So cute!!!

Kaya's kitten, Lilly, sleeping in the baby carrier!! Such a sweet kitten!!!

Trip to the zoo.....

Lisa and I took the kids to the zoo and had a really good time!!! Next week we are going to the Science Center!! I looked at a calender and realized summer break was almost over and we really haven't done much besides ride horses, swim, and a couple weekends we camped in the trailer. I have a feeling the next 3 weeks are going to be crazy!!!
All 4 kids wanted to ride the camel at once!! Marshall, Morgan, Kaya, and Clayton!!
The baby camel wanted to kiss Kaya!! LOL

Building fence with Papa Bill.....

Clayton and Mike!! Clay is never too far from Mike!
I found these pics and thought I would put them on the blog!! The kids helping Papa Bill build fence to keep the cows in. Clay all decked out in his 'workin' gear and Kaya in her boots....how cute!!

Riding in 'motion'....

I love these two pictures of Clayton and Kaya riding. Kaya is trotting KayCee all by herself and Clayton is trying to make Andre' lope!! It takes a lot of kicking to make Andre' lope and Clay is giving it his all!!! Too cute!!!

Kaya with Grandma and Grandpa Byers

Cute picture of Kaya and Grandma and Grandpa Byers at her dance recital!! What a great picture of all of them!!

4th of July fun!!!

Uncle David, my mom's brother...his wife, Marsha....then Aunt Nancy, my mom's sister. Uncle david and Marsha drove from Texas and then picked up Aunt Nancy in Nebraska and then drove to my mom's house in Iowa for the 4th of July!! It was so AWESOME seeing family that I haven't seen for a really long time, like only 2-4 times that I remember in my life. Clayton and Kaya loved meeting them and loved that they brought dogs!! The 4th of July was so special having them there....and was even more special that my brother, his wife, and the twins came!!! I didn't take but maybe 7 pictures the whole weekend because I was having so much fun. I hope we can find a date next summer and meet up again!!!
Kaya had fun meeting her Aunt Nancy, my mom's sister, for the first time!!
Clayton and Uncle David, my mom's brother!! Clay had sooo much fun with him all weekend over the 4th!! Great times with FAMILY!!!

Toot and Lilly....two new kittens!!

Clayton and Kaya couldn't wait to go pick their kittens up at Brent and Denise's house. Clay named his kitten 'toot' and Kaya named her kitten 'smokey' until we realized it was a girl so she changed it's name to 'Lilly'. How exciting for them!! I remeber having kittens as a kid and love seeing Clayton and Kaya enjoy and develope a love for animals!! I am writing this post the day after we got the kittens and they are wanting to go out to the barn every minute to check on them. I love it!!
