Yeah! It's finally here. Brad and I are heading off to Kauai tomorrow with our friends, the Simmons. I'm so ready for a break, and while I'm nervous to leave Coop, I'm excited. Sometimes moms just need a break :).I know he will have a great time with both grandmas and aunt Diane. (THANKS GUYS!!) So I will be missing in the blog world. Not that I've been that great about posting lately anyway. Oh and also, I am NOT a good packer. I always have two bags. Well, we just found out that Delta is starting to charge for the second bag. Yup twenty five bucks starting May 5 or 6 (can't remember). I'm in trouble. I guess I'll have to start learning to be a good packer from now on. Brad will be happy. Myself...not so much. You just always have to have that extra pair of shoes!

Showers and Coop's Latest

The last couple of weeks were so fun for us. We got a visit from my cute little sister Michelle. Her little boy is coming in June, so she had some baby showers to go to while she was out here. My mom and I made her the cutest quilt. I almost wanted to keep it for myself. We had so much fun. I just wished she lived closer so we could hang out like that all the time.

Also, Coop has started this climbing phase. I hope it's a phase because it makes me so nervous. While we were in Lewiston at my parents, he climbed onto their kitchen chairs and onto the table...Well, I thought we were safe at our house because we have the counter height table and chairs. NOPE. He figured those out also. He climbs up the chairs and onto the table or counter. Needless to say I am just waiting for him to fall off and break an arm or something. He does run into a problem every now and then though. If the chairs are underneath the table or counter he can't get up....Brad got these pics on Sunday. He was a little stuck :)

Amazing Video

My mom sent me this email today with a video attached. The email said this video is a slideshow of photos that appeared at the Mesa Temple Visitors Center before Easter. It is such an amazing video! You should all watch it! Just click the attachment and it will take you to the video.


I hope this video helps you feel closer to the Savior just like it helped me!

Michelle's Home

My cute sister Michelle flew home yesterday for a two week visit. I'm so excited! She is seven months pregnant and looks so cute. At the airport her flight was a little late and Coop was antsy. My mom found a wheelchair and decided to take him for rides. Thanks mom!

The Living Planet Aquarium

So, yesterday we headed to the Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy with a bunch of friends. Nikki, Georgana, Brit, Tara and I brought all the kids for an afternoon of fun! I hadn't been there before, but it was a really neat place. I guess it's a preview for what they are planning on building. We headed to Training Table afterwards and ate some great cheese fries! We were a little nervous because we had seven kids with us and guess what...they are ALL BOYS. Les, we needed you and Clara! They actually did pretty well once we built a corral with chairs in the corner so they couldn't get out.

Coop bustin some serious moves!

Guess what! I totally CHOPPED my hair off. Well, I didn't, but Tiffany did (THANKS TIFF). It is seriously so short. Probably the shortest since maybe eighth grade...sad I know. I've never been one to care too much about my hair. I love the cut, and I think I'm going to really like it. It is a huge change for me. I'll post pics later.
