it has been crazy! kya broke her arm last week...and then with my dad's horrible motorcycle accident we are having a hard time finding up from down! we have been trying to be up at the hospital as much as possible with my mom and dad. this can be trying at times with 2 kiddos! but each day we have seen baby steps do dad getting better. there are times where we all get emotional and frustrated about why this all happened, and wanting to make it better for dad. we have learned to take it one day at a time. and ya know it is okay to just say life kind of sucks right now :) but in the midst of all the stress and worry we are still enjoying our family and our kids! they can bring smiles even in the worst times! i love watching my dad smile when i wheel kinley in the stroller into his hospital room! thanks again for your prayers and support!

yesterday morning i got a phone call that my dad was in a bad motorcycle accident. we rushed down to denver general where he had been brought. we were so thankful he had his helmet on! he is currently still in icu with chest tubes...broken ribs...punctured lung...lacerated spleen...broken elbow...and major road rash and bruises!!
we are so thankful he was not hurt any worse and that he is stable at doing well!
thank you to all my friends and family who have been so supportive! all your calls and visits have been amazing! we will keep you updated! hopefully he will be home soon and on the road to recovery!!

yes we had our first broken bone!! kya was trying to be a good big sister and was hurrying up the stairs to tell daddy that kinley was crying and "needed to go to bed". as she headed back down she stumbled on her blanket and tumbled down the stairs. mark said it was quite a scary site! she ended up on her face on the hardwood floor and flipped. mark was mostly worried about her head and neck...but no problems there. just a little bump on her nose and shoulder. he noticed she was not using her right arm and decided she should have it checked out. i was at work so i met them downstairs at children's er. she was acting pretty good by the time they got to the er. she was flying her mariposa barbie all around the er :) mark and i were trying to decide if we should take her home and see how it felt in the morning. but she insisted we stay and have the doctor look at it. so we did and sure enough she broke both bones in her wrist. the doctors and nurses were amazed how she hardly acted like she was in any pain. she is amazing :) so we have it in a hard splint for a couple days then head to the orthopedic specialist so get it checked out and casted!
poor thing has been a trooper but is frustrated that she cannot swim, swing, ride her bike, etc! we are trying to come up with some creative ideas to get through the next month or two!!!

man kya is funny!! yesterday right before nap i found her attempting to stand and go potty like a boy. she looked up with with a really confused look on her face said " mommy where is my enis (penis) "? i was not quite sure what she was saying and the it hit me...and i started laughing then she got really serious and said " no mommy no laugh i lost it"!!! oh my goodness!! i had to pull myself together so that her feelings were not hurt. we had to sit down and talk about the differences between a boy and girl again...i wonder how many times she is going to be looking for her "enis" :)
then we climbed into bed and were reading a book before nap and a plane flew over our house and she said " mommy why is God bowling...it's nap time "!!! mark and i have told her when it is thundering that God is bowling and to not be scared!...she is too cute!
i love my days when i just get to be a mom! what fun!!

here are some pictures from the butterfly pavilion. we had a great time. kya had her butterfly wings on and "fluttered" through the entire exhibit :) she loved all the bugs too :)
kinley and mommy
mark and i had decorated the main level the night before kya's bday. she was so excited when she came downstairs that morning and saw all the decorations. she said "mommy thank you so much for the balloons...they my favorite". it was such a great time to take to celebrate her! gaga arrived soon after she woke up with a new butterfly purse filled with goodies. kya wanted a butterfly party so we made the entire day that theme. she dressed up as a butterfly for the day. we headed to mcdonalds for breakfast at the playland with gaga!
