A Day Full Of Fun

This morning we visited our local Border's for a celebrity appearance from Kate's idol, Dora The Explorer. The bookstore was packed with families waiting to meet the famous backpack-toting adventurer. My camera was on the wrong setting at first. But, I thought the pictures of Kate on Ken's shoulder getting her first glimpse of Dora were just too cute to not include.

Kate was so psyched to see Dora, until it was her turn to take a picture with her. Since the line was long there wasn't a lot of time to warm up to Dora before the picture. Kate wouldn't let go of Daddy, as you can tell by her grip on his shirt. And she was more interested in looking at Dora then posing and smiling for the camera. Thus, the very serious face. It's no wonder she wanted to look at Dora. This Dora was a little scary looking, compared to the cute little dark-haired girl and her sidekick monkey you see on TV. Ken thought this Dora looked more like a bad pinata than a person.

Although she doesn't look thrilled in this picture, her Polaroid with Dora is a prized possession. She's shown it with pride to everyone she knows.

Speaking of pinatas...after our Dora appearance we went home for a good nap before heading over to Dominic's house for his fifth birthday celebration. Most of the kids were a little bit older than Kate but she had a blast.

She pulled a string on the pinata. And filled up her bag with goodies. She had the best time jumping around in the bounce house. She also enjoyed playing with Dominic's miscellaneous toys around the house. By the end of the night she was good and tired (and dirty). That Dominic sure knows how to throw a party!

Just curious about how many words that Kate can say now. Is she speaking phrases or sentences? Best wishes!!! Posted by: Michelle at August 4, 2005 02:33 PM
Robert and I were reading Kate's blog this morning and the first thing Robert said when he saw Dora... "Wow, Dora looks a little scary." But what was really noticeable is that Kate is looking more like a little girl and less like baby Kate. Posted by: Jerri Ann at August 14, 2005 03:25 PM
