Image #2 reveals all! I think Jake is going to love having a little bro to play golf with. One more boy to the mix sounds good to us! Due date is still Sept. 6. Of course this little guy's head is already measuring big. That sounds familiar. We got used to our Doctor reading Jake's stats and when it came to head size she said "off the charts as usual!"

We celebrated the news last night by cooking brats on the grill. If it was a girl we were going to have chicken breasts. Hopefully I don't have to explain that one like we had to for Aunt Vicki.

Nikon D60

It's kind of a long story but recently we were gifted with this special surprise. For a long time I've wanted a really nice camera. Not that I don't like my little pocket size point and shoot, this will be really handy capturing Jake while he's on the move. I finally have it out out of the box and am unveiling the manuals, lenses, straps, and dvds. I can't wait to learn what all this camera is capable of. It all seems a little overwhelming right now.
I also can't wait to take lots of pictures of the new baby. I guess this was an early baby gift. Speaking of baby...we find out today if Jake will be having a little bro or sister!

Jake had his first Easter egg hunt on Sunday. I was trying to get a good picture of him and his second cousins. As you can see, Jake was more interested in filling his own basket. He grew up 3 years with his "little man" outfit on.

Grand Rapids Children's Museum

Yesterday we spent the morning at the GRCM with the Henevelds. It was so much fun! A kid's dream, to be able to run and touch everything without getting in trouble. He and Daddy especially enjoyed the bubble exhibit. However, he also enjoys making music. We took a picture of him playing the piano for Nana, his great-grandma who teaches lessons.

Monday we went to Crazy bounce. The pictures didn't turn out as great. Jake had a great time sliding down the giant inflatable slides with Daddy.

We're sad that it's already Friday of Spring Break! It's been a great week at home.
