Father-Son Back Yard Camp Out

So Chase and Preston decided to have a little camp out in the back yard on Friday night. You may be wondering why I didn't join in. 1) I don't know why you would sleep on a camping pad when your king size mattress is mere feet away 2) If you don't know what number 2 is please see the belly photo below.

Anyway I think they had a lot of fun. Chase was soooooo excited while the tent was being set up. They were roughing it as they watched Peter Pan on my laptop until they fell asleep. I'm not sure Preston slept that great since he came in that morning and slept in another few hours on the couch...not like him at all.

Here are a few pics:

So just to let you know I went to take my weekly belly photo and Chase said "take my picture, take my picture." I said OK and picked up the camera and started to take one of him up close but he ran away from me and I was like, what the heck are you doing. He ran to the exact spot I had taken my own photo....and I got a good belly photo of him too. I was laughing so hard. What a copy cat.

Colorado & Other Stuff

Baby Watterson
Remember how I said that our friend did an ultrasound for us and was 99% sure that it was a girl? No?....did I fail to mention on here that we weren't 100% sure? Well we are now! I had an ultrasound today and it's a done deal. Ava it is! Now I'm giving myself the OK to go buy some pink stuff! I feel her move all the time now so that's really fun. :)
Here is a pic of her cute little profile:
I think Chase is really starting to get it. He talks about Ava a lot. He'll ask when she is going to come out so he can hold her. My answer to this is always that she has to grow big, so now when you ask him what Ava is doing he says that "she is growing big". I'm not too sure that he really understands that another person is going to live with us and take up room in my lap. :)

Watterson Family Ski Trip
Over spring break we went with Preston's whole family on a fun ski trip to Breckenridge. We all had a great time!

Fun in Portland

Last weekend I headed to Portland to hang out with my sister, Leah, who lives there. Our other sister, Amy, came too so the three of us got to have a fun time together. It was great getting to see where Leah goes to school and meet some of her friends....even her boyfriend. ;) We did some cool sight-seeing, visited touristy places, shopped, etc. Here are some pics of our adventures:

Saturday Market...taking a rest to eat and warm up

We happened to be sitting in the right place for a Chinese dragon show!

Heading off to winter formal

Skiing! It was a little interesting since I was the only one of the three of us who has ever skied before!

Thought this was a good one of Amy headed back up the bunny slope!

But then disaster struck when Amy hurt her knee. Luckily we had an excellent view of Mt. Hood while we waited on the ski patrol to come get her and take her back to the base.

Amy was pulled down the mountain on a sled by one of the ski patrol guys.

Over all it was a good trip...but I wasn't the one who had to wear a homemade card board box leg splint in the airport the next day. :)

In other news
In case you were wondering what Ava and I are looking like these days well here it is:

Here are a couple of funny videos of Chase. In the first one he is eating his pasta in a very interesting way and in the second one he is playing with Lucy. (This one is kinda long so it may be only grandparents that will care about it!)
