Twins, Twenty-Seven, Trip to Mountains

I am having twins!! I am sure most of you already know, but I just wanted to share over the blogosphere. We have been to the doctor everything is looking great. We will find out in about 4 weeks if they are boys or girls. We do know they are identical and are secretly hoping for girls to even out our family. Aydan is so excited and always tells everyone there are two babies in my tummy. My tummy... already showing and only 13 weeks. This is weird because when I am pregnant I don't usually show until 20 weeks. I am sadly going to have to break out the maternity clothes this week. I will keep you all updated on the gender of the twins as we find out!!

I turned 27!! Last Saturday, August 22, I turned 27 years old. It was such a fun Birthday to celebrate with my entire family. I feel so much older than 27. After all it is just a number. I feel like I have had too many life experiences to only be 27. I think I have aged at least 10 extra years. So for all of you, that makes me older than all of my friends, 37!! I just wanted to say thanks to my parents and my siblings for celebrating my birthday with us!

Trip to Mountains!! For my Birthday we headed to Breckenridge for a fun weekend with our boys and my family. It was at first just going to be us but then my parents decided to come and before we knew it, Amy and Cory both brought their families. We love going to the mountains. We would seriously live there if we could. Our boys just love going there and spending time with their cousins and enjoying the outdoors. I don't know where my boys got it, but they are obsessed with being outside. It is just a new adventure every time. Our first adventure in the mountains was to the Alpine Slide. I love the alpine slide and I was not going to let being pregnant stop me from heading down the mountain. We all paired up with a kid got to take a trip down. Aydan went up with me on the chair lift and I think that was the scariest part. He was holding on for dear life and I am a little scared of chair lifts so I had to be brave for him. He loved the slide. He wanted to go faster the entire time. At one point someone was going to catch up and he didn't like that so we hurried down. At the bottom Aaron waited to take his turn and took pictures of everyone coming down. It is nice to catch those moments. I will post pictures as soon as I get them unloaded from the camera. After the alpine slide, we went to the river in the center of Breckenridge. It was ice cold but the kids just loved jumping from rock to rock and playing in the water. We got to take a really cute picture of our family... to come later! That afternoon just the girls, Tiffany, Amy, my mom and I all got to take a short shopping trip, it was nice to leave the kids for a little while. That night we went out to dinner for mine and Cory's Birthdays - turned 33. So much fun, just adults. I loved the entire weekend of games and food and more food!!
