I just wanted to give a quick update about what has been going on in our lives. Ace is still getting bigger and bigger, he had to get fixed a couple of weeks ago but is finally getting back to his normal crazy self. Lance started school again, his last year of graduate school. Yeah!! Almost done with his masters, I'm so proud of him! Hopefully this year goes by fast, and it already is so I'm sure it will be over before we know it. He is still working part time at the hospital, and is learning lots about how to run a hospital. I am now 16 weeks along, and finally starting to show a little. My stomach is still not a cute round preggo belly, it still just looks like its getting fat. But I can tell a huge difference in my body, and I think I've only gained around 5 pounds total so most people still can't even tell. This week my sickness is finally getting a little better, and I am sooo happy about it. I still get nauseas from time to time, but it is no where near what it was. It got so bad, I actually had to go to the ER and see my Dr like a million times. I get my ultrasound next month, and we're getting pretty excited about it. Sometimes it still doesn't seem real, so we haven't really started preparing or buying anything, but I know it's gonna be here so fast.  Maybe once we find out what it is it will be easier to actually imagine having a baby and we will be better at getting ready. Oh well, I guess we'll see :)

Creeper Trail

We have decided that we needed a new hobby. So last week we went out and bought some new bikes. Its actually been so fun just riding all over. And parking at at school is so much easier with a bike instead of a car.  But we love our new bikes.

We always hear that there is so much stuff to do outside around here, so on Saturday we went and checked out the Creeper Trail, in Damacus Virginia. It took about an hour to get there, but it was well worth the drive. It up in the mountains, so it was just beautiful. It is about a 40 mile round trip bike ride, but we took the cheater (and more popular) version and took a shuttle up the mountain and just rode the 20 miles back down.
It was a really easy ride, basically all down hill. I think I only had to pedal like 6 times all 20 miles.

Also, our good friends from BYU, Jeff and Lynn, moved here a couple of weeks ago. Jeff is going to grad school out here with Lance. But they live right next door to us, so it's been fun hanging out with them a lot and exploring our hometown together. So they also went on the trail with us. It was a great time had by all.
