Life is Good: Day 40 (Independence Day)

Happy Independence Day! We had a great one. We woke up early this morning for the traditional town fireman's breakfast. They usually wake us up with sirens. But not this year, that was a disappointment. But the breakfast and company was nice. I even walked to the park. It felt good for my phyci to be walking. But it wasn't the best idea. Oh Well!

We enjoyed the town parade shortly after breakfast. Always a short and sweet thing. The kids love the candy and the spray from the fire trucks.

Heather and her girls packed up and headed out soon after the parade. We were all really sad to see them go. We had a great time together and hope maybe they can come back sooner then later. We'll see...

Jakob woke up very grumpy this morning. He was ready for a nap before noon. We all were. So we enjoyed a long afternoon snooze. Unfortunately, Jakob woke up sick. We gave him medicine and thought he would be fine to go the the fireworks this evening. He seemed fine throughout the afternoon as we watched a few movies. But we were wrong. He threw up in the car (luckily in a bag) on the way to the fireworks. Thank Heavens grandma was there to help us along the way. We let Jakob decide whether to still go the fireworks or not. He chose to go. So we did and he rested on a blanket. The show was awesome. We had to sit and wait a long time, so it was nice that the fireworks lasted a long time. Caleb had a great time twirling the light sticks grandma had bought for the boys. He was very cute and happy the whole time. He just hummed and babbled to himself the whole time and on the way home. Jakob on the other hand threw up again as we drove home. So that was a bummer. Looks like we wore him completely out with all the fun this past week. Hopefully it will pass soon!

So, there it is, another small town Independence Day Celebration come and gone with some Good times and Good memories.

Life is Good: Day 41 (by hubbie)

Just helping out the wife a little with the blog. She's feeling quite pregnant for some reason...

Heaton Ranch Review:

We had a great time.

Home Review:

It's still standing.

Thanks for reading...boy this blogging stuff is easy.....

Just kidding.

Let me try that again.

Heaton ranch was a blast. First day we started things off with a huge dinner. Lena and I were a bit late because of the 3 hour doctor visit but we still had plenty of time to enjoy ourselves. We prepared to feed an army. After our large dinner we swore we won't eat so much and then indulged in dutch oven cobbler. Bed time came we our little family found ourselves sleeping in the chicken room, a room decorated with different kinds of chicken wall paper and pictures.

The next day Lena and Heather were able to just sit and do their crafts most the day. It was fun watching them and I was glad Lena was able to do a bit of relaxing. The main reasons she couldn't relax the whole time was the playing in the pond. Jakob and I started the day with a walk around the pond then taking one of the boats out in the middle. We ended up playing water games for a while. We also went on a long or I should say high hike. Grandma and I lead most the kids including Caleb up to the top of the hill. That night we over ate again and then played night games. The kids loved our version of "Murder in the dark" we called "Snoop in the dark". The neatest part of the game was when we discovered "lightning bugs"flying around the stream and the ponds.

Next day was clean up then get dirty again day.

We spent the morning packing and cleaning up the ranch. We then drove to the local sand dunes and got completely sandy before the sun came out and started cooking our feet. After enjoying a scenic route home thanks to my mis-navigation we finally made it home.

At home we've relaxed and cleaned. The kids help clean the bathroom floor by flooding it pretty good. Heather went to the local national park. I was happy because I was able to sell some of our coronation sussex and buy a new egg turner for the incubator so I don't have to turn them 3 times a day.

Well thats about it. Tell next time...or until Lena comes and edits this!

Life is Good: Day 43

We're back from a little trip to Heaton Ranch. What a wonderful time we had!!! I can't say I was any help, or much fun. But I can say how grateful for the help that I was given and the fun that I had! My sister, Leif, and Grandma Baron were absolute life savers! I felt bad for not being able to help.

I will spend time tomorrow with details of the ranch. But I figure a little update with the pregnancy would be good. I had to go to the hospital again right before we left to the ranch. I guess I'm experiencing official pre-term labor. It's a bummer! I just have to sit around a lot and hope that I'll not progress for several more weeks. There's not too much more to say. On second thought, I guess there is one more thing. I am SO Grateful for this:
