The last 8 weeks

Well we are about a month and a half away from welcoming our little gril to our family. We are all very excited to meet her and have her join us. The only problem I kinda become crazy at this point. I feel like I am constantly trying to feel her move and when I can't I get super nervous... Anyone else have these irrational fears?
Thankfully their is plenty to keep me busy, Christmas, holiday stuff, nesting like crazy!

So we anticipate the next 8 weeks to fly by...

So if you know my hubby you know he is a very conservative guy. He loves watching political things and is constantly watching debates commentary whatever...
Well tonight he was watching the republican debate and he likes mittens as we call him around here. Rye asked him why do you like him Dad? He explained why he liked him and said how neat it would be to have him in the white house.
Rye's reply,"Wouldn't it be cooler if a woman was the president?"
Ben was a little stumped to a reply to his daughter...

Three little bears

Made our annual trip to the state fair this week. It is fun for me for about an hour... The kids like the animals which is fun. We always make a trip to the big yellow slide making it the highlight of the night.
The fair is always a fun place to watch people and buy the most interesting things. I walk around thinking who buys this stuff... Strange home decor not to mention the hot tubs do people actually buy those?
That sounds kinda grumpy sorry... We had a good time and our 3 hours spent at the fair was well received with the kids. Until next year!

Not what fun is...

We brought the fam to lagoon today. Ben takes the older kid I get the younger and we split for awhile to do rides. Well mike did not want to ride anything alone today. He was not happy. I think he was a little scared to ride all alone. This was the picture I got from the first ride.
Thankfully Max came to the rescue and he decided he could ride anything with his big brother.

S'mores please...

Last Sunday we spent the night at the barn. The youth from

our church last year put in a fire pit for a service project. We finally broke it in and it was awesome. We had so much fun eating delicious harshmellows like mike calls them. We were even able to throw in a couple songs around the camp fire. It was a fun night.

Summer Getaways...

We are to lucky to have a fun place to go hang out with our families. This weekend we went up to the ranch to hang out. We always have a great time and the kids never want to leave. They can ride bikes endlessly. Since at home we live on a hill and it isn't as much fun. We usually have so much food it is ridiculous. Just a fun place to be. Since Ben had the day off on Monday we decided to go on a hike. We are not a hiking family but we thought it is time to start right? Well we headed up the road on the ranch and had a great time. After driving for about 20 minutes we got out and did our little hike. It turned into about 3 miles which is pretty far for some of the little legs in our family... Since at the bottom of the mountain on the way back up Mikey declared,"After tomorrow lets never come here again!" Poor guy was tired and most of the plants were as tall as him.
After we were heading home we saw this beauty bathing is a pond. He was so beautiful and we were able to watch him for about 5 minutes. Sure made the day every more memorable. Can't wait til our next adventure.
