Day At The Museum

A few months back we got a really good deal through LivingSocial.com for passes to a new local Children's Museum.  I hadn't heard great things about this place... but I figured for a family of 5 to get in for $7, it was worth the risk. 

We had a really fun time.  Since Daddy had to work, Aunt Ruthy came with to get in on the fun;)  All the things I had heard about the place were true though.  It was small.  It didn't have too many activities.  And it is expensive (if you are paying full price obviously). 
However, it was a fun activity to get the kids out of the house on a rainy day.  Luckily it wasn't very busy and the kids played at each center a few times so we were there for a while. 

Ok, now for the photo explosion!






















Like I said, the kids had a blast.  But when I reminded them of the other Children's Museum that we have gone to before, they said they would much rather go there.  So I am thinking another museum trip is in store for us soon:)

My Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday!
We started the day off by going out to breakfast.  Then headed to a local farm to pick out and cut our Christmas tree.  The kids have been so excited to get a tree, yet when we got there they seem to want to fight more then focus.  Despite the bickering we all had fun and ended up all agreeing on a tree.


Exploring


Baby C found a "his size" tree


Cutting it down


Trying to get a picture of the three... pretty much impossible these days!


Off we went.

We then headed home to set up the tree.  After getting it in the stand and watered, Daddy and the older kids wanted to go outside to play.  Fine by me... Baby C and I napped:)

Usually on any occasion (b-day, Christmas, anniversary, ect) I don't expect much in gift form.  Mainly because if I want something I typically go buy it, but also because I like spending money on our house/property instead of myself!  But Daddy surprised me in the morning with a few small gifts... and then in the afternoon with a big one!  He took me (and everyone else) shopping for a new camera. 


I love my new camera:)  I feel slightly bad, because I have been neglecting my kids today while I play with it... oh well.

We finished the night up with a little Cold Stone Creamery.  Yum! 

There were a million other little moments that made this day awesome also.  It was truly the best birthday I have had in a long time!

BTW... It was my 25th!

Do you hear what I hear??

video

Yup, that's right.  A heartbeat!  A very distant, yet strong and steady heartbeat.
We are having another baby!!!!

I am a little over 10 weeks pregnant.  We had our first midwife appointment on Monday and after a little searching we finally heard that sweet sound:)




So while I have my 12 month old on my hip, I am growing another in my belly.
I swore I would never have kids that close together again, but God has other plans for us!

Words cannot express how much I love these kids!
