4th of July Weekend

Written by Shannon Leigh

Wow I'm behind.
Since Matt and I had a 3 day weekend over the 4th of July, we decided it would be a GREAT weekend to tell our families that we were expecting.  We made my mom a little onsie that said  "I love Nana."  It took my mom a few minutes to actually get it but I think they were pretty excited once everyone figured it out.  My parents took my nephew Kellen camping  in New Salem so we headed out that way and hung there for awhile.  
Doesn't Keagan have the prettiest blue eyes??

Look at his CHUBBY legs!

After telling my parents, we headed down to O'Fallon to tell Matt's parents.  We got my mother-in-law a Willow Tree grandmother box.  We wrapped it up and gave it to her without explanation.  She got it pretty much right away.  I think they were all pretty shocked.  
Anyway, the Anderson's had a pool party on the 4th.  Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate but we all had a lovely time chatting and eating.  We headed to the river with whole fam to watch the fireworks that night. 
Celebrating with some of my favorite people...

Speaking of St. Louis, our friends Janna and Derek came and visited this weekend and they gave us our very first outfit for peanut.  It's a little Cardinal outfit, with a matching bib!  WAY TOO CUTE.  Can't wait till peanut can actually wear it (yes, I am aware that I actually have to gestate for 9 months first).
