Big News at the Powell Household!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that Harris and Elliott are going to have a new little brother or sister. As of Saturday, Heidi is 9 weeks pregnant. The due date is the same as Elliott's February 28, 2009. Harris has really been asking for a new baby (preferably a sister) a lot the past several months. So when we told him, he was bouncing off the walls. Elliott didn't understand, but he was really excited just seeing Harris. It was pretty funny. We are just having to stress that he/we don't get to pick whether it is a sister or a brother.

We went to Atlanta this past Sunday and Monday. We went to Stone Mountain on Monday and Six Flags on Monday.

There were all kinds of things for kids to do at Stone Mountain. Harris even got to be in the Circus. He was the Human Cannonball (I was so proud!). It was hilarious; he just sat on the stage grinning from ear to ear the whole time. Other highlights were the Veggie tales, petting zoo, and laser show.

Here are some pictures

Six Flags

We mainly went to Six Flags so the kids could play at the new Thomas Town. We went to Thomas town first and rode Thomas and got to meet Sir Thomas Hat.

This was fairly early in the morning, check out Elliott’s hair……Shall I say it was a little WARM!

After we went to Thomas Town, we were walking by the Scream Machine and Harris said “ I want to ride that roller coaster.” I kinda thought he should try something a little smaller first, but he wanted to ride it. I wish they had a picture of his face going down the first and second hills, it was priceless. After we got off he told me that that roller coaster was a little too big for him. But at the end of the day (after he road several other roller coasters) he was wanting to get back on it.

Florida 2008

We made the annual trek to the beach for the 4th of July. We had a great time. Here are a few pictures from the trip.
