Baby Shower

Last weekend we had our baby shower. It was hot, sticky, and eventually wet. Chanda took charge and did great with everything! It was great seeing old friends and family, thanks to all who came and participated! You made it really special for us!

Benton and David



Bottle chugging contest... half of them cheated.

Guess the candy bar in the diaper!

So happy Aunt Kindra and cousin Elsa made it!

Getting ready to open gifts. I never take pictures of "the belly," so here's a profile of it.

Between hand-me-downs from family and gifts from the shower, I'd say we are all set and ready for baby Sawyer to come!

While I'm on the subject, I will give an update on how things are going. We just had a doctor's appt. today and things are going great! We are 37 weeks and the baby is a normal size according to the midwife. We learned that he has dropped after she felt for his head. Apparently the baby is supposed to come two weeks after it drops for first time moms (so says our midwife). If this is the case, then he's set to be born a week before his due date.... wishful thinking? Probably so!

Smithville Lake

Smithville Lake is about our only option for a cheap thrill around here in Missouri, but we love it! It's so much fun taking friends and family out on our little boat! Nate wanted us to take him out to the lake for his birthday, so we did. Here are a few pictures...

This is actually a photo of Slade from last year. I would have taken some of him during this trip... but someone's gotta drive!


Caleb doing tricks...

The boys :)
Later that night we ordered our favorite wings from Pizza Hut: Wing Street... all in all a great night!
