The photos are from last night. When Kaitlyn talked Sam into wearing the wings he wouldn't let me take a photo. But when she added the eye patch and turned him into a horse he said it was too funny to pass up and that I'd better get a picture :)

I don't know where she got the idea, but yesterday Kaitlyn decided she and Tyler were going to have potato sack races with her pillowcases. They laughed and laughed as they hopped/ran up and down the hall. I thought it was a bit dangerous for a toddler but Ty didn't seem to have a problem with it.

-"I had the Bless Yous all day yesterday" (sneezing and runny nose)
-"the fairy did it!" (when I asked why she colored her leg with a green marker when she was supposed to be taking a nap)
- (trying to avoid brushing her teeth for bed) "Awww, it's no fun when bedtime's every day."
-"Here Mom smell this flower. It smells delightful!"
-as we were outside roasting marshmellows:
K: The fire is pretty. Even prettier than my hair.
Me: Prettier than your hair??
K: Yeah, when you do my hair it's beautiful and the fire is even prettier.
-after twirling and twirling in circles Kaitlyn says "Do you know how dizzy I am? 40 miles dizzy!"
-"I can't be patient! I'm not a good waiter!"

After we finally convinced Kaitlyn that there was more to see than just the falls we headed further up the canyon stopping at the Hayden's Peak Overlook and then at one of the many small lakes up there - Moosehorn, I think. There was a bit of snow up there on one of the side hills - not unexpected at 10, 759 feet (that's what the sign at the top of the pass said) I guess. Probably due to the storm we had on Labor Day. Anyway... The kids started throwing rocks in the lake and we had a really really hard time getting them to get back in the car so we could go back home for lunch. Kaitlyn kept insisting that we had to walk all the way around the lake, throwing rocks in as we went. Oh to be young and have boundless energy! We were all tired after the morning outside. Ty slept for most of the ride home then actually went down for another nap after lunch time. The rest of us grabbed a bit of a snooze then too. Why is having fun so exhausting?
We took a ton of photos. Hope you enjoy the slideshow. I am very proud of myself for narrowing it down from over 80 to just over 20 (Audrey is laughing at me as she reads this, I know it!) :)

She LOVES her Hello Kitty backpack.
And this is the quick shot I got in the classroom. She was smiling but I guess I was slow catching it and didn't realize I caught a funny face until just now.
Oh yes, one of the things Kaitlyn did to try to distract herself from thinking about school was to do Tyler's hair. She mowhawk'd the front and forgot to do anything about the cowlick in the back LOL
And here is Kaitlyn showing me the homework folder she decorated. The 2 people on the right are her and her teacher, Miss Myndi. The one on the left is Talking Tyler (as opposed to Tyler her brother - this is how she differentiates). She had drawn him because they "were supposed to draw a picture of one of their best friends."
