It's a 3rd Boy

Boy, were we surpised! We were sort of hoping for a girl, but the best news of all is that it's a healthy baby. Worthy is a bit heartbroken. He really wanted a little sister and he wanted to name her Pinky Rose. We are delighted at the practical implications - same boy clothes, toys, etc. Praise God for this little guy!

Cedar Point visit

We spent this past week in Ohio visiting family. One of our favorite things to do is to go to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. I was a little bummed because it's no fun going to the Roller Coaster Capital of the World when you're pregnant :) Anyway, I was really looking forward to kiddie land with the boys, being with family and seeing my nephews experience some great roller coaster adventures. However, all of my wonderful dreaming did not anticipate Dan and Worthy getting sick. Dan woke up feeling rather poor and by the end of the night, he retreated back to the van to sleep. Worthy (and Will) ended up leaving early with my parents because Worthy was not feeling good. So the best laid plans of mice & men....
Early in the morning with their cousin, Holden

Can't go wrong with Dodgems

Worthy enjoying a blue slushie after a serious spinning ride
that we believe accelerated his upset tummy.

Will - exhausted, despite the smile

A family pic before everyone melted down :)

Worthy turns 5

A couple weeks ago, we got to celebrate Worthy turning 5! We had to put off his birthday party a couple of days, because he came down with a rotten cold. He had a great time at his party and we enjoyed having his friends come over and swim. It was just a lovely day.

Pool Time Fun

I'm no Julia Child, but I can make a Betty Crocker cake and thief decorating ideas. In retrospect, I wish I had brought the rest of the Good-n-Plenties to Ohio for Charlotte. I had no idea they were yummy. I'm still not enticed...

Reading his birthday cards

And... an actual picture of me with Will... he really liked the cake.

And lastly - giving the gifts a trial run
