A beautiful day

This is from a few days ago. We drove up to Garvin Heights - it has been years since we were up there last - to see the sights. The mosquitos were so bad that we had to make it a fast visit, but it was a beautiful night.

Our New Addition

We decided to take the plunge and trade in the Camry for a new Sienna. We like it a lot and think it will be great for handling two kids!! We took her on a drive tonight to show her the sights!

Recovering From the Weekend

We had a busy weekend that started with a little shower with some of my girlfriends. It was nice to get together and chat a bit, eat some yummy food and watch Ava and her little friend play together. Kevin was busy at home working on finishing the trim for Ava's new room and completing some other items on the "honey do" list!

Ava's hair is coming in more and more every week. Recently she brought me the tiny barrettes that I bought her - she wanted nothing to do with them before that. She was watching me pull my hair back with a couple and must have thought that it was a good idea. She even posed for me so I could take a picture of her with them in!

Only three weeks until we get to meet our new addition!

A Busy Summer

Somehow we have managed to have found ourselves so busy that the blog has not been updated in almost a month. I apologize to those to check it from time to time - I really don't have a good excuse!

We are four weeks from meeting our little Ella; we are very excited. And I am not yet feeling prepared. I haven't packed our bags, but have made lists of what to pack for everyone.

Here are some pictures from the last month. We went up to the cities a couple of weeks ago and stayed with Melissa and Jeff in their new home. We visited Underwater World at the Mall of America and the MN Zoo. It was a nice weekend. Melissa and Jeff were so thoughtful and we were so relaxed those couple of days. (Thanks Again!!)
