We had a very exciting but restful Independence Day ... we went to Wamego to watch their fireworks show ... it was a lot of fun and Hayden didn't seemed to be too bothered by the loud noises they made ... in fact, he's asleep in the picture below!
We wanted a family picture with the fireworks in the background ... and since David is a genius with the camera, he got the timing just right ... but Hayden doesn't seem as excited!
Happy Birthday, America!
Hayden got to see both of his cousins this week! On Monday, Ailee, Heather, and Jeff came to visit ... Grandma and Grandpa Kinnan came too, so Hayden had a blast getting to run around with another littler person! We had a great day and a barbeque with the biggest steaks ever! Dad Kinnan grilled and they were sssssooooooooo good!
Hayden and mommy got to go to Grandma and Grandpa Kerby's this week, too! We spent all day Friday playing with cousin Liz ... we especially liked the activity table with water and sand ... a very exciting combination for toddlers!
Hayden got to "help" Grandpa Kerby, Uncle Pete, and Uncle Ryan put siding on the house ...
Actually, he just provided the "technical support" from Pete's truck ... which basically involves trying to honk the horn and push buttons. He LOVED this truck almost as much as the food Grandpa Kerby grilled for us on Friday night! On Saturday we got to go shopping with Grandma Kerby! Hayden discovered his newest favorite thing ... matchbox cars! He spent the whole visit playing with them and saying "beep, beep, beep!" No wonder he likes the real truck so much!
Ok ... so, the matchbox cars are actually a fun new thing for mommies and daddies, because they're not mud puddles - Hayden's other discovery this weekend! It had just rained and so Grandma and Grandpa's driveway had a huge puddle in it, and Hayden was determined to investigate it! Mommy finally let him go for it, and although he ended up covered in mud, he had a great time and even got to see some little frogs!
