Weekend Events

Our summer has been really busy with work, baby, and studying. Lately, our days go a little like this...Cooper wakes up, Brady goes to work, I stay home with Cooper (clean, study, be a mother), Brady gets home, I make dinner, we do something as a family (usually a walk or a little drive), Cooper goes down for bed, we pick up, read, then go to bed. It seems to be the same ol' routine every single day. Don't get me wrong, I need to have a routine or I get a little uptight but I do miss being spontaneous and doing whatever, whenever. Below is our weekend of fun! BEWARE: it's long and possibly boring :)

Friday afternoon I asked Brady what he wanted to do. He said he wanted to watch the Netflix movie that had come and I thought that would be a great idea! So after Cooper went to sleep we made a little bed in our living room and turned on the movie. We attempted to make some popcorn, but I think it was too old. Not even half of the kernels popped! So we went without popcorn but enjoyed the movie together. We watched Valentine's Day. I wouldn't recommend it.

Saturday: We had talked about going to Ketchum or maybe Utah. Then we got a call about a birthday party on Saturday and we decided to stay in town and attend that. Friday we got a call from Brady's parents and they were going to be at a craft show about 2 hours away so we decided last minute (saturday morning) we would drive up there to see them. It ended up being a 3 hours drive but it was so beautiful! We drove along the Sawtooth Mountains in a very green area. It made me miss Michigan's beauty. The sky was a bright blue with not a cloud in sight. However, it was extremely hot and Brady's air conditioning doesn't work very well. We only had to stop to feed Cooper once and change his stinky diaper. He slept for a little bit but played and talked to himself the rest of the time. He does this cute thing where he'll turn his head around just to look at Brady and I. When we got to the craft show we sat around their tent and talked. It was nice to be outside and with his family. They cuddled Cooper and mentioned how much he has changed. He even slept in Grandma's arms, which really surprised us because he never does that (only when he's exhausted). We were there for a few hours and then headed home. We stopped at a small town and ate at Wise Guy Pizza Pie. Brady was feeding Cooper when the pizza came out. It was super super hot. Cooper went to relax and stretch his arm out and it hit the sizzling pizza (I was up getting silverware). Of course he screamed and I didn't know what was happening. Brady didn't really know either since he didn't see it. Cooper calmed down and then we decided to leave. He did really well all the way home. He slept the entire time. When we got home we gave him some tylenol just in case his finger hurt (it was just a little red and swollen).

Sunday we slept in and went to church! I slept until 11:30 and Brady was up with Cooper :) I needed the sleep. We missed the first hour and went to Sunday School and Sacrament. It is so difficult to make it through all of church when Sacrament is last. Cooper gets pretty tired and doesn't sleep well with things around him. He's too interested in everyone else. We went home and rested for a little bit and cleaned up our house. We FINALLY unpacked our clothes. We have been wearing the same things over and over. Now our closet is full and no more boxes in our bedroom. Travis and Alisha invited us over for dinner! We had delicious fajitas, played ladder ball, and sat around and talked. We always have fun with them and we are enjoying our time with them! We headed home late and Cooper was up until midnight!! He was not a happy baby. I had to rock him and sing him to sleep (which never happens). He was up every 2 hours! He hasn't done that since like 5 weeks old. It was hard on both Brady and I. I ended up having him cry himself to sleep this morning so that I could get some rest. He's been great ever since!! We think his teeth are starting to really bother him now and we've been slacking on his bedtime routine. Hopefully he is better in the next few nights.
Super Cooper! Looking like a big boy in his button up shirt.

Well, that's our entire weekend! It was nice spending time together as a family and being out of the house.
