Trip to the Snow

So we aren't great bloggers yet. We forgot our camera this weekend on our trip up to the mountains. But - I found these pictures of our friends Melinda and Stephen from last year and thought they would at least tell somewhat of the story. We headed up to the Sierra's on Saturday afternoon. There was about 3 feet more snow on the deck since we had been there 2 weeks ago. It was Palmer's first trip up to the snow this year and needless to say he was a bit excited.
If you check out the snow bank to the right of Stephen, Palmer somehow manages to army crawl his way up to the top of the snow bank to retrieve his frisbee. It's a very funny thing to watch. The good thing is after Palmer plays in the snow for about 15 minutes he is wiped out for the day.
This is the result of just a short time in the snow. He got quite the workout I guess!

He has made FIRE

Chris for the second time in two days has made fire! He is starting to clear the brush, blackberry bushes, and scrub trees around our house.

He's also learned how to use a CHAINSAW!

Meanwhile, Lindsay unpacked the china and put it away in the china cabinet. Thanks everyone for the great wedding presents! We are ready to have you for a nice dinner party now. :)

This is our dining room - taken from the living room.

Here's Palmer being awoken from his nap. He gets lots of exercise up here in Auburn. There are hills here!

It's a......... BOY!

We got the big news on Friday. Here are pictures of our 20 week ultrasound. Sorry the quality isn't the greatest but you get the idea.
Baby's face..
Lips and nose.. kind of looks like a monkey doesn't it?
Baby's feet... :)

Baby flexing his biceps already... what a champ!

Doing squats on mama's bladder most likely..

Baby's profile....

Putting together the house...

So everyone has been asking us for pictures of our new place so we will send them as we get the rooms put together! :)

This is the entry into the baby's room. We've got a lot of furniture already.
Armoire and changing table.

This is the new cafe table set we purchased for our breakfast nook.

Our new home...

So many of you know that we have moved up to Auburn. We are excited to start a new chapter in the Barr book and the first thing was to find a new place to live. Here's a picture of the front of the house.

As you can tell Palmer likes his new home too. He has been barking at every little sound... protecting us from all the bad squirrels and acorns. :)

We are in the process of getting some more furniture and we'll give you some more pictures once it's all set up and looking nice!
