Arizona/Grand Canyon

I know I never update this blog but there are a few people requesting pictures etc, that are not on Facebook (my usual mode of posting pictures/updates). We took a trip with Rhett's parents to Sedona, Arizona last week. While we were there, we visited the Grand Canyon, took a trian ride through Sedona (4 hours long), spent LOTS of time at the pool and had a great time just relaxing. Cooper did great on his first plane ride, especially since my laptop stopped playing his DVD 10 minutes into the 2 1/2 hour flight! Luckily Rhett's parents drove and we sent a real DVD player with them that we were able to bring back on the plane. The trip home was MUCH better. Here are a few pictures from our trip. I am going to try and be a little bit better about posting in the future but I SAY THAT EVERY TIME!

As always, ENJOY!

Jade, this one's for you!

Yes, it has been over a year since I have updated this blog! I have had my hands full with being a full time working Mommy. I know that is not a good enough excuse but it is what it is :-). So much has been going on and Cooper is getting so big. We are working on potty training right now which is both rewarding and frustrating at the same time. Cooper's teacher called me today and said he came up to her and said, "Miss Mahala, I pooped in my pants!" She took him to the bathroom and showed him what he did. She said, "Cooper, why would you poop in your big boy underwear?" His response was, "Because I am Cooper Vance and I poop in my pants!" As you can tell, I have my hands full.

This past weekend we took a trip with 14 of our adult friends and 14 kiddos to the pumpkin patch/corn maze in Missouri. It was so much fun but as you can imagine keeping up with 28 people was a task! Here are some pictures from our little adventure. As always ENJOY!

**I will try to get better at updating this blog more in the future :-)

Pumpkin Patch

I took yet another break. Sorry for not updating lately. Today we took Cooper to the pumpkin patch in Pea Ridge. We had a great time even though it was really muddy. M'Amy and Cooper went out and picked a pumpkin for Cooper to bring home. He was so excited. He also got to play on a tractor which was almost impossible to get him off of. He is obsessed with tractors these days! We took a few pictures posted below. Enjoy!

I took a break

Sorry I have not been blogging for a while. So much has been going on. We sold our house and bought a new one. Our closing date is on the 24th of July so we are gearing up for the big move. Things have been really busy. Cooper is doing amazing and is learning so many new things. He now says all of the animal noises, hi, bye, momma, dada, more, ball, Elmo, love you, and others that are mostly hard to make out. He sings the wheels on the bus pretty well and does the motions which is precious. He is a climber and knows how to get up and down off of the couch (scary). He runs instead of walks and laughs all the time. We are so blessed to have him!!!!

Oh, one more fun thing is my sister is pregnant!!!! This was as good of news to me as it was finding out I was pregnant. We can wait to find out if she is having a boy or a girl and to welcome the little angel into our family. Yay!

Here are some recent pictures of Coop. Please enjoy!

My new home...

Cooper has decided that his new favorite place is inside his cabinet in the kitchen. This cabinet used to be organized but now is a mess because he throws everything out into the floor to play. He is so funny and is very proud of himself each time he does this. Enoy the picture.

Spring is in the Air!

We had the best day yesterday. It was beautiful and Cooper really enjoyed being outside and spending time with his best friends. Here are a couple of pictures that we took.
