I know I have been slacking on my blogging. I seem to have lost all my energy. I figured since I am now into my second trimester maybe I would start feeling that "pregnancy glow". Apparently not yet. I still nap almost daily and am usually in bed by 8:30 or 9. I don't think I was ever this tired with my other pregnancies. I guess maybe I am getting older!

We had a really nice weekend. Friday evening we spent at my brother's house with his family, my sisters family and my mother. We celebrated birthdays and had a really good time being outside. The kids always have a good time with their cousins.

Saturday was a little lazy. I went garage saling in the morning and then came home with a headache and slept for a couple hours. In the afternoon we went on a hike with the 3 younger kids. The weather was perfect and the kids had fun picking up sticks and jumping over mud puddles.Check out this leaf. Can anyone tell me what is on it? I thought it was little cocoons but it is hard to tell. They are completely attached to the leaf. Almost every leaf had some on it. The tree next to it was the same kind of tree and it didn't have any on it. Very strange.Saturday night we ate with my step-brother at Outback. We treated ourselves to a fancy dinner. It was delicious! Sunday we got lots of work done. All of our pets are happy because Will cleaned the newt, cat box and fish aquarium and I (sorta) cleaned out the chicken house. Tony is still in love with the chickens. He likes to sit at the fence and feed them grass and weeds.

Did you say you guys ate your step-brother at the Outback? I didn't know he was on the menu. I just talked to him on the phone and he seemed fine. :)

Sara~I was laughing so hard when I read your comment I had tears in my eyes. Obviously I fixed my typo!
