neglecting not our sweet gift number two, or in other words, we are having a............

today, we were given exciting news.........
but we wanted this day to be extra special and so we decided to have the ultra-sound technician *not* tell us the gender of the baby. Instead, she placed the results in an envelope and we headed from there to pick out an outfit for both genders. We placed the items on the counter and asked the employee to look in the envelope at the results from the ultrasound, wrap up the coordinating outfit, and charge our card.............
all without us being able so see.
And then we left with a wrapped package and headed out to the coast.
And then we did this.............
and found out we are having another sweet, sweet boy!
we are so thrilled and are overwhelmed at God's grace and mercy to us in this gift..........
we spent the rest of the day enjoying God's beautiful creation at Cannon Beach, the most gorgeous weather ever, and looking at the sand between our toes...........

it was quite the day of sweet, sweet memories............
Little boy, we love you and cannot wait to meet you in November!
