It's a Girl!

Kyle and I got our first glimpse of our baby girl last Friday. She is healthy, very active, and, if I do say so myself, quite photogenic. Because I am of "advanced maternal age," we will have another ultrasound on October 17th, so be sure to save some of your "ooohs" and "aaaaahs" for the next round of photos!

Beat State!

Just a couple Hawkeye fans watching the big game today. Iowa beat Iowa State 17-5 today in the state's biggest annual spectator event. Iowans of all species love their football!

Sweat Equity

Some couples join bowling leagues or take swing dancing lessons to spend quality time together. Us? We bought a run-down piece of real-estate poo with another couple and have spent the last year demolishing, scraping, painting, cleaning, gutting, refinishing, sweating, cursing, and rebuilding a home. We are finally in the home stretch and put it on the market to sell today! I will post more before and after photos soon, but wanted you all to get a taste of the transformation. Oh, and to see where you might be visiting us if it doesn't sell and we end up living here (nervous laugh).
