Our Family Vacation and Other Updates

So, we've had a really busy month....We went on a family vacation towards the beginning of the month, and I've just gotten around to downloading the pictures! Anyway, I'm sure that most of you who read this blog have already heard, but we found out at the end of last month that we are expecting another baby (due October 29th)! (So, pregnancy nausea and tiredness combined with traveling and having relatives in town has certainly given me little time on the computer!) We were, of course, surprised, but also very excited. Elle will be a little over two when the new baby is born, and we've always talked about two years being a good gap in between kids. So, I guess, as always, God's plan was better than ours, and we can't wait to meet this new blessing in our family! Here is a picture of Elle with her new shirt (we used it to tell some of our family members the big news) although she has no idea what it means:As I mentioned before, we went to Florida for Kyle's vacation earlier in the month, and it was a fun and relaxing week. We left early on a Friday because it had been snowing all day in Louisville, and we were afraid we would get stuck in the city if we didn't leave right away. Louisville ended up getting over a foot of snow, so were glad we got out when we did. My sister, Tarolyn, and her husband, Dan, were wonderful hosts, and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to spend more time with them and their two boys, Carter and Grant. In addition to spending time at the beach and just hanging out around the house, we went to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom (thanks, Aunt Tarolyn!). Elle had a blast and especially loved the shows at Animal Kingdom (Both the Lion King and Nemo shows are seriously awesome, if you have the chance to go!) She also loved playing with her cousins and really like following Carter (4) around and trying to play with the same toys as him. Tarolyn would, of course, love for us to move down there when Kyle is done, so she did her part to convince us of how great it is to live in Florida. Kyle says it's at least on the list of places to look for jobs, so we'll have to see what the future holds! I will say, it was nice to go from snow to a beautiful 70 degrees! Here are some pictures from our trip:
