Eldorado Park

Morgan's preschool class went to Eldorado Park as a field trip. Morgan and Eden walked the entire TWO MILE nature walk and never complained, although I was very happy to have the stroller for Kendall. We saw lots of animals, mostly turtles and ducks in the ponds, and a few squirrels and wild rabbits. Morgan was disappointed not to see any coyotes.

Morgan, Kendall, Ms. Jeanette and if you look way ahead you can see Eden leading the way.

Kendall's picture with the crane or egret or herring. Non of us moms knew. Anyone?

We went to Megan's 11th birthday party at the skating about a blast to the past! Scott and I had fun reminiscing of our own skating rink days, ah the memories. And in case you are wondering, nothing has changed. If the smell alone doesn't take you back then the kids who think they are sooooo cool will, and the old man who literally skates circles around everyone and skates backwards the entire time weaving in and out of people is still there!

Morgan and Kendall had a blast! I have to hand it to Scott, Aunt Kimmy and Aunt Kristy. They are the troopers who took them around and around saving them from falling too many times and giving them a great time instead of a night full of falls and bruises. By the end Morgan was pretty good in the rink, if she stayed close to the wall, and Kendall was able to go by herself around the benches on the carpet. They were so tired at the end of the night that I think Kendall summed it up best when she said, "Mom, I like to skate but I think I'm done."

Here I go!

Ever since Beth has started raving about how fun blogging is I have had it in the back of my mind to join her. Always with an excuse of why not start today. Well, after Tracy's announcement that she has started a blog (which is so cute I might add) I have decided to jump on the band wagon. Plus I cannot come up with an excuse right now since my house is clean, thanks to Maria, and I have temporarily fulfilled my nesting urges today by moving the furniture around and rearranging the dish cupboard. Well, I could do laundry but me having to start my blog is a great excuse to get out of that! (right Cherri?)

Anyway, this is today, 4/20/07, and these are my girls -- Morgan 4 1/2 and Kendall will be 3 in five days. We finally got some rain and Morgan, who absolutely loves to ride her bike, wouldn't let a little rain stop her. In fact, she was begging to have this new experiece. Plus they had some fun testing out their rain gear, splashing in whatever puddles they could find.

And this is me today (you would think one would put on some make-up before documenting herself on the world wide web). I am 34 weeks and 5 days, due May 28th. Scott and I are very happy to say it's a boy! Scott is thrilled, especially since he was caught quoting Sleeping Beauty the other day. Our little family ain't gonna be so little anymore...and we couldn't be more excited!
