Stirrup the Rabble
I had my first OB appointment yesterday. We thought, based on dates, that I was 16 weeks along, but the OB did a simple ultrasound and said Baby was measuring more like 14 weeks. We are thrilled that we are finally experiencing some fertility, now that we are 30 somethings. I conceived shortly after weaning Tristan. Fortunately, I didn't have to take any children along to the appointment. This is the sort of thing they like to do in an exam room. I'll update more when there is more to tell.
Today the high was forecasted to be 28 degrees, so we thought we'd do something indoors for entertainment. We visited the 63 Building for the first time. It was pretty overrated, or at least when taking along our brood. We lunched on Korean food, some fried sweet potato balls, and fancy ice cream, then paid nearly $50 to see an Imax movie of some paleontologists and a few dinosaur scenes in 3-D. When it was over a Korean lady sitting in front of us scolded us. We have no idea what she said, but she was certainly angry. Perhaps she didn't care for Kyler's constant chattering (he couldn't get the English headset to work for him, operator error I'm sure), or perhaps she wasn't fond of getting kicked in the head by Tristan a couple of times. I slept through about half of it. There's a "Seaworld", an art gallery, a scenic view from the top, and more, but no military discount. Dean and I decided there's not much point in going back unless it's without the children. Each of the venues costs about as much as the Imax (which wasn't any better than watching the Discovery channel at home for an hour).
