A much needed update...

Okay, lots has happened since Kynna's 2nd Birthday. I am now finished work. My last day was Aug. 24, 2007...and I am very happy about it! I have not looked back, and never will. Too many silly things going on there. To keep it short and sweet...I will never set foot in the building again!

Enough of that though. We went on our first family vacation of the year(back in August). We took Kynna camping. We decided it was time to upgrade from a tent to a tent trailer. We got a 2007 Starcraft RT. It was so nice to have a home away from home! I don't know why we didn't do it earlier. It makes camping with a child much easier...and with the 2nd one coming next year will prove to be a challenge but not as bad as if we tent it.

Kynna loved camping! We went with Grandma and Grandpa Ully. And throughout the weekend had lots of visitors; Aunt Daina, Grandma Boo, Uncle Dev, Grandma and Papa Hovan, Auntie Di, and Kayla.

In September Kynna, Grandma Hovan, Auntie Di, and I went to visit my older sister in Logan, Utah. Kynna had a blast playing with her niece, Eliza, and her two nephews, Daniel, and Rainey. Chrissy and Jake took us all over the place. It was a tiring week but well worth it!

We went to the Salt Lake Temple, and had the chance to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir practice. We went to this historical place where we learned what it might have been like to live back in the time of the pioneers. They had a petting zoo where Kynna and Daniel chased some chickens. Kynna even got to pet a real live turkey. We went on a few bike rides, and spent way too much time shopping and spending money.

When we got home there was lots of cleaning to do. But laundry got done, the house got organized, and we settled back into our old routine. Kynna found her love for corn on the cob, decided she was a "cowboy", and played in the rain.

Now that we are all caught up on the last 2 months...I am enjoying my time with Kynna now that I am home. I wouldn't change it for the world. She has grown so much, learned so much, and each and everyday is another adventure.

I am now 27 weeks pregnant...not long now. I am slowly trying to prepare our family for the arrival of this one. We have two names picked out but won't make the final decision until we see what see looks like. It has been cute watching Makynna lift up her shirt and tell people that her baby sister is in her tummy. I think it will be quite a shock to her when her mommy time comes to a brief halt with the arrival of this one but I know she will be a fantastic big sister!
