Smelly Gas

Stephen and I had an interesting night on Friday. Stephen had mowed the yard that day with an old mower but, it worked great. While getting gas for the mower he accidently spilled the container in the bed of his truck. Later that night we went out to eat and came home and smelled the gas in the gagrage and slightly in the house, so he moved the truck out of the garage. A few hours after we had gone to bed Stephen woke me up to ask if I smelled gas. I wasn't really awake and didn't want to be so I said no. About thirty minutes later I woke up told him I did smell gas. The smell had engulfed our house and was getting worse. Stephen realized the lawn mower was leaking and moved it out also. We opened all the windows and were still nervous about the babies so I tried to sleep in the closet because there is no air vent in there. That lasted about thirty minutes and then I decided I needed to sleep on the porch to avoid the smell. The back porch is scary and had a snake before and so that was out. So I sat on the front porch for the next few hours until the smell went away. At 6:45 am our house was finally smelly free. I bet you thought I was going to blog about some other gas. I hope you're not disappointed.

Real Nice!

Our our way back from Oak Dale we spotted this great ride from a 100 yards back and Marcus made sure we caught up with it. Stephen got these close ups of the Caddy. It had a huge flat screen TV inside and on the visors. I wonder if it could hold twins?

Day Trip and CFS

In April Stephen and Marcus came across this cute little restaurant and ice cream/ soda shop on a hunting trip. They came back telling us that they had already had dinner but, Marcus wanted some Chicken Fried Steak (or CFS as he calls it). They thought about splitting one and then thought that may be not the manliest thing to do and so they settled on sitting in the pink soda shop, in their camo, drinking milk shakes. Dina and I thought that was a great mental picture and wanted to see this place and so yesterday we went out there for dinner.

The restaurant is an old house and the Soda Shop was the Oak Dale Community Center, the owners moved them to their current location. Behind the restaurant they are building a saloon, general store, and sheriff station. They will be a separate eating area, museum, and "jail".

Our Babies

I am going to the doctor every week now and it is so neat because they do a sonogram every time and I get to see the babies. It is amazing to see them grow and move. Next week we get to see the real doctor and have a 3D sonogram. I have always thought those things were scary looking, but now I am excited to see a great picture of them.

This is our 11 week sonogram. "Baby A" is on top and "Baby B" is on the bottom in each picture. The last picture is "Baby B's" heatbeat.
