Zoo Time :)

The weather has been SO nice here this past week. On Saturday we took the kids to the zoo. It was really busy, but we all had a good time!

This was Cooper's 3rd visit to the zoo! He really likes riding in his baby carrier.

I think Riley's favorite thing is the carousel! She was just laughing the whole time.

Ryan was excited until the carousel started, then he got scared and held on to Casey for most of the ride.

He decided he liked the carousel after it was over :)

The kids thought this green lizard thing was pretty cool

I keep meaning to put more pictures of Cooper on the blog, but I just keep on getting further behind! Cooper is now 8 weeks old and weighs about 14 lbs! He is such a sweet little guy and we love him so much! Ryan is always giving him loves, and Riley thinks it's pretty cool that she has TWO younger brothers. Here are some pictures from the past couple of weeks.

Some smiles :)

check out those chubby legs :) I love it!

My pretty girl :)

Cooper's Blessing

I'm a little behind on the blog, but I wanted to post some pictures of Cooper's blessing. He was blessed on June 24th and it was so nice to have Grandpa and Grandma Wood, and Grandpa and Grandma Taylor there.

4th of July

This year we didn't get to see any of the big firework shows, but we still had fun doing some small fireworks at home with Riley and Ryan. We bought some snaps, flowers, snakes, tanks, and a couple of fireworks that shot parachutes in the air. I think the kids liked the snakes the best.

Riley and Ryan had some cute 4th of July outfits that their Grandma's got for them

They love to give Cooper kisses

Ryan loved to throw the snaps
