Playing around at Costco Optical - such a cute little nerd!

Heading up the mountain for a camping trip! Cora and Elijah were little troopers, they carried their own packs all the way to the campsite! Cora's had most of her supplies in it, and was fairly heavy, for a 4 year old. Elijah's backpack is actually a little bigger than Cora's but was filled with pillows, so it was light. Still, it was hard for him to carry.
We didn't manage to take many photos in January. Ryan's mom was in the hospital - that month she woke up and started talking, and moved from the Queens ICU to the Rehab Hospital in town. We spent a lot of time going back and forth to town to visit. We were so happy when we were able to talk with her again! That's what we had all been praying for - including Cora, who would pray that "Grandma could wake up and talk to us again."
This photo was when she was still asleep at Queens but gave Cora's little hand a squeeze.
My mom came out for a couple of week to help us out and to visit. She was able to be here for Elijah's 2nd birthday, which was nice. She helped me do a few projects and get my house back in order after a kind of crazy holiday season. I hadn't been feeling well so it was a real blessing to have her here.
Here are some pics of the kids at the beach while she was here (although we didn't get either of us in any of these photos)
