A Day in the Sun

We all had a fun family outing this past Saturday. First, we started off at the downtown Kansas City farmer's market.

Then, we took Kestan to Shawnee Mission Park for our first family bike ride together. At first, he was very interested, and enjoyed seeing all the sites around him. He even liked wearing his bike helmet, but we didn't get far before it completely covered his eyes. His head has some growing to do.

We rode for quite a while and after about 30 minutes Kestan got very sleepy. It must have been the 80 degree weather, the fresh air and the peace that comes from being out in nature (...and the fact that it was 2 hours past his nap time!).
We enjoyed some rests on the park benches, too, while Kestan slept.

Ah...the sweetness of summer.

Mommy's Little Helper

As all of you who have children know, it truly is the simple things in life that make our kids happy. If it resembles a box, a pan, a bottle cap, or a broom, (and looks nothing like a purchased toy), then Kestan loves playing with it. Just as he likes the everyday household activities - who needs Gymboree when you can help mommy clean out the refrigerator?

Kestan helped me clean out each shelf. His favorite part was throwing the grapefruit, putting the mustard and ketchup in the trash and of course...getting inside. (Don't worry...I was there the entire time!!)

Weekend Road Trip

My dad, sister, Kestan and I ventured to Omaha this past weekend to see the zoo, and then went a little further north to Sioux City, Iowa to visit my grandparents. We have fun photos and memories to share. Here's just a few until we have time to download the rest.

Kestan is an AMAZINGLY easy and fun traveler!

Mother's Day

Hope all of you mother's had a wonderful day! I certainly did. Chris, Kestan and I enjoyed a great brunch at Blue Bird in downtown Kansas City and then we spent the afternoon hanging with Mom and Jeff. It was a rainy day, which was a perfect backdrop for eating sweet potato soup and watching Jim Carrey's "Yes, Man".

We have started this new blog as a way to document all of the changes and special, everyday moments that we get to experience now as a family of three. Kestan's website is down for a bit, so until we figure out those glitches, this will be the new link to his photos and videos. I'm excited to have this blog up because everyday I say, "I need to write that in his baby book" and for some reason I never do. So I'm hoping that keeping up with these day-to-day happenings will be easier on the computer.
Our sweet boy is growing up before our eyes!
