Well today I started my maternity leave early. It's a great feeling knowing that I can take a week or two to relax and get some things done. I don't know why but with this second child, I'm not quite as nervous about getting things done. Don't get me wrong, I am still nagging Dean about things that he has to do before she arrives like everyday but I guess I'm a little more relaxed this time. I'm still feeling pretty good. I'm just ready to be able to walk without a waddle and bend down to pick something up without the feeling of falling over. I will be sure to keep everyone posted on her arrival. I'm hoping the weather will cooperate over the next few days with some sun so I can spend some time at the pool. I know that soon enough doing that will be much more difficult. (Countdown is 14 days)

It was so nice to get together again this past weekend with Cheryl and Natalie and awesome to finally get the kids together. We went up to Cheryl's husband Tim's parents place and spent the evening together while the kids played. We all had such a great time. I love how that after all this time, we can pick up where we left off like no time has passed. All the kids really hit it off too. Sophie, Naomi and Alexis became quick friends. I can only hope that we can get together again soon. I think Alexis's favorite part was riding in the back of the gator with Sophie's goppie. She still talks about it and asks why we don't have one. The inflatable jumping house was a big hit. The great thing is is that it is portable and you can take it anywhere. I may need to look into getting one. Anyway, here are a couple pictures of the evening.

Who doesn't love firecrackers????

to be able to spend some time together.

Alexis really took a liking to Sophie right away.
Maybe they'll be roommates in college too.
