Fetal Echo

Today we went down to the U of M for a fetal echocardiogram.  We brought Ashlyn with us because she really wanted to see the new hospital.  One of our favorite echo techs did the scan for us.  The baby's heart looks perfect (and she has a beautiful aortic arch).  Ashlyn was very well behaved during the scan, and seemed to like getting to see the baby's heart beating.  Ashlyn also enjoyed playing in the waiting area and in the hospital lobby for a while.

First Day of Preschool

Today Ashlyn started preschool.  She made a necklace out of Froot Loops, and said that there were lots of fun toys to play with.  She is looking forward to going back again next week.

A Day at the State Fair

On Monday, we spent the day at the State Fair.  The weather was beautiful, and it wasn't overly crowded, so it was a great day to go.  We didn't try any new foods this year, but instead stuck to ones that we've liked in the past.  This year Ashlyn enjoyed the deep fried alligator much more than she did last year (she ate nearly the whole batch without saving much for me or Corey).  She had fun going down the giant slide with Daddy, and riding the Merry-Go-Round with Grandpa.  She was a good little farm worker and appreciated her hard earned apple.  At the end of our day, we stopped to watch a show on one of the free stages, and Ashlyn was very excited when all of the kids in the audience were invited up on stage to dance at the end of the show.
