Cascade Springs

Last weekend Micah and Eric did a lot of work with the Backhoe in our yard and on Micah's lot in Midway. They got a lot of work done around our house: Smoothed out a lot of areas, dug holes for our entryway logs, widened the driveways, etc. They ended up getting the backhoe stuck on the Micah's lot since it is so steep and ended up having to rent a second backhoe to pull theirs off of Micah's lot. Before renting the second backhoe, Eric was trying to maneuver the backhoe up the hillside and he kept getting closer and closer to the part of the lot that turned EXTREMELY steep. Sometimes it looked like the backhoe was going to tip or start rolling.

It is funny how much more concerned I am with Eric's safety now than ever before. When we were dating, he'd do stuff that was risky and it would scare me, but I wouldn't get too worried. Then once we were married all my worrying multiplied and I'd get so much more worried when he'd do risky stuff. Now that we have a kid on the way, my goodness, I don't know if I could get more worried over things he does sometimes. I guess it is a combination of my love for him increasing and also my realizing how much I rely on him and both really do need and want him around.

Friday night we went camping at Cascade Springs. Jeremiah's girlfriend Laura brought her darling kids and they made it so much fun. Here are some pics of them.

Eric and I dirt biked on Saturday morning. I rode much lighter than normal, making sure not to do much bouncing around and such, but Saturday night by tail bone started KILLING!! It has killed ever since. I called the nurse and she said that because of pregnancy it probably would have started hurting at some point, the pregnancy hormones make your ligaments more flexible so your hips can spread for childbirth, but the dirtbiking just pulled the tailbone from the sacrum a bit earlier than normal. Now I get to live with the sorest butt on earth! Sadly sitting makes it feel worse and with work, school, commuting, and my lack of energy to stand all day, I am faced with a whole lot of pain. Yee-Haw! At least it is for a good cause :)
