Zions Canyon...



Everyone checking out the jump.

Mike and John were the only ones brave enough to jump.

This is the little pool we swam in after Canyoneering last year, we did a hike and then decided to cool off.

Mikes parents, John and Annette and his Sister Nikki and her boyfriend Johnny all came to stay with us for Memorial weekend. We spent one day Hiking and swimming at Zions Canyon. We were exhausted and had a great time exploring the canyon. After I have the baby Mike and I want to come back and do the popular Angels Landing and Narrows hikes, we will have to get a babysitter since they are a more difficult hikes. Thanks for the Fun weekend!

Vegas Vacation...


Kooper had to wear his new Goggles while swimming. He looked like such a dork. An incredible cute dork of course.

We took Kooper to Vegas this weekend. It is a 2 and half hour drive from Cedar City. We needed a little family vacation before the baby arrives. We stayed at the South Point Hotel off the strip, it was really nice and kid friendly. It had a bowling alley and a big movie theater. We went swimming in the morning and went to see lions and Dolphins and went on rides at Circus Circus. We walked around a few different fun hotels. Kooper loved Vegas, he is so sad we are home and just keeps telling me he wants to go back to Vegas. I think his favorite part was Circus Circus. He had a hard time walking past all the slot machines and gambling he wanted to play so bad. It was not very relaxing but it was so much fun.

Secret Garden...


Treasure Island Pirate ship, we didn't stay for a show, Kooper just liked seeing a real pirate ship



All the lions were sleeping while we were there.
Mike went golfing On Friday with a friend so Kooper and I went to Sigfried and Roys Secret Garden at the Mirage. It is a lion and dolphin habitat. They had tons of different lions and tigers and leopards. It was so hot they were all sleeping. The dolphins were a lot more fun to watch they put on little shows while we were there. After the Secret Garden we went to check out the Pirate ship at Treasure Island. We had lunch at the Fashion show mall and luckily Kooper fell asleep in the stroller and I got to shop until Mike was done Golfing. We walked around the Venetian Hotel Kooper liked watching the Gondolas in the little canal that ran through the shops.

Circus Circus...


Frog hopper was the kids version of the big shot ride.


Kooper loved the air planes he went like 4 times in a row.


We took Kooper to Adventure Dome inside the Circus Circus hotel. It had tons of rides and video games. He was in heaven.

33 weeks...

Koopers Baby

Mikes Baby

Baby Max at 33 weeks.

I am still teaching Yoga and Pilates. I only have two more Yoga Classes after tonight and I will teach Pilates until the baby comes. I can't wait to be done for a while. I can run 4 miles on the elliptical. I try to say I can run 4 miles and Mike says it doesn't count because it's on the elliptical, which is easier than the treadmill. I had a chiropractor apt. yesterday and was adjusted and had a rib out. I feel so much better today!

Mike and I went golfing on Saturday. It was Koopers first time going on the golf course and not just the practice green. He loved the golf cart and was way better than I thought he was going to be. We let him hit a few balls when we didn't have people behind us. I took my camera but when I pulled it out the battery was dead.

I was organizing the baby nursery and pulled out the baby car seat. Kooper tried to get in it and I said he wouldn't fit it was for the baby. Kooper said "Yeah, mom it's for the baby. What baby? the one in your belly? Yeah and it gets real small and comes out your mouth." My mouth is rather large so I guess I can see how he came up with that one. My boy is so smart.

Koopers baby...


Koopers' Mothers Day shirt.

Kooper showing me his baby. The bottom picture was posted for Mike he liked this one the best, Probably because this one resembles Mike the most!

Just in case you didn't know Kooper has a baby in his belly. Kooper was crying this morning and saying his baby hurt while rubbing his belly. He said "kiss the baby mom." (that is how we make things feel better) I kissed it and asked if he needed to go potty, and if that would make it better. I told him we could drop the baby off at the pool. He thought that was a great idea. Once the baby was at the pool he was all better.

Ready to ride...

Kooper was playing down stairs when I noticed he was being really quiet, this usually means he is doing something he should not. Mike left his motorcycle gear out and Kooper was all ready for a ride. "Take a picture mom" was all he said when I came down stairs.

Umbrella... ella.... ella...


Kooper wants to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner outside on the patio under the umbrella. I catch him outside on the table putting up the umbrella because he is "hot". Of course he gets in trouble because the table is glass and he could fall. I love the nice weather and don't mind eating outside. I love summer and playing outside at the park getting absolutely nothing done all day.

Kooper has been getting in trouble so much lately, now he just asks " Am I in trouble again mom." He has wet his pants twice last week and pooped them at church on sunday. He has done so good the last couple months, what the heck is going on? I even caught him peeing outside at the park the other day. I don't know if it's the weather and having a change in routine or if it's me being REALLY pregnant. He has major attitude, whines, and cries constantly lately. Oh please let him be better by the time the baby comes. Mike asked where nice sweet happy Kooper went, I don't know but I would like him to come back.

Puttin' Around...


My favorite picture of Kooper pouting.





Mike likes to take Kooper to the practice green while I am working in the evening. This is the first time I got to go with them. I know I already have a ton of golf pictures from last year but I just really wanted to use my camera.
