It's a Boy!

Okay so I've know for awhile that I am having a boy thanks to some great friends with great connections.  But since I haven't made the official announcement I thought I would.  We are really excited to be adding another little guy to our family.  I'm glad Fischer will have a brother.  Today we had our official ultrasound at the doctors.  Everything is looking great.  He's active and measuring where he should.  
Can I just say I love how he is pointing to himself in this picture.

Bedtime Sweetness

Putting Fischer to bed at our house is one of my favorite times of the day.  (And No it is not because he's going to bed and I get time to myself.) Fischer's bedtime ritual is one my favorites. It's one of the few moments in our day where the TV is off, the phones are turned away, and we get to spend a couple minutes just as a family.  Bedtime ritual starts with a bath that usually is done by his Dad while i get his PJ's together and gather up his blanket.  I love hearing the two of them laugh and giggle about bubbles in the tub or splashing daddy.  It truly is music to a mother's ears.  Once bath time is done and Fischer is dressed in jammies we settle down and read a chapter from the scriptures.  Fischer usually likes to sit next to me and read along.  Then he gets to pick a book of his own.  Sometimes two.  Once reading is done we say our prayers (which is becoming so cute as Fischer tries to say his own.)  Then for my personal favorite...a little dance with Mom.  Every night I will hold him and as he lays his head on my shoulder and we will either sing or hum a song while we sway back and forth.  Lately Fischer will be the one who will sing and hum a song as we sway and dance around the room.  It melts my heart and I love it.  I hope it's something that will last for awhile as I know all little boys grow up.

Early Summer Fun

This Summer has just began but we have been having lots of fun enjoying the good weather and being together with family.  Here are just some of the things we have been doing thus far.

FISHING
In our family the summer wouldn't be summer if we didn't go fishing.  Karl and Andy (our brother-in-law) decided to take the boys fishing.  Needless to say they had a lot of fun. 
This was Fischer saying "No Daddy!" He didn't want Daddy's help. He was a big boy and going to fish all by himself.
 
 Hunter is getting pretty good at the fly fishing. 
Since Karl didn't get to fish much with having Fischer around he decided to go back to the same river later that week and caught this nice size fish.  

RODEO
We were able to go to the Eagle Mountain Rodeo.  (Sorry No pictures) but it was fun hanging out with the family and Fischer loved watching the horses and the bulls buck off the cowboys.  

DEMOLITION DERBY
Fischer and I got to experience our first demolition derby.  It was quite the experience.  The sound of crashing metal still makes me shiver, but Fischer LOVED it.  He still talks about it.  He was cheering and asking for more every time one of the events ended.  

Lining up for the next round
 Fischer was too intrigued in the cars to stop watching to pose for a picture.
 
This guy was CRAZY.  They did a truck round and he was the last truck standing so he decided to thrill everyone with a stunt.  
It's been fun and can't wait to see what the rest of summer brings.
