[i LOVE these two!!!]

We went to MN for 2 weeks in early August. We were able to go to two very special birthday parties while we were there...my grandma's 85th and my niece's 1st!!
My mom put together the party for my grandma and it was so great to see almost all of my family while we were in town. The weather was SO beautiful that day--just like my grandma likes it. We had a great afternoon celebrating her!
The next weekend we headed down to Iowa to be with sweet Lainey on her FIRST birthday! Lainey had an ice cream parlor set up in her living room and it was so fun and a perfect way to celebrate such a sweet girl! This was the first time my entire family had been together since Christmas 2010 (thank you, Marine Corps), so it was very nice to have all of us in one place. I asked Claire who she wanted to go to for this picture and she said Sarah, so we just switched babies. :) Claire LOVES her Sarah, we hear about her at least once a day around here!

I know that it could be so much worse. I am not being hospitalized for fluids because I can't keep anything down, I am not laying on the bathroom floor all day, and I have had a few days of feeling like myself. I really don't want to complain, because I am very thankful just to be pregnant and to be bringing another person into our family. But, if you were wondering why I have been missing...that's why. :)
I have lots of pictures to post from our trip to MN, and of our almost 2 year old just being her crazy self, so stick around...I will have updates for you soon!
