If you want to go digital, then the K-r would be a natural upgrade.

As far as lenses go, something around 300mm is what you should look for. Here are a few used lenses you can try looking up:
Pentax-FA 80-320mm F4.5-5.6 Reviews - FA Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
Pentax-FA J 75-300mm F4.5-5.8 AL Reviews - FA J Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Or, here's an affordable ($160) 70-300mm lens from Tamron that would also work well:
Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Lens for Pentax AF017P700
