a girl! As Dave put it, Isabelle will have the sister I never had. Now if we could just give Justin the brother Dave never had. . . The baby looks great and it was actually the most entertaining ultrasound i've had. She of course had her stomach down so it was hard to tell the gender. My doctor says he is 95% sure it's a girl and will check again next time. Dr. Beck kept poking at her trying to get her to move and by the end of the ultrasound she was literally doing front flips which was pretty funny to watch. Everything looks healthy and we are just excited to hear that!

Doesn't he look handsome! Dave think he looks like he's 5 now.
At least you can see those beautiful baby browns now!
On a side note, Justin has a fever of 103.5 today! He's acting normal so hopefully it won't turn into anything more and will go away quickly!

I would love to put a picture up of my birthday yesterday but we didn't take any! Instead, here is a picture from October 2004, when I wasn't even thinking about age!

Robyn went with a Patriotic theme.
Isabelle definitely mastered the "maaaa" sound by the time we left!

Now that the weather is so nice all Isabelle wants to do is go outside. I can't say that I blame her! She is very excited to hang out with the dogs and even puts food in their bowl for them!
She also loves to read books and decided to read one to the dogs. I couldn't take the picture fast enough, but right before this Molly was on the other side and it really looked like she was reading the book to both dogs!

I have really been into getting my 3 month food storage supply ready lately so to help me I went to a canning class at Shar's so I could learn to can meats. She always gives out samples of the food and on top of the apple pie she put the yummiest stuff called Spiff-E Whip. I know it sounds like it's from the 1950's but it is so cool! It's basically whip cream that comes in powder form and you just add water. What makes it even better is it is low calorie and zero fat! I used it as a fruit dip the other night and it was so good! I was checking out the website of the people that make it and they actually have an outlet store in Utah that you can place orders through and get all sorts of stuff. I think next time I am up there I will have to stock up!

Last Saturday Dave dragged us to a reptile show in Tucson. Okay, he probably only dragged me because the kids really wanted to go. The kids had a great time looking at all the reptiles etc. and I was just happy to leave there without any new pets! By the time we left it was lunch time and almost nap time so I wanted to eat and then go home hoping that the kids would fall asleep in the car. Dave had other ideas though. He wanted to go to a musuem that he remembered going to when he was little. So without really knowing the name of it or where it was, we set out to go there. Luckily, we ran into a nice Highway Patrolman that gave us great directions. I was totally not prepared for what this place really was. It is called the Arizona Sonoran Desert Musuem. It is pretty much like a zoo but only with Arizonan and Sonoran Desert animals. Justin kept looking for the elephants and I didn't know how to tell him there weren't any there. Luckily there were lots of other things to see! I liked it much better than the Phoenix Zoo because you could get much closer to the animals, they had hidden caves for the kids (and adults) to go through, they had different crafts for the kids to do and lots of other things. We spent hours there and still didn't see everything! The highlight for me was seeing a red Cardinal. I know i'm lame, but I used to teach AZ history and had to learn all of the state symbols so I was excited to finally see the state bird! There was so much to see and do there and I wish I had pictures to post to show you all the cool things but unfortunately we didn't bring the camera so you will just have to take my word for it!
