Busy Social Calendar!

We spent 9 days in CA, then got back to NC just in time for Mandy and Seth to come out here to visit for 7 days! Kaylee wanted to give Aunt Mandy kisses all day long. So Mandy, being such a good aunt, puckered up for a lot of wide-open mouth kisses from Kaylee.

"No Aunt Mandy! I can do it myself!"


Then John, Kim, and Chandon came up to Sanford for the second half of the Haak NC Trip! Chandon is about to turn 5 years old and so we set out on a mission to keep him busy. One day we drove the 1 1/2 hours to the Asheboro Zoo. This would have been a great day of animals and fun except for the 102 degree weather outside. We made it half way through the park and had to leave for fear of heat stroke! Luckily Chandon and Kaylee both seemed to enjoy the animals that we did see so it was worth the trip.
Kaylee thought the Puffins swimming under the water were funny. She followed them really well and laughed at them.

In front of the Mountain Lion habitat. He could have been fake for all we knew...he never moved from his tree stump.

The next day we went to Marbles Kid Museum in Raleigh. We all had a good time, what a fun place!

Then we went to a park where of course Kaylee HAD to swing. ;)

Fun times with Aunt Mandy and Uncle Seth!!! Can't wait to live closer to them!

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!
