The baby is here!!!

Baby girl Lambert was born at 2:51 pm after (according to my maybe flawed calculations) 21 hours of labor. She had to push for just over an hour and employ the use of a vacuum to get the sweetie out. She is 7 lbs 4 oz and has a fair amount of light brown hair. She is doing great now but when she first was born she was having trouble breathing on her own. She still had some fluids in her lungs. She is still being watched closely in the nursery so they don't get to have her with them right now but she is doing well. Karen and Renn both are understandably exhausted but doing great. Still no name for baby we will get back to you on that.

My wedding cake

My sister, Christie, made my wedding cake -- all five layers of it. It was fondant, covered in fresh red roses and green ribbon. For a more modern look she chose to make a square cake.

OK, here's the truth, what Renn and I really look like when we wake up. After our first backpacking trip as a couple, Renn's hair looked like grass growing on his head and mine lay flat and matted as we walked out of the mountains.

This is us on our last day at the Hummingbird Inn in Maneadero, Mexico. It was a fun week of service with Engineers Without Borders. Renn and other USU engineering students helped put in drain fields at an orphanage, The Gabriel House, for children with severe disabilities. I helped dig some holes and wrote an article for the newspaper about the experience.
