Today as my co-workers and I were walking out of our building for a meeting, we came across the cutest thing ever: a duck and 9 chicks.  I had to stop and take a picture, or two.  It was so precious.  I felt just like a little kid, but I hadn't seen little baby ducks in a long time.  They were probably a long way from home (well kinda) because there is not a body of water that close to my office.  I hope they made it home safely!  This totally made my day.  How could this not make you smile?

I Need Your Help!

For all of you moms out there (or for those of you who just know things), what 5 things could you have NOT lived without when your babies were little?  Since we now know that we're having a boy, I am ready to start purchasing baby things.  However, I just don't even know where to start.  If any of you wise mothers have any advice for me, I will gladly take it!  Thanks!

The Verdict Is In

As I previously posted, May 3rd was our three year anniversary.  However, that was not the only exciting thing going on that day.  At 5:00 I had my ultrasound appointment!  I was so excited, and very nervous (but only for the hour before).  It was a really cool experience that made my pregnancy feel even more real.  The best part of it was that we found out that we're having a BOY!!  I was hoping for a boy, well we both were, so we're pretty excited.  Everything looks good, which was a relief to me.  I really had no reason for concern, but I've never had a child before so I just didn't know what to expect.  I'm just really happy now and so is Eric.

After we left the appointment we went to Babies R Us and bought a cute little outfit.  I let Eric pick it out.  It has a little monkey on the bum and is so cute.  I can't wait to have a little baby to put the outfit on.  He's going to be super cute!  We then went to celebrate our anniversary at Texas Roadhouse.  We both like that place, and I'm finally feeling good enough that a steak didn't sound repulsive.

Also, I already gave Eric his anniversary present a few weeks ago, but he gave me mine that day.  It's a video camera!  We had mentioned getting one at one point, but then never really discussed it.  Well he got it for me and said he didn't want to miss anything from here on out.  What a sweet guy.  I'm excited to have one.  I can take a lot of videos of my cute little boy once he gets here, so watch out blog!

Anyways, here's what you really want to see, the ultrasound photos:

 Happy Friday!

Week-end Cabin Getaway

Last Friday night Eric went with his good friends Sean and Ryan up to Sean's family cabin near Oakley, UT.  Sean is getting married on May 7, so they were going up for a last hoorah before Sean gets married.  They actually dubbed this week-end "Man's Week-end."  Well, that name wasn't quite fitting because the significant others were invited up on Saturday night.   
Us girls left to come up at about 4 PM on Saturday.  The boys had told us that there was a lot of snow up there.  We thought they were joking because we hardly saw any snow until about 10 minutes before we got there.  Oh and there was A LOT of snow.  A little while after we got there we enjoyed a delicious meal of dutch oven BBQ chicken and cornbread, and tin foil veggies.  It was yummy!  Good job everyone.

We then ventured inside to hang out and make smores and dough boys.  Dough boys are a little pie looking treat made from biscuits being cooked on a special wooden stick.  I love them.  We also decided to all sleep in the main room on the couch and on two mattresses because the cabin was freezing!  The main area had a wood burning stove making it the warmest room.  After getting our beds all set up we put in Inception to watch.  We actually all fell asleep except for Eric.  He turned the movie off early though because watching it alone was no fun.

The next morning we woke up to a very cold cabin.  It was 28 inside!  The fire had died out and we were all cuddled up so we didn't notice the chill until we woke up.  Man it was cold.  We got the fire started and the place warmed up a little.  After a delicious breakfast of donuts and breakfast casserole we decided to take a walk since the sun was finally shining.  The area was beautiful.  It felt so good to get outside.  After we got back from our walk, we packed up and went home.  I'm glad we were able to go.  It was a lot of fun.
