Memorial Day in Monterey

Last weekend we went to Monterey for Memorial Day. We drove over Sat. afternoon and were greeted with cloudy, cold, coastal weather. It was a nice break from the Fresno heat! Sunday we headed out to Cannery Row for lunch at Archies and a stroll through Monterey. The town was busy since it was a holiday weekend. Sunday night the family came over and we had a Bar B Q. It was nice to relax and hang out. On Monday we drove over to Moss Landing for lunch at Phil's Fish Market and a quick trek out to the beach. After that we headed home.

Praise Baby

Cooper was sitting so quiet in the living room watching his Praise Baby dvd so I peaked around the corner to check on him and this is what I saw... He had climbed up on the ottoman and was sitting so cute watching his video.

Backyard Garden

One of our April projects was getting the backyard ready for Spring and Summer. We cleaned and moved furniture around so now it's our little oasis. We have grand plans for new trees, flowers, new grass, etc ..... but that will have to wait for next spring. For now it's been the perfect place to spend the mornings letting Coop play or for eating our dinner by candle light after he's gone to bed. I planted some veggies in small pots and Coop loves to carry around my watering can, it's so cute!

Baby #2 Update #2

We went to the Dr. today and everything looks good! The baby is about 4-5" now and was moving around. We got to see it's face and hands and spine. The ultra sound pics aren't very clear so I'll wait until the next appointment to scan upload one. Coop went with us and got to see his baby sibling too!

Easter 2009

So we got all ready for church on Easter morning, I went to load Coop into the car and his nose was dripping with snot. I couldn't leave him in the daycare like that... so we didn't get to go to church. Since we were up and ready to go we drove over to Starbuck's and took a little drive to the country until it was Coop's nap time. This year Coop was a little more excited about his Easter basket. We went out to Kerman to see some family and hunt for Easter eggs. He liked to shake the ones with money in them. I think next year he'll really be into finding the eggs!

Baby #2 Update #1

So I am finally over the 1st Trimester "yuckies" @ 13 weeks. I wasn't nearly as nauseous this time around but was suffering from really bad stomach aches for about 5 weeks. I'm feeling a little more normal these days. I've been able to take Coop for some walks during the week so we can both get outside and I'm not quite such a dead beat mom in the mornings. We go to the Dr. this Thurs. and I'll have another ultrasound pic I can post. It will be a little more interesting than the 1st one. There is definitely just 1 baby in there and we're still 2 months away from finding out the gender. I'm looking a little bloated and I'm remembering this next month or two is just when I feel fat and not like a cute little pregnant lady!
