Well, time has flown by SO fast; I cannot believe this Thursday I will have exactly eight weeks left till I am due. It is too crazy how time flies. Austin is very excited to have his new baby brother so he can teach him how to play hockey. Every night when he says his prayer he prays for his hockey brother, it is too cute. I am glad he is very excited to be a big brother.
I am feeling pretty good though, but I am starting to feel bigger every day. I just went through the 5 million baby items we have and sorted through them. That was a task, but I am glad I am doing it now rather than later. Well, just wants to keep you guys updated!

Happy Father's Day!

Father’s Day was fun. Austin and I let Chris sleep in (shhh, he missed his Sunday morning meetings). Austin was sooo excited to make his Daddy breakfast. He made the mix for the blueberry pancakes all by himself (he washed the blueberries, controlled the mixer, etc.). He was so happy that he did that for his daddy. He also set the table for us to eat, I love how he has us all sitting SO close together. He couldn’t wait to wake up his daddy to eat.

The Greatest Show on Earth

Friday was my birthday, yes the big 26. As Katariina put it, I am more than a quarter century old. To celebrate we went to the Circus, not just any circus, the Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey Circus (just a side not, this is the only circus to go to).
Chris, Austin and I went with my mother and Kaarina, Chris’s mother and sister Lisa, her Husband Stephen and their 2 kids Emmalee and Dominic. We had so much fun! We were able to visit with the Circus performers before the show started. Austin wasn’t too sure about standing on the ball without daddy.
Austin loved the show! He says his favorite part was the Tigers. I think he really enjoyed his cotton candy.

The Durango Silverton Railroad

We went to Durango for Memorial Day weekend to visit Chris' sister and brother-in-law. We had a ton of fun. We left Thursday evening and got there around 1am. On Friday morning we took the Durango Silverton Railroad. We only went one way (3hours and 45minutes), because we knew that would be all Austin could handle, probably all I could handle. It was a fun ride, Chris had to keep a constant hold on Austin, because he always wanted to lean out the window in the car. Austin was awesome the whole ride, he fell asleep the last 2o minutes. That is pretty good for a 3.5 yr old. (well, my 3.5 yr old). It was a beautiful ride!
