Sweethearts Weekend

Corissa's mom and step-dad hosted us at their home for the weekend and then on Monday we drove up to the Grand Canyon for some sight seeing. It was a sunny beautiful day but still only in the 40's. We packed a lunch and ate along the south rim and went for a little hike down Bright Angel Trail. We also went to the Hermit's Rest and saw the Abyss along the way. It was an amazing cliff that was beautifully covered in snow. Then we went to the Watchtower look out and saw the beginning of the Colorado as it enters the Canyon.
We both took Tuesday off work to make it a nice four day weekend and on our way home took the scenic drive from Flagstaff to Sedona and we stopped at Slide Rock along the way.

Greer cabin trip

Our friends invited us up to Greer to hang out in their family's cabin and you can't pass up a chance like this. The cabin is amazing and the snow was awesome too! We headed for a huge hill for some sledding (videos below) and played lots of games, ate tons of yummy food and just relaxed! Thank you to the Clarkson's for the invite!


cute snow bunnies!

16 Week Peek

Today we went in for our second ultrasound
to checkout how baby is doing! Everything is looking great and our baby is growing so fast! Baby Smith is 5 ounces and the heart rate is 150. We were able to see great shots of the spine, arms, legs and face
(Dad says it looked like Skeletor).

Even though you can sometimes see the sex of the baby starting at 15 weeks, Baby Smith was insistent on keeping their legs crossed... must be a sign that it will be a girl.
We will know better at our next appointment four weeks from now.
