Kenny turned 5 months on March 24th. We have a special frame for a picture from every month of his first year. We try to make the pictures a little special, so even though this was taken a week before his “birthday” we are using it as his official 5 month picture.
We drove Pike’s Peak one of our last days in Colorado. We almost weren’t able to drive to the top because of snow, but the sun came out and cleared off the roads. Once again here are some pictures from the adventure.
Emma wasn’t overly happy at that his moment. We had just told her to get back into the car and she wasn’t quite ready to do so.
Here we are at the top. Emma was a trooper and we were able to get this picture. She even gave us a smile.
Papa Fish and Kenny had a moment here. We’ve been asked who Kenny looks like. We’ve heard that he looks like both of this Grandfathers. We will have to post a picture of Kenny with his Grandpa Swany. Then you will all have to let us know what you think…who does Kenny look like?
Our blog isn’t always chronological. The pictures in this post occurred just after I was starting to feel better on our trip to Colorado. The weather was so nice that Tammy, Emma, and I walked to a park. These are just some of our favorite pictures from the adventure.
Cousin Avery had her 10th birthday party this last weekend. Her actual birthday is March 17th. Her she is with her cake.
Also at the party was Aunt Tessa, Uncle Ryan and Kenny
These were all taken on Monday, the day before St. Patrick’s Day. We had hoped to post them yesterday, but I (Dana) was sick with the stomach flu. It started Monday night, but by last night I was feeling pretty good. So though a day late, Happy St. Patrick’s day.
Emma loves to trace her hands and feet. We even got big enough paper at home to trace her whole body. During one of our visits to Great Grandmother on Monday, Emma traced her own hand and then Great Grandma’s hand.
Our main activity for today was to visit Great Grandma Howard. Great Grandma is Tammy’s mom’s mom. She lives here in Pueblo. We spend time just talking and being together. It was nice and relaxing.
It is Spring Break for the Swanstrom household and we are off in Pueblo, Colorado visiting Tammy’s grandmother and Tammy’s parents. We flew yesterday from Minneapolis to Denver and everybody did quite well. Here are a couple of pictures from the plane ride.
Kenny did some sleeping and a lot of drooling.
Emma made use of some of the inflight entertainment options. Her she is watching a DVD. She also colored and played school.
Emma will start preschool next fall at a local church. This Friday is a preview day for the class though. The teacher mailed out a letter and it included Emma’s first homework assignment–to color and cut out a butterfly. She had so much fun doing it. Too bad at sometime homework will change from being lots of fun, to just work.
Here is a small little video of Kenny and his friend Ty Gorman. Kenny had the giggles, as he often does.
Here is maybe even a better video of Kenny laughing. Kenny is sitting on his Aunt Tessa’s lap and Grandpa Swany is providing the entertainment.
Here is Emma and Ava at Ava’s 3rd birthday party.
The Gunderson’s live just around the corner from us and their daughter Ava is just a few months younger than Emma. They also have a son (next picture) who is a couple months older than Kenny.
