Ultrasound #4, and It's A.........

I had yet another ultrasound today, and was amazed at how much the baby has grown. It was so cute wiggling all around in there. I am only 13 weeks, so we didn't expect to find out what we are having until we came across this shot....

24th of July

I forgot how fun it is to live in a small town, especially during the 4th and 24th of July. On Wednesday night, our little town of Redmond had a big dinner at the park across the street from our house. Of course we went, because everybody goes, and it was like we were the new kids at school. Everybody was staring at us, and a lot of people came and introduced themselves, but everyone was really friendly. Luckily we have friends that live here, so we didn't feel to out of place, it ended up being really fun, and you can't beat the local live band ;-)

After the dinner, we headed up on the mountain with some of our friends from Gunnison. It was freezing, and of course, I was in flip flops so that didn't help things. Kennedi had so much fun playing with all of her "new best friends" and roasting marsh mellows.

Then on Thursday morning, we headed to Mayfield for the parade. Shane's parents did a float and all of the grand kids road on it with them and threw candy, they had so much fun!!

(Sorry, I hate my voice!)

Kyler, Jaymen, Kalie, Kennedi, and Kaden

This is what my poor car looked like after all of that, I think it's the dirtiest it's ever been.

Park City Getaway!

On Tuesday, our family went to Park City for 3 nights.. Shane had some meetings there for his new job. We stayed at the Hotel Park City, and wow was it NICE!!! Luckily we didn't have to pay for it. We stayed in an executive cottage suite that had a hot tub on our deck, and boy did Kennedi think she was cool in that thing!!

This was the view from our deck. I had never been to Park City before, and it is just beautiful!!

While Shane had meetings, Kennedi and I just hung out at the pool everyday. We had so much fun, and it was so relaxing. So far, I'm loving this new job!!!

Home Sweet Redmond

We are FINALLY here!!! The last month has been totally crazy. We picked Shane up at the airport in Phoenix on the 3rd at 7:00 pm, and started the 9 hour trek to Redmond. We finally got here at 4:30 am on the 4th. I will NOT miss that drive.

We then got up early on the 4th and headed to the Gunnison park so Kennedi (really Shane) could do all the fun stuff there.

So now we are just getting settled in our house. I hate waiting for everything to get hooked up. We got our Internet going tonight, and hopefully our TV will be going be Wed.

So far I've really enjoyed it here. It is so peaceful and the weather is so nice. We have the perfect little yard for Kennedi to play outside ALL DAY and she doesn't die of heat. I think we will really love it here.

American Idols Live

Last night, we had the sweetest girls night out!!!! My mom, my aunt Karleen, Marci, Lindsey, Tori, and I all went to the American Idols Live concert. It was sooo much fun!!!

First, I have to say, that I definatly think Michael Johns should have been in the top three. He was so good last night, and the crowd loved him. He sang "Dream On" by Aerosmith, and I was so excited, I loved it when he sang that song on the show, even though that was the week he got booted.

Each Idol came out and sang three songs in the order they were kicked off. Carly, Brook, and Dreads all did really good. David Archuleta sang 4 songs. I have always thought that he is a great singer, but I've never been way impressed by him, maybe it's because he ALWAYS sings ballads and thats not what I'm into, but he was very good last night!! I was very impressed with him. And of course, the crowd went crazy for him.
Then finally, my man came out. Have I mentioned that I LOVE David Cook??? He was absolutely amazing! I couldn't even beleive it. He sang 5 songs, including "Billy Jean". He rocked! You would have never known that this was his first show. He so good!!!!! Can't wait until he makes his first album.


Yesterday I drove to Tuscon for another ultrasound. Everything went great, my doctor was very happy with the way everything is progressing. We saw the baby moving all around, with 2 legs and 2 arms. It was so exciting!! So yesterday I graduated from my infertility clinic, WooHoo. It is so strange, I have been driving to Tuscon, an hour and a half each way, consistently since my first appointment with them on November 12th. They were so excited for me, all telling me to send pictures after the baby is born.
