Father's Day was pretty low key as most of us were sick =(
The boys made Daddy cards and I made french toast, hash browns and eggs for breakfast. We went to church and then came home and did kabobs for lunch. The boys took a nap and when they woke up we did a little Rocking out, and then did Smores over the BBQ.

Wednesday the boys Grama took us to the zoo. The boys had a blast! They each got to ride the camel and Bubba even went all by himself!

Bear was a little freaked out by the camel at first so Grama went with him, but he quickly got used to it and ended up loving it!

I love this zoo because it has a playground for kids that has a whole bunch of educational animal games for the kids to do

The zoo also has an aquarium which is really cool. They had this big fish (no clue what it's called) that Totally looked like a cartoon!

Another highlight was the Carousel (or Carouswheel as Bubba keeps calling it)
we rode it twice

All in all it was a very successful trip to the zoo and we all left with happy, tired faces!

Skip it!

This is "Feel free to skip this post" kind of posts because when it comes to being pregnant this is how I feel:
Could be 9 months, Could be 9 million years ......

When I was pregnant with the boys I LOVED it!! I loved everything about it. Including the morning sickness. All 5-6 months of it. Weird I know but I can't remember NOT loving being pregnant. It was the best 9 months of my life! That's why I was so anxious to have another.

This one, not so much. The only thing I've liked about is that I've lost 20 lbs!
I feel like crap all the time. I'm tired, no, exhausted all the time. I'm grumpy, and moody and emotional and hormonal, and it's all around awful!!

It's like I have this grumpy, angry personality that comes out in the snap of a finger that I have no control of! The last time I felt this out of control of my emotions was in High School (fun times right Mom and Dad?!)

It bugs me!

I can't eat anything. and by anything I mean I'm Pretty much lactose intolerant, which means I can't eat my favorite pregnancy foods. Ice cream (have you ever told a pregnant woman she can't eat ice cream?! More importantly, have you ever told a pregnant woman's husband that she can't have ice cream?! WORSE!!!) Cold cereal, cheese sandwiches....

Can't do apples, or tomatoes....Which means no spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli, Tuna Helper...You get the point!
I can't eat a lot of sugar, I'm talkin a square of chocolate a day. So I have to be super careful as to how much sugar is in something....I haven't had my glucose test done yet,  which if you don't know, that's the test that lets you know if you have Gestational diabetes (which I don't think I have).

It's not fun.

It's annoying.

It's hard to find something to eat that isn't your 20th peanut butter sandwich for the day
I think the most frustrating part is that I'm not enjoying it.  I wanted it so bad and now I can't wait till it's over!

I'm 16 weeks today, which means only 5 months left.

Only a couple weeks till we find out the gender.

Only a couple weeks till I fit my maternity clothes. I'm at the at awkward in between stage, where maternity clothes are to big in the belly, and regular clothes are to tight, although since I've lost so much weight most of my shirts still fit.

Anywho, I'm done whining now so I'll let you know if anything exciting happens!
