caramel applicious

Never fear, the Sprick household only kept 1. The rest were split between MOPS and Dustin's work buddies. It was easier than I expected (I have a vague memory of this being very messy?) and we ended up with some plain, some with melted chocolate, and some with chocolate and crushed Heath bars. Mmhmmm!!

we're having a BOY!

Here's our Sunspot3, all tucked up with his knees nearly touching his nose! Future gymnast?? I love that you can see the little toes at the top. All looks well and is growing along fine.

And the bump! I made it 1/2 way and dragged out all my comfy maternity clothes =)

We spent a Sunday afternoon at Lakewood's Cider Days festival recently. There were exhibits of really old agricultural equipment (mini hay balers, mills, engines). Stuff that is totally brilliant in its simplicity, and likely revolutionized farming 'way back when'. The kids got to de-ear corn and grind it, use a leather water pump, and sit on some sweet tractors. They also hit the bounce house, rode the donkeys, stopped by the petting zoo and tooled around on the train a few times. We ran into the Buttons and had some nice unexpected adult conversation amidst the activities. Fresh cider and a funnel cake with Daddy rounded out the afternoon.
