30 miles at 30 years old!!!

Yes, you read the title correctly. My sweet husband and his fearless accomplices backpacked 30 miles in 3 short days in a vain attempt to defend their youth!!! Travis planned a backpacking trip to Big Bend National Park for his 30th birthday & scoffed at reports that hiking its trails is "strenuous" (not for these young, athletic studs!). After trekking 30 miles along Big Bend's paths, Travis and his buddies will all tell you that it was, indeed "strenuous" and extremely challenging. I'm sure that an abundance of male camaraderie occurred in this testosterone-packed weekend & they did get to witness some breath taking views. As for me, I spent a fun-filled weekend with my mom & Davida in Dallas shopping for maternity dresses and treasures for our little ones (who are set to arrive in a few short weeks!)...if you ask me, the ladies definitely got the better end of the deal!

And on the baby front, Dr. Owen has encouraged me to set a tentative induction date for Cy Wesley. She is a bit concerned that he may take after his father and be a larger baby. Travis weighed 8 lbs 13 oz at birth! I have been measuring 1 week ahead for the last several visits so she recommended setting an induction date of May 28th (9 days prior to his due date)! Only 9 short weeks away- YIKES! Travis and I trust Dr. Owen completely and know she has the best interest of Cy and myself in mind. We have our final sonogram on April 3rd so the doctors will be better able to estimate his size at that time. We're in the home stretch!!! :)

That is exciting. We will be adding another May birthday to the Epperson family. I think we already have 4 or 5!
