Pregnancy update

I'm 13 weeks along now. Still not feeling great but I have done this enough times now that I know its par for the course. Doesn't make it any easier but its the truth nevertheless. After this week I can say goodbye to the evil first trimester. Yesterday I had my first appointment with my midwife and we heard the tiny little fetal heart rate of 148. Beautiful sound.  We also scheduled my ultrasound for August 7th!!!!! The ultrasound is my favorite part. I LOVE finding out what the sex of the baby is early.  A die hard planner that hates surprises I will never be team green! This time though some friends of ours are doing a gender reveal party ( their 7th baby) the day after our ultrasound so we thought it would be fun to do a double gender reveal.  Mike and I will find out the sex of the baby at the ultrasound August 7th but the kids and everyone else won't find out till August 8th. Looking forward to this!

Ste Maries Father/ son camping trip 2015

 Mike took Israel a few years ago on this trip when he was 2 1/2 but for whatever reason they haven't gone the past few years. This year it worked out. Uncle Matt and cousin Joe and Pepere went along too. They all shared a trailer on site and had a great time. As it always does on this weekend, it did rain late Sat night but the rest of the weekend the weather was fabulous and Israel had so much fun. Its a beautiful campground surrounded by 2 sparkling mountain rivers and gorgeous views of the White Mountains. There was lots of boy stuff like baseball, bike riding, river tubing, bottle rockets. There is even an outdoor Mass Saturday night. The girls were NOT happy they had to stay home with me ( Samuel too) but I am grateful the boys had this special time together.

This is the reality of pregnancy   the first trimester. Israel took this photo of me. This is what I do all day while watching 3 kids.  Its rough to say the least.

This picture is just for show.... to show the belly @ 10 weeks. Baby #5 you have a belly seconds after you get the + test.

First trip to Canobie Lake Park

 Their first trip to ANY amusement park actually. They weren't even sure what "rides" were. Everyone except Israel was very timid at first.  Israel REALLY enjoyed the water rides. It was 90 and sunny so it was the perfect day to get wet. Mikes work had a family day at the park, meaning they paid for everything and gave us lunch. We had so much fun. Thank you Allegro!
