April Was FUN!

I opened my phone and quickly typed this up so I wouldn't forget:

Me: Will you throw me a birthday party?

Lily: *thinking* Throw the garbage?

So let's see, what have we been up to...

We've been working a lot, and sleeping a little.  Lily and I have been going swimming a lot during the day.

Our Chrysler has been in and out of the mechanic for the past month, so that means Lance gets to drive our Kia to work and back each day, and Lily and I get stuck at home with no way to go anywhere.

It's not terrible, except that groceries are nonexistent. Lance does a good job running to pick stuff up while I'm working, though.

I would like to be able to plan a menu and get some groceries on my own.  We've eaten way too much fast food lately.

So, since Lily and I can't drive anywhere, we've been having fun by going to the pool every other day.  I'm currently on my third sunburn...  I love it.

Lily has not burned, I'm much better about sunscreening her up.  For me, I just sunscreen my face and chest.

We just found out that we are having a baby girl, and I am so excited!  I've been feeling her a lot lately. It makes me happy.

In April, we had a visit from Elise and Aziz and a visit from Jared and Adree right after.  It was wonderful!  We love our family!

Elise and Aziz wanted to go to Universal, so Lance and I decided to go ahead and get 3-day passes for the three of us so we could join them on two days, and go by ourselves at a future date (which ended up being like a week later).  It was really fun! But, Universal says "no pregnant women" on basically every ride.

I rode them anyway, but, some of them I probably should have not.

Lily's favorite ride was the "monster ride" which means Men in Black. She loved shooting the aliens and spinning.

She's so funny.

Number 12 Grimmauld Place.
Kreacher appears in the window above the door every once and a while. Creepy A.F!

The Knight Bus! The Driver is also there, bantering with the shrunken head.

Diagon Alley. The dragon breathes fire!

Weasleys Wizard Wheezes

Curious George splash pad. Super fun!

The Hogwarts Express

Dr. Seuss Carousel.  Disney would NEVER let their carousel look so crappy. Jus' sayin'.

We also spent a day at the beach. It was a perfect beach day.

Jared and Lance ran a race while Jared and Adree were here. Then we went to the pool and the beach and had a nice relaxing weekend.

I cannot get over his cuteness.

So here are photos the past few weeks....

Did I tell you we've gone swimming a lot?  You should see the tan lines on this girl's bum.

This is when we went by ourselves.

Lily wanted her photo taken by the books.

Daddy and Lily on the Pteranodon Flyers ride.

Turning on a fountain in Hogsmeade.

Lily is really excited to ride the Jurassic Park River Adventure.
Lance was pretending to be scared and Lily pats him on the back and says, "Don't be scared, Dad. There's nice ones!"

Daddy and Lily on the Woodpecker ride.

Lily picked some flowers "for Grandma and Grandpa."

This is my bump. It's a bad angle. And it's bigger than it looks.

How we spend our afternoons.

On our way to find out the gender of baby #2! (It's a girl.)
