Pirates, right here on our beach!

We finally decided to decorate the twins' room a pirate theme. We recruited my dad's artistic abilities to draw a picture I found online that we could fill in. Today he came and drew it out for us. Now one of these days I'll get to filling it in...

Fourth of July and Grandpa's House

For the 4th of July, we were lucky enough to be able to make the trip up to Reno to visit Jake's family. I am so sad that I don't have any pictures from the trip but we had a great time visiting and seeing everyone.

After Reno, we headed up to Vancouver, Wa where my Grandpa lives. He is turning 97 on the 26th so I felt it was really important to go see him. We asked lots of questions and had him tell us some awesome stories. While there, we also got to see my cousin Heather, a couple of my aunts and an uncle. It was also awesome seeing my sister, her hubs and their two adorable girls! Shellie and I have made it a tradition to go get her girls' ears pierced together. They really don't cry much... I promise. But the initial cry is pretty heart breaking.

Brinley Bear about 5 minutes after getting her ears pierced!

Grandpa used to play the harmonica and do back flips for us all the time. Since I figured a back flip was out of the question, I asked him to please play us a song on the harmonica. Love my Gramps...

Teeny Weenies

At 16 weeks, we were able to find out that the twins are both boys! We were so certain that they were one of each, second guess was boys. We are so lucky that 99.9% of the time we get to see the babies. They are both still measuring at the same height and weight and the heart beats are around a 2 beat difference. The twins are very active, but it really hasn't kept me from sleeping at night or bothering me. Recently, we've been able to see my stomach move and it is pretty crazy.

The pictures are labeled below and tells you which is Baby A and Baby B.

In some of the videos you can see both of the little guys. They really like to pick on each other on put on a show.

I am at 22 weeks now and still growing strong...
