So long Michael....

It's official..at 50 years old Michael Jackson has died. I can't say that i loved him but his music was amazing and is still something i listen to today. My friend Shari introduced me to the wonderful songs and dance moves of MJ when i was in about 5th grade, & from then on i was obsessed. In 9th grade we did our talent show dance to thriller, and actually learned the entire music video dance. As a senior in high we did our cheerleading routine to an MJ mix and wore white gloves! MJ will be missed but his music will live on forever!!

Camping at 37 weeks!!

We just got back from our first camping trip of the summer, and it was a BLAST!! We went up to a beautiful campsite near Monte Cristo and stayed there for a few days. Luckily the bad weather held out until about a few hours before we were supposed to leave. We rode the 4 wheelers ( when i got to ride them we were basically moving at 5 miles an hour...poor cj, but thanks for being so patient) everyone brought their guns so we could shoot, roasted marshmellows, and just had a great time being together! Being 37 weeks pregnant and up in the mountains was a challenge but I am so glad I was able to go. A few days before we left I was having contractions...but then they suddenly stopped so we decided i was still good to go and if by chance i went into labor on the trip we would just have to drive really fast to the hospital!! Thanks friends for such a fun trip, I am sure it will be a little while before we can go camping again!
