Owen's first birthday!

So, this is long past due but better late than never, right? We went to the zoo on July 17th for Owen's birthday (his birthday's really the 18th but that fell on a sunday this year). He seemed to enjoy it alot. Here are some pictures from the day.

Riding on daddy's shoulders (you can't tell in the pic but he absolutely hates riding on anyone's shoulders.)

Seeing how they measure up to gorillas.

Playing in the pool we got him. He loves the water.

In front of the fan that misted you at the zoo. I thought the faces he pulled were pretty funny.

Exciting day!

Yesterday was an exciting day for us. First off, Rick got up with Owen at 7 and let me sleep in till about 9:30. I can't remember the last time I slept in that late; it was great! We just relaxed all morning and then went to my doctor appointment at 1:50, where we heard GREAT news!! I'm dilated to 2cm! So exciting to hear! That means she could be coming so soon! They also decided to do an ultrasound, since Owen measured so small, they wanted to see how Sadie is doing at this stage of the pregnancy. Everything looked great and she's estimated at 6lbs 6oz, which is 4oz bigger than Owen was when he was born, and Sadie still has 2 weeks to keep growing! She's gonna be huge compared to what Owen was. We came home to find that our American Express/ Costco cards had come in the mail, which was exciting. Now hopefully we'll be able to earn more money back each year. The only non-exciting thing of the day was shopping. I have been very unsuccessfull in finding a shortsleeved, button down pajama set, which I want for when I go to the hospital. I finally ended up finding one at and am having to pay extra to have it shipped, so it better fit when it gets here. Last, but not least, it was my brother Kyal's 22nd birthday, so we got to eat yummy mud pie that Halie and my mom made. It was so good! Perfect way to end a great day.
