It's been a long time... whoops! We've had a lot of fun adventures recently and some very exciting news as well. We are going to have a baby on July 12th! We are super excited and can't wait to meet our little "peanut". I personally can NOT wait to find out what the gender is. We won't find out until Feb 25th. Seems like it's too far away. We have a picture from the first ultrasound at 8 weeks, but it's been in the proud soon-to-be daddy's wallet for a while, so the picture isn't the best quality. We should have some better pictures (more recent) up soon. But, here is our little one at 8 weeks.
Also, we got to go to Alaska for the first time over Christmas Break! It was awesome to spend time with my family (who recently moved there) and to be in a new place. We got to go snowboarding, cross-country skiing (which was hilarious because none of us had ever gone before), ice skating, sledding, and other fun things Alaska has to offer. It was a blast. Here were some of the pictures we took while there.
This is a picture of a moose that was in the backyard. During the whole trip we were trying to see if we could see a moose, and one came to us! It was so huge; I couldn't believe it came so close to us.
Matt wanted me to take this picture for Scott to see. They have a special relationship and I'm sure Scott would think it's funny, and for the rest of you if you find it weird, just pretend you never saw it. In Matt's defense, it was a really weird statue thing.
Matt pretending to be a moose. Isn't he cute?
The family! This is after our second attempt at cross country skiing. Luckily the second time around some of us started kind of getting the hang of it, but most of us still had a few big wipe outs! It was great exercise though and a wonderful way to spend time together.
These are pictures of the beautiful view from my family's house. Alaska is a beautiful place, I just couldn't believe the amazing scenery.
