Last Thursday I got to spend the day with my wonderful friend, Lisa. Not only did we get about 90 quarts of pickles made, but we had fun doing it. It is always great to spend time with her and I feel like we have known each other forever.

Pregnancy #3 is going well. I'm starting to feel a lot better and have some more energy back. Both big pluses for the busy summer we seem to be having.
I had a regular OB appointment on Friday and everything is just fine. My appointment next month will be the 20 week ultrasound. We are planning on not finding out the gender. We did not know with Charlie and did know with Cori and I liked not knowing better.
“In that day you will say: "Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.” (Isaiah 12:4)
What a weekend, we were busy busy. Joe told me a "relaxed, having fun" weekend is more work than going to work.....I agree. I think the girls agree too, they were both in bed by 7:30 pm tonight.....early bedtimes in our house.
I seem to lose track of blessings through out the days and week. I use to write them down. I need to go back to that. The following are some of our wonderful gifts from this most recent weekend.....
