Tree Planting

Yesterday we went up to my Uncle Laure' and Aunt Jenifer's property near Kings Canyon National Park.  The goal was to plant little Christmas trees and have a lot of family fun...both goals were achieved and here's the proof!

 Hollowed out logs make good forts!

Planting Christmas Trees!  In a few years we get to go back up and harvest them for Christmas! I think the plan is to go back up every year and add more so that they continue to grow and can be harvested for years to come.  





 Putting the sawdust around the trees for insulation.


 Kaylee loves Kylie and Kylie was the perfect babysitter even though she was sound asleep!


 John, hard at work


 Some of the gang


The highlight of the trip was when cousin Philip took the little girls on tractor rides.  Kaylee was in Heaven.  She loves tractors, and Philip too!


 Driving home



Less than 5 minutes into the ride home....

Looks like fun! Love the pic of Kaylee sleeping in the car. :)

Then

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!
