We like to fish. And hunt. And all of that outdoorsy stuff. We have been fishing a few times this summer, but not as much as we'd like. One day we took the boat and and one day we went to a fish hatchery. Preston liked going on the boat, but was having a hard time catching anything and got bored after a couple hours. Long story short, he ended up hooking Kacey on the nose with a lure because he was swinging it in the water like a wildman.....

Getting ready to go out on the water...

He liked driving the boat. Alot.
The catch of the day!!!!! Not!
This was the catch of the day!!! Pretty Nice!!

And this was our excursion to the fish hatchery. Preston had so much fun and caught 6 fish within a span of about 30 minutes..... We will definitely go back.

Him and his bucket of fish. He was trying to catch them again out of the bucket, it was really funny. And I have mentioned this before, but my child cannot make a normal face in a picture. Must take after Grandma S....... :)

4th O July

We had a really fun fourth....... Friday night we went to the Willard auction and Fireman's Ball but I didn't get any pictures of that. Saturday we went to breakfast with Grandpa and Grandma B and then to the parade. Preston got nailed by a little boy riding his bike in the parade (on the side of the road...).... I was laughting hysterically and everyone probably thought I was a terrible mom for laughing but the confused look on Preston's face was priceless! ( And he didn't get hurt.) But he wasn't as confused as the boy who hit him......LOL

Preston also got to do the sawdust scramble...

He didn't know what to think about getting his face painted

And he got to ride the "airplane"

And last but not least, we got to watch the fireworks from the canal road in Willard. It has become tradition. And Preston actually liked them this year and didn't hide under a blanket.:)

Preston turned Three!!!

It still blows me away that Preston joined us three years ago.. I can't believe it has been that long, and then again I can. This was back at the end of June by the way......

Birthday cake at Grandpa and Grandma B's

Presents from Mom and Dad

One of the presents we got him was bubble blowers..... I am really glad we did. They are awesome!!

Cake at the other party......

And the big present.... A pedal go-cart

He really enjoyed his birthday this year and thanks to all that came and supported him. Although now whenever anyone has a birthday, he seems to think it should be his birthday, too.....:)

Playing Catch-up

Ok, I haven't posted anything interesting in two months. So shoot me. We have been very busy and I am going to do a bunch of posts today, hopefully.
First things first, I am PREGNANT!! Yes, you heard right. As of yesterday he was a pound and a half approx. and growing according to schedule....And I had my glucose test and am OVERJOYED to report that it turned out normal!! No Gestational Diabetes this time... WAHOO!!
How we got him in there you ask?? Well during Christmas time we were taking a break from Chlomid because of problems with ovarian cysts and I was supposed to resume taking it in January.... Long story short, I was giving up and needed a break from hard core baby-making so I decided to sign up for school instead. Kacey wanted to try for three more months and then take a break, so I decided to do that. But my doctor had mentioned a new drug called FEMARA that she had some success with at her office, so I researched it like crazy online and decided I wanted to try it.... Yes, it was the one that costs 90-some odd dollars. I didn't really feel like it worked, no side effects or pain on one side, etc... So the next month rolled around and I took a pregnancy test and of course it was negative so I went through the motions of calling to get Provera (which makes you start your period, if you AREN't pregnant) and proceeded to get my next month of Femara ordered and filled. Waited a week, still negative pregnancy test and no period. This was around the time of the incident in a previous post..... Waited another week still no period. Woke up on a Monday morning, day 49 of my cycle, and took my routine Monday pregnancy test. And it was positive.... And I almost had a heart-attack!! I didn't know what to think so I immediately called Kacey and told him. Even after I went to the doctor I was still freaked out and couldn't believe it was really true that I was pregnant, and we didn't feel absolutely comfortable with it until I was 16 weeks pregnant. So we didn't tell anyone until then....... The fam had mixed reactions to the news and mostly because we waited so long, but I think they are okay now.......
Kacey has been working ALOT lately and I have mixed feelings about it... Obviously we need the money, but I am getting to the point in my pregnancy that I get tired really easily and over-do things often and pay for it the next day......
I started college for the first time back in May and next week is my final!! I can't believe the semester is already over! I only took 2 classes(7 credits) because I wanted to get a feel for what it would be like and see if I could handle it..I actually really enjoyed it! I am planning on going into nursing in the distant future.... It is going to take me a while. And that plan is for me to resume classes spring semester after the baby is born.......
I am going to do several more posts with pictures of what we have been up to this summer, so stay tuned..........
