Good News

Josh and I are having a baby!! We are so excited. We wanted to wait until we had heard the baby's heartbeat and we got to hear it last Thursday and it was probably the coolest thing I have ever heard! I have been feeling great! I guess I was one of the lucky ones not to feel any morning sickenss or really anything except tired. So our estimated due date is April 2.
I told Josh that I was pregnant by building him a baby bear and putting together a little baby package. Luckily he caught on pretty quick that we are having a baby. So now we are just gearing up for that. Any tips for having a baby would be great! I am a little nervous but more excited.

Horseback Riding

My brother in law's family has a horse and they invited us to come riding with them last night becuase they were taking my nieces. Josh was so excited. Unfortunately, by the time we got there it was starting to get dark so all they had time for was a few laps around. I personally didn't really want to ride so I just enjoyed watching them. Madison did not want to get off the horse, she was loving it!! Marli on the other hand was terrified of the horse, so she also just watched. All in all it was a fun night for everyone.

Weekend Summary

Well this last weekend was pretty crazy and fun. I ended up getting sick after we got back from Missouri with a cold/sinus thing that has NOT been fun!! But on Saturday I threw a baby shower for one of my Best Friends and that turned out to be a lot of fun. It was really good to see her again because I don't get to hardly ever see her, she lives in St. George. Then after that we went with my family up to Little Cottonwood Canyon and had a campfire and cooked some dinner and dutch oven dessert and played games. It was so much fun and the time there flew by!! Next time we go we will plan for more time and wear warmer clothes. It was Freezing!! But a fun weekend back at home.

Missouri Trip

Whew!! We are back! What an adventure we had. I will just start from the beginning. Sorry if you get bored reading this. We left on Sunday the 31st of August and drove about 12 hours and stopped in a place called Grand Island, Nebraska. Our hotel was AWFUL!! We walked in the room and immediately saw a spider crawling down the wall. We were so exhausted we just decided to sleep and leave ASAP. I didn't even dare walk on the carpets without my shoes. So needless to say we left pretty early the next morning and finished our 4 1/2 hour drive to Missouri. We got there and all of Josh's family were helping fix up an old building they bought to start a quilting business. So our Monday was spent helping with that. We tore down old wallpaper, the guys built a wall and the kids had a great time building their own little fort area.
The next few days kind of blend together a little bit for me. We spent time hanging out with the family and Josh spent some time working on the Lemon Fresh business with his brother. Josh and I took a day and went and visited a Psychiatric Museum and went shopping. That was a lot of fun. The museum was so fascinating to me and yet it was so creepy too. Last Saturday the whole family got together and had a BBQ at a skate park to help promote Lemon Fresh. We had a great time and it was so much fun for me to see Josh skate. After that the girls left the kids with the boys and we took off shopping for the afternoon. Gotta love girl time!!
Monday morning came WAY too fast and it was time for us to leave again. This time we stopped in Laramie, Wyoming and the hotel wasn't as bad as the first night we left but it still wasn't great. It is great to be home now and sleeping in our own beds again. Thanks so much to everyone who let us stay with them and for feeding us. We had so much fun and can't wait to come out again. Sorry for the lack of pictures. I was just having way too much fun.

Kind of a gross picture but hilarious!! I came out to find Josh and his brother Alan playing nintendo like this. Nothing like brothery love!!
Josh loves his nieces and nephews. He was even playing Barbies with Ella for her birthday.
These next pictures were at the skate park BBQ. Isn't my husband so handsome?

Proof that I was there. It rained almost everyday we were there. I loved it!! I sure wish we could get some more rain out here in Utah!!
