San Diego Safari Park


Our mini Kober family stayed overnight inside the San Diego Safari Park over Mother’s Day weekend. It was awesome! The tent we stayed in overlooked the African Plains, here giraffes and rhinos roamed. We were given behind-the-scenes tours of the park, a few presentations with some of their smaller animals and had a campfire that included s’mores (some more of what?)! Here are some pictures from our adventure:

First Saturday: Lots of Visitors at the Hospital

This was our second to last day at the hospital, and we had plenty of visitors. Both my parents and Chris’s came, along with my grandparents, my sister (Julie) and her husband (Matt!), and my aunt (Annette) and uncle (Mont). Thank you for everyone that came and visited and brought presents and well wishes, it was so nice to have family there to keep us company and meet the most adorable baby of his generation!


Hello World!

Baby Roger Mormino Kober was born on March 1, 2012 at 1:52 pm via c-section. And good thing it was c-section, because he is one big baby, 9 pounds 5 ounces and 20 inches long. Chris and I are so happy to introduce you to baby Roger. Here are some pictures from his first day out of the womb.
