Introducing...



Grace Emily Call was born on July 20th at 8:03 a.m. She weighed 7 lbs 13 oz and was 20 inches long. The surgery went really well and we are all doing great. Mom and baby are home and brother and sister are very excited about the new addition. Sorry there aren't more details, I will hopefully do another blog soon.

FYI

I just wanted to let you know that I am having a c-section tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. I am ready for Call baby #3 to join the family (we still haven't picked a name). We should be updating as soon as we can with pictures of the baby.

After Sophia got dressed this morning she told her dad, "Look Dad, I look like a movie star." Is she a diva, or what?
Richie is WAY into dinosaurs lately. His dad went down to Salt Lake to sign his contract with Pioneer Theatre Company (oh, yeah, he got cast in PTC's production of Hamlet this fall, YAY!), and he took little Richie with him so he could go to the natural history museum on U of U's campus. He LOVED it.
He is drawing a T-Rex.
Here he is digging for bones.
He asked to go back the next day, he really wanted the whole family to see the museum.
So, wish me luck tomorrow (and for the rest of my life, three kids is a little scary!).

We're Cookin' Now

After a mild June, summer has finally arrived and it is HOT! We are doing our best to keep cool now.

It has been a while, so I have A LOT of pictures to share.
We got Richie a bike for $5 at a yard sale. Yay for yard sales!

Sophia threw her binkies away recently, and I wasn't sure I was ready. It turned out she wasn't actually ready, either, and they were retrieved soon after.
Richie LOVED putting the dinosaurs together that Grandpa Asay sent.
We went to Lagoon last weekend (thanks Bartons! We never could have afforded it without your discount tickets!) Sophia thought the hand stamp was awesome! Both the kids enjoyed the kiddie rides, especially the carousel. They did NOT like rattlesnake rapids, at all, and I did not like the hour and a half wait for that ride either.



The kids love to help make home-made pizza. They help me make the dough, roll out their own crusts and put all the toppings on. It is fun for all of us.

The fireworks were on the 2nd and we went up to the university to watch them. Sophia was not thrilled with the wait, at first...
Then she decided to make up a fireworks dance for us and then Richie joined in and kept us entertained until the fireworks started.

We watched the fireworks with our friends the Batemans. At first Sophia was scared and wanted to go home, but after a while she enjoyed it.

Sophia thinks she is a princess and loves dressing up in her friend's Cinderella costume. She wanted to make sure I got the shoe in the picture, too.

In other news, Richie has been offered a temporary teaching position at Utah State for next year! They keep saying it is only for a year, but we hope it will turn into something long-term. If not, we will figure something out, but for now we are just grateful for the job. I am only a few weeks away from having this baby, and I am feeling anxious and very ready. Hopefully we can update the blog soon after she gets here.
