I was finally able to meet the newest addition to our family, Kacies little baby Cade. This weekend I flew across the country, which turns out to take forever, to Seattle and spent the weekend with Kacie, Adam and Cade.  And it was actually really great because my parents were visiting too, so we got to spend some time with them also. It was really fun to have Kacie show us where they have been living for the past year, and gosh how I've missed being in a big city with a real mall to shop in. 

And Cade is just adorable. He is such a good baby, sleeps alot, but he's super cute and Kacie is already such a great mom. It makes me nervous to have a kid, but a little excited too. We tried to go baby shopping, but its really annoying when you don't know if it's a boy or girl and all the clothes are blue or pink. I guess our baby will have to just be nude for the first few days till we can actually go out and buy some clothes for it. 

Corn Maze

We had the opportunity to go with our young men and young women to the corn maze for our activity the other night. I'll be honest, I've always wanted to go to one of these. And the whole time at BYU  we always talked about it but never actually made it to one of these. So I was pretty excited to go and check it out. I don't know, maybe it was watching field of dreams too many times, or maybe it was signs. I don't know why, but it's always seemed so exciting to walk around in fields of huge corn, I know...wierd! It was pretty fun, but I was a little disappointed with the whole thing. I mean, it was really cold, and turns out we're really bad at mazes and it took us forever. But I'm really glad I finally got to experience the thrill of being in a corn maze.

So here are some pictures from the exciting evening. Oh and my little brother Tate has finally come back to America and is staying with us for a little while. It's really fun to have him around, hopefully he feels the same about us :)

I told you...

I told everyone that my stomach is growing at a very quick pace, here is a 22 week belly shots. I starting to grow rather uncomfortable, which really stinks because I know I have a long way to go with this. But I'm hanging in there.

pregnancy week by week

It's A....

HaHa...fooled ya. I'm so mad. We went for my ultrasound the other day. It went really good, all the body parts  (arms, legs, hands, feet, brain, kidneys...etc.) were there so we are very grateful that our baby is growing healthy. However, the sex of our baby is yet to be determined. Our little one seems to be a bit shy and decided to keep its little legs crossed the whole time so we couldn't see much. The tech guessed that its a girl, but just couldn't be 100% sure. So I guess we're still at square one, it's either a boy or a girl :) thanks a lot! I'm still not getting too big, but I have grown some so I will put up some more pictures soon.

Otherwise, all is well with us. The fall here is the best because the leaves are so pretty when they change. And we are excited for the weather to cool off a little bit. Lance is doing good in school/work and everything else as always. I am finishing up our fall softball season, we look pretty good but still have a lot of work to do before our spring season. I'll put up more pictures soon, stay posted :) and to all my old friends that are lucky enough to go to the BYU alumni game this weekend say Hi for me and send my love to everyone. I miss you all so much!!!

Belly Shot

I have finally got the courage to take pictures of my stomach, which by the way is getting fatter everyday. I would like to remember all the stages that my stomach will go through, but I have to admit I feel like an idiot trying to take pictures of myself in the bathroom mirror. But here I am at 19 weeks officially.
I am feeling much better, and usually only feel sick now in the mornings and then most days it goes away.  But the most exciting news is that my ultrasound is scheduled for next Monday. We're pretty excited about it, well I am anyways. Lance wants to be surprised, but I know that won't last once we get there. And I don't really have a clue what it is, I've had a dream it's a girl but I've also had a dream it's a boy. So I guess only time will tell.

In other news, well not too much else has been going on. A couple of weeks ago we went to some dragon boat races at one of the big parks here. A bunch of local businesses were racing boats to raise money for the Children's Network. We went and checked it out, it was pretty neat to see but it was super hot that day so we didn't really stay and watch all that long. But we were there long enough for Ace to jump in the lake and try swimming. Turns out he's pretty wimpy, but it was funny to watch.
