Camping with Theo


We wanted to see how Theo would do camping. He did great!! Between 
the three of us, he probably slept the best.  He loved being outdoors, 
all day and all night.
We had hotdogs and smore's and Theo loved both of them. Isn't Theo's 
chair great?  I found it in front of a house with a sign on it that said,"Free."  
We went on a few hikes.  It was a little hot but we still had fun.

Janine's Baby Bump

We found this cute Michigan cheerleading outfit on eBay. Only $2.99. What a deal! We are training her young.

People are finally starting to realize that Janine is pregnant.

25 weeks...at least that's what we think. We always forget what week she is because of all the confusion in the beginning.

Proud parents

Our New (well, two months old) Apartment

The living room.

Our new desk in the baby's room. (notice the stroller on the right-$60 on Craigslist)

Janine's parents gave us this little crib to start out with. We set it up and love it.

Our bedroom.

The kitchen. It was a little messy because we were on our way to Vegas.

Our House

So here are a few pictures of our new house. We moved in last Saturday and still have some unpacking to do (it really gets old after the first few boxes). We went to our new ward today, it seems like it will be really good - we're excited!
Here is me in front of the house



This is Baby's room. He is really lucky to have so much stuff already!



Dave in our family room.



For Father's Day, we broke in our new BBQ grill by cooking a nice big steak and some corn and veggies - it was pretty good. It sure is awesome to have a grill!!

Chicago Blues

Not only was Chicago very windy on our visit there this weekend, but the 25th Annual Blues Fest was in progress. It was great fun. We walked for hours, and saw many things we had not seen before.


Here we are walking along Lake Shore Drive with Navy Pier in the background.

A nice view of the Chicago skyline.

This was a cool shot of a building along one of the canals near Wabash and Lower Wacker Drive.

Right after our Chicago style pizza lunch.

Baby Doot Ultrasound pics

IT'S A GIRL!!Here is her face and her profile, the profile is Janine's favorite.

Here are her feet. Janine's 2nd favorite, and she has her legs crossed at the ankles, just like momma
Here are the pictures we got from the ultrasound, we are very excited about having a baby. The doctor kept on saying that the baby sure wasn't shy about showing the whole world that she is a girl.....as you all can see. Now comes the hard part, now we have to pick a name.... any ideas?

It's a girl!!!

I cannot find the cord for the camera right now so I cannot post any pictures (I will as soon as I find it) but we wanted to let everyone know that we just found out that we are having a baby girl! Her due date is October 9th. Janine is going to scan some of the ultrasound pictures and post them soon so that everyone can see her.

fun and hot air balloons

So...we had a stake activity today and it was a lot of fun. It was pretty far into the canyon and we got to do all sorts of things like play in a blow-up play castle, play twister on a blow-up twister board, make s'mores, play frisbee, and go up in a hot air balloon! This is a picture of me in the balloon in the air. It was really fun...although we didn't go very high.
Me, Jen, and Tiffany in front of the hot air balloon.
