Riding the River

Since it was such a beautiful day yesterday, we decided to load up the boat and take it to the St Mary's River for the day. We stopped in town first because our church was selling chicken dinners and we decided that was the perfect picnic food for the day. It was yummy. We had a great time relaxing and soaking up some sun. I actually got some sun on the belly. We only stayed about 2 hours, it was getting crazy out there. Lots of people who don't know how to drive boats and who have absolutely no sense. We left unharmed though and had a great day. Here are just a few pics of us and our beautiful day on the river.

It was a little too bright for Sidney so I had to lend her my shades. :)
Me and my love.

Our own personal boat driver....he did such a good job.

Easter Weekend....

We had an absolutely wonderful Easter weekend. Saturday, my closest girlfriends took me out to the Alhambra for my birthday to watch the show, "Footloose" I have always loved the movie so I knew I would enjoy the show. I wished I would have snapped some pics but I didn't. I seriously gotta get better at this bloggin/picture taking thing.

Sunday we were up and at em' early. We had to be at church for Sunrise Service at 8:30 and because I also wanted breaskfast which was served shortly after. It was yummy.....the sausage was a bit disturbing but tasted great as long as you didn't really look at it...a whole lot. After breaskfast the kiddo's had a quick Egg hunt and William I think had just about every egg in his basket. We then went to Sunday School and off to church. After church we headed home because we were hosting Easter at our house. I made all kinds of side dishes and my mother in law baked the ham. Everything turned out wonderful. We hid more eggs and everyone took turn finding them. It was also my birthday that day and my mother in law got me some great gifts for me to take to the hospital when the baby gets here. I can always count on her to think of things I might need in the future. Now of course I didn't take any pics of the people that were here....I know, I know, I'm a dum-dum but I did manage to snap a few after everyone left.

It was a great Easter, we couldn't have asked for a better day to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ with our family and friends. I hope next year brings just as many great and wonderful memories. Have a great week.

Rain,'re a pain in my butt!!

In my last post I said I would have pics of our Sunday School Party...well it was cancelled. Our driveway was under water and so was our back yard. Now if it was a swimming party or a mud wrestling party, we could have accomodated everyone.
So these past few days, when it wasn't raining, was spent outside, digging ditches, trying to save the garden, purging water out of the flower beds and trying to keep the house clean from messy, muddy husband, child and dog. Its been a rough week. Hopefully the rain will ease up becasue everything is still so soggy. I appreciate the rain but last week was way too much.
Thankfully, our house is built up enough that no rain came near the house.
This is the front yard, I planted all my wildflowers on the left side...I'm not sure there gonna make it.

Our seriously need 4 wheel drive to go down it. Its not as fun as you would think.

This is a picture of the backyard and garden, luckily it was built up higher too or my veggies would be ruined....although, my cabbage isn't looking to happy these days.

But the rain does make for pretty flowers.......something good has to come out of all this.

Well I hope you enjoyed my pics and the hardwork that has gone into keeping our heads above water. I hope everyone has a great rest of the week.

6 Month Doctor Appt....

We had our 6 month checkup today and our little bundle of joy is doing great. Sassy and stronger than ever. Her heartbeat is a loud 145 bpm, she is absolutely happy and healthy.

I also had my glucose test thingy today....I failed. So I gotta go back to the 3 hour test sometime next week, not looking forward to that, becuase that junk tast like crap. I thought I was gonna puke. I know that I'm fine and I know that I don't have gestational diabetes but better safe than sorry.

Other than the Dr. appt and all this rain, not much else is going on. We are hosting our Sunday School party here on Saturday night so I will def have pics of that night, with more stuff to talk about.

So there's my update, nothing fancy, just the facts. Have a great week.....try and stay dry!
