It's been a little too long since someone has updated this blog, so I thought I would help...
Last Saturday, Tyler put on an amputee walk at Tempe Town Lake. Over 150 supporters showed up as well as the mayor of Tempe. Our whole fam was there so it was great to support Tyler and also support amputee awareness. These are just a few pics from that day.

Family trip to the zoo

So, it wasn't the whole family but a big chunk of us. Tara, Ryan, Hannah, Hunter, Tyler, Kristi, Emma, Hailey, Lorin, Lily & I all went to the zoo last Saturday. The weather was so nice we couldn't pass up the opportunity. It was way fun. Hannah was picked to help during an animal presentation. I think that made her feel special. We had fun enjoying the fun animals, the beautiful weather and the picnic we had afterwards. Good times!!

Crazy/Fun Month of May

Kellyn & Baby Camden

Camden Michael Carpenter. 8 lbs 7 ozs. 21.25 inches long.

Lily waiting to meet her Uncle Tanner.
These were the pics we took and hung in my mom's room for Mother's day. Hannah is looking oh so beautiful. She was the only one who looked perfect in all her pics.

We know the month is over just yet, but there is just so much that has happened so far. I just thought I would post a few pics of some of the things that have happened. The biggest of the events include: Mother's Day, Tanner safe arrival home from his mission, and Kellyn having her baby yesterday. It sure has been crazy at the Ritchey household, but it has also been a ton of fun!

Apparently, Hunter was too slow for Lily so she tried taking over. :)
Lily & Hunter swimming last week.
He was a little hesitant at first to get in the water but then he loved it.
Lily looks a little confused here.

It's so fun going to grandma's and having all the grandkids play together. We are almost doubling the amount of grandkids in one year (from 3 to 6). It's so fun!

Dying Easter Eggs

Emma, Kristi, Hannah, Hunter and Tara all joining in on the fun.

Lily was more interested in Hunter's sippy cup. It was so nice of him to share. He was trying really hard to help her get some milk. It was cute.

We got together this past weeks and dyed Easter eggs with the kids. I think they all had a blast. Hopefully, we can make this an annual tradition. By next Easter, Camden, will be born and Hailey, Hunter and Lily might participate a little more.

Martindales & Merkleys at the ZOO

Last Friday, the Martindale fam and Merkely fam went to the zoo and had a blast. The day was so nice and breezy which made the trip quite lovely!! Since Lily slept practically the whole time, all of the pics taken were of Hannah and Hunter... and the animals of course. :) As you can see, Hunter had a lot of fun at the petting zoo. He chased the goats around with a brush the entire time. :D

Old School Ritchey Fam

Easter is coming up so I thought it only appropriate to change the layout on the blog. I guess it really doesn't matter any way because most of my family doesn't even get on this thing any way. We're all suppose to be adding new posts and what not, but no one other than Kristi and myself do that. Oh well. Maybe one day they will surprise us. :)

Just for fun I thought it would be cool to add some OLD school pics of the fam. Hope you all enjoy. :)
