Sarah's Birthday at the zoo! 8/24

For Sarah's actual birthday we headed to the SF zoo. We make it there about once every year. Sarah enjoys it more and more every year. After an extreme tantrum on the way there, it ended up to be okay. ;) Too bad it was cold.

^Even if it doesn't look like it, Sarah had a great time.
^Kai slept pretty much the whole time
^One of Sarah's favorite things was to climb on all the fake animals. :)

^I know it's mostly sleeping pictures, but that's what he does. :)
^Sarah didn't mind posing for the camera.
^Ed got some great shots!
^Probably only see signs of this nature in San Fran
^Climbing on more animals
^Shows you how cold it was. Yes, that is a monkey under a blanket. :)
^ What a handsome daddy
^ Look at that tongue!
^She's tall! But not that tall!
^ This gorilla gives us some great poses every year.
^Cute little baby monkey with momma.
^Great picture Ed!
Finishing the remnants of her cake. Sarah had candle blowing down by the time her birthday came.
^Birthday loot! Thanks everyone! Her biggest present was her big girl bed and bedroom set.
^Enjoying new birthday toys! Can't you tell by her face. ;)

^4th of July ward breakfast
^ The kids at Shoreline fireworks. Austin, Sarah, Sydney and Leah.

The lovely ladies we spent the night with. Maren & Kristen (and their hubbies Ryan & David)

Kai's birth 7/8/09

Somehow we though to take a picture while I was in labor between contractions.
^ Post baby. The euphoria of a new baby! Welcome baby boy still waiting for a name!
^Meet daddy!
^SO much brighter than in mommy's belly! Look at all that hair!
^Family of 4!!
^Meet big sis Sarah!
^Happy, proud daddy! Still rested. :)
^ The child that made us want another. :)
^Chillin' in the hospital
^Proud mama :)
^ Keeping warm
^Pretty excited Sarah. Hasn't realized yet we're taking him home. :)
^ Since I got a new baby... so did Sarah. :)
^But then SHE wanted to be the baby. :) Nice.
^ Our last day we decided on Kai Edward for baby boy's name. Bye bye somewhat luxurious hospital life where we've waited on by nurses.
Heading home to brave life with 2 kids. :) One for each of us. Not outnumbered yet! Wish us luck!

7/11-22 At home

Some cute pics of our kids the first couple weeks after Kai's birth.
Sleepy boy!

^China dress and piggies.
^We're all tired around here.

^ Little chicken legs

^ Little bundle
^Their look changes so much over the first couple months.
^Since we moved from our apartment that had a pool to a house without a pool, we decided Sarah needed something. She loves it!
