Family Visit

This last weekend we had Preston's sister Wendi, her husband Wade, Preston's cousin Carly, and her boyfriend Adam all over for a fun stay. We had lots of fun hanging out and doing some fun stuff around the city. They all wend to Pops (without me) which is a semi-famous gas/food station on historic Route 66, we visited the Oklahoma City Memorial, went to a Red Hawks game, had dessert at the Melting Pot, etc. Good times. Here are a few pics....most of which I stole off of Wendi and Carly's blogs. ;)

Poor Wade. Chase pretty much crawls all over him the entire time they are around each other. Wade, it's only b/c he loves you!

Check out those guns!
Us at the baseball game.
The whole crew at the Melting Pot.
Preston ran on a relay team in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon this weekend. They all did really well. So well, in fact, that I missed Preston finish it (he was the last leg) by about 5 minutes. So mad. Here is his team:

Random: I just thought this picture was funny. Last week Chase went over to play with his friend Ty at his house (I was sick...thank you Jen!). This is the way he fell asleep about 5 minutes after getting home. I guess he played hard!

Ava Update

Miss Ava continues to grow as you can see from the picture below. I'm now 26 1/2 weeks along and doing pretty well. Other than a week long sinus infection that I can't kick, joint pain, and a tooth ache of all things, I'm doing great! Almost exactly 3 months until the July 31st expected arrival time. Wow! I can't believe how fast it is going. Seriously...my last pregnancy crawled compared to this! I've picked out a crib bumper, baby book, and maybe even a diaper bag but I have yet to buy any of it. I really need to get going on the room. Actually I need to get Chase's new room squared away first (which is going to be super cute by the way) so I can get him out of Ava's room and start painting it. Preston says he'll be ready to start working on it once school is out. He graduates with his masters in ONLY 2 WEEKS! Woo-hoo! Ava kicks me all the time which is really fun. Chase talks about her a lot. Sometimes he will stick out his stomach and tell Preston to do the same saying "lets make our Ava's in there". So funny. I go for the dreaded glucose test next week. I actually don't mind drinking the stuff so much...it's wasting the hour at the doctors office waiting to have blood drawn that I am not looking forward to. Anyway, here's a 26 week picture. Getting bigger!

April Update

Chase and I went to Abilene to hang out with my old roomies and my sister. We all had a great time. Chase liked playing with their kids (when he felt good) and also LOVED seeing his Aunt Amy.

Earlier this month we went to my parent's house for a visit. Chase likes to help his granddaddy. We also went to Canton trade day. It was really fun getting to shop for a girl! I bough Ava some goodies and Chase got some decor for his new room for when Ava kicks him out of the baby room. :)

A few days ago I heard some banging noises coming from Chase's room and this is how I found him.

Nice hair Preston. :)

Potty training. How's it going?....well....it's going.
