Another month come and gone...almost :)

Wow, it's hard to believe, another month is almost over.  What a month it's been, we started out July with a family vacation to northern Ohio.  On Tuesday, June 29th our day started like normal, although I had some details to finish in the house, as well as packing for our trip.  I had been feeling slightly...off all week, low and behold we found out that little Daniel is going to be a big brother!  So this was an exciting start to our trip, and we weren't too hush about it either.  So after finding out that there is a new family member on board, we left Cincinnati for our summer vacation.  



While we were house and doggy sitting for Brian's mom and dad, we got to experience many cool things.  Daniel got a pool, we went to the beach, nature walks in the woods as well as the original road to Cedar Point, and we went to Kalahari resort.  The last couple of days we were up north, morning sickness started to kick in, although not all day and night like with Daniel, only occasionally.  



Today is the 25th, I had two excellent days this week, I felt much better on Friday and Saturday, and even ate some things that have been turning my stomach for almost 3 weeks.  I have my next appointment with a midwife on August 3 and will be sure to update everyone.  We are unsure how far along we are, but are guessing somewhere between 8 and 10 weeks., hoping for an early sonogram to verify my due date.




Oh, I almost forgot, 17 days ago my good friend Villie was reunited with her son.  He has been in Bulgaria all his life, and Villie and her family have been trying for about 8 years to get him to the states.  It was so wonderful knowing that they are together again, all of her family.  :)

July Vacation in Sandusky, Ohio

Well, I think our little summer vacation was needed and we sure are having fun.  We had a pretty exciting start to our vacation...but I am not letting the cat out of the bag just yet :).  We are having a wonderful time at Mary and Glenn's house, although we wish they would have been here all week...I know they are having a great time with Jim, Kate and Bob.  Hopefully our family will get to take a trip out to Portland soon.  
While we have been here, we got to see Daniel's godparents Dave and Heather.  It was wonderful to cookout and share fun memories...it was also the first time since Daniel's baptism that he got to see his godparents.  Daniel was a little flirt with Heather, and had lots of fun on their back porch, and terrorizing their home :)
Today we got to see our friend Andy, and we went to the Lake Eerie Beach.  This was the first time Daniel has been to the beach, even if it wasn't the ocean.  We had such a good time I think we are going to try to go back tomorrow.  We still have a couple of things we'd like to do while we are up here, Kalahari and a ferry ride to the islands are at the top of our list.  
I will write a bit more and upload some pictures after we get back from our trip...talk to you all next week!
