K: I bet our church was the first one in this city.
Me: Hmm, maybe. I bet we could do some research to see the history of churches in this area.
K: OF COURSE it was ours. FIRST Baptist Church.
K: Taco Bueno. That means "taco good." That makes no sense. It should be Bueno Taco.
K: I'm making you a sunflower for Mother's Day!
Me: Don't tell me that! Let me be surprised!
K: Ok. (pause) Hey, guess what? The flower in my cup at school is growing!
Me: Cool! What kind of flower is it? Oh, wait... Don't answer that.
K (explaining nursery rhymes to me): So, this little piggy ate roast beef, but this little piggy had none. He was probably a vegetarian.
K: Can you bring me any book you want and I will read it to you? Any book. I support Curious George.
K, after a family member's funeral where she chose to sit quietly by herself: I'm starving! All I had to eat this whole time were those Tic Tacs in my purse!
Me: Are you saying you ate a box of Tic Tacs during the funeral?
K: Yes, and we need to buy some more, that orange flavor is delicious!
K: I cried on the last day of school. Other kids were crying, so I figured I might as well.
Me: I need to eat, I'm starving.
K: You mean you're hangry?
K: What is New Mexico?
Me: It's a state, remember?
K: There's already a Mexico. Why would they build another one?
K: Are cars expensive?
Me: Yes! They can be $20,000 or more, sometimes less.
K: Whoa. I don't think ANYTHING should be that expensive. That's just wastin' all your money!
K: Ryan!!!! 1... 2... bad things happen on 3, Ryan.
K, to Ryan after playfully scaring Daddy: And THAT'S how you scare a man!!!
K, while playing ball with Ryan: I have a bad feeling about this.
K, in a whisper during church: My intestines hurt.
Nana, explaining The Brady Bunch: ...So a lady who had three girls married a man who had three boys.
K: Why is it called The Brady Bunch?
Nana: That was their last name.
K: Oh. I thought the lady braided the girls' hair a lot.

We had a good time celebrating the 4th of July... well, most of us. We learned three things about Ryan: 1) He hates fireworks; 2) He is freakishly strong; 3) He DOES NOT like boundaries or to be constrained. And that's the most detail I'll go into because there just aren't enough words and also I don't want to relive that experience again. :)
But we had lots of fun with cousins and grandparents and splashing and playing outside! (Papa and Grandad, somehow I didn't get pictures with y'all! Sorry! We had fun with y'all, too!)
Ryan is angrily pushing Zoe because he wants her out of the car
