Some things that have been good to me are:

Coke Slurpees & Shaved Ice
Popsicles/Otter Pops
Lipton Soup
Instant breakfast
Baked potatoes
Lots of water

all because, yep you guessed it....we're pregnant! We are so thrilled! Right now I am just over 13 weeks. We've seen the little munchkin twice and just heard the heartbeat today, which is always a sigh of relief for me. I haven't been near as sick this pregnancy, but I still have had my days. I feel the worst in the morning time, but mostly I've just felt exhausted. However, I'm slowly starting to get some energy back.

It took a little longer than expected this time around! After one miscarriage, 14 months and 3 rounds of clomid it happened. I know 14 months is nothing compared to some, but it felt like a long time for me. We feel very blessed and are so thankful.

Alli seems to be excited, although I don't think she fully understands what's to come quite yet. She says she wants a "girl baby," Josh wants a boy, and I just want a healthy baby.

I have no doubt that Alli will be a fantastic big sister, however the first part might be rough, but I guess we shall see!

Anyway, Baby #2 is expected to make it's arrival on New Year's Day! Do you think it's a boy or a girl??!

Giddy Up Cowgirl!

We went to the Lehi Round Up Rodeo on Friday night.This has become a tradition at our house- Alli looks forward to it each year! She was so excited to get her cowgirl boots on and go watch the horses. Although the bull riding wasn't too exciting this year, it was still fun. Here she is modeling her boots that she picked out herself and it SO proud of =)
Tis' the season of Rodeos, Carnivals & Parades..Love it!

Strawberry Days Carnival

 Addi, Hally, & Alli on the Ferris try saying that 5 times!

 She loves this ride, definitely a favorite.

We had a good time at the Carnival!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to the best husband and Daddy out there.
We love you! For his day, he picked out Sunday dinner which was steaks, potatoes, & raspberry jello w/home made whip cream. Hope you had a great day!

Wow, I feel like I've been MIA from my blog! I've been so lazy lately, but I am ready to get blogging again. Alli has been so fun, she is so very outgoing! She is so fun to watch these days. Josh is loving his job and has been doing great. I'm happy that he's happy! Also, he started going to Velocity training, which is a work out that he does 3 times a week during his lunch break and playing softball once a week. I've been doing good too, just working and being lazy at the same time! Life is good. We're glad that it's finally warm around here and excited for summer time so we can get out and do stuff!
I just want to document a few things about Alli before I forget. I have the worst memory of all time, so I love to write these things down.

* She is not afraid to make friends AT ALL! I love this about her, she is super outgoing.
* She often says, are we going to the store (or wherever we're going) yes or no?
* Talks to herself and has conversations with herself in the bath. It's pretty funny, I'll have to post a video sometime. She has all sorts of stories and friends she talks about with her Barbies.
* She calls balloons "Cabloons"
* She is super excited for the rodeo, 4th of July and fireworks, camping, all things that she knows are coming up soon.
*She loves the Taylor Swift song "Mine" and tells us to turn it up!
*Loves chocolate pudding 
*Loves Parties! She already has her birthday party all planned out from the type of cake, to the friends she wants to invite and she says she want to invite her primary teachers, she loves them and talks about them a lot!
Ask tons of WHY? questions! Sometimes it gets old but I do my best to answer them.

She is quite the little lady. I think three is definitely a good age. It's so easy (for the most part) and so fun!

Cowabunga & Clint Black

Last weekend we met up with Josh's sister and her kids to go to Cowabunga Bay. Alli attempted to go down the slide, but never actually went down. She did love the kiddie pool though and that's where she spent the majority of her time. I think we'll just stick with the city pools this summer since she's not really into slides quite yet. She still had fun though, and she LOVED seeing her cousins Parker and Zach =)

Later that evening Josh and I went to Clint Black out at the Eagle Mountain Ampitheatre. It was super fun but freezing! Clint is getting old, but he still sounded great. 

It was a really busy, fun weekend!
