Mother's intuition Nuthin'!

This whole time I've been thinking it was a boy. In fact, the day after I delivered Jocelyn I was sitting in the hospital thinking and being so certain that our next one was a boy. I swear I could just feel it. Boy was I wrong! Or should I say, GIRL was a wrong! As I was in the room with the ultrasound tech yesterday I kept making comments like, "oh look at his arm", "oh look at his spine", blah blah blah. I should have noticed sooner that ultrasound tech had a smug little look on her face. When we got to the part where she was going to tell us the gender, I said "now you're going to prove me wrong and tell me it's a girl". She smiled and said, "it actually IS a girl". Wow, that totally took me by surprise. We are so excited though and can't wait to meet our next little pumpkin. The only trouble is....we had a boy name all picked out and we can't seem to agree on a girl name. Here we go again......

A few more vacation pictures


I guess I should have put some of my pictures together as one image, because this thing is only going to let me load a few of them. So I'll just have to make another whole post with only pictures after this.
Anyway----we went on a vacation! And it's about freaking time. We stayed at an awesome cabin in Jackson Hole and visited Yellowstone and all the weird little shops around Jackson. We could not have picked a better weekend to go. The weather was so beautiful, all the trees were golden and orange and red, and the temperature was perfect. I had never been to Yellowstone, so it was a lot of fun. Jocelyn did awesome in the car (surprisingly) so it made the experience all the more better.
We didn't see much wildlife, though. We saw some elk, some buffalo, a dead moose on the side of the road, and tons of geese. The geese must have all been flying south and stopping in Jackson for a break during the weekend of our visit. They were everywhere! We would wake up to the sound of them honking and Jocelyn had a lot of fun chasing them around our cabin area.
We spent three days, and although it doesn't sound like long it was nice to get back in our own beds and onto a more regular schedule.

Sunflower days

Okay, so these pictures were taken about a month ago...which means that the sunflower days are now gone. But oh how I love them. Can I just say that I live in the most beautiful place in the world? Seriously. We are so lucky to be in such a awesome place.
