Little Miss Emry Mae Rikli

So last night, we FINALLY got to meet Emry! Emry Mae Rikli was born on April 3rd (two weeks ago today!) she was 4 weeks early and weighed in a 5 lbs. 3 oz. Because she was so early Emry was not quited strong enough to eat on her own and had to stay at the hospital for a few days before she could come home. We are so happy that she is now home and doing very well! We waited what felt like FOREVER before we got to meet her. Here are a few pics of our visit, and I must say that this little girl is simply beautiful!

I loved holding her! She is just a teeny little cuddler!

Kevin was so excited to finally get him some Emry time! He thinks she is the cutest thing ever! He just kept saying, "She is so tiny!"

She is just sooo cute!
We are so excited for Cole and Jess! And we are so happy that Emry is finally home and doing so well! She is a beautiful funny little girl! She is a feisty little one and really hates her oxygen and enjoys pulling it off! Her mommy calls her "Little Miss Mae" and it is the perfect little spunky nic name for her! We love her and we are so excited to welcome this little joy into our family!

70% Healed!

So we went to Kevin's doctor appointment yesterday. His leg is looking so good! Dr. Olsen said that he wants to see him back in 6 weeks and that will probably be our last follow up visit! he said that at that next visit Kevin should be about 90% healed, so we figure that puts him at about 70% healed now.

Here is Kevin, this is as we were packing up for the Sand Dunes for Easter weekend. This is the first bike he has ridden since his wreck! And when May hits he will be back on his dirt bike! He is so excited and I am very excited for him! We are so thankful that he has healed so well and that he hasn't had any problems with his leg! Thanks everyone for all of your support throughout this whole process!

Easter Weekend

This year we headed out to the Sand Dunes for Easter weekend. We always have a good time out there along with the thousands of other people! We had a great time camping with Brett and Jamee, and Dan and Marti, along with a bunch of new friends. We also had fun visiting the crazy other camp of friends. It was nice to get out of town and camp and hang out with friends, not to mention the great food we ate!

The weekend was also a milestone for Kevin, it was his first time back on something with a motor after his accident. He had a lot of fun being able to ride. He isn't back on his bike yet, so we doubled up on the 4 wheeler, and he only ALMOST rolled us TWICE! ha ha! It was great to see him enjoying himself, even though he is really anxious to get back on his bike... he had a hard time watching Brett and Dan jump and mess around on their bikes and not being able to hit the jumps with them. But May is coming very soon and he'll be back on his bike in no time!

We don't have any pics because it is really hard for me to take pictures of him riding, when we're riding together! Hope everyone had a good and fun filled weekend!!!

Okay, well I haven't updated for awhile so here it is. Guess who is walking?... yep KEVIN IS! He is finally off the crutches 100% and he is even back at work! We are both really excited about these things! He is doing really well and everything is healing just the way that it should! He has another appointment with the doctor on the 16th of this month for more x rays. It is really crazy to see all of the new bone that is forming! He isn't able to ride... yet, but he has gotten all of his flexibility back and can actually bend his leg all the way back and into "kick start" position, but doesn't have the strength to actually kick the bike over yet, and as he and his friends always say, "If you can't kick it, you can't ride it!" so he is staying true to that and isn't even going to try until at least May. We are however going to the dunes for Easter weekend with the 4 wheeler and we are really excited to get out there! We just got him a new helmet since his was totally mangled after that wreck, and he is still deciding on the gear that he wants, since all of his got cut off... 
As for me, I am just hanging out. Attending a bunch of baby and bridal showers. Jess (Kevin's cousin's wife) just had her AMAZING baby shower, I am going to Chelsey's (another of Kevin's cousin's soon to be wife) tonight. A big thanks to Jayme and Krystal for providing me with the great gifts!! Heather and Tyson's wedding is coming along pretty well, still planning... And that is about it.
Hope everyone is doing well!
