When Patrick started doing this with Kaiya the other day, I was terrified. But Kaiya's excited plea for "more!" at the end of the video says clearly how she feels about it. Needless to say, I was outvoted two to one and the terror continues.

Kaiya is starting to learn animal sounds. You can hardly hear her "sssss" for the snake and her panting for the dog over our extremely loud air conditioner, but she does them so cutely. We aren't sure why she thinks a cat laughs; maybe because she makes that sound when she sees a cat. We have some cows that live across the street and she moos at them every day and they even moo back at her sometimes. She loves animals and loves to make the sounds, but I do wonder, does mommy really say, "ahhhhhh"? I better work on that.

For the fourth of July, Kaiya and I went to Nampa to spend the holiday with Ginger, Meghan, and some of the Larsens. We had a great time and Kaiya loved every minute of it. She loves her Grandma so much so she was so excited to be at her house again, and she didn't seem to remember much from when we lived there, so it was all new and exciting to her. And since the house is no longer baby proof, it was fun for me too to chase her around and redirect her from all the fun things she found to play with (like the dog food). In the morning we went to a parade, then in the evening we had a barbecue and once it got dark we set off fireworks (along with the rest of the neighborhood) in the front yard. Kaiya wasn't able to stay up for the firework show, so we did a few while it was still light so she could see them. I thought she would be scared, but she seemed to enjoy the lights, and none of them were too loud so she did fine. Once I put her to bed I was sure she would wake up during the fireworks because it was so loud, but she slept right through it all. I was so amazed. Normally this girl wakes up to whispering. She must have been really tired from the day's festivities. We had a really great holiday, even though Patrick wasn't able to be with us. Thanks for inviting us Ginger!

Patrick put Kaiya up on this horse and she was thrilled! She didn't even want to get off. We asked her a few times if she was ready to get down and she kept shaking her head and holding on. By the way, Patrick is holding on to her in this picture. He wanted to make it look like she was up there all by herself so he's hiding behind the horse. Just so you know we aren't neglectful parents.
