It's a Boy!

We had our big ultrasound today and it is definitely a boy. I thought for sure that it would be a girl, but the baby left no doubt that he is a he! He is perfectly healthy and very active. We saw a lot, but didn't get many good pictures because he was moving too much. Our due date is still on schedule for June 8th. We're still deciding on a name, but the siblings are all very excited. Kylie remains the princess of the house!

St George Half Marathon

I've spent the last few months training for my first half marathon (13.1 miles) and the race was Saturday. It was in St George so I went down with 5 others from my office. I finished 306th out of 1033 finishers with a time of 1:49:52. My goal was to run under 1:55, so I was pleased with the results. Hopefully this is the first of many more to come.

Super Clean Saturday

The following pictures are a result of a sick/pregnant mom and a busy dad. We solved the problem of messy rooms by closing the door. Well, when you add Christmas toys to the mix, it finally became unbearable. We headed to IKEA for some more storage and took out several bags of garbage. Their rooms look so great now and they actually enjoy playing in them because they can find everything. All their toys have a "home" which should help when they are cleaning up. I know it won't last forever, but I'm hoping for at least a day or two!
