Echo Lake

We didn't do much boating this summer with having a new baby and all but we did attend our annual ward boating trip. I'm sad to see summer come to an end. It's my favorite time of year and it passed me right by.

My older brother Jake (the one that just got married) has had a lot of work in Utah so he has been staying with us the past few months while his wife is in dental school in Iowa. Poor newlyweds! Needless to say, it's always a party at the Kessler household I tell ya!

Azy's Baby Shower

I hosted a baby shower for one of my dearest, bestest friends Azy.
Her and her hubby are moving away to Vegas for school and having their first child in November! I'm so excited for them to embark on the joys of parenting. They will be great parents.

I can't wait to meet baby Gus and all the other little ones on the way!

2 weeks of #?!*

A few weeks ago we attempted to get out and enjoy some of the great things about living in Utah! We walked around beautiful temple square for family night, went to my favorite petting zoo, and went to This Is The Place to appreciate our pioneer heritage.

Thanksgiving Pointe's animal farm is my favorite because it is close, cheap, small, and my kids love it! They are both animal lovers.

Weston was so cute this time and he was SO excited to ride the horse!

Franklin looking a little uncomfortable.

The best part was the baby animals!

There were more animals at This Is The Place so we thought it was going to be another good day.

Avaree playing school in an old school house.

Unfortunately, she came down with something and you can see it starting to hit her in this picture.

and this one.

Mckinley Koch and Weston. I didn't have Baylee and Griffin with me. I was so grateful for Mckinley's help!

We ended up leaving early because look at poor Av and thus began a mad sickness...

that rocked our entire family including the dog!
You know Avaree is sick when you find her like this in the middle of the day. And yes, she is wearing a pull up because she hasn't been able to make it to the toilet for 2 WEEKS now and Weston too!

I've never cleaned so much poop or done so much laundry in my entire life.
I'm exhausted.
I did the best I could to keep my sweet newborn from getting it but there was nothing I could do...

5 weeks old, in the middle of summer, with a nasty cough and congestion.
It is breaking my heart.

I keep thinking we will be better tomorrow... I'm still hoping. I need my babies to be healthy and I want to enjoy our last few weeks of summer!
