So I am pretty behind on blogging, as this happened a few weeks ago, but I bought some blackberries from Hy-Vee, well later that day Kiley was eating so I gave her a handful {she loves them!} She kept asking for more, more more!  She ate the whole container of them {except the 5 that I had!} in that one sitting!  She was a blackberry mess!    I snapped a few photos of her, which were perfect because Hy-Vee is now running a messiest baby contest.  So of course I submitted one of her!   

Here is the link to the contest...

Once there enter Kiley in the search bar and she should pop up!  You can vote once a day!  {although I don't think we can technically win, since Kyle is employed with Hy-Vee..oh well we will see what happens!}

 this is the picture I submitted to the contest! I loved her expression!


Back in May while K and I were in Des Moines for a weekend, we went to the zoo!  Grandma and Aunt Katy joined us as well!     It was so much different this year taking Kiley, she was much more aware of everything, and it was fun to watch her make her animals sounds for the animals she know!  Monkeys are her favorite I think!

 {with the monkeys}
 {loved the giraffes too!}

 {checking out the ducks!}

 {was not to thrilled to sit alone on the train so I could snap a picture! She did much better when I was sitting with her}

 {didn't really enjoy walking across the bridge!}
 {had to take a picture with the alligators for daddy!}
and this is what a zoo does to an almost 2 year old!

At some point I will need to upload a video of Kiley making all of her animal noises!!

Over Mother's Day weekend both of Kiley's god parents graduated!  Aunt Ali graduated from Kansas State University, and Uncle John received his masters at Wichita State University. Kiley and I were able to make the trip down to Kansas to see Ali graduate!  It was a fun weekend getting to see the family!
