Family of 3 time...

 I am 38 weeks pregnant! I've had a lot of mixed emotions about going from a family of 3 to 4. I feel a certain amount of time crunch to completely enjoy the time we have together as Seth, Megan, & Scarlett. I have waves of realization, "Holy Crap! I'm having a baby!!". I completely believe my love will "multiply, not divide" when this little boy is placed in my arms.

We had a great May month. Now that it is June I have felt a bit of panic to really get read for this boy to come home and adding a lot of blue in the kids room has helped that panic turn to excitement.

 This is baby cousin Claire. We get to watch Claire about once every week lately. It's been fun to watch Scarlett want to hold and feed her when she's at our place. As well as see Raja's tolerance and love for little ones too, she is a sweet kitty.

Seth has been working 7am - 3:30pm since the end of April. We love having him home earlier in the day!! We like to go driving up in the mountains, and through the canyon. These are a few from a trip to Bridal Veil Falls... Scarlett loved walking through the water and climbing the rocks. I don't know how little ones can stay in that mountain runoff water for soooo long!! It is so cold!

Scarlett got a fat lip from a fall off the kitchen chair. It is incredible that was all that she got from the fall! She went face first into the linolium from standing up on the chair. I thought for sure we'd be off to the emergency dentist when I saw how much blood was in her mouth.
But she made a quick recovery... kids heal like Wolverine!

My Mother's Day lilies. They were so pretty and I enjoyed them for as long as possible.

I have been stressed about getting Scarlett's 2 year pictures done. She's 27 months today. We had a few different shoots booked with local photographers, but I cancelled them each time. I finally figured there is a need for the cutest newborn boy to get photos in a few weeks - so we'll just do a sibling/newborn shoot once he makes his appearance.

One Saturday morning while I was working, Scarlett and Seth went on one of their daddy/daughter outings in the mountains. Seth hiked up with her to this beautiful view and took some photos. Such a sweet husband of mine!! He knew I have been pretty stressed and feeling guilty that I just didn't get photos done sooner. I love that there is hair in her face :) And she's in one of my favorite outfits of hers. All by her daddy..

Seth's 28th Birthday

To celebrate Seth turning 28, we had a campfire out at a park in Provo Canyon! It was a great time to just relax, roast hot dogs and marshmallows and visit with great family and friends. 
 There was tons of soot around the site we chose, Scarlett got really gross and dirty. But we were "camping"! She didn't seem to really mind. She can be such an easy going gal. It's a perfect fire pit though!! Just off Provo trail, trees all around, and perfect logs to sit on around the fire.
 I can't stand the "T" of the font I used for Seth's vinyl sign, but it's the only cricut cartridge I have ;)
 Ari, the beautiful pup, got plenty of chips and snacks from Preston and Scarlett.
 28! Scarlett was very hesitant to share her pink birthday candles for dad's cake - it was pretty funny and surprising!

 Scarlett helped herself to the cake, she loves her sweets. I think she had three (small) pieces.
 Happy Birthday Seth! You are our favorite friend, husband, dad ever!!!
