We had a fun weekend. Friday afternoon Kayla, my mom and I finally got together with my cousin Leah and her kids. We took the kids to the park and had a nice time chatting & letting the kids run. Kayla and Trevor had a fun time together. You wouldn't guess there was an almost three year age difference between them. And we finally got to meet Autumn. She is absolutely adorable! What beautiful dark eyes and hair. She sure is a cutie. She was cooing and smiling the whole time. Precious!
Today we woke up at the crack of dawn to take the kids fishing. Every year Gardnerville (a town 10 minutes south of us) holds a fishing derby for the kids. It's free and the kids have a blast. They stock a section of the river with trout and the kids get an hour and a half to catch up to two fish each. This was the first time Kayla had ever been fishing and she loved it. They actually had a hard time catching anything for the first hour. When they announced we had twenty minutes left Andy and Jake had both caught their maximum but Kayla and Wes hadn't caught anything. I was beginning to worry they'd run out of time. And I know my daughter. She was bored by then and if she didn't catch anything she'd never want to go fishing again. Well, wouldn't you know it, both kids caught two fish in the last ten minutes. Kayla caught her last one right as they were announcing the time was up! Thank God! Anyway, I've posted a few pictures below... Phil's parents went along with us to help, too. We had a blast!
P.S. We close on our new house in three weeks! Can't wait!
