fun morning

Today was the ultrasound, so John came home about 15 min. before the appointment to go there. Just as we were getting ready to leave, Brian fell off a chair in the kitchen and hit his ear on another chair on the way down. It was bleeding like crazy and John thought it may need stitches. Awesome. John cleaned him up and I put a steri strip on his ear hoping that it would keep the wound together enough to not need stitches. When we got to the radiology clinic, I asked if they had a nurse there who could look at Brian's ear to see if it needed stitches. They said, no, but that the radiologist could look at it and to just ask the ultrasound technician when I went in. I went in for the ultrasound (about ready to pee my pants because of the full bladder), only to discover that I was only 16.5 weeks along. Weird. I guess I missed a period or something, which is not too surprising. So, I'm due Oct. 31 now. It was too early to check everything that he needed to check, so he brought John and the kids in so that they could see the baby and I will need to get another ultrasound on June 11. I asked if the radiologist could look at Brian's ear, so he went to get him. The radiologist said that since we taped it up well enough, we could just clean it up and tape it again and keep the tape on until it falls off.

So, I was kind of bummed that I'm only 16 weeks along, but whatev. It's really only 10 days later than I had thought, but my Dr. had said I was 19 weeks along. Oh well. I'm just glad the baby looks healthy and that Brian didn't need stitches. Crazy morning.

writing-on-stone campout

On Friday John called from work and suggested going camping at Writing-on-Stone, so I packed stuff up and we were off about an hour later. We got there around 8pm and I quickly set up the tent while John made a fire (with some super wet wood). The kids loved it. They slept pretty well......John and I-not so much. We were crammed in our 2 man tent. Luckily we brought our memory foam mattress, but I guess I'm a wuss now or something. In the morning we walked around the campsite and snacked on food waiting for Brian to wake up. He slept until 9:30! Weird. The rest of the day we played around on the hoodoos and at the park. On the way out we went to the new visitor centre and looked at indian artifacts and such. Pretty cool!

On the way home, we stopped by the dinosaur in Milk River. The visitor centre was closed, but the dinosaur was enough excitement for us. Brian and Elijah were pretty scared at first, but by the end they were friends with Mr. T. Rex.

Digging for worms

I hate worms. And bugs. I'm trying not to pass that fear onto my children. Worms actually don't bother me too much, but I don't think you'd ever catch me holding one. I discovered the kids digging for worms a couple weeks ago after the snow/rain. They had fun and it kept them busy for a long time. So fun!
