July 2012

Here I am trying to catch up on our blog. I guess I'll take it one month at a time and go from there. We had some rainfall with the whole monsoon season starting up, so the boys took their shirts off and ran out in the rain for awhile. They had a good time.
  For the fourth of July, most of the day was rainy. But some of our friends in our ward had a "bring your own BBQ" party and we went to their house for swimming and BBQ before we went and watched the Gilbert fireworks.

 Mmm, dessert!

Here's me at 18 weeks along

At 19 weeks, we were able to have the ultrasound that determines the sex. And...

IT'S A GIRL!!! Here's her first beautiful photo.

 I was cheering in the ultrasound room as soon as she typed it up on the screen. We're both so excited! Although I have to admit, I am a little nervous because I have no idea what to expect with a girl.

We took a trip to Utah and Colorado at the end of July

 Lincoln and his uncle Kolton on Kolton's motorcycle

Jack and Grandpa on Grandpa's motorcycle

It's not the 24th of July without Doug's grandpa buying us all tickets to the Spanish Fork Rodeo!

Lincoln was such a daddy's boy the entire trip! Here he is clinging to his dad at the rodeo. Not even mom was allowed to touch or console him. I think Doug liked it.

Grandma Nelson treated us to the Heber Valley Railroad, and the boys absolutely loved it!

Funny face time!

We drove up to Heber to board the train, took a ride to Vivian Park for a quick picnic lunch, then got back on the train to Heber again. We were supposed to have stopped at the park for like 20 minutes. But by the time we got off, it was less than 10! We had to eat fast, then finish on the way back.

We took a drive up the canyon and had a dutch oven dinner and some birthday cake for Doug and Kolton. Jack wanted a baseball cake, so that's what Grandma made.

Grandpa and Kingsley watching Kolton and Cassidy bring back clapping games

And my absolute favorite picture of Lincoln... just enjoying the train ride and taking it all in. He was totally in heaven just hanging out on the train like this.
