Wyatt is 8!

Aiden lost his first tooth this week. It didn't come out on its own because it was ready, he bumped 3 of his bottom teeth on his bunk bed and it knocked them loose. Luckily only one came out. He was so excited for the tooth fairy to come.

Wyatt turned 8 on Sept. 1. Here he is opening presents after his birthday party. He got his very own MP3 player. I don't know why some of my pictures are sideways, I turned them before blogger uploaded them.

This year Wyatt wanted to have his party at Skateland so he invited a couple of friends over to our house for pizza and then we went to Skateland and had cake and opened presents. They all had a lot of fun trying to skate since most of them had never done it before.

Don't they look so happy! They were exhausted by the end!

Grandma and Papa came over and brought him his present and he was so excited to get The Diary of a Wimpy Kid Journal Book and of course the money.

Wyatt and Graham skating around with their glow sticks. I can't believe I have an 8 year old! He is looking forward to going to Scouts and being Baptized in October.

Brinley Michelle

Ryan got me a sewing machine for my birthday and so I have been trying it out. I made some super simple burp cloths and I think they turned out so cute!

We finally decided on a name for this baby! Her name is going to be Brinley Michelle Cooper. Of course I had to make her some cute letters for her wall. Pretty much her room is all decorated and ready to go.

First Day of School

Wyatt and Aiden started school on Monday. They were so excited to go. The first day we almost missed the bus and they had to run to get on so I didn't get any pictures. These pictures are from this morning. I cannot believe I have a 3rd grader and a kindergartner!

Wyatt has been such a good big brother and has helped Aiden get to where he needs to go.

They look so old!!

Last week we took a day trip down to Tucson and went to the Reid Zoo. The boys loved how close all of the animals were.

Sticking their tongues out like the giraffe!

This zoo was a lot smaller than the Phoenix Zoo but the animals were way more active and you got to be closer up.

Wyatt loved the polar bear. It was so cool to watch him swim laps back and forth. He was so huge. I'm glad that we got to do one last little trip before school started.

Camping and a surprise

We went camping last week up at Bear Canyon Lake and on the way home we stopped at this place called Catch-A-Trout. The boys each got to fish for a trout and then the place cleaned them for us to bring home to cook. They thought it was pretty cool except that they don't want to eat them.

Wyatt and Ryan fishing at the lake.

It was nice to get out of the heat for a little while. We camped right by the lake so we got to go fishing a couple of times. We didn't have any luck catching anything though.

The boys catching crawdads and Wyatt trying to have Ryan catch a fish in a bucket. He wanted a fish to bring home to keep as a pet.

Grant and Aiden riding in the back of Grandpa Randy's truck down the road to the lake.

We borrowed my sister's BB gun and all the kids got to shoot at soda cans.

Pretty soon there is going to be a lot of pink around our house! We found out that we are expecting a girl. The boys are so excited to have a little sister to play with. Of course I had to go right out and buy something pink for her.

Exciting News!

We are excited to announce that we are pregnant with baby #3! I am due around December 2nd. To tell Ryan's family, Aiden wore this "I'm the big brother" shirt that Wyatt got when Aiden was born. Wyatt says he wants a little sister but Aiden wants a little brother. I guess we'll see!

A few months ago we made this planter (with the help of our brother in law Jason) and we finally have plants growing. This is our zucchini and it is getting huge!

The rest of the garden is slowly getting bigger too.

Aiden turned 5 on April 13th. He had his birthday party at Golfland.

Blowing out the candles on his cake.

All the boys waiting for the pizza.

Everybody got to goofy golf. It was pretty funny watching a bunch of 3, 4, and 5 year olds try to golf but they all had a good time.

Aiden concentrating on his swing.

Opening presents at Grandma and Grandpa Tegeler's house.

Grant, our nephew, had his birthday the day after Aiden so they celebrated them together. Here they are ready to blow out the candles.

Wyatt and Aiden started baseball and are both loving it!

They look so adorable in their uniforms.

They both got lucky and ended up with the Diamondbacks even though they are on different teams.

Wyatt has gotten a few double plays this season as well as a grand slam.

We only have a few more weeks of baseball left and are looking forward to school getting out and for summer to begin.

Disneyland Fun and More

Since blogger uploaded my pictures in random order I'll have to start from the most recent. Ryan's birthday was on Monday and since the boys didn't have school he took the day off. We decided to have a picnic and hike at Usery Park. It was a lot of fun and the weather was perfect. Wyatt had a hard time getting up to the top and we couldn't slow Aiden down.

Ryan and I up at the top of the mountain. Don't look too closely at my red face!

When we got to the top of the mountain there were squirrels everywhere. They kept coming really close to us. The boys were loving it.

When we went on our trip to Disneyland we went down to Carlsbad and went to the beach. It was rainy and cold but that didn't stop the boys from playing out there.

We saw all of these sea lions laying out on the beach. The boys thought that was cool.
We drove down the Pacific Beach Highway on our way home and since it was raining too hard to be outside we stopped in La Jolla and went to an aquarium.
They had some pretty crazy fish there.

When we were still in Carlsbad on the beach the boys made sand castles and looked for shells. They both got pretty wet. Aiden didn't mean to get so wet but a wave got him all the way up to his chest. Not long after that we had to go in and change before they froze!
Wyatt and Aiden thought the Jedi Training at Disneyland was the coolest thing ever. You have to be called out of the audience and then you get to go up and wear the robes and have a lightsaber. They teach you how to fight with the lightsaber and then you get to fight Darth Vader.

Here's Aiden's dream coming true!!

Wyatt got to fight a different bad guy but I don't know enough to know his name.

The boys and goofy. Can you tell Aiden is so excited to be in the picture?

The boys and their 3-D glasses from one of the shows.

We had to get our picture with Woody. Aiden would not get in any of the pictures with the characters. I guess he's too cool for that.

We saw a Lego store at Downtown Disney and they were in love!

Wyatt and Ryan on the teacups.

Can't forget Mickey Mouse!

This was the first day into the park.

The classic Disneyland picture.

As soon as we got into the park Wyatt got picked out of a group to dance with the band and the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. He was so embarrassed! It was the best trip ever! The park was so slow and we got to go on every single ride a ton of times. The boys were in pure Heaven!
