Riley loves catching bugs. The fireflies have started to come out and so Riley had fun catching some the other night.

Here she is with a couple of the fireflies she caught. She's brave...I didn't want to touch them!

I gave both Ryan and Cooper a haircut a few days ago. They look so cute with their short hair. Ryan has been talking a lot about going to school. He is excited to start preschool in the fall!

Cooper loves to walk and he's getting pretty good at it. He also loves to climb the stairs, and now he likes opening the fridge! This little boy keeps me busy!

We are excited to visit Colorado and Utah soon. The kids are really excited to see both Grandma & Grandpa Taylor and also Grandma & Grandpa Wood. We get to go camping with Grandma & Grandpa Taylor. Riley and Ryan have been pretty excited about that. The last time we went camping was when Riley was a baby! I Can't wait to see everyone!

Cooper just figured out how to open the fridge....

Nice one, Coops! :)

Nothing that some paper towels and quick bath can't fix, right? :)
 Hmm, so what do I do now? I really don't want to buy a child-proof lock for the fridge!

Almost Walking

Cooper is such a fun little boy. He loves to play with Riley and Ryan. He is getting pretty close to walking. He can take quite a few steps, but he still prefers crawling. He will be happy when he gets better at walking so he can play with his brother and sister more!
Oh, and yesterday he figured out how the climb up the stairs, and he can actually go pretty fast. He gets mad when we put up the gates!

We sure miss Grandma and Grandpa! Here are some pictures from when we went to the zoo with Grandma:

We are glad we get the see Grandma and Grandpa again next week, even if it's only for a day. Then in July we get to see Grandma and Grandpa Wood AND Grandma and Grandpa Taylor! It will be so much fun! The kids are already excited to go camping with Grandma Taylor. They will love it!

Go Riley, Go!

Riley has been learning to ride her bike without the training wheels. She has been doing really well, but she still needs help starting out...once she gets going she does great!
We have a helmet for her but it didn't fit on her head...that's why she's not wearing one in the pictures.

She was really excited to take the training wheels off her bike!

Ryan and Cooper had fun watching her go!
Sad face :(    I can't even remember why he was mad...I just thought this picture was so cute!

Riley's Camera

Riley got a cute little camera for her birthday last year and it's fun to see what kind of pictures I'll find when I upload them to the computer.

Riley's friend took some pictures of her. They are so funny!

Riley took a picture of our lesson from our home teachers.

Here are a couple of pictures from Winter Quarters. She had fun going there with Grandma and Grandpa.

Cooper's Birthday Party

We had so much fun on Cooper's Birthday last week. My parent's flew in from Utah that day and so we were able to celebrate Cooper's birthday all together! We went to Red Robin and Cooper got to eat some yummy ice cream! He really liked it!

When we got home from Red Robin Riley and Ryan helped Cooper open all his presents.

All three of them loved the ball popper.

After Cooper opened his present we sang Happy Birthday to him and had cake and ice cream.

His cake was so yummy :)

Cooper was smiling so big when we sang Happy Birthday to him. It was really cute! When we finished singing Ryan blew out the candle for him.

Happy Birthday Cooper! We love you!
