Pioneer Day 2010

I had a marvelous Pioneer Day this year. With Brigham's family we went to the Red Butte Gardens. It was fun to walk through with family. I became the navigator after finding that those leading with the maps, didn't know how to read maps. So, I snatched one and took charge. I'm good at taking charge. It was a nice walk, as long as it was shaded. It was sort of a bad decision to walk outside around noon, in the middle of July in Utah. But hey, we survived, and enjoyed ourselves. Here's a picture of the fragance garden.
Lydia really enjoyed herself and didn't get sunburned one bit. I tell you what, it's hard to put sun screen on a one-year old that doesn't want to wear sunscreen. When I told my mom of the trouble I had getting it on Lydia she said, "Why don't you buy the spray on sun-screen?" Brilliant idea! Why are moms so smart?
We were taking a shade break.
We also went to Murray Park and had a picnic, waded in the creek, played, and talked. It was nice to relax. Lydia had a blast! She ran around like crazy. This is with her little skirt flipped up on accident. She looked so silly running around that way :) She was too busy having fun to care.
We also went to Moochies for sandwiches, then to Tim and Ashley's for games and root-beer floats. I was exhausted but made it through the entire day! It may have taken me three days to recover but it was worth it :)
Thanks for the fun times everyone!

Yes it's true . . .

What was one, will now be two!!!
Yep, Brigham and I are expecting our next baby. :) It was a little harder getting this one and the timing was totally up to Heavenly Father so I'm so glad we have this little pumpkin on the way. These are the ultrasound pictures at 12 weeks. My favorite is the last one because you can really see the little monkey face. He (yes I think it's going to be a boy) was looking right at us when we first started the ultrasound and then it was if he got embarrassed, because he started kicking his little dinosaur looking arms and legs and rolled over to get away. :) It was so funny and I couldn't stop laughing. It's amazing how much I love that little jelly-bean all ready. 
It's going to be fun to see how little Lydia does with a younger sibling. I was holding her cousin in church the other day and the second Lydia noticed, she climbed over four people to get back to me. She was SO jealous. I'm sure she'll grow out of it (what choice does she have?) and she'll be an awesome older sister. Come January 8ish we'll find out. 
Well, that's our exciting news. It's hard to believe, but I've been even sicker this time than I was with Lydia. I've actually lost ten pounds I've been so sick. But hey, that means at twelve weeks pregnant, I finally lost all my baby weight from Lydia. Ironic :) Hopefully I can regain humancy soon and be able to function properly. I want to truly be able to be excited for this next child to entire our little family.
