We brought more home from Minnesota than just memories!

We had such a great time in Minnesota - visiting with family, going to the fair and of course eating lots of food! :) (Which tends to happen when you get a large group of people together :))

We saw this sign in the horse barn, at the fair, and could not resist.

Crazy hats at the Fair with crazy people.

(L to R - Brad, Molly, Sarah, Grant, Uncle John)

And on our way home with picked up Chloe from my Aunt Joy and Uncle Jason's. One of their cats had had a litter of kittens, and we are now the proud parents of one of them! :)

Chloe is a source of laughter in our home (and to be honest, frustration* at times). She has so much energy! As a very active kitten she loves toes, climbing up pant legs, batting at my backpack, sending/chasing jellybeans across the room and, if you get lucky, curling up on your lap for a nap. It has been so much fun to see her grow, in 2 weeks, from a timid kitten, trying not to be too scared of her new surroundings, to a confident (sometimes too much so) kitten (she is getting bigger every day!), making sure nothing gets in her way.

*We get a bit frustrated when she wakes us up at 2 or 3 in the morning wanting to play. :)

Life is ever changing at the Kidder house, work is going well for Brad, and work/school is going well for Sarah. We have realized that the summer is over :(, but are excited for some fun things this fall! We are having an Office Party next Thursday night, as our beloved show begins again. And in October we are looking forward to having Brad's parents and some friends come stay with us for a weekend as they explore Chicago. We are also headed down south mid-October for a trip to see Sarah's family.

Well that is all for now, we will check in again soon! :)
