Pregnancy Update: 25 Weeks

We had a doctor's appointment on Monday. The doctor did an ultrasound, so we had an opportunity to see the baby! Everything looked fine; heart beating, spine growing, etc. The baby is positioned sideways, so it is on my right side. The doctor expects that baby will move into place. In the picture below, the head is on the right and the body on the left. You can see the heart and spinal cord.

Niagara Falls Vacation (Day 2)

Saturday morning we took a ride on the Maid of the Mist, located on the Niagara river. After boarding the boat, we took a ride past the American Falls and toward the Canadian Falls. The ride gave us a real sense of the strength of the falls. It was very windy and there was a lot of mist in the air.

In an attempt to stay dry, they provided us with a poncho for the ride. It helped a little, but we were all a little wet after the ride.
Saturday afternoon we traveled a few miles north to some wineries. Actually, we drove several miles out of the way looking for a gas station before we were able to locate the wineries. We visited 4 wineries and sampled the speciality icewines. To make icewines, the grapes are frozen on the vine when picked & crushed. This method produces a very sweet wine. Tim & I bought a bottle that we will enjoy later this year after the baby is born!
Saturday evening we found our way to the Beer Garden on Cliffton Hill to meet some new friends. These ladies were having a girls night out, and were very drunk. They seemed to keep telling us the same stories and asking the same questions. "Have you seen the lights?" "Where are you staying?" "We are corrections officers from Buffalo." They even sang Bob Seger on the karaoke stage, it wasn't very good.

After some liquid encouragement, Ted & Tim sang "Sweet Caroline" and "Brandy".

Ted and Denise also sang a few songs; "John Deere Green" and "Islands in the Stream." After approximately 5 hours and at least 5 pitchers of Molson (I lost count), we finally left the Beer Garden and called it an evening.

Niagara Falls Vacation (Day 1)

Tim & I, along with Ted & Denise, went to Niagara Falls for a weekend vacation on May 15th. We arrived on Thursday evening and had a nice dinner before we went to bed. Friday, we went to see the falls.

The Canadian Falls

Tim & I in front of the Falls. The combination of temperature, mist, & wind made it very cold standing next to the Canadian Falls.

I loved the tulips! They were surrounding the sidewalks & park.

Cinco De Mayo

The Cinco De Mayo party was on Saturday, May 9th. Unfortunately, not many people were dressed for the occasion, well... except for the Bergman family. Tony arrived as the modern Mexican with a bandana & Fu Manchu. Not wanting Tony to be left out, Tim ran upstairs to trim his whiskers into a Fu Manchu. Josie told both her dad & uncle Tim, "You look silly."
