Yes that is 16 boxes of fruit snacks!!! they are normally $2.99 a box I got ALL 16 for $1.70!!!!! yahOOOOOOO! yes thats right I got all 16 for LESS than ONE box!!! if I would have bought 16 boxes at regular price it would have cost $47.84. that is an 81% savings!!!!

I have been trying to get into the coupon game for a few weeks and this is my first "big" purchase!!! Thanks to heather for walking me through how to do it! I loved the look on the cashiers face when my total for one purchase was 50 cents for 4 boxes. he had to read the checkout to make sure he did it right and the lady in line behind me asked me if she was seeing thing right It made me feel so good !!!!

Childrens Museum

Cooper and I were able to go to the Children's Museum last Wednesday. I was only able to take a few pictures because he was ALL OVER THE PLACE.

He loved the water room. He kept trying to climb into this little pool. its only a flat hand deep but he got his sleeves and the bottom of his pants soaked. He was smiling and laughing the whole time

The exhibit this month is "Clifford the Big Red Dog" Cooper loved it. He was so excited to drive/ this is the ferry, He was so excited that they had a car also that he bullied his was into it. there was a little girl that was sitting in it and cooper just walked right up and tried to push the mom out of the way while saying "car car" over and over. luckily the other mom thought it was cute and let Cooper have a turn. he was in heaven

Cooper is already practicing to follow in his dad's footsteps!

By the time we were done we were both tired. We had lots of fun is you live in or visit the Portland area its a great place to visit, its in the same parking lot as the Zoo.

When we got home I gave Cooper the treat of Mac'n'Cheese for lunch. so i loaded his tray and then went to the computer. I turned around to check on him since he was being so quiet and this is what i saw....

I didn't realize that he was so tired. He wore himself out with all that fun.

Cross your fingers

after an eventful week with cars(mine broke and I kept killing Chris') we are headed down to Springfield. Chris has an interview/ meeting with a Dentist in Eugene. Tomorrow(sat). I am excited that things are starting to happen but also trying not to get to excited. He also has a interview/meeting with a dentist in Sweet home later this month. I can't believe that we only have about4 and a half months left. It is so crazy.

In other news we are having a great time. Cooper and I went to the Children's museum on Wed. It is so fun I love it. He ran around all over the place. his favorite rooms were, the water room, The Clifford the big red dog exhibit, and the CAR room. Cooper loves cars. he says "car" all the time. Cooper is talking more than ever and has recently learned "boo" he will hide and then say Boo to us it is so cute!

I will post pics soon
