maggie was right:

She is going to have a little sister!

We had our first doctor's appointment here yesterday. Sam and Maggie came along, and everything went great. We weren't expecting to have an ultrasound, but we got snuck in! Our little girl looks great, and is measuring right at 24 weeks (except for her legs which were at 25 weeks, and her head which was 23 weeks), so the due date of New Year's day stays the same. We got to see her stick her tongue out and her little hands right up by her face. It was a really good machine and tech, so we got to see a lot, and it was nice to not have to wait and wait to get an ultrasound.
So, I get to keep all the girl stuff, and I think I am ready to get crafty with some girly things...

Sunday evening we were looking for something to do, so we were going to go to Costco. They close at 6:00, and it was 5:58 (or so). So then we were going to go to K-Mart, they close at 6:00, too. So we headed to American Falls. On the drive over we passed through a dust storm, and tumbleweed was blowing across the highway, and then some blew straight at us. It was pretty exciting. You don't get anything like that down South, or on the Palouse.
American falls had a grocery where we got some ice cream bars, and a park where Maggie played. It is a tiny town, but it was somthing to do, and we had a good time.

Eastern Idaho State Fair

Here we are.

Pop Pop and Nanette came to visit us and we all went to the fair.

No rides for us (maybe next year), but we saw a lot of animals, ate fair food, saw a hypnotist, and saw a lot of local color...

Ice Cream with Nanette.

Cattle Barn!

This cow was not happy, and was letting everyone know it.

Maggie was not happy with all the angry noises.

Idaho Falls Chukars

We went to a baseball game in Idaho Falls a few weeks ago. Maggie had a great time, and clapped with the rest of the crowd. She kept pointing at the baseball players and saying "a guy, another guy"-and her favorite part: a hot dog and a few sips of our coke...
