Saturday to Monday we camped at Milk River with Jeff's family and it was SO much fun. I was kind of dreading it because the last time we went Caden was about the same age Cayleigh is now and we had a rough time. But this time was nothing like that. Cayleigh did really well and Caden had a GREAT time.
We went on a hike with Grampie and Sadie (the dog) Sunday morning. Caden was a trooper but he got tired out on the way back. Jim (Grampie) carried little Cayleigh up the rocks in her stroller and he put her to sleep. Caden took the picture of me by the rocks all by himself. ;)
There are pictures of the river that are really pretty. We got on air mattresses, boats, etc. and floated down the river. Cayleigh came along too and was really good. Although on Monday morning she wasn't the happiest camper. She got sick in the night and just wanted Mommy during the day. I put her on my raft with me and she fell asleep on me as we floated down the river. Caden was in the boat with Grampie and he actually fell overboard. :S But he had a life jacket on and didn't even shed a tear. All I've been hearing is, "I felled in the water, Mommy. Grampie JUMPED in and brought me out!". :)
The kids slept quite well which was another bonus. They had fun at the beach and Caden LOVED building castles with Daddy. He played and played and didn't tire of it. It was a lot of fun!

Yes, Jeff and I are expecting our third little one. :) I don't want to post it on facebook just yet, but I wanted to announce it here because this is my journal of sorts and also because we specifically invited you and this is an easy way to share the news. :) We're not very far along at all and we are praying that all goes well since I usually do have troubles along the way. We're excited. We've thought I was pregnant for a few weeks now due to nausea and all that fun stuff and it was just confirmed last week. I'll have to have an ultrasound to find out how far along we really are. Lately all we hear is how busy we're going to be and how crazy we are, but that is not what we think at all. We hoped our children could be close in age and they will be.
So that's our news. ;)
Yesterday was Jeff's birthday and it was a great day. :) Caden painted pictures for Daddy (Cayleigh insisted on coming out of her crib to be a part of the action), we made a cake and a special supper, and then once the kids were in bed my good friend, Justyne, came over and watched the kids while I took Jeff to see Harry Potter (it was a surprise and he loved it). :)
So in about 2 1/2- 3 weeks our basement should be all done. The flooring is already ordered and we just have to paint and wait on the floors. I'm getting excited for the extra space, and I know the kids will especially love their play area. :)
