Last Wednesday, the playgroup in my ward went to a petting zoo. It is in this little old western themed town up red rock canyon. I usually don't go to playgroup because Kate is still to young to go play at the park and other activities, but somedays I just want to get out of the house and interact with people who actually talk. It was fun to get out and hang out with friends but this place was seriously disgusting. Thank goodness Kate was still young enough to not care because if she were old enough, I wouldn't have let her go anywhere near the animals. After the gross animals (I swear some of them were dead) we went to a western show. The show was a hanging. A real man pretended to get hung in front of all the little children. Yikes. Let's just say we won't be going there again anytime soon. 
On a side note, Kate has now been sick for over 2 weeks. I feel so bad for her. It has been a sleepless two weeks for the both of us. I finally took her to the doctor on Friday and they said she has fluid in her ears that is causing her runny nose and coughing that could turn into an ear infection. Let's hope not! Get better Kate.

9 months

Kate turned 9 months on Wednesday. Her 9 month check-up was on Tuesday. She weighs 23 pound, which is the 95% and is 28 3/4 inches long, which is the 75%. Luckily she didn't have to get any shots because they would not have been able to give them to her anyway because she is sick. On Monday and Tuesday she had fever and now she has a terrible cough and runny nose. I feel so bad for her, she is miserable. But besides her being sick, she is so fun to be around and she is a great workout. She can climb up the stairs now (scary!) and is starting to cruise around furniture. We took her 9 months pictures a little early on easter Sunday because we wanted to take them in her cute easter dress. I still can't find my cord (I think it is it time I order a new one.) I can't believe she is almost 1 already.

We had a great easter this year! We just celebrated by ourselves but it was still really fun. Kate loved her easter basket. She got a baseball toy, a ball, and lots of clothes. Kate, unfortunately got a fever that day and still is not feeling 100%. For dinner we had a yummy ham, jello and asparagus. I'll upload the pictures of Kate with her basket when I find my cord. I love celebrating easter and am so thankful for my Savior, Jesus Christ who died for us.

go rockies!

I have been doing a terrible job at updating my blog but I have a (sort of) excuse. I can't find the cord to upload the pictures from my camera to the computer and I still can't find it so we are going pictureless. As soon as a find it I'll post the pictures. Anyway, a couple of weekends ago the Colorado Rockies were in town playing the Mariners. Since there are no professional sports here, they always get two teams each year to come and play at the minor's stadium. Phil loves the rockies, so we had to go! Unfortunately, it was FREEZING! We only stayed for 3 innings. But it was still fun to go to the game and have a date night to ourselves.
