cant hardly wait!

my family will be visiting from texas next week!! Dad, Katie Sean and Connor will be here on saturday!!!

Dominic had just one question, "why cant Opa (my dad) bring Jackson (my nephew)?"
me: because he lives in california with his mom and dad
Dominic: well, they they can go get him before they come here.

nevermind the addition of 3 or 4 days one way to the trip

also a topic of conversation has been the absence of peanut butter for the week, Sean is severly allergic so PB and J are banned, dominic is not amused .

well, im off to clean my guest room and vacum the cat hair off the furniture, fun day ahead.

everyone has been asking...

how are you feeling.

i usually say "pretty good, sometimes a bit nauseaus"

what i dont say is "for some reason the grocery shopping makes me heave" i dont know why it is, but when i come home from wal mart im beat down to the ground tired and running for the toilet.

poor dominic...he always looks scared. he comes to the bathroom door and asks "are you ok mommy"

also, i dont complain to them (but i will tell you) that getting dressed is harder than ever, my pants dont fit, the next size up pants slide down in back, giving me a saggy butt, none of my skirts fit, my snug tee shirts look ridiculous right now and none of my shorts fit properly either.
i have 2 dersses that are good, theyre my best friends right now.

aside from that things are going well, we took dominic to the dr with us last week and we all got to hear the baby's heart beat. he is super excited about being a big brother.

we are hoping for the gender reveal august 18. keep your fingers crossed that the baby's legs are un crossed :)

look what we found in the park, in the dark.
we will take him home.
we will call him clark.
he will stay at our house.
he will grow and grow.
will our mother like this?
we dont know.
~~~ Dr. Seuss

we found this little guy taking shelter from the storm on our front porch. he was a wonderful model and let me snap a good many pictures before he hopped off behind the chairs in a "youve had your fun, now leave me alone" fashion.

the fair

it was a hot day to hit the fair...but we went anyway.

mom and i took a twirl in the Tilt a Whirl

Ken and D opted for the Scrambler instead.

the state winner Big Pig from last year was there, imagine the pig, Uncle from Charlottes Web, it was like that it weighed 1285 pounds.

also a calf had been born a few hours before our arrival. D liked seeing the baby calf learn to walk and nurse but wondered why the mom knocked the baby down and wouldnt stand still so the baby could eat, i told him cows werent all that smart, i dont know if thats true or not, but they dont seem too bright to me.

Dominic felt that greeting the runners of the Firecracker 5K as Obi Wan Kenobi would be the most effective way to encourage them along.

he got alot of comments.

one guy did a great Yoda impersonation for him.
one guy gave him the vulcan sign for "live long and prosper".
