Fun at the Playground

Yesterday we went down to the playground for the first time this year. The kids have been loving the warmer weather!

Cooper wasn't sure what to think about the swings

He liked watching Ryan and Riley

Ryan has always been a little wimpy when it comes to the swings...I barely even pushed him and he was freaking out! :)

He would much rather spend time going down the slide.

My cute little boys.
 It's hard to believe that Cooper is 10 months old today! He is such a fun little boy. He loves to play with Riley and Ryan, and he loves to get into everything...he's a little trouble maker! He also likes to dance when he hears music. It's so cute to watch!

Our Week

Cooper had fun trying out his new sippy cup.
Here's Riley showing him how to use it.
Poor little buddy :(  He has been so sick  the past couple of days. He had a Dr's appt Wednesday and he had a fever of 102. He's had a hard time, but I think he's starting to feel better.
Cooper had fun playing outside on Wednesday. This was his first time riding in the buggy.
Even though Ryan was sick, he still wanted to dress up as Zelda.
He was showing Cooper some sweet Zelda moves.
Cooper loves to play with his big brother. It's cute watching them play together.
I took Riley shopping with me on Wednesday and I got her a new bunny and this cute yellow shirt. It was fun to have some girl time with my little sweety!

I love my little buddies. They are so much fun!

Is It Halloween Yet?

Riley and Ryan love Halloween and they love to dress up. Yesterday they asked me if it was Halloween yet. They started walking around the house, knocking on all the doors saying "trick-or-treat!". They are so funny! Ryan kept on asking me if we could go to the pumpkin patch again. I'm glad they like Halloween so much. It's my favorite holiday!
Riley and Ryan are always dressing up in their old Halloween costumes. Riley will even put on the little chicken costume she wore when she was 2 years old.

Here's Ryan wearing his skeleton costume a few days ago.

I love my cute little buddy!

This picture was taken a few months ago when Cooper was learning how to crawl. Just a regular day in the Taylor home!

Just now as I was typing this post Ryan told me that he wants to be "Zelda" {Link} for Halloween. Riley told me she wants to be "Peach the Kitty" {not sure where she got that from, lol}. Then Ryan said that Cooper is going to be "Baby Bowser".

Play Time

March has been great so far with lots of sun and 40 degree weather. It's nice to finally see the 3 feet of snow in front of our house start to melt away! I'm excited for Spring to get here and for the weather to be nice enough to take the kids outside. It will be fun to push Cooper around in the little buggy we got for Ryan when he was little.
Well until the weather get's nicer we'll just have to stick to our indoor play time. Here are some pics from the this week.

Ryan is looking so much older! He is growing up so fast!

Cooper was looking at Ryan in this picture. He just loves him so much!

Riley accessorizing with some sweet stickers.

Here's a pic with all the kids together. Riley was being a kitty and Ryan was telling me all about the Zelda monsters.

Cute & chubby :)

Zoo Fun and Sunday Activities

On Saturday we went to the zoo. Since it is still pretty cold outside we took the kids inside to the Desert Dome and then we went down the the Kingdoms of the Night to see the bats and alligators. Ryan loves going to the zoo now. He gets so excited about everything and loves to explore. He was pretending that the "Zelda" worms were jumping out of the sand and he had to shoot them with his bow and arrows.
Riley was a little scared to go down the the Kingdoms of the Night exhibit, but she wanted to see the "Stellaluna" bats. She said she likes the Stellaluna bats {fruit bats} but she doesn't like Vampire bats because they suck your blood.

Touching the desert sand.

Here's Ryan telling us all about the worms jumping out of the sand.

Riley looking at the "mean kitty". It was hissing at her.

Riley wanted to get a picture by the cactus. She loves them. She even checked out a cactus book at the Library :)
Cooper liked looking at all the animals.

Some Sunday Activities:
At church Casey took Ryan through a "secret passage way" {he just cut through the back of the chapel to get to the other side of the church} and so of course when we got home Ryan wanted Casey to help him make his own secret passage way.

Cooper got right in there and played with Riley and Ryan. He loves playing with them!
