If the second coming was to happen now, would I stay pregnant and deliver in Heaven pain free? Or would the baby just appear?
Can we have more children in Heaven with our husbands, or are we pretty much done and little kids just appear? Don't laugh at me, these are honest questions.
Anyway, just some thoughts that have been running through my head during this pregnancy. The hormones are strong and tears come easy but usually its over a tv commercial or a sweet article in the paper.

They stayed close to the lawn as the rest of the farm is not open to the public during the off season. I had a baby shower to attend and then we went on a quick movie date to see A-Team....I loved it. I grew up with older brothers and usually I just watched what they watched because well they were bigger than me and I thought they were pretty cool. A-Team was a favorite growing up and the movie didn't disappoint.

My apologies for this mass email that is going out to literally everyone on my contact list. Some of you know of my writing endeavors and some don’t, but just so you all know I enjoy writing children’s fiction when I’m not running around working on dams. I’ve recently finished a children’s novel titled “Kevin’s Point of View” and this novel is now posted on Amazon.com in the Kindle section. If you own a Kindle you can download it for the unbelievably low price of $2.99. That’s half of what it cost to eat lunch at most places. “Kevin’s Point of View” is targeted for the 8- to 12-year-old crowd, but many outside of this age group have enjoyed the story.
And if you don’t own a Kindle, but you know someone who does and who might have or know of an 8- to 12-year-old kid who loves to read a good story, I wouldn’t mind if you forwarded this along to them. Even if you don’t own a Kindle you can get a Kindle App for your iPhone or iPad. Any help you might have would be greatly appreciated.
Here’s the link where you can buy the story - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003PPD9DM
Thanks in advance and I hope all of you are having a great start to your summer.
So friends and readers, please go out and download a copy for your very own!!!

We we are back from a 6 day road trip to Colorado to pick up a family heirloom from my brother Del and his family since his kids are too big to use it anymore. It is a Honda MR50 Elsinore Mini bike. The bike below is not our bike but it is a good picture of what the bike looks like when its working.Above is our Mini bike as we call it. My parents bought it back in the early 70's and I'm pretty sure it has been stolen and recovered 3 different times....I think that is pretty incredible. I don't know all the stories but God was involved in its return every time.Right now its not running and my Dad has a friend who use to work on Honda motorcycle engines and is going to hopefully fix it. Fully restored my other brother Bill told me its worth $1200.
We had a fun trip getting to Colorado and spent 2 days in the Denver area with my oldest brother Del and his family and my 2 cousins and their families. The kids, myself, my Mom and my Grandma or G.G. as the kids call her all went on the trip.
We went to the Denver Zoo, Water World, ate at Washington Park Grille, and Casa Bonita, lost Grandma's wallet, lost Mom's blue tooth ear piece, Grandma's wallet was recovered at a Dairy Queen after we left and is being mailed and my Dad found Mom's blue tooth in a coat pocket.

We stayed in the Holiday Inn in Denver and they had the most comfortable beds EVER!! On our way back we stayed at World Mark Wolf Creek in Eden, Utah. Tim's Nana has a timeshare and we were able to book a 2 bedroom plus and it was just wonderful!! We just wish we could have enjoyed the area more. The kids now think that is Nana B's vacation home.....we just let them believe it....why not?

We had a great time and the kids are outstanding travelers!!
