Morning at the park

I have discovered a cute little park south of Wal-mart in Orem.  Thanks Melissa for telling me about it :)  It has a play area, a duck pond, a fountain, tons of flowers, and this huge swing thingy.  Yeah, don’t know how else to explain that last one, you’ll just have to see for yourself.  We took a bunch of bread today to feed the ducks, and I was happy that they were actually hungry.  Kylie spent the majority of the time eating the bread instead of throwing it, but I think she had fun :)  She loved playing in the fountain…which I don’t blame her because it was hotter than Hades outside.  Anyway, I thought I should at least post something since I haven’t for a while.  There really hasn’t been anything new going on.  I will be 23 weeks tomorrow and I must say, this child is WAY more active than Kylie ever was.  Pretty much everyday I am able to see her move in my belly.  It’s kind of creepy still sometimes to think there is an actual human being in there, but it’s still pretty cool :)  

I hope you all have a great 4th of July weekend!

A visit from my brother

My younger brother Shane was on leave from the military for a few weeks and was staying in Vegas for that time.  He came up last Saturday to spend the weekend with us.  It was really nice to see him – just wish it was more than once a year :)  Saturday morning we had a big breakfast with him and my other brother Damian and his family.  Later that afternoon we took a hike up to Upper Falls in Provo Canyon.  I had never been there, but I really enjoyed the waterfalls and the hike.  Later that afternoon we decided to take Shane on a ride through the mountains.   I hope he enjoyed his stay here.  We love you Shane!  Come back again!

Me, Damian, Shane

Grand Gulch

Over Memorial Day weekend, Austin, Kylie, and I went to Grand Gulch with Austin’s brother and wife.  We had a lot of fun and saw many Indian ruins.  We had an awesome campsite and really it would have been the perfect weekend had it not been for the bugs.  These little black ANNOYING bugs were everywhere.  They bit too.  The first day we were there, Kylie and I didn’t have any hats or anything and our heads got bit quite a lot.  They also liked flying into your ears.  I was waving my arms so much trying to shoo them away and slapping myself every 2 seconds that I honestly looked like I was having a fit.  Austin bought us some bandanas that night, so we were much better the rest of our trip.  Anyway, enjoy the pics.

And we’re having….

A GIRL!!!  I cannot tell you how happy I was today to hear that we are having another girl!  Not that I have anything against having boys, but I would have given ANYTHING to have a sister near my age.  I had to wait 15 years before my sister was born, and then I left for college when she was 3.  So I am excited for Kylie :)  We have a few names picked out.  So far we’ve been thinking about Sierra, Jayden, Brielle, and my favorite – Kennadi.  What do you think?   I get fixated on a new name like every month so we will just have to see!  But for now, enjoy the 2 pics of our little girl.

I love her little hand by her face.


Her cute little feet :)
