I am now 27 weeks pregnant, and starting my 3rd trimester. YEA!! This pregnancy has actually gone by really quick, probably because I have such busy months to fill my time. August should go by really fast with 2 birthday's, 4 doctor's visits, Matthew starting Kindergarten. The one thing that I am kind of bummed about, is that I have Placenta Previa. We found out at our 20th week ultrasound. Mine is fully covered witch really stinks. The baby is doing fine and is healthy, but My Doctors don't want me to travel very far from a hospital, because at anytime it is possible to start bleeding. Jeff went to Utah last weekend for his brothers wedding, and I was supposed to go and stay there this whole week. Then on the 2nd of August we were going to head up to Montana for a reunion with my Dad's side of the family. I was looking so forward to my 2 week vacation, but what can you do. We had another ultrasound on the 23rd, hoping it has moved some, but it hasn't. So, at this point they said it probably won't move enough to matter at this point, but you never know. So for now, I have to plan on having a C- section which I am NOT happy about at all. I am going to go see the perientoligist(not sure how you spell that) at the end of the month for another ultra sound, so maybe just maybe, it will be some good news. If any of you have ever had this before, I would love to hear what happened to you, or if you made it to full term etc...
On July 19th -24th my mom and Steve came to visit. We had such a fun time. On Saturday, we all headed up to Water World one of the funnest water parks I have been to, on Sunday we went for a BBQ up in the mountains and enjoyed the cooler weather, on Monday we took a trip to the zoo, and swam in the backyard when got home, on Tuesday, we hit the mall for some "relaxing" fun, raided the Disney Store ate Lunch at the Food court, and of course had to visit the Candy store after Lunch, then later that night we went to the Rockies Game without the kids. On Wednesday, we just took Ashlie to Gymnastics, and relaxed a little, and I can't really remember what we did later that day. Sorry I don't have more pictures, I just didn't bring my camera. We had a wonderful visit though, and it was sad to see them go. Brandon really enjoyed their visit this time, and is really starting to be more social with them. The kids really enjoyed getting a ride up the street on Grandpa's motorcycle. They thought it was really fun.
On Saturday the 5th of July, we celebrated grandpas 90th birthday. It was fun to have everyone in town. Most family we have not seen for at least 3 years. For dinner we had grandpas favorite food witch is Mexican, so we had tamales, enchilada's, rice, chips and homemade salsa, it was really really good. Jeff's sister Emily made this awesome cake, this is what grandpa flew in the war.
For our 4th of July, we went up to Manitu Lake, and went fishing ,had a barbeque, and played all day. A lot of Jeff's family came into town for the weekend from all over the states, because it was his grandpa's 90th birthday. After the lake, we went back and relaxed a little and then headed up to the Air Force base for some fireworks. It was a fun and tiring day.
Jeff and I were married on June 16th, 2001 in the Salt Lake City Temple. We met at BYU during Jeff's last year of undergrad. I am a busy mom of 5 wonderful children who are very busy themselves. M is 11, A is 10, B is 8, K is 6 and L is 18 months . They are all doing well. We enjoy camping, rock climbing, running, canyoneering, and our new found sport of family bowling. We hope to have a fun and eventful year.
