It's a boy!!

We found out last week that baby #2 is going to be another boy. It really surprised everybody because we thought for sure it was a girl. We had a name picked out and everything! We are extremely excited to have another little boy though. We are glad because it will give Ben a little buddy to grow up with. It is for sure going to be a handful to have two little ones so close in age, but we are ready! So we are still trying to decide on a name but we have a couple in mind. If you know of any good boy names that sound good with Haroldsen... suggestions are always welcome! =)

Our busy day!

Well, today was quite the busy day. We decided to go down to the Cuero Turkey Fest with Nikki & Tim, which was about a two hour drive south of Austin. We got there around noon and we walked around and tasted some of the BBQ cook-off (delicious). Then we grabbed some lunch and listened to a live band.

After that we rode the carousel with Benjamin, and then Nikki rode the little train with him. He enjoyed the rides I think.

That was about all we did there, however, the Budweiser Clydesdale horses were there which was neat! Here's a couple pictures of them...

It was really fun but would have been so much better if it wasn't SO hot!! We could barely stand it though so we headed back to Austin around 3:30. We got back just in time to see Taylor off to homecoming!! She looked beautiful!!! Here are some pictures of her and her date...

It took them about 30 minutes of trying before deciding to give up and go without the boutineer. It was pretty funny.
So overall we had a pretty busy but fun day!

Our House

I will be posting several blogs today to catch up with what's been going on for the last little while. To start off... some people have been asking for pictures of our new house, and I have been really slacking on getting them up. Here are some pictures of I took of most of the house. I took pictures of our kitchen, living room, master bedroom, Ben's room and Ben's bathroom. I hope you enjoy!!
