Family Vacation

So recently we just got back from MI where we visited my grandfather. My sister flew in and my dad just happened to be in from leave and my baby brother was also there. We drove to MI on the 5th and got back on the 13th (btw I hate Chicago, talk about bad traffic and no fun!) It rained a lot there so we weren't able to do as much as we wanted to but we had fun catching up with the family and I loved seeing my sister and neice and nephew.

Here are the cousins in the car getting ready to go somewhere. There is Lucas, Grace and James. Lucas is 5 weeks younger then Grace.

Here is Lucas and Grandpa on Grandpa's motorcycle. FYI that face is a common recurrence in all his pictures. He hates sitting still for anything much less a picture.

Sean, James and Lucas at the Detroit Zoo. Pretty much the only place we went the whole week. The last day we were there the weather decided to be nice and be sunny and not rainy for once.

My child has a tendency to run away from me and not follow directions so we got this nifty Monkey backpack for him. He really didn't mind it much...

So baby number two is growing. I don't know why but I feel smaller then I did with Lucas. It might be that I am now at the weight that I started with Lucas. Or maybe this baby is just smaller. We find out the sex on June 29th so keep posted because I will let people know. I finished the baby quilt that I started when I was pregnant with Lucas (I was smart I knew how long quilts take me). It was my first attempt at applique and I will have to say that it isn't too bad.

Hopefully we have a girl because the quilt is alittle girly.

So as of yesterday June 14th Lucas has started the long journey towards potty training. Yesterday he only peed in the potty once, but things today have been better. It is 6pm and he has peed 3 times, however while I was making dinner he pooped on the floor, but all the joys of being a mom right?! I just have to keep telling myself that I can't quit. I never quit at anything so this shouldn't be different. I am hoping that I will only have to be on basic house arrest for a week before we can actually leave and venture out into the world.

Beau is doing well. His pooping has gotten under control. We have the best Vet Clinic in the world. Here is our big puppy!

6 Months old!

The quilt is very cool! It seems like that would take forever to make. Have fun potty training! I can't wait til I get to potty train Dallin. :) He never minds having a wet or poopy diaper, so I'm thinking potty training will be a challenge with him.
