S: Caden Jacob Kennedy 2010
1: Just Being Caden
2: In the coal car
3: January 2010 Your favorite winter activity was jumping in the rock bed around the house. You would jump in the rocks and say, "jump in coal car." It took me a little while to put the pieces together but I finally figured out you were reenacting a scene from the movie The Polar Express where the little boy jumps in the coal car. The rocks made a similar sound to the coal in the coal car.
4: Sledding at Colfax | February 2010
5: You had a rough day at Colfax. Before you even had a chance to go sledding you slipped in the garage at Colfax. As you fell you hit your nose on the Kubota's trailer hitch.! | The right side of your nose took the hardest hit. | Caden and Grandma Pam | Uncle Dave, Adrik, and Aunt Heidi
6: HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY
7: Buzz Lightyear from the movie Toy Story was your favorite right around the time of your second birthday so you had Buzz balloons, Buzz cake, and Buzz invitations.

12: I LOVE Trains
13: 2010 was the year you fell in love with trains. You run around the house making choo choo noises and ding like a railroad crossing. You get excited every time we cross a train track. Whenever we are at Colfax we have to stop and see the train tracks. | May 2010
14: Caden and Grandpa Gale
15: Memorial Day Over the holiday weekend we went to Grandpa Gale and Grandma Jan's Cabin. You loved driving the boat. You would hit the throttle and then instantly pull back on the throttle. We started and stopped the entire way back to the cabin. We also took you to Round Lake Beach. You loved jumping up and landing on your butt in the water. You made quite a SPLASH! | May 2010
16: BLUE ANGEL Airshow June 2010
17: The Blue Angels were in town so we parked on a hill behind the airport and watched the planes from Grandma Pam's car. It was a rainy day but that didn't stop you from having fun.
18: For Father's Day we went for a train ride at Carson Park. The engineer let you sit in his seat and blow the whistle.
19: Happy Father's Day

29: Laying in the dirt. You are all boy! | Adrik and Caden
30: Grandma and Grandpa Otterholt got a new sprinkler for the grandkids to play with. At first the kids were just having fun running through the water but after a while, a huge mud puddle formed. Being the boys that Caden and Adrik are, the mud puddle soon became more fun than the sprinkler. By the time we left, Caden's white socks were brown and he was covered in mud. Uncle Dave got the hose out to spray the boys off. Even that became a game.! | The Muddier The Better! | Caden and Grandpa Gale
31: Family Fun | August 2010 | Uncle Dave spraying you off with the hose
32: Mommy and Daddy's Helper
33: You are such a little helper around the house, yard, and even the grocery store. By far your favorite chore is to help daddy mow the lawn. You get upset if daddy mows the lawn without you. You also like to help mommy make treats. However, I think you like to eat the ingredients more than you like helping make the treats.
34: Fun at Colfax
