Honey, we are having a baby......

didn't go as well as I had expected. I had four days for it to sink in and I kind of sprung it on Joe thinking everything would go great. Well, it took him a few days to get use to the idea as well.

This baby was a very big surprise to both of us and as we are happy and thrilled that God has blessed us with another child without even trying we both were a bit shocked.

We are looking forward to rounding out our bunch to an even number of 4 and after this baby we will be making other birth control arrangements. ha ha ha

Yep, surprise we are pregnant. Since I am back dating all these posts I can actually post when I found out. Which was January 26th, 2011. Joe was in the states when I took the test so he had to wait until he got back to find out. Which was only a couple of days away.

Football Season

Bryson and Carter had a great football season. Here are a few pictures of Bryson and Carter's football season. Bryson played the quarterback of the Colts and did extremely well. He has quite the arm and while sitting in the crowd I would over hear fathers talking about how well he could throw. Age 8

Carter is fast. It's funny what you will hear while sitting in the crowd, one couple was talking about how fast Carter was and how with his hair he looked like Mark Wahlberg in the football movie Invincible. Once he started running nobody could catch his flag. The funny thing is, when he would have to play defense he wasn't nearly as fast. ha ha ha But give him the ball and he would take off. Age 5

The next pictures are in sequence.

Shopping in Seoul

Today we stayed in Seoul and did some shopping. We had a blast. The Flying Pan was so good last night we decided to get up and eat there for breakfast. This time we changed dishes. The decor was very shabby chic with miss matching decor.

Leann is such a good sport. I would tell her do this and that and she would just do it. I love it!!

They were filming something while we were there. To bad we will never know!!

We contemplated buying these outfits for our hubbies. Do you think they would have liked them?

Our yummy mexican food in Korea.

Shopping outside Osan AFB in Korea

Today we took a bus to the Osan AFB shopping area. It's well known for cheap shopping. We got some good stuff. I am not a purse person at all, I just don't carry one. I left this shopping area with two coach purses and a coach change holder that's how good a deal we got.

Though to get to these purses we had to go through secret compartments. One store the guy moved a part of the wall aside and we had to crawl through a space that was probably 4 foot high by 2 feet wide. Purse shopping was quite the experience there in Korea.

This restaurant was super cute. The whole place had couches to sit on and had an awesome vibe. I could see hanging out there at night and having a drink or two. We ate some yummy beef bulgogi.

When we got back into downtown Seoul we ate at the Flying Pan which was so good. I had the banana french toast and Leann had this awesome sandwich.

DMZ, JSA and the Seoul Tower

I know I have written about my friend Leann before, but if you are new here, Joe and I went to high school with her and her husband Ramon. We are now living on a tropical island together and it's been an awesome experience. Leann and I decided to go off to Korea and do some sight seeing and shopping. So we left the hubbies with the kids and off we went.

Our first full day in Korea was super busy. We left the hotel before 8 am and didn't get back until after 8pm.

We signed up for the JSA and DMZ tour. That was a full day event and then afterwards we headed to the Seoul Tower. We were very tired.

First up JSA. JSA stands for Joint Security Area. If you Click on the JSA you can read what wikipedia has to say about it.

The worlds most dangerous golf course.

The white building is North Korea.

Keeping watch

Next up the DMZ! DMZ stands for Demilitarized Zone, you can click on the DMZ to read what wikipedia has to say about it.

We weren't allowed to take a lot of photos at the DMZ. We went into a tunnel that the North Koreans had dug and that was awesome, but we weren't allowed to take our cameras down.

This is a picture of the monument they have placed where there once was a tree. It's where the Axe Murders took place. If you click on Axe Murders you can read about it.

This is the Bridge of No Return, click on Bridge and you can read about it. Angelina Jolie actually walks across the bridge in the movie "Salt". Ironically I had watched this movie the night before we left to Korea. In the movie the bridge looks a lot bigger than it really is.

Afterwards we went to a completely finished train station that sits empty until North and South can come to an agreement to travel back and forth. It was built in hopes they could come to an agreement.

After all that we decided to knock out one more thing on our to do list and visit the Seoul Tower.
