In Need of Some COLOR!

It has been so gray and gloomy outside lately....it gets a little depressing after awhile! What better place  to see some bright colors and experience a tropical climate than the jungle? I love that we live so close to the zoo. It really is one of the best parts about living in Omaha. We always have such a fun time!




Playing in the waterfall.





The sloth was actually awake that day!



Ryan wanted to touch this duck...he got pretty close!
He had such a fun time. He loved exploring the jungle!

Learning How to Crawl


Cooper has been trying so hard to crawl. He's getting so close! He wants to move around and play with Riley and Ryan.


He get's into this position, but he doesn't know how to use his arms yet so he just kinda rocks back and forth.



I love all his facial expressions!

Crawling is SO hard!


Good thing he has a nice brother and sister to help him out and give him encouragement!

Library Visit


Baright Public Library

We usually go to the library about once a month. The kids love looking at the books and using the computers. Every month they pick out a new book to read.

This is part of the children's area. This photo only shows a tiny section of the room...this library has a really large children's area. The kids really like it!




Both Riley and Ryan like to use the computers.


Cooper had fun, too :)

I hope we can always make an effort to take the kids to the library about once a month. It's been a really enjoyable activity for our family!

Playing in the Snow

We have had so much snow here in Omaha! This is the most snow we've seen the whole time we've lived here. The kids love it! Here are some pictures from the past few days:









I hope that everyone had a fun New Years! On New Years Eve we had fun playing games with the kids before they went to bed. Riley was actually pretty good at Jenga!

Here's a video I made for the Grandparents with pictures from 2009:
