|Our back yard in January, there is a little more snow now.|
March has been kind of rough so far. We are still getting snow. The one thing that I (Jen) love about winter is it is citrus season and we've been eating up the grapefruits, mandarins, and other oranges. Miles loves them too. New baby seems to like them too.
|We have gotten out a few times to hike and play in the snow.|
We made a trek down to Memphis at the end of January for the North American Duck Symposium. Memphis is one of my favorite places and we had a great time catching up with all of our duck colleagues and grad school friends. Miles came too and we introduced him to the duck community as well. Grandma Kross met us there and spent some quality time with Miles while Aaron and I attended the conference talks and discussions. The conference was at the famous Peabody Hotel where they have a small flock of ducks that they bring up and down the elevator and they hang out in the founten in the lobby all day. Grandma made sure Miles got his fill of duck viewing every day.
|We got to see Amy!!!|
|Grandma and Miles on the roof of the Peabody where they take the ducks to roost at night.|
|He liked it up there. It was a little cold but that didn't bother this ND kid.|

|Let the kid nap, we will all be happier if he does. P.S. note we are both in shorts!|
So, that has been our major adventures so far in 2113. The days are getting longer and we are anticipating seeing the ground and planting our garden in another month. We are also counting down until New Baby arrives. We have about 9 more weeks to wait. We don't know the gender, we had fun waiting to find out with Miles so we thought we'd do the same with this baby. New Baby is very active and is doing back flips and kicking me constantly. This has been a smooth pregnancy just like with Miles and we figure the challenges will begin when he/she gets here. We are also still debating names.
Hopefully it won't be so long before my next update. I'll try and schedule a time and stick to it. Take care and drop us a line anytime.
