Baby update

Karen is doing good. We are on the way to visit her. The baby is still in the NICU being monitored. She is still having a hard time breathing and still has some fluid in her lungs. It is hard for them because they want to hold their baby. But the outlook looks pretty good they say it can be common to have this problem with babies. But they can use all the prayers they can get. I love you Karen!!

Congrats on the birth of your little one. I hope she starts doing a little better soon and can make her way out of the NICU. I can't wait to see pictures. I'm sure she's a cutie. I'll be watching to see what you decide to name her. How exciting that she's finally here and that she's a May baby. Did you know that May 23rd was Heidi's birthday? It's a good day to have a birthday.

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.
