Summer 2013 Part 3

This summer we had to say goodbye to my "little" brother Micah and his wife Leona. They are joined my other "little" brother, Javan, in Vernal Utah, working for Cameron. ("Cameron is a leading provider of flow equipment products, systems and services to worldwide oil, gas and process industries." Haha.) Not long after they bought a home in Vernal, we found out that they are expecting a BABY at the end April! Jesse and I have a nephew on Jesse's side of the family (and in a couple weeks will have 2 nephews!), but this will be the first for my siblings!

Giving Aunt Leona bye bye  kisses.


Jesse, JD, Titus, Stefanie, Barrett and I went to the Western Idaho Fair in August. Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Joe watched Elliott so she wouldn't get all hot, grumpy, and tired.

Having a blast on JD's first fair ride EVER!
Look at those faces!

JD picked a boat with 2 girls on it!

August 31st Jesse and I had the amazing privilege of going to the brand new Husky Stadium! The game just happened to be against Boise State! The stadium was beautiful and the game was AMAZING! 38 to 6! 

Pretty good seats!

 While we were in Seattle for the game we met up with an old friend of Jesse's and her family. Here they are playing in the pool at our hotel.

Elliott getting tired from all the swimming.
JD soaking in the sun.
Also, while in Seattle we were able to spend an entire day with Great Grandma Davolt.

A week after the Husky game Jesse's cousin was married in Canada! So we stayed the week in Seattle and stayed in Canada on a Friday and Saturday.

This was the pool in our Canada hotel! Jesse is coming down the slide with Elli. Jenn and JD are off to the right side.

The kiss!

Sweet glances.

14 weeks prego w/ #3

Our baby: Week 14

Our baby's the size of a lemon!
At week 14, our baby is 3.4 inches and 1.5 ounces, he/she's almost doubled in weight since last week and keeps on growing.

  • He/she's probably sucking his/her thumb and wiggling his/her toes in there!
  • His/her kidneys are making urine, and his/her liver and spleen are doing their jobs, too.
  • And he/she's growing lanugo, a thin, peach-fuzz-like hair, all over his/her body -- it will help him/her keep warm!

  pregnancy symptoms at 14 weeks

  • As you emerge from the nasties of the first trimester, you're probably getting your energy back.
  • You're probably feeling some aches and pains, as your muscles and ligaments stretch to accomodate your growing baby.
  • Hungry! Once the queasies of the first trimester subside, you might find your appetite on overdrive.
  • You might notice your hair getting thicker and shinier, one of the (few) attractive side-effects of pregnancy.
