Wild Cats of the World Park

On Saturday, we went out to Cave Junction to visit the Wild Cats of the World Park. It was really neat! We enjoyed seeing all the beautiful cats up close and hearing more about them. So glad we finally made it out there!

More Pictures of the Cats

Dressing Up

Dress up continues to be a daily activity in our house! Brady has started getting into it more and it is so cute! One of their favorites is to dress up like firemen. They run around the house putting out fires. Very cute!! They also like wearing their Mickey/Minnie ears everywhere! Even to the store!!

Water Fun

We have been loving the warmer weather lately and have been outside as much as possible! The kids have been dying to get out the little pool, so we did last week. They've been in it every day! I think we'll be doing that a lot this summer!!

Moon Sand

Rayna has been having so much fun playing with her moon sand she got for her birthday! She loves that she can shape things and especially likes that the molds are all princess and castle things!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is the one day of the year I know I will get some family pictures taken. So here we are this year. We even got a nice picture of just Bryan and me. The kids have gotten too big and are growing up so fast! They got me some flowers to plant in my new planter out front and not only helped me plant them, but they help me water them everyday. My birthday fell on Mother's Day this year, so it was an extra special day. We had a wonderful family day, going to brunch, going on a bike ride, and having movie night. I love my family!


Rayna got some great gardening stuff from Grandmoo for her birthday and has been anxious to use it. The weather has finally started looking up so over the weekend we worked on clearing out and planting the garden. Rayna was so excited! She had so much fun digging around in the dirt and found many worm friends to play with. It was a lot of fun!


My friend Michelle had to go back to work a couple of weeks ago so I am now babysitting her little guy, Dawson, during the week. The kids and I are loving it! I just love having a baby around again, and he's such a good baby! Rayna and Brady are both great helpers and love playing with him and making him smile and laugh! It is really cute to see how they interact with him. And Dawson thinks they are hilarious! Brady does want to do everything Dawson does, including using the baby swing and bouncy seat. I thought he would be more jealous, but it really hasn't been too bad. It has been such a joy!
