Our li'l pumpkin graduate.

See ya in two years Mrs. Sandra! My kids are definitely more awesome having had her for a teacher.

I wasn't planning on taking his picture. I pulled out my phone to check the time and I hear this little tiny voice saying "cheeeeeese" and when I looked up he was ready and posing for a picture so how could I not capture that cute little guy.

I got pinned for the first time at Pack Meeting the other night.

I see why they give out the mother's pin. I really do feel like I too have earned the Bobcat. I'm going to be an expert scouter by the time Nathan turns 8!

Seth's super cool space derby rocket he raced at the same Pack Meeting and you can see his third missing tooth he lost Sunday.

Zachy has his last day of preschool today and graduation tonight. No more preschool in this house for two more years. My kids are so close in age, yet because of birthdays are all two years apart in school (besides the first two). Crazy!

Good news! We went in for the 20 week ultrasound today and everything looks great! My placenta has moved up so there's no longer a risk of placenta previa, the baby is growing perfectly, and I was told that the ultrasound didn't really show any of my hemorrhage so it most likely took care of itself. What a relief! I'm hoping that now I can be a little more excited about having this baby instead of the gloom I've felt for the last several months. I still have to take it easy because even after light activity my baby area hurts pretty bad and/or I start having contractions and I have to just sit for hours and hours until it passes. We really really needed some good news! Also, it's a good thing I've had other ultrasounds and they were able to tell us the gender because it wasn't really obvious today. What a bummer that would have been!

On Sunday we decided to have our Memorial Day barbeque seeing as it was just the best day out of the whole long weekend. We started around 3 in the afternoon and finally decided it was time to go inside at 9pm. It was such a fun and relaxing family day.

And look at this...Seth got his first ringer! I dare you to play him. He's good.

Monday we headed for the mountains and hiked and picnicked at Silver Lake. Hike might be a strong word as it's made for strollers and wheelchairs, but it was still fun and perfect for us.

Zachary's holding the trees up so they don't fall on me. He loves me.

Since we were so close we drove up to Ryan's favorite ski resort, Brighton, and let the older kids hike around a little bit.

This past weekend was just a perfect fun family weekend. We definitely needed it!

We went to the Payson Temple open house tonight. Beautiful.

Ryan told me to smile for a picture.

Then, Maybe wanted to be in a picture with me.

Then one...

by one...

they all wanted to be with me, their mom, at the temple.

I seriously loved this moment.

They don't get more perfect than this.

A boy and his button, belly that is.

I'm so lucky.

Why so many posts lately you ask? Well, when I have contractions, which is not good seeing as how I am only 19 weeks, I get to sit down and be lazy bones for a while until they pass so I have a little time on my hands. I've been having a few problems with this pregnancy and one of the side effects is pre-term labor so I'm listening to my body and trying to have a healthy baby.

But hey, life isn't always hard. We must be doing something right if we all still want to smile.

A boy and his Grampa. Such a sweet photo.

See this sweet little boy who fell asleep on the floor at church with with wittle ducky blankie and binkie?

Yeah, well this week he is turning into quite the little naughty boy. He has started pushing and hitting. As you can see from these pictures, Zachy took a plastic drill to the face yesterday.

No good reason for it. Just minding his own business.

His brothers and sisters don't push him around, I don't push him around and that's who he's around most of the time. Sigh. Here come the terrible two's and three's.

We went to Ryan's favorite pizza place the other night. Zachy wanted a picture of him and his pepperoni's. He only does this at this one restaurant. What a weirdo. Also, the kids asked if we are having twins because we usually go to this restaurant to tell the kids we're having another baby. Aren't they hilarious.

April had so many important and wonderful things happen for our family, but it was also one of the worst months I have gone through. The second is the reason for my lack of updating this. I figured I'd better do something before I lose all my Fanatics, so here's a few photos. Don't worry, I'll be back.
