For Labor Day this year we of course spent the weekend in Leadville. Though this weekend we also were going to be sharing our place with our friends the Medoffs. Anytime we have other kids up to the cabin the girls are stoked. They love their friends. Kayla was no exception this time. She was going to be having her very own friend Zoe around this time. Usually she is the only a baby around. Friendships at this age are always funny. They want to play together but they are also very paranoid about what the other kid is doing. A lot of mine’s and no’s being heard between the two of them. But, by the end of the weekend they were getting much better with sharing.
One very funny development over the weekend was Kayla’s attachment to Zoe’s Mom, Jen. She would follow Jenn around like a puppy and want her to pick her up constantly. After a few hours Kayla even started calling Jen, Mom. While I thought this was hilarious I wasn’t so sure of the “Mom” thing. This was until I realized that while Jen was always “Mom.” I was always Mama or Mommy. I wasn’t forgotten.
We took the kiddos to Turquoise Lake for a bit. The two little girls fought over a bag of popcorn for maybe an hour. Once they were full they were all about the water. Even given how cold it was. (Love the comb over Kayla)
I learned that trying to get two 2 year olds, one 5 year old, one 6 year old and one 8 year old to pose for a photo is impossible. Lots of giggling and goofiness going on. Oh well, I did my best.
On the way back from the lake Kayla demanded on walking Wyatt. She is really into puppies and kitties right now and I think she finally realized that she has a puppy of her own. Hopefully she gives him a little well deserved attention.
We all had a great weekend with great food and friends. I didn’t get enough pictures. Must have been preoccupied.
