It's a GIRL!!

Wow, I'm still in shock.. I can't believe we're having a GIRL! Actually, I had a feeling all along that it was a girl.. but today's ultrasound confirmed it. Drew is so excited! He will have a blast with a sweet little girl and he will definitely wrapped around her finger. I cried when we found out.. I'm not sure if it was out of fear or joy. Both. I'm warming up to the idea though and can't wait to start preparing for (gasp) a daughter!

We told Brett that he was going to have a little sister. We asked him "do you want a sister?" and he said   "no, my want a car!" Here we go!!

Seaside, Florida Fun in the Sun!

Our week in Florida was wonderful! Tropical Storm Lee moved out on the Monday that we arrived and the next four days were sunny and mild. Seaside is a beautiful place. I knew that the Destin area offered white sand beaches and emerald colored water but I didn't believe it would be so pretty! We will definitely be back for another family vacation :)

The kiddos had a great time playing in the sand and definitely wore us out! But, we made great memories and that's worth all the effort. We had some great meals at local, Seaside hot spots and enjoyed the area so much. We can't wait to go back!

We had a great trip! We missed Brett but also enjoyed flying, taking the train to and from O'Hare, sleeping in, touring Chicago and having fun with friends "kid free."
