Yes, its true!

As you can probably see from the above ticker, we are expecting another baby! We are very excited and since I've told so many people already, I thought I'd share it with my fellow bloggers. I sent Dan the doctored picture below at work to tell him and he thought it was just another email forward of a funny sign someone really put on the freeway. So much for my surprise. I had to call him and tell him that that is our baby! We see the doctor on the 30th and will keep you posted on the baby's progress.

Big Red Barn

Every year we go to the Big Red Barn in Santaquin. This year we were babysitting our friends kids and decided to take them along. We went on a hay ride that takes us out to the pumpkin patch. All the kids picked out a pumpkin and we took the hay ride back to the barn where we had hot apple cinnamon donuts! It was a little cold, but we all still had a great time.

Birthday Girl

Today is Kristina's birthday and we were able to share that with Matt & Allysa, Melissa & Taylor, and Brian & Amanda. Matt and Alyssa cooked up a nice pesto chicken dish and some homemade oreos. Everything was great and we had a nice time.

Last night we went out for her birthday up to Sundance with our friends the Boxxes and the Petersons. We ate at the Foundry Grill, which was tasty, and the atmosphere was great. We had a nice relaxing evening, but forgot to bring the camera. Oh well, it was still a nice night.

Kristina is a great wife and mother, the kids and I are truly blessed to have her.

Bryce Canyon, the Boxxes and a bazillion pictures

This past weekend we went camping in southern Utah. We had a blast with our friends the Boxxes in Bryce Canyon. What a beautiful place! We had never been there and it was so great. The weather was perfect although the mornings were a little chilly. We stayed in these cute little cabins that had nothing more than a bunkbed and a table. It did help that it had electricity and a heater so we were very comfortable. We spent all Saturday touring the park and hiking in the canyon. The hike was gorgeous and going down I thought it was really fun. The way back up was a different story. I thought they would have to send an ambulance down to get me.:) The kids were laughing at me because they were practically running up the mountain. Oh youth! Here are some pictures from our trip:

The kids slept on the top, while Dan and I took the bottom bunk

The Boxxes made some great omelets the first morning!

The park had a free bus that took us to all the sights. The kids loved this part.

There were so many gorgeous views

This huge tree is actually on some of the postcards we bought.

This tunnel was on the way down, which is why Im still smiling!

The Guys

I think the kids got a little tired of posing for pictures

Taking a little break

Great view!

This picture is great, but I was scared to death because we were on the edge of a cliff with no fence.

Relaxing by the fire that night. We made smores and Jarom made peach cobbler. Camping is definitely not diet-friendly!

Right across from our campground there was a place called "Old Bryce Town". It was just a row of a few little shops, but the kids loved exploring it. I found a few little things there myself.

Silly boys (Bradley and Peyton)

Bradley and Kylie loved this cutout

Ben had a great time riding the "horsey"

Our campground had this great store with anything we might need.

The kids all got Bryce Canyon shirts to pose in.

The whole gang

On our way out of town the boys thought that this "Restrooms or Bust" sign was hilarious.
