This summer we found out we are pregnant ... finally! After much fasting and prayer we feel very blessed that the Lord has sent us this little spirit. Ultrasound pictures showed a healthy, active baby GIRL! Here's Erin at 22 weeks. Over the morning sickness and feeling great in the second trimester, she's excited that people are finally beginning to ask whether she's pregnant (and not just getting fat)! We are anxiously awaiting her arrival in April.

Tillamook Trip

Here are some photos from a recent visit to the Oregon coast where we saw a lighthouse, the octopus tree from Ripley's Believe it or Not, and even hiked among ferns (Dave's favorite). We also visited the Tillamook cheese factory and ate some tasty samples.

We're starting to feel at home here in beautiful Oregon. For Labor Day, we went hiking at Silver Falls, a state park not far from our new home. The 10-mile hike featured spectacular up-close views of 10 gorgeous waterfalls. We were even able to walk behind some of them!

More vacation photos

Summer Vacation!

We've racked up a lot of miles so far this summer. Since we left Provo at the end of June, we've been to Oregon, Mexico, Nebraska, Nauvoo, the Olympic peninsula, and central Washington. Here are some of the photos we've taken along the way.
