Go to work with your hubby day...

Brent has been workin some crazy hours. I'm so thankful for him and all of hard work that he does so I decided that I would have a "Go To Work With Your Hubby" day! He suggested that I go on a Friday since they only work tell noon. So this last Friday, I got up at 4:30 in the morning and we were out the door by 5:20. I really had a great time, it was just nice being able to spend a lot of time with him! He took me around the job site in April and man have things changed since then! Here are a few pictures that highlighted the day!

Here is our cool ride! Here we are looking out over the bridge.
Aww...hes so handsome!! I couldn't get out of the pickup except for here because I needed to wear a hard hat and have steel toed shoes...I wore flip flops!!
Here is the Bridge. You don't realize how big and amazing it is until you are there on site. At the very bottom of the bridge you can see little orange specs, that's the workers that are working down there. (If that gives you a comparison to how big the bridge is.) Oh and we went over on the other side too, we went down that rode and from the picture it doesn't look very steep...boy I tell you what, I had to close my eyes I was so scared. You have to have 4 wheel drive to go down and get back out. Here is what it looks like when your down in the bottom of the bridge! Crazy how tall it is!

**As for a baby update, I went to the doc on Monday and was dilated to a 2. My blood pressure has been a bit high so my doc is keepin close tabs on me. We gotta keep him cookin for a few more weeks. But other than that, baby is kickin like crazy and I've discovered that he gets the hiccups a lot! I washed all of his clothes and blankets yesterday and his bag is packed for when he is ready to come!!
