Yesterday we went down to Fort Smith to take photos with Mika Beth. She did a phenomenal job! Here are a few that she has already posted on facebook. I can't wait to see the rest! The boys all did great and finally Parker likes a photographer... in the past he hasn't given us his Parker smile, along with getting out of our lap - this photo session was different! Thanks Mika Beth we can't wait to see the rest!

Saturday August 6, 2011 Davis Ray we went into the hospital to deliver Davis. We arrived around 5 am and I was hooked up and getting my epidural around 7 or 8 am. By 10 Dr. Clouatre broke my water and my contractions were progressing. I started at 3-4 centimeters dilated and by 10 I was around a 6. All of the nurses said we would have Davis around 4 - I didn't agree and said it would be earlier and Ray agreed. They also did not agree with me that I would have an 8 pound baby. One nurse even made a bet with me that he would be around 6 and I went with 8 pounds. By 12:00 my nurse Nicole checked me and I was 7 centimeters dilated. Since we all thought it would be a little while my mom and dad took the boys with them to go pick up my brother and pick up some lunch and my nurse had left to get some lunch as well. Dr. Clouatre decided to go to the other room and deliver the other lady down the hall since she was further along. Not even 15 minutes later I told Ray that I felt like things had changed and that Baby Davis was on his way... he asked if I was serious and I told him yes.. I got hot and felt a little discomfort down there and in the past I had no discomfort at all. So we called a different nurse in to come in and check and of course I went from a 7 to a 10 in minutes! We called mom immediately and told her to get back fast, and they called Nicole our nurse and told her to come back. Dr Clouatre was close to being finished so that told me to lay back relax and not move... no coughing. I laughed and said so were going to wait on everyone, and they looked and asked me don't you want to?, and of course I said yes so 30-45 minutes later we were prepping to start pushing. Right before Dr. Clouatre looked at Ray and asked if he wanted to deliver Davis. Of course being the last child Ray jumped at the opportunity, he gloved and draped up and got ready. Four pushes later Davis was delivered - Ray delivered him on his own... with a little help from Dr. Clouatre. It was perfect! I couldn't have imagined it to go any better. Everyone was there to see little Davis come into the world! Ray and my sister went and got Parker and Evan and brought them to introduce them to their little brother and it was such a special moment! God is amazing! The pregnancy went like clockwork, the checkout and everything. The nurses were amazing and we were so lucky and blessed to have everything go so smoothly! Here are some pictures from the special day... finally!
Love and God Bless,
Here are some pictures from the hospital of the fabulous day!

On Fourth of July we celebrated with being in the Pinnacle Fourth of July Parade. We dressed up the golf cart and put the boys in their swimsuits since it was raining. They had a blast - they were so cute! The golf cart looked great and the favorite thing of all was the kids got to throw candy to the kids on the street. Happy birthday America!!
Enjoy the pictures!
A few weeks ago we went to the Naturals game and of course the kids found the kid area. Evan and Parker loved it! They loved the big slide, pitching tent and swing area. They were worn out by the time we got back to the house. We stayed until the end of the 8th ending and went out to watch the fireworks from the truck. That had to be the most excited part of Evan's night - he loves loves loves fireworks. After watching the fireworks from the road and headed home... lets just say the kids were out before we got home. It was a great night and the Naturals won! Enjoy the pictures!
