We tried to pull out Koopers old baseball tee this year and after a few hits it fell apart. So now Kooper has the Derek Jeter 360 baseball tee. Mike also wanted to get him a metal baseball bat, I didn't think that was safe since other kids are always around while he hits. Too bad Kooper still has a few years until he can play on a team, I can tell Mike was ready, he wanted to buy a new bat a new glove, an anything else the kid would need in a few years to play tee ball. So today we pulled out the tee since it was a fairly nice Saturday. I love that my kid is obsessed with Baseball.

We got a flat tire on the rental, on our way to see the gators.

Look close and you can see a huge gator

Mike thought he was Tarzan

We were so close to this one that was just off the path. They didn't have any fences so it was freaky to be so close.

The rules said to stay on the path but the guys were all setting a bad example for my easily swayed son to follow.

Jenna giving Caleb a ride, I'm impressed he is one heavy baby. I guess Jenna has some serious muscle from toting him around.

Check out that belly. I am huge!

Kooper fell asleep in his underwear on Grandma while she was tickling his back

He was being brave to pet the horse, but he would not feed it.

I was trying to feed the goats but the horse was greedy

Nikki, Jonny, and his little tag along this weekend.

My red neck son

We ate so good in Houston! After we ate they had a little farm so we went out and feed the animals.
We went to go and visit Jenna, Adam, and Caleb this weekend along with all of Mikes family. It rained the first two days so we shopped. We went to the best mall ever The Galleria, it seriously has every store it is huge. The next day we went to this fun street that had little boutiques and consignment shops. On Monday it was sunny and hot so we went to an alligator park. Those pictures are on my other camera so I will have to post them later. Mike and I came back Monday night and Kooper stayed a few extra days with Grandpa and Grandma. We had so much fun thanks Jenna, Adam, and Caleb for letting us come hangout.

Potty Trained...

Kooper is finally potty trained and has been for a little over a week. I have been waiting just to make sure. He will finally tell me when he has to go and goes on his own as needed. I am so happy! He has the occasional accident but for the most part he finally gets it. It was taking so long to potty train him I thought it was never going to happen, so I am glad I have a few months to be diaper free before the baby comes.

DeRoest Family pictures...

They had no idea I was taking a picture

Kooper and Caleb

We took photos while everyone was together just after New Years. It's a little sad I am just now posting them. Better late than never!

The goggles were a little big and pulled Koopers lip up and he looked like a chipmunk

We spent the weekend in St. George with our friends, Jesse and Rindy. Koopers best friend is Addie their daughter, I'm not sure if she feels the same way about being best friends. Kooper talks about Addie and wants to play with her everyday. It was a beautiful weekend in St. George. Mike and Jesse went golfing while Rindy and I went to the gym. We get along well because we are both obsessed with the gym. Rindy showed me this great workout and I can barely move today, I LOVE IT! We went swimming Saturday afternoon at an indoor pool that was heated, it was nice so I didn't feel so bad I could only put my legs in the hot tub. Kooper didn't even skip a beat from last summer, he was a fearless fish.
