I walked into our bedroom to find this!!! Do you think he could be jealous? Cassidy smiles all the time, but everytime I go to film her or get a picture she stops. This video is my attempt at getting her to smile, with mikey trying to get on camera as well.Halloween Trunk or Treat: We brought cassidy around to the cars so she (her parents) could have some candy! Cassidy in her stroller, getting ready to take a walk around the lake. However, she Left mommy a surprise in her pants once we reached the lake, and Mommy did not have a change of clothes. Lol It all worked out. The Pymms let us borrow their DMU blanket.

Last few days before Medical School classes begin

We scored some free tickets to go see the Iowas cubs. It was a lot of fun! However, it seemed a little weird not having family with us at a baseball game. We did not end up staying the whole time, but when we did go the cubs were wasting the other team. GO IOWA CUBS!! I am such a nerd! :-)
We decided to try out the local canoing. It was five dollars to rent a canoe for a half hour, so we decided to give it a try and it was totally worth it. The lake is beautiful, and their was a light breeze. It was still way hot with the humidity and we felt like jumping in. We get so much rain here! In the last picture we took it from the canoe and it shoes the water flooding up into the park bench and trash can.

Carl had his first day of orientation for med. school, and said it went really well. They had a family BBQ after that was tons of fun, and of course free food! We really are loving Iowa, but we miss you all very much!!! cant wait to see you guys!!! Love ya all!!!

July 26th update a day late. opps ;-)

So yesterday I went to the doctors. I am 36 weeks along, dilated to a 1, and efaced 60%. The doctor said she is measuring a little small so they are going to do an ultrasound next time. The doctor did not sound to worried though. We are excited because the baby could come anytime now. The doctor is also confident that she would be just fine which is a comfort to know. We are so excited and ready for her to be here!
Mikey, also is sporting a new look. I think he is feeling a lot better with this look and the heat. He is such a good dog! We love him very much! We played a noise of a baby crying to him, and he perked up. He knows something is coming.
