Our Rose Bush

We planted a couple rose bushes this year in front of our house since we already had one and it was actually one of the few things that was able to survive up there.  We were thrilled to have it bloom and look amazing.

Pete's Four-Wheeler

I pulled this bad boy out of the garbage last fall. My dad fixed it up for Pete and he loves it.  Here is a quick video of his fun.  He even decided to ride on this one day instead of going to the zoo!  You know it is fun if he didn't want to go to the zoo for it!

Eleanor "Nora" Marie Call

Nora decided she wanted to come into the world a bit sooner than planned.  On Monday the 16th I woke up at 2 in the morning to contractions every 5 minutes and pretty dang painful.  We ended dropping Pete off with my mom and heading into the hospital around 7 in the morning. I wasn't expecting to be staying and figured they'd tell me to suck it up and come in later, but to my surprise I was at a 6 and 100%, so we were there for the long haul!  We got into a room and I got my epidural rather quickly (luckily) and took a nice nap for awhile while we waited.  Eventually the doctor came in and broke my water which I suddenly ended up being at a 10 within half an hour.  Pretty much everything went a lot faster than it did with Pete.  I pushed for just under an hour and finally our not-so-little girl was bornat 3:17pm!  She weighed in at 10 pound 2 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long and with a full head of dark hair.

Pete Swims and Gets on the News!

It has been so stinking hot lately, though I might be a bit more sensitive to it than most people.  Pete has been dying to go swimming but we haven't made it anywhere this year.  I pulled out his little plastic pool for  him and let the freezing cold well water warm up some during the course of the day.  He had a blast!  While he was swimming I checked facebook and saw that a friend that is the weatherman for a local news station was looking for pictures of people enjoying the warm weather.  I snapped a picture of the boy and sent it to him.  Well it was on the news Thursday night!  How fun! We recorded it and will be saving it onto a disk to save for forever.
Pete wanted to take a picture and hopped out of the pool.

I asked him to smile for me.

This is the picture that made the news!
