Kyah's 5th Birthday

I can't believe my baby is 5 years old.
We had a combined birthday party and family dinner with her and Uncle Andrew who's birthday is the 4th.  We had a great time eating and spending time together.
Kyah wanted a Littlest Pet Shop Birthday - in fact she wanted it so much she wanted to do it two years in a row.  She wanted the butterfly this year and next year she wanted a cake with figures on it.
So, we decided just to combine in one big bang.
Uncle Andrew is much easier, he just likes rice krispie treats. :)
Such an easy request can't be denied.
Happy Birthday Kyah Banana and Uncle Andrew!

Family reunion of the Zoo Variety

During our Smith Family Reunion we made a visit to the Hogle Zoo to see the new exhibit and have some fun exploring with our cousins.

The new Rocky Shores Exhibit is very cool and definately worth checking out.
I LOVE Jaxon's face in this picture.  He's watching the Sea Lion show.
The Tigers put on an amazing show!  I've never seen them so active.  They were chasing each other and swimming and playing.  I've never been so glad for thick safety glass.

Here is Kyah smiling before the ride actually started, once it started it quickly vanished.

Introducing Mr. P

Introducing my new nephew Mr. P.  The kids were so excited to meet him and hold him.  With all of these pregnant bellies they were anxious to get to actually hold a baby - I was too.

My baby sister and twin is now a mommy - I am so proud of her.  Mr. P is so handsome and such a good baby.  I am so excited to get to spend time with them as he grows up.  Rach and Andrew are our partners in crime and we love them so much.  Congrats guys!!

First Day of Kindergarten

My baby girl started Kindergarten - can you believe it?
Since she misses the deadline at the public school by 2 whole days we've enrolled her in a local private school.  I really hope that she will love it and I really think she will.  Not only do they offer a full curriculum but, she has a music class, chinese class and a yoga/karate class.  With the baby coming we really wanted her to have something of her own to be a part of and to be proud of and I really think this will be it.  She is so so excited.

New Year, New School

Poor kid, this is his 3rd year of school and his 3rd new school.  He is such a trooper.  We are also going on a year round schedule instead of the traditional we are used to.
Changes, changes everywhere.
It's a good thing kids are so flexible.
I know that he'll do great!

All in a Days Work

Koerner girls love to throw parties - any excuse for food and decorations works for me.
In one day of madness we threw a bridal shower and a wedding shower.
Food and food and more food.  Just the way we like it.

For the bridal shower we did an outdoor luncheon with an orange and yellow palette.

For the baby shower we had a more Pinterest inspired party.
This party was desserts only and with yellow, white and grey as the colors there were plenty of options to choose from.

Not to Give Free Advertising, But...

Where else can you walk a few minutes from home and enjoy this?
We really miss our friends and neighbors in Layton - a lot truthfully, but if we have to miss our friends and family this area is an awesome place to do it.

I Love to See the Temple

Living less than 5 minutes from the temple is an amazing perk to living in Daybreak.
Nothing like a little walk around the temple on a Sunday evening.
