Sonogram 7-7-10

What are we expecting you ask?

  • We are expecting to be tired.
  • We are expecting to be joyful.
  • We are expecting to be parents!

It’s hard to tell, of course, what is in the ultrasound picture, but the x on the left is the tip of the head and the  x on the right is the baby’s bum. 

~The baby is due February 1, 2011.  We are excited!~

Today, Uncle Richard, Janet, and I took a tour of the Cerreto Candy Company in Glendale.  When we walked in it smelled sweet and minty.  On the tour the guide showed us how the chocolate comes to the store: in a 10 lb brick.  Then they melt it and mold it or envelop marshmallows, pretzels, caramels, etc in it.  We even got a complimentary white chocolate covered marshmallow.

Stone Mountain, Georgia


 Stone Mountain Georgia camping 6-15 to 6-21 2008 020Stone_mountain_closeup_mosaic_crop





Jack and I spent the day at Stone Mountain in Atlanta.  The carving is a memorial to Confederate President Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee, and General Stonewall Jackson.  The carving is bigger than the carvings at Mount Rushmore.

We took a skyride to the top and enjoyed the view.  When back at the bottom, we walked around and saw some glass blowing and a candy shop.  It started to rain a bit and we walked through a self guided walking tour of the plantation buildings.

It is surprisingly humid here (only because I am so used to Phoenix’s dry dry heat), but it cools off at night and has such a nice breeze.

What a fun trip!
