Dancing and Camping

June has been in dance since we moved up here in January and she had her first dance recital on the 17th and 18th. She has loved it and dancing on the big stage in front of her family and friends was a thrill for her. Grandma, Grandpa, and Rose drove all the way up here just to see her, and both nights I was glowing with pride to see my little girl perform. She is a beauty and becoming a good dancer!

I turned 27 and I am now officially in my late twenties! I got to celebrate 3 days in a row and felt very spoiled. Here I am - 27 and 6 months pregnant.

Sean had some time off so we ventured out for our first camping trip. It was just a night stay, but it was a lot of fun. Sean and the kids fished, we went for a hike, and had tasty camp food. We are looking forward to going again.

Still Alive

Since my last post much has happened. Too much to blog about everything, but I will try to post some more about the important stuff. Here is a very quick update.

After a few rough months of early pregnancy I feel much better and I am happy to report that we are having another baby GIRL in late September/early October. I am enjoying our new house, yard, and a few new "toys" - this piano being one of them (don't worry, it is no longer blue:)

Sorry this picture is sideways, but this little beauty just turned 4. I love this girl with everything I'm made of. June loves to play with her new friends here - especially the neighbors, she is a great big sister and is looking forward to "Happy Cakes" arrival in the Fall, she is in dance and likes to wear her dance clothes, she is very independent, she is the boss, she hates to get her hair brushed, she is a Sunbeam and loves her class, she wears skirts everyday, she is sassy, she rides her bike fast, she still loves to snuggle with mom, and she loves to sing. She has been my joy since before she was born and my life is wonderful because of her.

I just love this picture of my two kids. They really are the best of friends and that makes me so happy. My Jack will be two next month and he is my sweet boy. He can say everything and anything and is so very smart. His little grin melts me and I am head over heels in love with him.

Sean is happy to be working up in the North and not in the hot desert. He is glad to be living in a house again and to have a big yard to take care of. He recently refinished the above blue piano for me, and it is beautiful. I love him and I am lucky to have such a hard working and talented husband. Here he is with his twin brother and our newest niece Vera on her blessing day.
