Setting Up The Pool

We set up the pool at Jenn's house. It was a lot of fun. The kids really enjoyed playing in the pool as it filled with water. I enjoyed it too.

Kids enjoying our version of a water slide.

Mr. Preston Forrest Kruse

Here are a couple of utlrasound pictures of the boy. I did not include the one showing that he is a boy. I let him maintain his privacy.

We will be decorating his room in brown doggies. This is the fabric that we will be going off of.

Crabbing... What an adventure!

Here are some of the pictures from our crabbing adventure.

The men on our boat ready for our life and death sruggle with the crabs.

Jim's face says it all.

Captian I think we have a stow-away.

Lots of crabs had a near death experience, but three lost their lives. Their sacrifice was worth it.

Jim feeding this crab it's last meal. Doritos...Yum!

Found Out What We Are Having!

Today michelle and I went to the doctor for the wonderful untrasound where they tell you the gender of the baby. We were fairly confident that it was a girl. Boy... were we wrong. We are delited to anounce that we will be having our third boy. His name will be Preston Forrest Kruse. The due date is November 4th. We are very excited. Austin was not. He was really hoping for a little sister. Michelle and I have decided boy or girl, this is our last baby. After we found out it was our 3rd son, we are still happy with three children. Check back soon for updated pictures and ultrasound pictures of Preston.

The "Soon To Be" Kruse

Michelle has not been feeling well for about a week. We were trying to determine what was going on with her. We thought we would eliminate some possible answers for the symptoms. So we had Nana pick up a pregnancy test while she was out. Nana got home at about 10:00 pm. Michelle decided that even though you are supposed to take the test in the morning, she would try it at that time. It turns out that the test was broken because it came back with TWO LINES. The test came in a box of two, so she took the other one this morning. It too came back broken. Well maybe they are not broken. Maybe we are going to have another baby. We are SO EXCITED!

Birthdays at Julie's

We are in Iowa visiting Julie because she is having her 3rd baby. While we are here Michelle and Logan celebrated thier birthdays. Here is a few pictures of the party.

Mommy Birthday Fun!!

For those that don't know Michelle and Logan share a birthday. Being the first year that we have had a duel celebration, we tried to be sure that neither got shafted in the cake or present department. Here is Michelle and her cake.

Michelle is a huge fan of pok-a-dots. Julie happen to have birthday candles with pok-a-dots on them. Michelle was sooo excited.
