We had friends over for a 4th of July "cook out" (that's a BBQ in California language). I rushed to put together our grill the night before the party...This is me praying to the Citronella gods to keep the bugs away from me for a little while longer.
the bugs finally got to me, so I had to finish it the next day...
John, Ray, Michelle, and Melissa (Uzi and Nikita)
We had steak kabobs, veggie kabobs, bbq chicken, potato salad, macaroni salad, grilled corn on the cob, baked beans, mexican dip with chips, and lil' smokies! I guess we didn't take a picture of the spread!
Banana Splits, Apple Pie, and Dr. Pepper Floats for dessert

During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
