Grandparents Reading Dora

You have to love Grandparents. Dad and Jan were out to visit for Kinley's baptism this past weekend. We had lots of fun driving to the mountains, swimming at the hotel pool, and enjoying the hospitality offered by Embassy Suites. Before heading out this morning, Kya requested that Grandpa and Grandma read a book for her before going to bed last night. And just to make things interesting, she chose a Dora book. One of the great things about Dora is that she mixes a little Spanish in with the mostly English writing to encourage kids reading the books to learn Spanish. Great for young kids whose minds are sponges and no one really cares how they say the words. Also great for Brooke and I as we listened to Grandpa try to pronounce words like "Gracias" (pronounced Grashiass) and "Hola" (pronounced Hola like you would say Holy). Lots of good laughter for us, and for Kya. But one thing is certain, while the Spanish pronunciation may be lacking at times, Kya loved having her grandparents from Michigan here for a few days and they love her. Looking forward to the next visit...

I loved all your pictures... whenever you send them the kids and I make an event of it... we all sit on the couch, get a snack, and they ask me who every one is and by the end of the slide show they have got it down and they can tell me about your whole family... it's so fun!! I'm glad that you had a nice weekend :) Love ya :)
