Wilder Ranch

We took advantage of the sunshine today and got out for a nice hike in Wilder Ranch. The views were incredible, and the kids did pretty good, except for on our way back when Livi tripped and fell in some mud. As much as she likes hiking, she was pretty miserable the rest of the way to the car. Carson had fun climbing trees and flinging mud and hiding in the big dry ravines created by the rain alongside the trail. And on our way down, we saw a bobcat! He was catching something, looked like a small rabbit or a mole or some other small critter. He was pretty close to us, and looked right at us several times. It was kind of creepy, but also fun to see in the wild! I'm just so glad we didn't come upon any mountain lions.

It's a....


We had our ultrasound last week and saw some great glimpses of our little boy!!! Praise God that everything looks to be growing wonderfully, and we are thrilled to be having another boy. Carson was happy when the technician announced that it was a boy, Livi was a little dissappointed...she was really hoping to have a little sister. But I know she'll love this little boy so much. And we love that we'll have a Livi sandwich...boy/girl/boy.
We got some great pictures from the ultrasound, but we don't have a scanner, so these are pictures of the pictures, which turned out very blury.
This whole pregnancy thing is just such an amazing time and I feel SO blessed to be carrying another little Hughsie.

The "Salon"

Livi has been wanting to get her hair cut at the "salon" for a while now, so last week when Jason was off work, we had a little girls afternoon and went to Supercuts for her first real hair cut (I'd cut it a couple times before, but it wasn't quite the same experience w/o the fun chair and the apron, etc.) She was so happy and sat so still and was really enjoying it. We just had her take off a couple inches and frame her face a little bit. It turned out pretty cute, although I was wishing I'd told her to subtly layer the back because it ended up looking a little too straight and bluntly cut, but oh well. It was fun. Afterward we went out for a little icecream treat.
