A Big Mileston and a Vacation

I've been reading tons of blogs with disclaimers about not posting much, especially this summer. You can add me to that category. And I'm sorry.

Anyways, we made it to 28 weeks with baby boy! Yesterday I had an appointment in Seattle at the University of Washington Hypertension Clinic and all looks well. A growth ultrasound showed baby is growing perfectly and is right on schedule and weighs approximately 2lbs. 8oz. Can you believe that Darsie, born at this gestation, weighed 1lb. 12oz.? Just shows what havoc high blood pressure and preeclampsia can cause on the unborn baby.

And we are headed out tomorrow on a vacation to the Oregon Dunes where my husband will ride quads with his college buddies and I will embroider, nap, and eat, in some order. The girls are headed to my parents for a few days of being 100% spoiled and catered, too. I think we will all enjoy our vacation.

Hope all is well with everyone!

We've Fallen Victime...

to a horrendous stomach bug of some nature. We went to a local lake to go swimming and next thing we know, we've all had a stomach bug and at least 30 other people who also went swimming at the same lake around the same time also have the same issues. Good times. We are slowly recovering but getting our appetites back has taken the longest. Poor Jeff has lost about 12 pounds.

And just a couple of photos to tide you over.
Our big project for this summer is building this shop.

And of course, the little ladies. Aren't they sweet when sleeping?
