This week Cooper and I met our friends at the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History. While Corpus doesn't boast a very big or elaborate museum, it is perfect for kids! The kids were free to play in the children's area and explore the rest of the museum without the mom's having to worry to much about anything being broken or damaged.

This weekend our old friends Paul and Marcia came down for a visit. We hadn't seen them in a long time, so it was great to catch up! Of course they brought their little boy Hunter, who is only 2 weeks older than Cooper. The boys had a great time playing together! They had fun swimming, playing with toys, and going to the beach. Shame on me, I didn't take enough pictures! But here are a couple:

Ok, so I love technology as much as the next person, but I don't LOVE technology like many of my counterparts seem to. Therefore, I am not the techno-savviest. I have had tons of pictures of Cooper on my phone for months but didn't know how to get them onto my computer so that I could post them. Luckily, Cooper has at least one techno-savvy parent who recently swooped in and saved the day. Dad downloaded (or uploaded?) all 118 pictures from my phone on to my computer so that I could finally share them! Thought I should, since very soon this blog won't just be about Cooper.
Here they are!
