Happy Birthday Cooper!

Happy Birthday Cooper! I can't believe it's already been one year!

Me and 35 weeks

With his big brother and sister. They were so excited to see him!

With Aunt Megan, about a month old.

3 months old

He had fun with all of his cousins last summer.

Cooper's first Halloween.
About 10 months old.

Cooper had a great 1st Birthday. We picked up Grandma and Grandpa from the airport and we had so much fun spending the day with them! Cooper had some yummy ice cream at Red Robin and then we opened some present at home. Riley and Ryan had fun helping him open all his gifts. I'll post some pictures of his birthday party soon!

Last Day of School

Riley had her last day of school on Friday. Her class had a water day that day so everyone wore their swim suits to school. She had so much fun! She was kind of sad when it was time to leave. She will miss her friends and her teacher.

Riley and Miss Katie

Riley and her class. She will miss her friends from school, especially Reyna {she's the cute little girl second from the left}.

While Riley was at school I took Ryan to the store to get him a Zelda shield. The little pillow he was using as a shield just wasn't good enough for him anymore, haha.

Here he is with his new shield and sword. He loves his new Zelda gear!

Poor Cooper was sick most of the week but he's finally starting to feel better. It's so nice to see him smiling again!
My cute little happy boys

Riley is learning how to ride her bike without the training wheels. She is doing pretty good! I'll post some pictures and video soon.

Rainy Days

So there really hasn't been too much going on this past week. Everyday has been cold and rainy and so the kids haven't been able to play outside very much. When I picked Riley up from school yesterday she seemed sad and when we got into the car she started crying. I gave her a hug and asked her what was wrong and she said she was sad because it wouldn't stop raining! So sad! It looks like it might be a little nicer today so hopefully the kids will be able to play outside today.

Next week is Riley's last week of school. She really enjoys going to her preschool, but she is excited to start Kindergarten in the fall.

Riley's cute little school.

I haven't taken any pictures this week mainly because we've just been stuck inside all week. But here are some pictures from last month that I wanted to put on the blog.

Last month Riley and Ryan's friend had a "super hero" birthday party and everyone dressed up as their favorite super hero.

Ryan wanted to be "Zelda" (Link) and Riley told me she wanted to be a "pink diamond angel kitty". I'm not sure how she came up with that sweet name, but for her costume I just made her some kitty ears and a tail and she wore her kitty shirt.
They had such a fun time at the birthday party!

I took this picture of Ryan a couple weeks ago. I love it when I can get pictures of him smiling...he has such a cute smile!

I can't leave Cooper out of the post so here's a video of him rockin out to Taylor Swift:

He also loves dancing to this. I'll have to get a video of him dancing to's really cute!

Zoo Kindergarten

This picture of Cooper reminded me of this post  I made about Riley when she was a baby. 

Here's  the kids having fun outside on Saturday. Cooper liked playing on the blanket {much better than sitting directly the grass, haha}. It was such a beautiful day!

We received some great news a little while ago. We found out that Riley was accepted to attend the kindergarten class that is held at the zoo. We are so excited! All of her friends from Village Green were also accepted so that is awesome! I wanted to show Riley where her new school would be and so I took her to the zoo last week.
Here is where Riley will be going to school in the fall. She is pretty excited about it...she keeps on asking me if it's time to go to the zoo kindergarten yet. I can't believe she will be in kindergarten! She will be at school for the full day {from 8:40-3:00}. I think she will love it, but it will be hard for me to have her gone all day!

Here are some more pics from that day:

Ryan is wearing his "Zelda" hat. He seriously wears that thing everyday, even if it is 80 degrees outside.
