oh, yeah....we have an announcement!

 Henry baby #3 is due at the end of August 2013!

16 1/2 week baby bump.

 Then at our 17 week ultrasound, we found out we're having a girl!  What a surprise!  We could hardly believe it, but are having so much fun planning for our newest member of the Henry family.  The big brothers are super excited too!  We can't wait until August!

girls weekend

 On the weekend of March 8-10, 2013, the ladies from our Bible study group escaped for a weekend away (no kids!).

 As you might imagine, we were a little excited!  ;)

 Plus the sunset was beautiful & the weather was nice!

 This may have been the only time we made it down to the beach.  What can we say?!  We ate, slept, shopped, talked & played board games.  We're that cool!

 Extreme close up!

 Stephanie, Katrina, Amy & Monika.

What a perfect & much needed retreat from reality!  Thank you Gibson family for sharing your condo with us!

riverplay park

 We met our friends, the Williamses, at Riverplay Park for some outdoor fun!

Our sweet friend, Alma West!

 Cedar's in the phase of "Take my picture!"

 Finley loves Alma & likes to try to teach her new things!  He was cheering her on on the slide!

 Then the boys found a mud puddle (while Alma was napping at our house).

 Naturally, a bath was in order.

Bubbles make bath time so much fun!

 We took advantage of Christmas break & took a family hike up Spencer's Butte.

I was excited to try out my new camera & lenses!

 The boys were excited that we brought giant lollipops for the hike!

Unfortunately, Cedar ignored my advice & jumped off a log.  He was very disappointed to slip & fall to his knees, getting his pants & hands very muddy.  :(  He whined for the next 10 minutes or so that he wanted to change his pants.  :\

 We made it to the top!

 We cooled down very quickly!

Another hiker offered to take our photo.  I'm glad we got one last happy shot before more whining began.  Finn also slipped & fell into a mud puddle.  His shoes & gloves were soaked & he got VERY cold.  We were all happy when we made it back to the heater in our car.  ;)

christmas break randomness

 Memaw & Papa came over to our house to see it all decorated for Christmas before we took our tree down.

The boys showed off their stocking stuffer: Pluto Putty!

 We met up with the whole extended Hecht family for Bumper cars!!  So many sweet smiles, I couldn't leave any photos out.  Here they are:

 The "big kids" took a turn too!
