Today we got to see and hear the little "grapes" heartbeat! It was so much fun to hear the baby working so hard and see it already growing so fast! Last week the baby was a blueberry and now a grape! I'm talking the big grapes because the baby is 2.2 centimeters now! Yes, I compare the size of our baby to foods. Thanks to babycenter.com! Everything looks healthy and strong which is always great news! I love my doctor here in Treviso! She is so nice, speaks perfect English (even though I NEED to learn Italian) and is very helpful with all of our questions and concerns! Things are going great over here in Treviso! More updates and pictures to come...

It looks like we...will be having one of these!
But the point is we're going to have a BABY!
Approximate due date: April 27th, 2011
Place of birth: Treviso, Italy
We couldn't be more excited! Ryan already won't let me carry groceries, lift heavy things, lay on my stomach or eat unhealthy foods. I am only two months. Think this is going to be a spoiled baby by daddy?

Every summer the Toolsons take an amazing trip to San Diego! We spend a lot of time with extended family at the beach, doing BBQ's, making delicious pizzas, playing games, swimming, laughing and relaxing! I love this vacation and look forward to it every year. This year included something new which was watching the Bachelorette and going to the San Diego Zoo! Also lots of VG's donuts because I am obsessed and have the best mother and sister in law that will drive 30 minutes to get them for me along with tons of taquitos and California Burritos! YUM! It was so fun being able to spend more time with extended family that I only get to see once a year! I am so sad because I was a horrible picture taker on this vacation. The sun decided to come out once the entire trip so I pretty much forgot about pictures. If you want to see great pictures go to Mckell's blog!
Thank you Mike and Cheri for a great vacation! Can't wait for next year!

Back in July my family headed up to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We do this every summer to get away from the heat and we LOVE IT! We do a lot of relaxing, hiking, biking, eating (seems to always be involved everywhere we go), reading-we all read and completed the Hunger Games and Catching Fire, always attend a rodeo, shopping and horseback riding! Pure bliss...the only sad part is that Ryan has never been able to go with us! I head up to Jackson for a few days then go straight to Vegas to watch him in Summer leagues. One of these times he'll be able to enjoy the Campbell "pretend to be outdoorsy" vacation.
Thanks ma and pa for a fun trip! I had to call you ma and pa to sound western. Did it work?
This summer we started a new tradition! The Little Red Riding Hood Bike Ride. It was an absolute blast! It's an all women bike ride with all different distances available. My best friend Stef told me about it and let me know that her family was going to sign up so naturally I signed my family up! We did the 58 mile ride and enjoyed the entire thing.
Thanks for being the pit crew dad and Ryan!
To many years ahead girls! Happy Riding!
