Tuesday Morning:

Ryan and Cooper watched Daddy as he left for work.

Ryan had fun showing Cooper how to play with his car garage toy.

It's fun to see Cooper and Ryan starting to play together more. They are so cute to watch! I think Ryan likes having a little buddy to play with. They will have even more fun as Cooper gets older. I hope that they will always be good buddies growing up!

Cooper is such a fun little boy. He loves to play with Riley and Ryan and he loves to be outside. One of his favorite things to do is ride in his buggy.

I love this picture...he's so cute even when he's mad.

So, this is what happens when Riley forgets to put her markers away:
He is such a little trouble maker, haha!

I love my happy little boy! Just looking at him makes me giggle because I think he's just so adorable. I can't believe he will be a year old next month! Crazy! I'm glad that Grandma and Grandpa will be here to celebrate his first birthday with us. It will be so much fun!

My Website

 Some of you may know that I have a blog design website called Lily Puff Designs. I started it because I couldn't find any Minima Stretch blog backgrounds to use on my family blog, so I just started making my own. I first began working on the website about four months ago, but until now I've been too chicken to put myself out there and make a post about it on my blog!
If you could check out Lily Puff Designs that would be awesome. I would love to hear what you think....comments, suggestions, questions, any kind of feedback would be great!

Thanks everyone!

Riley and Ryan had fun playing with their remote control cars last night. The only problem was that the cars were on the same frequency and so one controller would make both cars move. They ended up having to take turns so the cars woudn't interfere with each other.

Ryan crashed his truck in the ditch

Here's Riley showing me her car

Cooper and Ryan had fun watching her race her car.

Riley and Ryan both had fun racing their cars off the steps

Riley was getting mad because Ryan was making her car move with his controller. I think he was doing it on purpose...he thought it was pretty funny!

Cooper is so funny. He will not look at me when I'm trying to take pictures of him! So this is what most of the pictures look like.

Here's some more pictures of Cooper playing in his buggy. He loves that thing! He had a fun time watching Riley and Ryan play with their cars!

I was so happy to see that the trees in front of our house have blossomed! I love Spring!

The kids have been loving the warmer weather. They have spent much of their time outside the past few days.
These are flowers from the little tree in front of our house.

Riley and Ryan had fun playing outside this morning. Riley was excited to wear her new dress that I found at a consignment sale {only $2, woohoo!}.

Cooper will be glad when he can walk so he can go outside and play with is brother and sister!

I saw these dandelions and I thought they were so cute for some reason, haha. They're buddies. :)

The Faster You Run...

This picture was taken a couple hours after Riley had a pretty good wipeout. If you've seen her run you'd know that she loves to run as fast as she can. Well, this means that when she falls, she falls pretty hard.
 She scraped up her knees, elbows, hands, nose, and forehead, and she had a bloody nose. I was actually really surprised at how much she was bleeding...she left a puddle of blood on the sidewalk where she fell. I never thought I'd have wash off a puddle of my child's blood from the sidewalk with a hose!
She was pretty shaken up, but she still wanted to play outside a little while after she fell.

Here's another picture of her nose. She's going to have a big scab on her nose for a while!

On Monday she had fun telling her teacher and friends at school about her wipeout.

A couple more pics from last week:
all the kids together

Riley and Grandma

Cooper sure loves his Grandpa!

Grandma and Grandpa

On Thursday I got a huge surprise when I walked upstairs and saw my dad's truck parked out in front of our house. I can't believe no one told me my parents were coming to visit us! I was so excited to see them. The kids were pretty excited too!

Here are the kids with Grandma and Grandpa just a few minutes after they got to our house.

Riley, Ryan, and Cooper each got a  Easter basket from Grandma and Grandpa. Cooper was so cute to watch. He had a fun time going through his basket. He really liked the plastic eggs.

Mom's birthday was on Saturday and so we had a little party for her. I was so glad we were able to spend her birthday with her.

Here's the birthday girl with her grandbabies.

After Grandma's birthday party we went down to the playground for the Village Green Easter egg hunt.

Here's Ryan getting some eggs.

Cooper got some eggs, too!

Here's the kids with the eggs they found. They had a fun time!

I was so glad we got to spend Easter with my parents. I enjoyed watching General Conference with them and  I had fun shopping with my dad and playing Boggle with my mom. Actually, I pretty much got my butt kicked in Boggle...I can never beat my mom, haha!
I have lots more pictures, so I'll put some more up soon!
I hope everyone had a great Easter!
