Aunt Megan

My kids loved playing with Megan and Preston while we were in Utah. They are so great with the kids! Riley and Ryan are always asking me when they can play with Aunt Megan again!

Megan made up a game called Blast Off :) They loved it!


Hehehe :) Riley loved it so much she even taught it to her new friend during Primary, lol.

We love you Aunt Megan! :)

A Few More Pics

Here are a few more pics from Grandma Taylor's camera.

Here's a picture of the kids catching the chipmunk. They were all so excited!

Riley never got bored...she was always building something or playing games with her cousins.

Ryan felt a lot better after his long nap.

This was right before we left to drive to Utah. Riley and Ryan were sad to say goodbye to their cousins! They had a such a fun time playing with them!

While we were visiting Grandma and Grandpa Taylor we got to go camping! Riley had so much fun. She loved it! I think one of the things she will remember most about camping is how she and her cousins set a trap to try and catch a chipmunk. They had the trap out all day and at the end of the day they finally caught a chipmunk! Poor thing...but don't worry they let him go and he wasn't hurt (besides being emotionally scarred for life, haha).

Here is our awesome tent that we slept in. It was actually pretty comfy!

Ryan wasn't feeling the best, but he still had a fun time!

Cooper liked playing around in the tent.

After we got settled in, Casey took  the kids and showed them how to shoot the slingshot.

They had a lot of fun shooting rocks into the river!

Casey helped Riley and Ryan cook their hot dogs for dinner.

 I think the kids would love to go camping again! It will take me a little more convincing, haha :) I'm glad the kids had a fun time!

This Morning

This morning I woke up with possibly the worst headache I have ever had, and this is what my kids decided to do just after waking up:

Today might be a long day, haha!

Grandma Taylor's House

We had so much fun on our trip to Colorado and Utah. For the first part of our trip we went to Colorado to visit Grandma and Grandpa Taylor. The kids had a great time playing at Grandma's house! Casey's brother Chris was also visiting and so Riley, Ryan, and Cooper had lots of cousins to play with.

This was the best picture I could get with all the kids together. Ryan wasn't too happy about getting his picture taken that day!

Here's Cooper "petting" the kitten. The kids loved playing with the kittens.

Here he is walking around looking for the kitten...

He found her! She learned to keep her distance from Cooper, haha! I love how Cooper points at everything's one of my favorite things :)

My cute little Ryan buddy...he wasn't feeling well for most of the time we were at Grandma's house but he still had a good time playing with Chaz and his other cousins.

Here's Cooper pointing at the pond

Riley loved the trampoline but Ryan wouldn't go on it unless Casey was holding him. The first time he tried to jump on it he got bounced and landed right on his face and so he was scared to go on it after that.

Here's Riley doing some flips.

One of the days the kids got to play in the swimming pool.

Cooper had fun splashing in the water and getting wet!

Riley would swim all day if we let her!  She loved Grandma's house...I don't think she ever got bored. There was always someone to play with, and she also loved playing with the kittens!

I have lots more pictures to post from our trip! I'll try to post some camping pics soon!
