MN Celebrations!

We are having a blast here in MN of course!  We have seen so many fun people and been so busy!!  We arrived on Wednesday and I got to have Caribou with (L to R) Jes, Mom, Kim, little Joy, Me, Dawn and Ky!  We had fun chatting and catching up but it's just never enough time!
Last night my parents had a farewell David, congrats on Baby Blom party/open house for us!  We we talking with our friends and family for about 5 hours straight and loved every minute of it!!!  We were so busy talking with the 50+ people that showed up we really didn't take any pictures.  The two that my mom took are above where Wrigley was so wiped out and below with some of our favorite people, Nate and Tiff!
Today we were able to visit Kim at her new job at the St. Paul Children's Hospital and enjoyed seeing her office and having lunch with her, Nathan and the family.
A blessing that's coming tomorrow... we got a call from the Robinsdale Women's Center.  They are training new volunteers on the ultra sound machine and want to use me as a test bunny!  They asked if I would volunteer to get an ultra sound tomorrow... Ummm, DUH!!  They guy teaching the sonographers has 20 years of experience and we will know the sex of BB TOMORROW!!!!!  Can't wait to share the good news with you guys!!  What a blessing of finding out the sex before David leaves and while we are with two of four grandparents!

The Broadmoor

Last weekend when David came home we celebrated his return by staying a night at the Broadmoor!  It was so much fun to "get away" and enjoy a new/historical part of Colorado Springs!
We checked in and the concierge saw that the mini frig was a little dirty.  The manager sent us a hand written apology along with some nuts and a bottle of wine!  It was a nice little treat but... we had to save the wine until after Baby Blom :)

Here's a quick look at our beautiful room!

Here we are enjoying the grounds of the hotel after our dinner at the Summit restaurant.  The Broadmoor has fire pits throughout the grounds, paddle boats on this lake in the back ground and a lot of restaurants and bars to choose from.  It was a beautiful place to stay and we enjoyed being together.

Rockford Rockin' Good Times

David and I are relaxing at the Blomgren's on their four season porch!  We have had a really great vacation so far.  We took our drive to IL in two spurts driving on Thursday night after work about 8 hours to Kearney, NE and finished it off on Friday evening.  I have to say, I still do not enjoy road trips... especially 16 hour ones :)  One of the fun things about the trip is listening to books on tape!  To and from work I have been listening to Through Gates of Splendor by Elizabeth Elliot.  The book helped me understand the story of her husband Jim Elliot and their journey with the Auca Indians.  I was always under the assumption that Jim and the other four men just landed by the Auca's territory and were killed.  Their story is so much deeper, one of love for these lost Indians and a passion to help them come to know God.
I also started the book My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult and so far, I am very intrigued!  I am going to try out a book club this coming month and this is the chosen book. 
Back to our trip!  Since we've been here we've managed to see grandparents, attend a family wedding, sleep in, have all the Blomgren's together (this hasn't happened in almost two years and I'm talking just the immediate family!), have all three "granddogs" meet/play/fight and eat some good home cooked meals.  We have had a wonderful time and are planning on continuing that tonight at the Cubs game!!

Useless Training

Far left.

Pregnancy Brain?

On Sunday I went to find the milk for some cereal and I just couldn't find it! I called David into the kitchen to look (sometimes I just miss the most obvious things). He couldn't find it either, it was the weirdest thing! But then a few minutes later I decided I would just eat some dry cereal and I found the milk! I had put it in the pantry the day before!! Ewww. I unfortunately had to throw it out - look how full it was too! Oh well, it's one of those silly pregnancy brain fart things :)

Staying Connected.

David & I Skyped for the first time yesterday since he left for training!  We are praying this is the way we will get to talk everyday once he gets to Iraq!  God is so good and gracious and we are thankful we are blessed with this technology.

The night before David left for training Wrigley and I helped get him ready.  With the packing list and highlighter in hand we told David all the stuff he needed!
We were both sad to see David pack up!
Some of the gear (there was a lot of gear). Flack vest (very heavy), helmet, medical kit, canteen and one of three bags he had to pack.
A few pieces of some ABU's and BDU's!

We miss you David!  Can't wait to see you in two weeks from today!!!!!!
