So we packed up the gang and headed to Amboy, Illinois this weekend. Why amboy b/c we were hitting a graduation party on sunday for gregs cousing in Oregon, Illinois. We met some other family members at the campground with their three kids. It rained on us the whole drive there(2 hours and a big detour b/c the mississippi bridge was closed) this is bad b/c I HATE riding in the car for any longer than 30 min, needless to say the kids did great and were so excited when we got there b/c the rain had stopped. You would think you would find a muddy mess, but not the case here. We had a great time from swimming, hayrack rides, waterslides, the drive in movie theater, the parks, and not to mention seeing the fam. We bought a camper with Nate and Sara last summer and love it, it is the cheapest way to travel with kids and they cannot get enough. Isaac of course cried when it was time to go home and asked when we could camp again(might I add that I figured he brought his blankie along and when we arrived at the campsite and he did not have it he ended up doing great and didnt ask for it till the car ride home-this is a big step for this little guy who cant get enough of his blankie or CHOCOLATE MILK) . The grad party was great and nice to see more family again. I'm sure there will be may more camping trips to come, but know I just need to convice SARA of how much fun it is. LOL

BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HOLY COW:) I cant believe it either. We decided to have my IUD(a form of birth control) removed in February b/c I wasnt feeling very good on it. Decide to just pray for a month while on vaca and then start something when we got back from Florida. BUT God had a different plan for us:) We went to the doctor today and we are due November 17. We are very excited and now are for sure going to do something permanant after this baby is born. I am so glad that God is in charge and not me. For I know the plans I have for you, this verse keeps playing in my mind when I think of our new adventure. More to come.........................
