

We then stopped for a late lunch at one of my favorite places, Rustic Kitchen.  The reason the happy couple looks like they have jaundice is because they were sitting under yellow lights.

I know two little poochies that were glad to see us get home.

We had a glass of wine, noshed on a cheese board, and called it a day.

Have a great weekend.

Until next time...

  1. Seriously, can the four of you be any cuter?! I love the JFK Library - a Boston highlight for sure! And don't even get me started on that cheese board!! Enjoy your weekend, my dear!! xoxo

  2. Katie, this is such a fun post! Your family is adorable. You look beautiful and your daughter too. I can certainly understand why you like that your daughter is smiling. That's kind of all that matters in the world. Right? :)

  3. Wow -- what an amazing library! Hope to get to visit it someday. Great photos! Your #1 is so pretty -- she looks a lot like you! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. You and your daughter are both stunning. She looks extremely happy, which I'm sure makes you overjoyed. I feel like, as a mom, I will feel the biggest sense of satisfaction when my kids find a partner that loves and appreciates them.
    I am a little obsessed with all things JFK, so that museum would be right up my ally. Have a great weekend!

  5. You and #1 are just darling!! And that cheese spread...yum!!!

  6. Katie, the four of you look like you could be Kennedy's!! What a great outing for your family!!

  7. What a fabulous looking cheese board! The JFK library looks incredible, especially that large glass window-wall overlooking the water. Here in Texas, I have visited both Bush libraries and the LBJ library in Austin. It is always interesting to see that slice of history! Have a good weekend!

  8. Wow salivating over that cheese board,I am sure you did all the cooking/preparing:)
    AJ is a doll and a keeper, they are so cute togehter and are making them famous:) I never realized how much #1 and you look alike until I saw that first pic. And lastly isn't the JFK library incredible! I want to go back...enjoy your weekend and dont' away that winter coat or snow shovel too fast..ugh!

  9. It looks like you had a fabulous weekend with your beautiful girl and her boyfriend! They look so happy. I LOVE your new haircut! You look fabulous! Have a great weekend.

  10. The cheese board again - I am going to have to get busy and assuage my urge for cheese and figs this weekend.
    Isn't it lovely to see one's children so happy?

  11. That was a clever plan to make the most of a dreary day. I've toured the Carter library when I lived in Atlanta, and was there when they had an exhibit of all the first ladies inauguration gowns. It was wonderful! Glad you had a good time!

  12. What a wonderful, happy post! You have a gorgeous family and I LOVE, love, love your hair!!!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. Have a great weekend.

  13. They are as cute as a button and looks like a fun time for sure! HAppy weekend!

  14. You are all just too cute for words!! And, that cheese plate looks delish! Happy weekend, Katie!

  15. I'd love to visit the JFK library....and all of ya'll are just too cute!

    Every time I see "JFK" I'm reminded of a true story about my momma...we were traveling to my sister's to visit with her one day a few years ago when momma asked me to pick up a book for her at her library they were holding for her when we got back home, I asked her the name of the book and she said "Killing KFC"! I said you mean Killing JFK? She said, of course! Guess where we ate lunch that day? KFC!!!!!

  16. You all have the best time, and I love seeing your #1 so happy. Isn't that the best!!l Happy weekend ~

  17. Oh what fun and who doesn't love JFK?

  18. You guys are so adorable! Looks like you had a wonderful time. Jackie's dresses were so beautiful! That woman really had style, didn't she? Have a great weekend!

  19. What a delight to see everyone so happy! #1 and AJ are impossibly adorable. And then the food! Wow! You look fabulous in your new do. Happy weekend!

  20. I love spotting a bit of Mackenzie-childs in your kitchen!

  21. What a great day you all had despite the weather. Sure wish your Mister was here to whip up one of those gorgeous cheese boards On Pinehurst Place! Have a great weekend!

  22. I've always thought your baby's boyfriend looks just like Brett Baier on Fox News!!
    and guess what I saw last week? Was in Dallas and saw a man driving the car that JFK was killed in. He owns it and rides it around the area around the grassy noll where it happened. Flags and all flying from the convertible. I actually gasped when I saw it!!

  23. Looks like a good time was had by all! A very beautiful family! AND, we finally get to see your hair cut! Love it, too!

  24. Katie,
    A great way to spend a wet and cold day...INSIDE visiting JFK's library. Jackie was so classy looking in all her clothes.


  25. The JFK Library is always worth the trip - a nice place to spend the day with your family.
    The Mister assembles the best cheese boards!
    Have a great week.

  26. I just need to say that the Kennedys always seemed to look great in photos and by goodness so does everyone in your family. Your jacket and scarf were "Jackie O worthy"...looks like you had a great time.

  27. Such a happy post! Going to the photo of the cheese board. What a beautiful presentation!
    Beautiful family too! '-)

  28. I love the JFK Library! It looks like, even with a crummy weather day, the view from the library was still beautiful. Also beautiful? Your #1 and her mom!
