Bear Lake Dreams

The important question here is: What have we been doing with our summers if we haven't been going to Bear Lake?
Its unsettling.

This little nugget loves the sand and the water.

These kids spent most of the day building a hot tub, of course.
It was a lot of digging.  and digging.

Babies in diapers ranks high.

Leo and Moe having important conversations.

Everyone should have a sand soda holder.
The sun was too bright for Polly to know I was taking her picture.

Sunburns, beach hair and raspberry milkshakes.
Bear Lake has been dreamy.

I finally wrote a post about Leo on his blog.  I'm going to try really hard to update this one too.  Baby steps.

Leo update

Leo is doing well so far.  It's a bummer to see how much he's been poked and how much he has to be hooked up to,  but we know it's not much compared to what's coming.

His first heart surgery is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. It should take about 6 hours.  We are holding him as much as we can before then. 

He is absolutely beautiful and we love him a whole bunch. 

We feel so blessed that he is here safely and so far no surprises.  

(Super sorry if you have tried to call, I have zero service on my phone.)

 Leo made it into the world!  And he waited 39 weeks!!! He is a champ already.
He has light red hair just like Macy did and I think I spotted a dimple.  I got to hold him for a few minutes. Right now he is with Scott getting settled at Primary Children's Hospital.

Sorry no pictures.     I'll try get some ASAP.


This was my fortune from Tuesday nights Chinese dinner!

Leo's Blog

I started Leo his own blog.
Some friends and family have asked how they can stay updated on what's going on. So here it is.

Hopefully I'll have a way to post while Leo and I are in SLC.
His due date is getting closer and I am trying to enjoy this life we have now.
I know it's going to change soon and I hope everyone (the kids) adjust o.k.
The last time we met with the Pediatric Cardiologist he told us, 
"No matter how hard you think this is going to be, it's going to be harder."

Gulp and blink.

I could have used some more encouraging words, but I think he is trying to prepare us, which I appreciate.

And a big thanks for everyone's kind words and support!
