Friday we went to the Hogle Zoo and Kris got to come with us. She said she hadn't been to the Zoo since her boys were little and still in strollers. We love the zoo. Emma has been asking to go since the middle of January. She loves seeing the animals. Sorry these pictures are a little out of order because some came from our camera and some came from Kris's camera, but its a major pain in the butt to try to move them around on here.  Friday was an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day. The weather was totally sunny and about 70 degrees. The Zoo wasn't too busy thankfully.  

Emma didn't like the statues of the animals too much. She preferred to see the real ones :)

We hadn't been to the Rocky Shores Exhibit until this year and I think it is my favorite part of the zoo now. I loved seeing the seals and sea lion and the polar bear. Its been some years since we had seen any bears at the zoo. 



This Polar Bear was make entirely out of Legos. Brock was thoroughly impressed. He loves legos.

Every time a seal swam right by the glass when Emma had her hand up, she thought she actually touched the seal. She had so much fun watching them. They were very playful and active.

Emma was watching the Polar Bear swimming right in front of her.
This girl spent half of the time walking through the Zoo asking to ride the Merry-Go-Round, which she eventually got to do twice. Once with Mugga and once with Daddy.

Our Family of 3-1/2 in front of the Zoo.  :)

Can't wait to go back next year. We will have an 11 month old in tow as well :)


Just another preggo check up...

Today I had another check up. Baby is still head down and she is faced backwards so we couldn't seen her face on the ultrasound. Measuring almost 6 lbs. Did a cervical check today, dialated to a 1 and 50% effaced. Hopefully next week we will be able to schedule our induction date. Dr says she seems to have quite a bit of hair. So excited to get this little girl here. Friday we get to take Emma to the zoo. She is so excited to go, she asks every morning if its zoo day. I'm pretty excited too, hopefully I'll be able to make it walking around there for a while. This will be the last activity we will be able to do as just a family of 3. Its kind of bittersweet to me. I've spent the last 3 and a half years devoting my time to my sweet Emma. I worry if I'll be able to give both girls the same amount of love and attention. Well next check up post will come next week. Hopefully I'll be able to have a zoo post before that.


34 week check up

I had my 34 week check up yesterday. The dr was way behind from having two deliveries that morning so unfortunately I had to keep a 3 year old occupied for over an hour. We didn't get any good pictures this time, but the dr did say it looks like she has some hair. He said she's measuring around the 5 pound mark. We're down to weekly appointments now. 5 more weeks to go before we decide to evict this little girl :)


The Petersen Family

Sunday we had a get together for Kris's Birthday at our house and we took a family picture.
 We got the whole fam!
Here's Emma and Mugga


32 Weeks

Ok one more post for today. These are from my appointment this morning. Dr said everything looks great. She had both of her hands in front of her face. She was measuring about 4lbs 7oz today. Next appointment is in 2 weeks, then it will be down to weekly appointments after that. Oh Boy! We are getting down to the wire here. Now that we have Emma's room done we can hopefully start getting the Nursery set up and put together.

Easter 2013

Happy Easter Everyone!
Saturday we went up to Brigham so Emma could do an Easter Egg hunt there with Mugga and Pappa.
We pulled into the driveway, she didn't know that she would be doing an egg hunt, and immediately she started spying eggs all over the place. She was so excited to get started.
 Daddy had to help her get a couple of them :)
Her bucket was FULL of eggs and in the eggs were candy and coin money. She was so excited!
The night before Easter we had some visitors stay the night with us. 5 of my cousins from Boise needed a place to crash for the night. They came down for the Festival of Color in Spanish Fork.
Easter Morning they got to watch Emma do her Easter Egg hunt that the Bunny left her. This year the Easter Bunny sent her on a scavenger hunt to find her basket and candy. He gave her clues to follow. Once her basket was found, she was kind of sad. She really enjoyed finding the eggs and hearing the clues. She wanted more. So unfortunately the contents of her basket weren't nearly as fun and searching for the eggs.
 She thought it was so funny that the Easter Bunny hid one of the clues in her dresser drawer :)
 EB brought her the movie Wreck-It-Ralph and some notebooks and some pencils and stickers. Things to help keep her busy while at church ;)
 And a Rapunzel Puzzle
 Emma was so in LOVE with the girls that were staying with us. She LOVES girls and the fact thaty they were so ready and willing to play with her and give her all their attention, she was on cloud nine. Their ages range from 22-11. Kenna the 11-year old was her new buddy she wanted to go everywhere Kenna went. She was honestly sad when they had to leave. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and now today she has told me how much she misses the girls and that she wants them to come back to our house or she wants to go to their house.
