Austin Texas

This view was just amazing I didn't want to leave.

Who's are bigger the Cannon or Gerret's?

This is the view from Mt. Bonnell I would love a piece of land over looking that! This was at Oasis resturant the place to watch the sunsets it was beautiful

The Capital building of Austin, It really is bigger than our nations capital

The view from Barton Spring on our canoe

Gerret and I haven't had a ton of time to explore Texas and we love traveling and venturing out to new areas. So Gerret decided this would be a great weekend to go I wasn't gonna argue with a trip out of town. We were very lucky to find a cheap hotel room off of price line. love that website! for $40 a night at a double tree Awesome we were excited. We had a great list from family and friends telling us what we had to do when we were there and restaurants to eat at. amazing suggestions that were so much fun thank you so much.

We went canoing on Barton Springs were they had plenty of snapping turtles and swans and all sorts of fish, Hiking at Zelik Park, and checked out the view at Mt Bonnell over lake Travis which was absolutely beautiful. toured the capitals Congress that is an amazing building. We enjoyed lots of yummy food at the Oasis restaurant that over looks Lake Travis and gives you this feeling like you not even in Texas. Had breakfast at Omeletree a very Hippie and natural breakfast cafe really good though. Of course we had to have dessert somewhere so we went to Amys ice cream kinda like Cold stone but way cheaper and very yummy. It was so nice to get away for a few days. Austin is a beautiful part of Texas to visit with lots of outdoor activities that is surrounded with hills, lakes and rivers I highly recommend visiting;) Thanks Babe for a great weekend getaway. Got take advantage of that while I still can!

Drum Roll Please ?!?!?!?!?!?!?

We went to the Dr today to do our 20 week ultrasounds where they check for any abnormalities and scan and measure all the body parts see if that little person is healthy and all, oh and find out if it is a boy or girl.

It's a BOY!!!!

We are soooooo excited. I will admit I totally thought it was gonna be a girl ever since I found out I was Preggo, my first initial feeling was it's a girl. today I was told differently and I couldn't be happier about it. I am happy he is healthy and the Dr said everything looks great. During the ultrasound he wouldn't stop moving around so he was being a little tricky on the Dr when it came time to see the sex. So we don't have a very good picture of him to show. He seems to be a squirmy little guy. I have yet to really feel him and have that distinguished, yup that was it feeling, but I know once I feel it at one point I am gonna wish he would just sit still. Until then i will just keep woundering.
We are SO grateful for this amazing blessing in our lives and we look forward to meeting the little man that's gonna steal our hearts!
