Family Outing

We took a family trip to Long Beach this week and went to the Aquarium of the Pacific. Silas didn't know so much fun could be had in one short day. It was a lot of fun and a day of many funny Silas faces. After the aquarium, we went to an Italian restaurant and got delicious lunch and finished off the day with a short visit to the beach. I told Brandon that taking me to an aquarium with Silas makes me a much better companion because I'm more entertained by Silas than fish. But I have to say that I was impressed with the fish, too. I also had a really good laugh when a lorikeet bird pooped on Brandon's shoulder. I've got the best family.

21 weeks - baby boy!

Life has been very busy for us lately which is why it took a little while for us to get around to a blog update. I would imagine that the reason that most of you are here is to find out if we are having a boy or girl. Well, the title kinda spoiled it didn't it?
We are excited to have another little boy in our house and for Silas to have a little brother. I am sure Silas will love him, care for him, bother him, and get him into trouble. That is what big brothers do, right?
As you can see from the pictures, Silas is definitely a little California boy. He LOVES going to pick lemons and oranges. Kristin and I stepped outside for a minute and before we knew it, he was off for the tree with his basket. It is pretty fun having a little guy around who watches so closely and "helps" in so many ways. He likes to try to water the plants, pull weeds, juice oranges, and most other things he sees us doing. We look forward to what life will be like with 2 boys running around. It will be fun for us to see how they are alike and how they are diferent.
