Kangaroo Zoo

Yesterday, my good friend Tiff and I took our kids to Kangaroo Zoo. It is a new place in Woods Cross that is full of inflatable toys. We had a blast. Well, I know that my kids and I did. I hope Tiff and Olivia did as well. It was so nice to just get out of the house and let the kids run around crazy. My kids are totally brave and would climb the highest slide with no hesitation. Tiff's little girl, Olivia was also brave as we took her on many slides that I am sure she would never venture on by herself. I love getting together with friends and having a good time!

I was hard to get a good picture when all the kids were constantly moving, so these will have to do. I guess that means they had fun if they were too busy to slow down!

Princess Bike

Sophie has just recently made the upgrade to a real bike. After noticing that her knees hit the handel bars with each pedal, I decided that it was time for an upgrade. She chose a pink princess bike that she absolutely LOVES! She is pretty good on it, although her skills are getting progressively worse instead of better, which is interesting. In fact last time she rode it she ran smack into the mail box because she forgot how to brake. She has a pretty good attitude about it and talks about how she needs to keep trying! I love Soph and look forward to going on some bike rides with her--when she gets brave enough to ride a little faster!:)

Building the bike!

Almost ready to ride--Soph can hardly wait!

And away she goes!

Soph loves her daddy to ride his bike with her--only he can't really ride they are moving so slow. He usually has to sit on the seat and walk the bike!

It's That Time of Year

It's that time of year--time for Lagoon to open for the summer. Sophie has been anxiously awaiting this day since our last trip to Lagoon in October of last year. She has probably asked once a week all winter long if "rocket faster" is open yet. We love Lagoon and are so grateful for our season passes that Logan's mom gave us for Christmas. We have made several visits so far this year and look forward to many more. The kids have the best time and are total dare devils. One of Sophie's most favorite rides is the Tidal Wave. She is by far the youngest rider rasing her hands high in the air with each swing of the boat all the while her bum is totoally flying off teh seat! It is the funniest sight. Here are a few good pictures for our last trip.

Big News!

So if you ask Sophie what is in her mommy's tummy she replies, "A girl baby just like me!" Well, we will have to see--but we ARE expecting! Our family of 4 will soon be growing to 5. We are due in December and are very excited. I had my first doctors appointment a couple of weeks ago which made it seem real. We were able to have an ultra sound and see our tiny new baby. I would have posted the pictures, but the baby was so little--maybe the next ones after some growing has taken place, and it starts to resemble the human figure!

Zoo Trip

I have enjoyed making some trips to the zoo on the few warm days that we have been having lately. Sophie and Collin love the zoo. On this trip I went with my good friend Tiff and her adorable little girl, Olivia. It was a fun day. I tend not to take too many pictures at the zoo, but Sophie begged me to take this picture and I thought it was cute, so here it is!

Thanksgiving Point

My mom has been dying to go to Thanksgiving Point for the Tulip Festival, so on Saturday my mom, my sister (who is visiting from Seattle), two of my nieces, and me and my two kids loaded up the minivan and set off on our adventure. It was a fun day. We were freezing most of the time, but we still had a good time. My kids loved running around with their cousins, and I loved not having to watch them every second:)! The flowers were pretty and after visiting two gardens we were totally worn out--except for my mom. As my sister stated, "You get mom around flowers, and she has more energy that any of us!" Thanks for the trip mom, it was a lot of fun.

Sorry about the tons of pictures, but there were so many cute ones that I had a hard time narrowing them down:)

My Princesses!

A couple of weeks ago, Logan told me to come upstairs and bring the camera. This is what I walked into. My two sweet children dressed up as princesses! Collin has alwasy enjoyed dressing up, especially in GIRL stuff. He totally prefers Sophi's shoes over his own, and loves to wear all of Sophie's jewelry. I thought they were so cute. Logan told me that he was asking to have his dress taken off before I came up so he just told him that he was beautiful, and he was again content to be a princess. On many mornings when I dress Collin he will say, "I bewful!"

Logan came up with the idea that we should all dress up as princesses for Halloween this year. I am not so sure it will happen but it would be funny!
