I had my 20 week ultrasound today where we found out the gender of our baby. Julia had wanted me to take her out of school to go with me to the ultrasound, but I decided it would be better if she stayed in school. I wanted to tell her the big news in a fun way so I stole the treasure hunt idea from my friend Sonja. Julia just loves treasure hunts. She was very excited to do the treasure hunt. Here she is reading the first clue.

She had to unscramble the letters It's a boy! She got a little confused because she lost the s somewhere.

She's getting it!

She finally figured it out and here is her pouty face. She had wanted a baby sister:)

I know this isn't the best picture. I don't have a scanner so I just took a picture of the ultrasound picture. There he is #4 and #last!!!!!

I can't believe we are having boys together. We both will have 2 girls and 2 boys. How perfect is that! Any names yet? Congrats!!!! I'm so glad the scavenger hunt worked. It's so fun to surprise the kids.

What a fun way to tell Julia the news! I'm excited for all of you.
