Birthday Weekend

My birthday was this weekend and we kicked it off with Cherry Berry after school on Friday.
Saturday morning, we got up and drove to the Wild Wilderness Drive through Safari in Gentry, Arkansas.
Cooper loved every minute of it.
Chloe finally got to see a zebra!
The camels were funny!
An old lady and her three crazy kids.

Kiddie Park

We drove up to the Kiddie Park in Bartlesville on Friday night.

We were first in line for the roller coaster because the line got so long last time we were there and we never got to ride it.

Cooper watched their every move.

Then it was on to the pirate ship and rockets.

Next up was the trucks.
My brother actually painted this huge mural for the Kiddie Park this past year.
So glad we finally got to see it in person!

After the trucks were the little cars. Finally something Cooper could ride.

The boats.

Then it was time to ride their favorite ride, the airplanes.
They had trouble getting their airplane in the air the first ride but quickly figured it out the second time.

Next to the airplanes were the swings and bumper cars.
We rode a few more rides before riding the train and then the carousel.
It was about 9:00 by this time and Cooper was so sleepy, but he hung in there and didn't want to miss a thing. He's such a good baby and barely ever gets fussy if he's tired.
We rode 2 more rides before we headed to the car to get our jammies on and head home.
Until Next year...

First Official Day of School 2015

Since the kids go to daycare all year long right now, they don't really have a real "first day" but I decided to document the start of the school year since this will be their last year before Pre-K. And because I have these really cute "First/Last Day" signs.

These silly kids can't ever just give me a simple smile. One always does something to crack the other one up.

And of course we had to include Cooper. He just recently moved into a bigger kid class at school and he's changed so much in just the past week!

I can't believe summer is almost over but we're looking forward to so many things. Dance and soccer are both starting in 2 weeks and the kids are already talking about what they want to be for Halloween!

The weekend

We played outside after school on Friday and the kids stayed up a little later than planned. Connor starts to get a little delirious when he's tired and when we were getting ready for showers he kept laughing and saying "My face is making me laugh!"

Cooper and his crazy bedhead on Saturday morning...

We went to a fun birthday party for our friend Carsen on Saturday. The twins swam for 5 hours straight and Cooper enjoyed the treats!

We headed for a short trip to the lake on Sunday.
