Just wanted to pop in and add some new photos. The kids and I went to a local park with our friends this past Tuesday. They had a ball climbing a tree with low lying branches.

Ben reading, I love this photo!

Photos of the baby!

I had an appointment with my midwife today. I asked her to see if she could feel to see if she could tell which position the baby is in. I have been feeling kicks in strange places and thought that she might be breech (she isn't though, whew!). She smiled and said "Let's just go do an ultrasound". She ended up doing a 3D and got some wonderful shots of the baby. She has her arm and hand up by her face in the first one. She is pooching her little lips out in the second one. Everything looked to be ok!

I apologize for waiting so long between updates. Life has been very busy. Tonight (if we don't get rained out) is Ben's final baseball game. Tuesday is Natalie's. Then things should calm down a bit. I am in my 32nd week of pregnancy...only eight more weeks to go!
I am including some of the latest photos of the kids. The first few are of our ill fated camping trip. It never occured to me that it might not be the best idea in the world to go camping when one is 7 1/2 months pregnant! We ended up coming home a day early but I think the kids had a good time while we were there. Natalie made a friend (the doggie) and we saw lots of cool bugs, frogs, etc.

We also made a visit to the Chattanooga Market. It is a farmer's Market in the downtown area that features handmade crafts, herbs, food, etc. Ben rode some type of scrambling machine and loved it.

This is a photo of the kids in their "restaurant". Ben takes all of the tables, trays and chairs in the house and makes a "fancy restaurant" where we eat our meals for a few days before putting the house back to normal.

We found a battery operated Volkswagon Beetle at a thrift store for a steal (normally over $200. and we got it for $10.). She is so very proud of it.

Last but not least...we found a Slip 'n Slide at a discount outlet for $2.00! The kids LOVE it and they even got their daddy on it. They had a blast.
