Rodeo 2010

We finally got to take Matthew to the Rodeo this past weekend. We tried earlier in the week but with over 2 million people visiting it within 3 weeks this year, traffic and parking was horrendous. Matthew had a blast with the animals but the highlight for him this year was the pony ride. He felt like such a big boy riding by himself and he didn't fuss too bad when he had to get off. he mostly got frustrated because they kept stopping so they could take photos of the other kids. we wish he could have gone again but after standing in like for about a half hour and paying 6 bucks for the first ride, He'll just have to wait till next year.

It's A Boy!!

We took Lei yesterday to get a Sonogram to make sure everything was OK with the baby after the accident. Thankfully everything just fine which was a relief. And we were able to find out that we are having another boy! We are so excited to have another boy and give Matthew a Lil brother to play with. Matthew thought the sonogram was "amazing" for about 5 seconds, after which he proceeded to climb up on the chair to look out the window. ooh boy.

Damaged Goods

Our poor sentra was rear-ended while Lei stopped at a red light. To make matters worse, the other driver is claiming that Lei reversed into her! Sadly the car that was stopped next to her at the light didn't stick around to be a witness. Gladly, other than a sore neck, Leilani is OK. The bumber on the sentra, not so well.

This all happened yesterday 3/16, at about 12:30pm . I filed claims with our insurance, Geico and the other vehicles insurance, Farmers ins, that same afternoon. By this morning Geico had already taken recorded statements from both drivers and made their liability decision that we is Not At Fault. Farmers, on the other hand has yet to even assign a liability adjuster. Just another reason why we insure with the Gecko

5 1/2 months to go

**POST EDIT: Apparently it needs to be clarified that it is 5 months to go, not 5 children to go. (That was an overwhelming thought first thing this morning.) I am SO excited to be having another baby, and I can't wait to find out whether I am having a boy or girl at the end of the month. The pregnancy is going really well and we will keep everyone updated with lots of pictures I'm sure. I will try and write some posts as well with lots (or some) pregnancy details. -Leilani**

WE ARE HAVING A BABY! Yup, Lei is almost 4 months pregnant with our number 2. We are really excited and cant wait. I wanted to post something earlier but its been hard to get Lei to take pictures. I finally got her to pose for me today.

Skater boy

Skateboard! Skate 1

We've been lucky the last week or so, to enjoy some nice days outside. One of Matthews new favorite things to do is Skateboard to check the mail. After a few times he is finally starting to get the hang of pushing it by himself.
