New Patio Set and Fire Pit

We went and made some purchases for the patio yesterday (spent a little birthday money). We bought a patio set (table and four chairs) and a fire pit. Today we broke them in. We ate lunch on the table and then found enough fire wood (old limbs from the trees behind the house) to crank the fire pit up this evening and make a few smores. Below are some pictures from our 1st smore cooking experience at our new home.
I kicked back roasting a marshmallow. Still have my going to church clothes on, but wearing them a little more relaxed than when I went to church.

Robin trying the new fire pit out. She was very excited to get the new fire pit and make smores. When she finished eating the 1st smore she said mini-Matthews started kicking. We assume this means that mini-Matthews likes smores.

Robin cutting up a bit.

Robin lost her concentration while roasting this marshmallow!

This one is well done!

Week 17 ...........

Sorry that we have been MIA on the blog posts for a while. With my travel schedule and getting moved into the new house, we have been very busy. We are starting to get settled into our new house and we hope to have pictures of the house soon (as we get everything organized). We thought we would give an update on mini-Matthews at week 17. Robin had an another appointment on Aug. 5th and everything was fine. Robin got to hear the heartbeat again (I was in Missouri). The next appointment is on September 3rd and they will do another ultrasound at that appointment although we are not planning to find out whether it is a boy or a girl (we want to be surprised). So after that appointment, we will have a picture of the baby we can post. In the meantime, you get to see a picture of Robin as she has really begun to "show" the past week or so.
