Looking back

I haven’t slept well lately. I have been up late thinking about Kooper, thinking of all these things I haven't done that I have wanted to do for him or things I want to do in his memory which I have posted about before(but that’s for another post). The other day I was going through some old photos on the computer and I came across these…P1000427 P1000428 P1000430


Ryan’s co-workers through him a baby shower on June 17, 2008. (Exactly 1 year to the date that Kamryn was born. I just noticed that as I looked at the date on the picture). He brought home a bunch of presents including this bag full of baby stuff with the balloons attached. Kade had a ball with it and he even got a toy out of it (the toys surrounding the bag). He pretended he was Curious George. I can’t believe how little he looks! I wish I could go back in time and change how things ended up.

Many of Ryan’s co-workers were so good to us and still are, especially during that hard trial with were faced with. He was lucky to have such good support at work. I got time off after having Kooper to recover from his birth but Ryan didn’t get 8 weeks like I did he had to go back to reality much sooner. He had people there that were caring and kind to him during such a hard time for our family. I am so grateful for them.

Random pictures from March

P1040684 P1040709 P1040712 P1040722Keegan dropped his bottle for Kamryn’s sippy cup. So switching from bottle to sippy doesn’t seem like it will be much of a problem.

 P1040733Kade has a new room! Just kidding. This is my parent’s kennel for their horse dog Harley.

 P1040735Think it might be  a little bright during naptime? Whenever I have gone to wake Kamryn up from a nap I find her with the blanket over her head. She has a big girl bed now that we will move her into as soon as we find/get a bottom mattress for the trudle because it’s high off the ground and we don’t want her to fall off at night and hurt herself!


Keegan’s new shoes. He hasn’t like to wear any of the shoes I have tried on or actually bought and returned because they are too hard on the bottom. So I decided to order some cute Pedipeds for him. Kamryn had a pair that she wore all the time and I loved them. Keegan hasn’t even tried to pull them off yet and it’s been almost a week. P1040848 P1040849

This little man is growing up too fast. In this picture he was clapping (which he just started doing) and then today he crawled up to one of the small chairs and started pushing it around while walking and then pushing the Buzz bike thing of Kamryn’s around while walking. He was also getting his second tooth in this picture! Look at those rosy cheeks. Yep the little guy has 2 teeth now. i am surprised since Kamryn only had 1 barely on her first birthday.  He also like to dance/bounce to music. So funny!

Last day of spring break at the zoo

So Saturday my parents left back to Utah . I am sad they are gone and can’t believe that we have to wait until Summer to see them again. We had lots of fun while they were here. Here are a few from their recent visit. They brought their dog Harley. He is such a funny dog.

I have been contemplating getting a pass to a museum or something that I can take the kids to do when they really just need to get out of the house especially as the school year is getting closer to being over I definitely need to have some ideas for Kade to keep him busy. So we went to the local Zoo and Aquarium to check it out.  I know next time we go to wear tennis shoes!

I loved the baby porcupine! At first there were just two adults sitting there and then some food was dropped off by the zookeeper and out came the baby from hiding! (I wonder what they call baby porcupines?)  P1040827

They have a log ride (similar to Lagoon for those that have been only there isn’t a line here) that Kade wanted to go on sooo bad. He met the height requirements to go alone and he wanted to go alone. I didn’t really want to get wet or spend another 6 dollars for myself to go so he went all by himself. Ryan heard a few people say, “I can’t believe they are letting their kid go by himself.” Well he wanted to and he met the requirements. I think it’s good to test of independence.  Ryan and I were a little worried that he would get scared, especially when it started it’s climb to the top of the boat ride but he had a lot of fun and wanted to go again. I wasn’t willing to fork out another 6 dollars for him to go again. 

P1040828He is soo excited to go!

We didn’t spend much time in the aquarium because I needed to go home and rest up. I had to work that night. So here are a few pictures of us in the aquarium. I didn’t get pictures of us touching/petting stingrays…maybe next time!


When it was time to go we decided to buy a pass. It is nice and close to our house so we can go for short periods of time and not feel rushed and not feel bad if one of the kids just isn’t wanting to be there we can go and it’s a short ride home. Can’t wait to take the kids and see the whole aquarium next time.

Visit from grandma and Grandpa (the March visit)


Grandma and Grandpa took Kade and Kamryn to the park while Ryan and I went to Target to fill a prescription. Here are a few pictures of them there.DSC00133 DSC00135 DSC00138 DSC00147 DSC00148 DSC00164This is what happened when they gave her a granola bar….

We also went to the outlets to do a little shopping and Kamryn wasn’t feeling the carseat that day so I bribed her to be good by giving her a twix….well as you can see it ended up all over! Tired little girl! P1020244 P1020246

Kad likes his “blue drink”!
