At the Apple Orchard it rained every day we were in Washing ton and on this day it was very foggy as well. It was gorgeous!
Kaia and Daddy off to find some apples

Grandpa Paul picking apples

Grandpa Paul, Daddy and Kaia making sure they only get the good ones =)
The apples were awesome we made carrot apple juice everyday after for breakfast and it is now Kaia's favorite.

Kaia and Daddy at the Apple Orchard
Me, Kaia, Grandpa Paul, and Daddy

Grandma Julie and Kaia

Making sure that the apples are good

Our bucket of apples
Munching on some tasty apples

Look they are yummy
Walking up to the apple orchard, you have to walk through all the squash to get there

Making our way through to the apples

Kaia couldn't wait she had to eat an apple right away

After picking Apples we went to a candy shop down the road and in the back they had Llamas and roosters

You can see an rooster escaped Kaia loved them and calls them Cockles because of the sounds they made
Looking at the Llamas
The super huge Rooster this one was twice the size of any of the others

At the mall play area Kaia had a lot of fun and was able to get out some of her energy

The tree slide was her favorite
Super super fast

Kaia made a new friend named Libby they played so well together they both had that strong type A personality. Which was perfect for both of them. Kaia just needs another child who can hold their own with her.
Helping Grandma make the Turkey for our early thanksgiving
Helping with spices

So innocent right, this child would never try and take steal a whole turkey.
Or maybe she would

My Dad has a dog named Bear. Bear is a Leonberger. He is absolutely gorgeous and the size of a pony. I wish I had taken a picture that showed his size a little better these pictures just don't do him justice.
Bear was very fast, Kaia absolutely loved him and after feeding him a cookie demanded that Bear get some cheese. It is Kaia's favorite treat and also Bears. I think they may have bonded over this commonality.

Eating our early Thanksgiving. Kaia apparently loves sugar snap peas we knew she loved peas. Infact, she will eat peas over just about any other food the only exception may be cheese. This is slightly embarrassing or maybe just a little gross but she was even putting them in her ice cream and eating them.
Grandma Julie and Grandpa Paul
Yummy Yummy

At the arcade having fun

She loved this game it was a Star Wars game I think she knew her Uncle Tony would like it
Getting into the game
Hooray for ski ball
Kaia loved it. She actually throws very well

Grandpa played with her
Catching the ball after it didn't quite make it to the end

Kaia's well earned tickets
