Time with Family

We had a Bar-B-Que Contest this past weekend in Hot Springs, AR. We got to spend some time with family. We placed 33 out of 102 teams. Which is not bad considering we have not cooked many competitions for this style of BBQ (Kansas City). We usually cook Memphis style.

Kayla with Austin and Allison...she loves spending time with her cousins!
Kayla with her Daddy, Pappaw, Poppie, & Grammie (sorry I cut part of her out when I took the picture!). We were waiting on results and Kayla had about all she could take of that day.

New Ride

Kayla got a new ride-on thing. She has trouble riding it forward by herself, but she is pretty good at going backward. She has learned to say the word "ride" when she wants you to put her on it.

2008 Cotton Pickin' Beauty Pageant

Kayla was in the 2008 Cotton Pickin' Beauty Pageant. She won Most Photogenic for her age group based on some pictures that I turned in.
This was during our practice walk-through on the stage. Kayla has started taking a few steps on her own, but that's about it. I carried her out onto the stage, then helped her walk from one spot to another, then carried her off the stage.
This was while her age division was getting their awards. They did not do any crowing until the end, which made for a long morning for Kayla since she missed her nap.

1st Trip to the Zoo

Kayla and I took our 1st trip to the Memphis Zoo together. She LOVED it! Most of the pictures I took have the back of her head because she was too busy looking at the animals to look at me for pictures.
We had the flamingos in the background of this one. Of course, there is her bracelet again.
This was in the Butterfly area. That was really neat! It was a garden of beautiful flowers and butterflies were just EVERYWHERE in there.
After she saw the Panda Bears, she just had to have one and loves all over it.
Here she is looking at one of the Panda Bears. It was feeding time.
The Memphis Zoo just had a baby giraffe. It was a little cutie!

Labor Day

Here is Kayla on Labor Day. At noon on Labor Day 2008, Dove Season opened here in Tennessee. Doesn't she just look so cute in the camo dress that her Nonnie (Tasha's mom) got her?!?!
She is not walking on her own yet, but will walk holding on to anyting.

Her Daddy just loves when they match in their camo outfits.
Yes, we make it a family affair and Kayla matched with Mommy too. By the way, she wears the braclets everywhere we go, even Sunday School and Church.
