Wheeler Farm

Today we went to Wheeler Farm with my mom, Megan , and Becca. It was super hot but we still had a lot of fun. We found some picnic tables in the shade and ate some lunch. The kids had such a great time playing in the stream. They loved getting wet I'm putting their feet in the water. My mom brought some goldfish for them and they kept sneaking them off to float down the stream . It was actually really cute. I'm glad we were able to go even though it was hot!

This is how things looked at our house at 4:38 today. The kids had finished their homework and were relaxing, and I was getting dinner ready. I like quiet moments like this! :)

On Thursday I had a scar revision surgery to fix some scars that had healed weird. The first few days of recovery were more painful than I thought, but I'm starting to feel a lot better. Today I went in to the Dr's office to get my stitches out. I brought Cooper and Kendall since this would only be a 10 minute appt. Kendall was so scared to go into the room! She kept on saying "I scared. I scared!". It was so sad! The nurse got her and Cooper a sucker and she was fine after that, haha! It feels good to have my stitches out and hopefully everything will heal right so I won't have to go in anymore...although I really don't think I would go back.

I'm going to do the "Read With Me" challenge. Basically we will be reading the Book of Mormon before General Conference in October...about 5.5 pages a day. I've never done this challenge before, and so I'm excited to be participating this year! If you'd like to join me visit

3 Days Old ♥

Suki and the babies are doing great! She has been taking such great care of them...she is a great mama! If she hears the kitties crying, she will run right to them to make sure they are ok. The kids love them so much. They are just so cute!

Kitty Nursery

Suki is about to have her kittens any day now! We are so excited! On Thursday I cleaned out the kids toy room and turned it into a kitty nursery. I made Suki a bed out of a cardboard box and put some towels and blankets inside. She has been sleeping in it, and so I hope she will have the kittens in there. I also gave Suki a bath...she did a really good job! She was so dirty from being outside, but now she smells good and has soft, silky fur again. 

The kids are so excited about the kittens. I love seeing their eyes light up when we talk about them! It's been a great learning experience for them, too. They understand that it's a lot of work taking care of animals, but they are excited to help out. We are having a little contest to see who can guess how many kittens Suki will have. Here are our guesses.
Casey: 3
Missy: 5
Riley: 4
Cooper: 100
Ryan: 3

So, I'm not sure when Suki will have the babies, but I think it will be any day now. I can't wait to see how many she will have, and what they will look like. I'm hoping to keep one of them for our family and give the others to family and friends. I really want a kitten with orange and white fur and blue eyes, but I'm sure they will be precious no matter what they look like! :)
