In case you missed our announcement, #4 is baking and should be done around March 25th 2013. I'm in my usual state of first trimester nastiness which means the house is mess, there is junk food in my fridge and there won't be a full nights sleep around here for another 2 years.

Other than writing out checks for car registration and insurance and yada yada we have been busy battling our homeowners association otherwise known as the (HOA) about our shed. They basically told us we have 30 days to make it less visible or they are going to remove it ( ha! I highly doubt they would actually do that) But either way we figured why not? We will shell out a few more thousands to cover it up or move it behind the fence because after all we are made of money. We are waiting to hear back from the fence company about the cheapest option. ( You can see the shed in the second picture) The plan I think ( if approved by the HOA is probably to leave the shed where its at and plop a fence and gate in front it it.
But I am excited to say that we are leaving behind the stress of car shopping and buying, and sheds and HOA's to embark on our first ever family camping trip up north in the White Mountains. The kids are beyond excited and we have spent hours planning and buying and preparing food for the trip. All that's left to do is pack the van and leave! I have no doubt that Keira and Israel will enjoy the trip. Not so sure how things will go with the wild and crazy toddler who is a VERY light sleeper. :o) Wish us luck!

She is not my dream when it comes to personality. Can anyone say moody and drama? And we all know how she didn't sleep through the night till after she was a year old. But when it comes to eating she definitely wins the prize.

Nothing says summer like ice cream. I love that so far my kids have had the privilege to grow up surrounded by their cousins on both sides ( except for my brother Mark's kids). After an afternoon of swimming and pizza the kids had ice cream in the backyard. They were making all sorts of goofy faces so I snatched the camera.
