Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Kate and I were going to go on a walk today, but didn't make it out of the complex. Too many fun things going on! Jen, a neighbor, ended up getting a pool out for the three girls. I absolutely love this pic. They had such a blast together.
These three girls are a few months apart and each have the cutest personalities. We have Kate on the right, Hannah on the left, and Evanie in the back. Doesn't this make you want to be little again?

Tomorrow our ward is celebrating Pioneer Day with a pie social and the kids are going to walk in a parade. I'm wondering if Kate is old enough to do it. She does like to be with the big kids, so I might give it a try. I'm not sure if she knows that she's a baby. Whenever she sees big kids, like 5 or 6 years old, she always says, "baby!" The kids hate being called "baby" by an actual baby, but I find it pretty entertaining.

I totally forgot the camera yesterday, but we all went rock climbing in Rock Canyon with Dustin's friend yesterday. Last time I went I used some really good shoes and didn't have a problem getting up, but Dustin and I didn't rent any this time. Bad idea. We both ended up going bare foot! Our shoes had no traction, so we took our shoes and socks off and put chalk on them. I am so sore today because my feet were slipping and I had to use a lot more upper body strength (which I don't have) instead of my legs. Next time we are definitely renting shoes! Kate was such a good sport, and even tried to climb up some rocks. Summer in Utah rocks because there's so much to do outside. At least I think so :)

Get that corn outta my face!

Tonight we gave Kate lasagna and corn for dinner. However, she ate no lasagna and an ENTIRE can of corn! She refused to eat anything besides corn (well, she did have Go-Gurt before dinner). This picture is taken at the very end when I think she finally realized, "Was that a whole can of corn?" All I can say is, her upcoming diapers are gonna be a doozy.

I'm a Big Kid Now

I think Mom's been holding out on me. Church is definitely not the place for me to run around and have fun. Mom and Dad are kind of boring. I mean, who wants to sit in class when they can run around or smash Nilla Wafers on the piano bench? Well, I finally went to a place they call "Nursery." I'm not totally sure what it is, but it's a WHOLE LOT BETTER than what I've done in the past. Not only are there kids my age, but they have books, toys, snacks, even a slide! All I know is, I'm NEVER going back to classes with Mom and Dad.

It does stink a little right now because Mom has to stay with me until I'm 18 months. Something about a transition month. I couldn't care less what that means, but I would rather not have Mom telling me not to hit or hug boys when they're pulling away from me. Sheesh. Once she's gone, I'll be kissin' them. I've done it before.

In nursery we all sat on a blanket and went on a lion hunt together! I wasn't sure what to do, so I watched the other kids. I'll get it someday. We sing about ducks and monkeys, and sometimes we march around the room. Then the teacher tells us a story about Jesus before we play with the toys. We learned about the Holy Ghost and then we got to sit at a table and color a paper they gave us. Here's mine:
It's not my best work, but Mom seems to like it. It's even on the fridge. What a crazy lady.

My favorite part about nursery are the books and the slide. I wish I had my own slide, because then I could climb up the slide and not have to wait for my turn to go down. Nothing like the wind in my face on the way down!

When it's almost time to go, we all help clean up. I like putting things in the buckets, but I'll admit I get distracted sometimes. There are so many toys to play with! (Mom needs to work on our collection) Then the teacher blows bubbles for us to pop. I couldn't get any, so a nice lady picked me up and was helping me reach the bubbles.

I tell ya, nursery's the life. I can't wait to go back next week! It's Dad's turn to go with me. Maybe I can get away with more stuff.

Really, Kim...Really??

As you can tell, I'm totally getting Mother of the Year. Kate loves snacking on Cheerios, so what do I decide to do? Give her the whole box. She loves to walk around with it while snacking and it looks so cute. Well, didn't turn out so cute. (And you should see our car. Cereal EVERYWHERE. She's a little obsessed with it and I totally understand. I mean, I have it for at least 2 meals a day.)

"Why?" I ask myself that question multiple times a day. I swear I give in to Kate way too easily.

For instance, she loves Go-Gurt. The other day she got into the fridge (yes, she can open the fridge. and no, I'm not happy about it.) and brought out a Go-Gurt. So I open it for her and she eats a little bit. Well, then she gets another one and refuses to eat the one that it open and wants to eat the new one. This went on for awhile, so now I have 4 opened Go-Gurts in the freezer.

Really, Kim...Really??

I'm thinking I need to learn how to put my foot down.
