Caden checking out the John Deere tractors with Dad.
Trying it out for size...
After the festival we had another 3 hours or so to Lexington, VA. We made it to their house and went out to dinner at a great sandwich place with about 100 different choices, way too many! It was nice to sit outside and enjoy the Virginia fall weather. Shana and Clark's house is beautiful and Caden loved chasing down their two cats, good practice for him now that he is walking. Saturday, we woke up and had breakfast...Caden took a nap and then we headed out to see Foamhenge and then to the zoo! What a fantastic tourist attraction in Lexington! A lifesize replica of Stonehenge on top of a hill, and it is made out of foam! It was great!

He loved seeing the giraffes and especially watching the adults feed the giraffes! Unbelieveable! They would either eat the food through the fence or stick their head over the top and reach with their tongue...it was amazing and a little disgusting all at the same time. The best was watching the faces that Mark, Shana and Clark made when the slimy giraffe tongue licked the food out of their hands...too funny. Caden at Mark on their back porch. They have great views from every window, not a bad way to enjoy a cup of coffee with the sunrise/sunset.

As for updates with baby #2...I am now on to weekly appointments. The appointment this week the baby's heartbeat was still around 149bpm. After much hounding, I received a flu shot this week and then came down with a rash. The pharmacist said that I could have a reaction to the vaccination but I didn't think anything of it until I started itching my arms. Luckily my doctor appointment was on Friday and I asked them about it, turns out it is not from the shot but is a rash that appears around the 35th week of pregnancy called PUPPS. Pruritic Uticarial Papules and Plaques of Pregnancy. Great fun! Never heard of this before and it is definitely itchy helping me to look forward to the baby coming even more! Other than that everything else is going good, we look forward to finding more out this week at the doctor's.
