Mato & Amy Are Having a Baby!!!

I got the sweetest voicemail last night from this little boy named Ian.

A few months ago, he helped me film and edit a video for Uncle Mato and Aunt Amy. We wanted to interview the cousins, during Amy's first few weeks of pregnancy, to capture their thoughts on the new addition.

Since that day, he's been very patiently waiting for the world to hear the big news so that I could publish our final masterpiece.

Ian, thanks again for all your help making this video!! (And, thanks to Cole and Audrey too)! 
I think it really turned out adorable (mostly because you kids are simply the cutest on Earth), and you were such a big help!! Let's make another one together in Twin Falls, ok?

love, kerry

Just Keep Swimming!!

Audrey was so happy about her first swim lesson a few weeks ago!!

We tried swimming lessons when we first moved to Irvine from Huntington Beach last Spring, but there was a problem scheduling Audrey's lesson at the pool. We signed up and waited in the kiddy pool, but they never called Audrey's name, and wanted us to wait around for several hours for another lesson time. 
We were disappointed, to say the least in Waterworks Aquatics. 

Our experience is kinda summed up by this picture.

Anyways, second time was the charm.

You could tell Audrey felt pretty proud of herself, and concerned that I was ALWAYS watching... 

I thought she did a great job listening to Miss Devin.

 And, she certainly enjoyed the play time after instruction time was finished. 
Typical 3-year-old.

 I wish I could say the following 3-4 lessons were equally enjoyable (for her, for me, for John, and for Miss Devin). Holding her breath, and ducking under water wasn't her favorite thing to do...And, she made sure everyone knew it.

But, I'm happy to report that she's on her way to becoming a great, happy little swimmer....

And, doesn't mind the yellow water either.

I, however, will be happily watching from the sidelines from now on. 

love, kerry

April Fools

They met on April Fool's Day, 1953.

And, married 18 days later. 

April 18, 1953

Every year on this day, with a big smile my Grandma would say, 
"we met on April Fool's Day and it's been a joke ever since!"

Some of the best jokes are worth remembering, and sharing...

Happy April Fool's Day, Grandma and Grandpa!! 
I miss you.

love, kerry
