Becca's Special Day!!!!

Our 4 year old Princess

Becca was lucky this year her birthday happened to fall on the same day as the Family Reunion. On our way to our Family Reunion we were able to stay at Aunt Lottie's. Aunt Lottie made Becca a special birthday pancake shaped as a cow! She was able to play in the morning with Boston and Brigham. They had fun on the blow up mattress.

When we got to Bosie we all had a blast swimming. Her cousins were nice enough to take Becca under their wing and play and swim with her.

Becca was so loved that she got two birthday cakes. Jessica made her very first cake, and Aunt Kim made her other one.

Jessica lighting her first cake ever and it sure was delicious!!

We had an ultra sound appointment this morning. Everything looked good and healthy on the baby. Becca wanted a new sister and Aymree wanted a brother. We found out today that Becca gets her wish. We are adding a new little girl to our family we are very excited! Jared is getting very outnumbered but I told him next time we get a pet it can be a boy. We are very excited and counting the days until Piper Elizabeth is born.

Fun at the Park

Today we had a lot of fun. My cousin Marie suggested we go to a park. So we went and took the kids. The park was close to where we are living, and I was very suprised that we had not been there before now. The drive in the park was beautiful very green with big beautiful trees.

Not only was there toys for the kids to play on their was a creek that ran through the park. The water was about 3 inches deep and perfect for little kids.

There was trails that ran around the park. So lots of exploring.

My cousin Karma who I grew up with is in town. She is so good with the kids and the kids love her a lot. She made it fun by taking them on the trails and playing with them. Thanks Karma!!

Swim Swim Swim

This summer has been full of fun swimming times. Becca and Aymree love to go swim, and love to swim with their cousins Wade, Josh, and Jack.

Becca is learning to jump into the pool without her life jacket on. Her cousins Wade and Josh are teaching her to be a good swimmer.

A little girl at the pool took it upon herself to mother Becca and make sure that she got to the side safe.

Oregon Fun

We were able to go to the Cooper family reunion over the 4th weekend. It was great to see family that I haven't been able to see in a very long time. The girls played really hard with their cousins and did not want to come back. Every night the girls would be covered in dirt from playing so hard outside.

The girls loved the fireworks and had fun with their sparklers.

Some of us got t0 go to the Oregon Beach. It was so cold that we didn't get to enjoy very much time at the Beach. However, we did see a grey whale and her calf feeding. It was neat.

My grandma was so sweet that she bought a birthday cake for me while we were up there and so I got to celebrate with the whole family!!!! Then my sister came to stay with me on my birthday with her little darling daughter Audrey. It was very nice of her and made my birthday very special. I couldn't of asked for a better birthday!!
