Sledding in Austria

What a beautiful sunny day we had. I really cherish these days after what seemed like a month of negative temperatures and tons of snow cooped up in our house. We drove about 30 minutes to a ski resort in Laterns, Austria for a day of sledding.
Heading up on the ski lift.

At the top of the mountain. It was about a 10-15 minute ride down.

The view behind Lukas going down. It was so pretty in the trees. It reminded me of Oregon.

All four of us had so much fun going up and down. Looking forward to doing it again.

Little Nelson

Soon the birthdays in our family will fill the months of July, August, September and October. That's right we have another little Nelson on the way.
Our tadpole at 7 weeks.

13 weeks. We had about a 30 minute ultrasound. It was so cool. We saw all the major organs, confirmed 10 fingers and watched it hiccup. These pictures compare closely to Logan's head and facial features.

Erik, Lukas and myself are so excited. Logan has no idea how his life will soon change. Lukas is hoping, "this baby won't break things." He thinks it is a girl, although he makes it perfectly clear to us that he does not like girls :) I think it is a boy. We shall see. I just can't wait for all the more joy that will be added to our family.

Lukas loves to color, paint, stick, you name it. This boy has a creative side. Sometimes I wish I could jump into his imagination to understand just exactly the what he is creating.
A few weeks he brought home this awesome drawing. So proud of his snowman.
