Gotta love this one. Don't you just want to kiss that little pouty (sp?) lip?! Our poor little guy has had a wee cold/cough for a few days.

Kristie and Kai took an extra 2 week vacation to get more time with family and friends. Poor Justin was left all alone in Hawaii to catch up on golf, hit the beach, and play hoops until his heart was content.

Kristie had a ball, galavanting around Salt Lake. She was able to visit former co-workers and took a chance at the "Crazy Buffet" (wouldn't recommend that one). It was fun to spend time catching up and introduce Kai to everyone.

A monkey's uncle...
Hey Grandma, what are you doing way in the back?? Just kidding. Great grandparents!

Papa and Mamuse (dad and mom Blake) loved holding the little peanut.

Kai loves his baths. He's even waving to the camera.

Kim and Brinley got their chances to hold Kai. As you can see, timing is everything!

Kai wanted us to tell you all that he had so much fun on his visit and can't wait to come back soon. Aloha!

We made a stop in Pocatello to introduce Kai to his great-grandma and grandpa Thomas. There were smiles all around, as you can see.

Kai began "speaking" more than he ever has on this trip, thanks to the interactive efforts of many, like Auntie Jayne and cousin Audri.

While we were home, we got to see the new digs for Chem-Dry of Boise and Treasure Valley. Thanks to one of the Assistants to the President, Jeffrey James (seen in the grey fleece on the left), we took a royal tour of the impressive new facility. It was easy to see the continuing vision that has surrounded the company since Dad invested in it nearly 30 years ago. Major congrats, good luck in the next few months, and may success continue to come your way.

Kai sees his cousins for the first time, seen here with Sidney and Carson; Abby, Maddy, and Gracie. Kristie and I took our first trip with baby Kai up to Idaho and Utah. This was Kai's first time on a plane, first time in the snow, and his first time seeing most family members and friends. It wasn't long before he got his first runny nose, too -- so now he snores as loud as his mommy. Hopefully it's only temporary -- a man can only handle so much. We smiled and laughed a lot, watching everyone interact with him, pat his head, shove fingers in his mouth...everything a baby gets exposed to when visiting cousins.
