Mr. Kitty!

July 31, 2009

The other day we bought Kylie this walker/ride-on lion. She has been so interested in walking and this toy is perfect! She absolutely loves her "Kitty!" When you press his nose, it lights up and plays music. She loves it and starts dancing as soon as she sees it. So cute!

Giving baby kisses!

Riding my Lion.

Walking in the front yard.

Doesn't she look like such a big girl?

Do I really have to wear these things?


Acini De Pepe

July 29, 2009

We really though Kylie would enjoy the tiny little acini de pepe noodles... she liked decorating herself with them...


More from Idaho

July 22, 2009

While we were in Idaho I had the opportunity to do a couple engagement sessions. Kylie got to come along with Daddy and she had a great time. She loves showing off for anyone and everyone!

After one of the sessions we had a little mini-sesh with our little Ky.

She does not like grass touching her skin at all. Every time we set her in the grass she sits like this. That's talent!
Gosh, I love them!


Kirby Family Reunion

July 17, 2009

While we were in Idaho we were able to attend the annual Kirby Family Reunion. This year we went camping in Spencer, Idaho. It was so pretty up there and we had so much fun! It was Kylie's first time camping and she did great.

I'm ready Daddy! Let's go!

Getting anxious for our walk around the campgrounds.

Mama and KyKy on our walk.

I love nature walks!

Genuine enthusiasm.

I was being a scary tiger in the forest...

Blowing kisses

Waving at the kids lined up on the sidewalk to watch Kylie in her imaginary parade. Every time she gets in the stroller now, she starts waving and blowing kisses... even when there is no one around.

We survived the first night. Getting ready for pancakes the next morning.

Kylie really wasn't interested in putting any of her baby food into her mouth. She much preferred smearing it on her bib and playing with the jar.

Watching Daddy in his horseshoe tournament with a spaghetti stained face.

Some of the cousins lined up for a whack at their own home-made pinatas.

Wearing the cute little sunhat that we bought just for camping and she refused to keep on her head for more than 4 seconds. She's got a really good arm when it comes to throwing sunhats.

Kylie loves to play "peek-a-boo" but she doesn't always get her hands in the right spot.

Playing with her Auntie Katie.

Getting tickled by Grandma Tracy.

Kylie and her Grandpa Don.



Grandpa Don and Grandma Tracy have about a hundred bunny rabbits! Kylie got to meet one of the new babies. At first she didn't quite know what to think of it, but soon she loved that little bunny.


More Celebrations

On Sunday, the 5th, we played at Grandma Linda's house after church and then went over to Uncle Jerry and Aunt Kim's house for another birthday bbq. This time it was cousin Matthew's 4th birthday bash.

playing with all of Grandma's magazines and books. This is Kylie's idea of getting spoiled!

Kylie's first time jumping on a trampoline. She loved it!

This is fuuuuuuuun!

We should get one of these someday...

She also got to play with bubbles for the first time. Those were fun too!

Happy Birthday Matthew.


4th of July!

We celebrated the 4th in Idaho Falls, Idaho surrounded by some of Mike's family. It was so much fun. We started the afternoon with an 80th Birthday BBQ for Grandma Struhs (Kylie's GG). She only lives a couple blocks from the river so it was the perfect place to spend time before the big show. Just before dark, we headed down to stake out our spot. The fireworks were amazing, as always, and Kylie loved them. Well,the first half at least... she fell asleep on Daddy's lap about halfway through. It was a great 4th!

Enjoying a gorgeous Idaho summer day!

Our nephew, Braden, and Mike.

Trying to figure out that silly cousin, Braden.

Kylie and her Auntie Erin. They had a blast together.

Cousins, Paeton and Braden and Kylie. Braden really wanted to hold Kylie and Paeton wanted so badly to take her for a ride in her wagon.

Playing with Mommy.

So excited for our walk down to see the fireworks.

Hanging out before the show.

All bundled up. We forgot what cold feels like after living in Arkansas for so long.

So pretty.
