Farmer's Market and Pool time

We have had a fun day as a family and with friends and I actually took some pictures.  Aren't you proud? :)
We started out bright and early this morning having a girls morning at the Tower Grove Farmer's Market.  They were giving out $10 vouchers for the first 500 shoppers!  We grabbed up some yummy strawberries for the girls to snack on while the mommy's got to spend their voucher on a new pair of fun earings!  After looking around for a bit, we let the girls (and maybe we participated was really hot out there) splash around in the water fountain. 

This afternoon after a little rest (Mommy and SK took a little nap) we headed over to the house that I nanny at for a little swimming time.  It was hot (did I say that already?) and a perfect day to break in the swimsuits and go cool off. 

(SK said she was pretending she was at the beach and she wanted to lay out and get some sun...)

Sk had a blast and would have swam for a few more hours, but we had to head in to get ready for a date night.  She had one with her buddies at the Log Cabin (where they offer free childcare once a month for Parent's to get a night out).  Mommy and Daddy headed to a fun restaurant in Clayton then a pit stop on the way back to get some pregnancy cravings at the grocery store :)

We are on the countdown now for our big ultrasound day.  3 days!!  We are so excited.  Yesterday, Sk got to feel her baby brother or sister kick for the first time.  It was really fun and she thought it was so funny. 
We head in to the doctor at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday.  I am ready to see our little one.  Very ready.  It will be comforting to hear the heartbeat and see how she/he is growing and all.  We won't be revealing the gender till later that night.  We actually have decided to not find out ourselves while at the ultrasound.  Our plan is to go to the ultrasound and have the technician put the gender on a piece of paper and seal it inside an envelope.  We will then skype with our family that night and let SK open the envelope and be the announcement girl for everyone.  I am really excited to be doing it this way and find out with our family at the same time.  Tuesday afternoon better go quickly though.  And we better make sure the envelope is sealed well.  No need for temptation, right? :)

Alright, off to get some late night snacks and head to bed.
