Nothing to Share

Or so it feels. My mom has bugged me a few times that I don't update my blog enough, but really, these are the only pictures I've taken in the last month, and there's not much to them. I don't have any funny stories or crazy happenings, so this is what you get!
The kids found the goggles, and now they live in the toy basket. (The goggles, not the kids.)
Logan and Lizzy have a bad habit of taking the gas cap off the lawn mower and filling the tank up with grass, mulch, water, and other things. Despite the multiple beatings they receive, they keep doing it, so this is a picture of one of the many times James has had to fix the lawn mower. I thought it was a cute picture because Logan's got the tools in his hands too and thinks he is actually being helpful.
We had friends over for dinner and games a week ago. I made the mistake of leaving the games out overnight. The next morning, while I was taking my shower, this is what ensued. Rumikub tiles, a deck of Skip-Bo cards, and a deck of regular playing cards, all over the floor!
Lizzy has started this new thing where she "falls" off the bottom stair. As I was putting the blog post together Logan started jumping down the stairs and it occurred to me that Lizzy is probably just imitating him, but she's not coordinated enough to jump yet.

Lastly, I have to include this video because it sums up why I love James. He's a goof. I'm a little more serious, so he brings good balance to my life. He's embarrassed about this video, though I can't figure out why!

I have one more video to share, but I'll save it for another post. :)

Feeling Tired

...because, if you'll notice my new widget, I'm pregnant! James and I are excited to welcome baby number 3 in our home some time around March 6th. For those of you trying to do the math, that means I'm a little over 8 weeks along. Did you know that your chances of miscarriage decrease to only 5% when you're 8 weeks, and down to 1% when at 12 weeks? That's exciting!

Anyway, my morning sickness has been practically non-existent, which is GREAT and unexpected, but I have been feeling the fatigue that usually accompanies pregnancy.

We originally decided that we would keep the sex of this baby a surprise, however, that has gone out the window. James so badly wants a boy, but I'm 99% sure that we have a girl on the way. For James' sake, I hope I am wrong. Anyway, now we have to find out what we're having as soon as possible. Every week James asks me how much longer until we can get that ultra-sound. Silly boy.

Well, that's the end of our exciting news. Hope you enjoyed it!

4th of July Weekend

We spent our 4th of July weekend in Rupert, Idaho, where James grew up. These were the kind of fireworks we enjoyed, the illegal kind.
Logan sat snuggled up with his Grandma Idaho the whole time.
The rest of the pictures highlight some of Logan's favorite activities, while visiting the farm, where James grew up. Here, Logan is eagerly climbing into the tractor.

The kids are prepared for a fun ride.
Lizzy liked riding the motorcycle.
Logan really liked the four wheeler, and in this picture he is riding with his cousin Morgan.
James was shocked when I told him I had never driven a tractor before. I've spent many hours riding in one with him while he drove them, but I never did any actual driving. James quickly remedied that problem. So, if you can't tell, that's me driving it.
This was Logan's turn on the motorcycle. He wasn't so thrilled with it.
It was hard to reach the handle bars with both kids in front of me, but the kids had fun.
And this last picture pretty much highlights our drive home.
We had a lot of fun. I didn't even get any pictures from when we went on the boat and went tubing. That was A LOT of fun! We'll be going back in August, so maybe I'll remember to take pictures, while on the boat, next time.
