Belly Buds {volume 1}

Ana and I met our freshman year in college and then somehow ended up as roommates, sophomore year,  during our semester studying abroad in Austria. The first few weeks were pretty awkward because we barely knew one another, we were put on a quiet hall, which none of our other friends were on, and we were also trying to get used to life far away from home. And then one beautiful afternoon we decided to go on hike (which was actually more of a walk) on a mission to find a waterfall in the Austrian Alps.  By the time we returned from our little adventure I think it is safe to say we were best buds and inseparable after that. One other huge blessing from this friendship is that she was the one who introduced me this guy named Dan Johnson/ my future spouse. Now that’s an awesome friend.  We were in each other’s weddings and now we are both pregnant with our fourth babies, due within two weeks of one another. She writes a hilarious blog about her adventures in motherhood called Time Flies When You’re Having Babies. She is so real and honest in the way that she writes and if you have never read her blog before, please click on over, she is sure to make you smile!

The Dino Dig

Life around the Johnson home has been kinda crazy lately, but yesterday we had the gift of being able to celebrate Emma and Kolbe’s birthday with a few of our close family and friends. My parents were kind enough to let us turn their beach into a dino dig site (Thank you!!) and I have to say that it was pretty awesome.

The time is 6:09 and we still have about an hour until I can start the bedtime process…so while Mickey and friends entertain them, I thought I would blog a little about Johnson baby #4.
