Visit in Savannah

We went to visit Katie, Robbie and Macie (who we've always called Josslynn...but since everyone else calls her Macie, we figured we better start too!) in Savannah and had a great weekend! We walked around River St, watched the ships coming in & out and enjoyed our time with family.

First there was Poppy...Now there is Sesame!

We're expecting baby #2 on December 27, 2010! When we found out we were pregnant with Jensen, he was the size of a poppy seed so we named him Poppy throughout the pregnancy. When we learned of this pregnancy, it was the size of a sesame seed so we've decided to continue with the theme and call this one Sesame!
We're 18 weeks pregnant and doing really well! Unlike the first time, we're going to find out the gender of this baby. We have our 20 week ultrasound next week, but we have been taking a few sneak peaks at the little one with our neighbor (He's an ultrasound tech with his own personal equipment at home....how lucky are we?)!!

Jensen is going to be a big brother

The day we got the big news - April 27, 2010


We shared the news with Grandma & Grandpa Swanee in NYC in May

Road trip out west!

We've been a little busy this past month and I've been terrible updating the blog.

Here are some pictures from our road trip out west. We packed up Jensen and Bailey, put on our new car top carrier and headed to Denver by way of St. Louis and KC! We had great visits with friends along the way, entertained Jensen with his They Might Be Giants DVD and ate at McDonald's way too many times. We spent a few days in Denver and rented a house in Grand Lake for 4 days where we spent time hiking, walking around the little town, hanging out in our house, watching moose, eating great food and of course the guys went fishing everyday!

We had the BEST time and both Jensen & Bailey did really well for a total of about 45 hours in the car. Believe it or not, we'd do it again!

Jensen was practicing his walking skills at Jon & Cathy's house in Boulder

Peek-a-boo from the loft in Grand Lake. Jensen could have played this game all day!

A beautiful backdrop for breakfast every morning

Reunion of "A Little Wisdom on the Side of the Road"...Well, kind of!

A little beach time with Aunt Molly in Grand Lake

Jensen had a long day at the beach:)

Our entertainment for the week!
He had us all cracking up on the 4th of July when he decided to turn on
more "patriotic" music....and then turned it up and up!

A little stretch & play break in Goodland, CO...Almost there!

Getting Jensen strapped in to his carseat in our driveway on day #1.
We thought we were really in trouble if the whole trip was like this!
Thankfully it got much better!

Our 4 mile hike lead us to this river.
We enjoyed sitting by the water and the dogs couldn't get in enough playtime!

Jensen's first steps on a hike

Our first night in Grand Lake - Pizza for dinner with Grandma & Grandpa Swanee.
According to Jensen, "Mmmmmm!"

All Aboard!

These pictures are from the beginning of June, but I forgot to post them. Our neighborhood friends asked us to join them on their boat on Lake Alatoona! We had such a fun morning watching the boys go tubing, going fast and swimming. It was so refreshing!

This was Elle's first boat ride and she's still talking about watching the boys go tubing and eating veggie chips! Jensen loved it as well!
