August 31, 2007


We went to the State Fair two weeks ago with Katy's grandparents. We had a great time. Katy rode the pony and the carousel. We also tried the skyride. She seemed to like it although her mom was very scared.

Katy was pretty alarmed when she saw her grandparents; she was probably worried that she might spend another week in Reno again. Even though she has been saying she "wuv" Grandma all week long, when the grandparents were here, she stayed far away from them. Many times, she would tell her mom that she wanted to go to "Katy's house, no Grandma's." I guess it will be a while before we can send her there again.

We went back to the fair last Friday. The weather was fabulous. It was cool and breezy, very unusual in Sacramento in August. When we told Katy we were going to the fair, she was so happy and said she wanted Dolly horsey. She remembered the pony's name. Of course she rode the same pony again. And the carousel. She also tried a couple of other rides and loved them. I think she is ready for Disneyland. We stayed pretty late. By the time we got home, Katy said she wanted to sleep. She was one exhausted and happy girl.

It was really nice to be able to spend time together as a family. Katy's daddy is taking a break this semester, so that is a treat.

She Did It Herself

We got her some of those Hello Kitty roller stamps and she decided it was a good idea to try them out on her face. Maybe this is what she will look like in 10 years when she starts experimenting with make-up.

Katy spent a week at her grandparents' last week. It was very strange the first few days. I think I spend more money on her when she is not around. When we went pick her up, we noticed right away that she spoke much, much better and clearer. Makes a big difference when a kid receives lots of attention, no?
