Party Time

Before we went to Trapp week we got together with Jeff's mom and family to celebrate Ryder and Jeff's birthdays. Ryder requested a swimming party at Grandma's I think he has had one every year there. Yay for warm summer Birthdays!!

Trapp Week 2012

We went to Trapp week the week of fourth of July. It has been about 6 years since we did San Diego. So it was nice for a change of scenery. We stayed in Coronado and had a week of fun with the family. We were small in numbers this year. Grandma Lec, aunt Linda and Uncle Roger and the Jlews and Aunt Patrice were the only die hards with us this year.

The boys did lots of swimming we did lots and lots of relaxing.
The only blow out was out fire works show was a total bust! They accidently let all the fireworks off at once but it wasn't a ton but it damaged the rest for the show. So we watched the Macy's firework special on TV not the same but not a total waste either.

It was nice to have Jeff around for a week and nice to have the help especially feeling so yucky!!

Jeff turned 30 at the end of June!! His work is unfortunately making everyone take furlough Fridays unpaid. Boo. But I think Jeff did enjoy having his Birthday off. We started off the morning with his favorite French toast and bacon.
Later I got us a babysitter and we went to lunch and a movie. It was so nice we went to PF changs. They have great daily lunch specials. Then we went and saw rock of ages. It wasn't our favorite but hey we don't get dates often so we will take what we can get. We ended the night with pizza and ice cream with my parents. It was a great day. Happy Birthday Jeff. We love you so much!!

Alive...nearly well

What a whirlwind the last few months have been! And in true Abby form nothing is as good with out a little story. Feel free to skip. But it must be recorded. Back at the end of May everyone I came in contact with kept asking me are you guys done having kids?? I got a little tired of the same old response of yeah we are good. I started saying some rather blasphemous things like unless an angel visits me or unless I am pregnant with Jesus's baby......then yep the Trapp line will end with four boys here. Low and behold you would think I would have learned by now that I am so not in charge and 2 days after having that conversation with my mom I would find out that we are indeed expecting baby#5. And if you are still with me here goes another story for the record books. I wasn't feeling good at the end of May. Sore throat swollen glands fever chills blah blah blah. This was the third time in a month on this cold so I finally called the doctor. Miracle of all miracles they could squeeze me in that afternoon!! At my appt they took a medical history and wanted to have me pee in a cup and get blood done nor,al stuff for a new patient. I didn't think anything of it at all. The nurse came in talked to me said nothing. Then sent the dr in he says well we know what is wrong with you......your pregnant!! Say what no really that's not funny what is really wrong. No we are serious you are very pregnant. Cue panick attack doctor asking me tom lie down. Asking if I am ok blah blah. All I could say I can't breath and I can't do five boys!! The poor nurse felt so bad this was her first week out of school and on the job. I phoned Jeff ASAP to which he responds it's not mine that's impossible. Thanks so supportive. The next few days involved a lot of fogginess lots of pregnancy tests. Whoa crazy. We couldn't believe it. Still can't some days. It is a total weird thing. It has been a big shock as we have always agreed on four kids but it is starting to sink in. It's funny what we have pictured in our minds for our families to look like. If some one everbtold me this is what my future would have been I never would have believed them. I am due in January and we will find out in a few weeks what we are having. All the old wives tales say girl which they never have before but either way we will love it and I am sure it will fit right in. So there you have it. Where I have been and why there has been zero to blog about. I am so exhausted and there is not a whole lot going around these parts. This being dog sick in the summer stinks the boys have been so patient. Hopefully we will get to leave the house again soon!!
