Kings Canyon National Park

We now live 1 hour from the Kings Canyon National Park! I've grown up seeing the redwoods but they are still an awe-inspiring piece of nature. John had today off so after lunch we headed up...and up and up and up through the smog layer, then the fog layer and out we popped at 6,000ft elevation.

Kaylee had a great time picking up sticks and pinecones.

We asked some German tourists to take our picture but I should have just used the timer function...not sure how you take a blurry picture on the auto setting, but here it is.

John should've worn his camo pants too, I wouldn't have been able to find him!

Coming back down the mountain we hit the fog line again and had to pull over for this shot.

We are enjoying being back in California for sure!

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!
