Quick Family Visits

I got lucky to see my brother Bobby, his wife Abbie, and their son Major over the fourth of July weekend. It was a last minute trip up to Utah, so I only got to see them for a little bit with my work schedule, but Major is just too darn cute, so I had to post a picture or two or three of him.

He liked sucking on anything metal, especially our necklaces. Teething? Probably.

He was excited to walk.

But didn't know what to think of the camera:) He is so sweet though. I'm excited to have a little boy too!

The next week, I headed down to Vegas to see my niece Payton perform in a ballet recital. The first act was a performance of the Little Mermaid. The second act was of the Four Seasons of the year. They had ballet, tap, hip hop, all sorts of dancing. It was cute. And as excited as I am to have a boy, it still made me wish I was having a little girl:)

Madi and Payton before Paytons recital. She was so nervous! It was cute.

I know I didn't get the best pictures, but she is the cute little redhead dancing her heart out.

We went swimming the next day to cool off in the 112 degree Vegas weather. It is way too hot there! Especially for a pregnant lady. I don't know how the women down there do it!

Madi had a birthday party to get to, so Michelle and I took Payton to get a manicure. Michelle and I got pedicures. It was so relaxing and felt so good! It was a quick trip, but it was fun to see the girls again.

The next week, or maybe two weeks later, I lost count, Michelle and her family were driving through Utah to Idaho. They stopped by our place on the way and I tagged along to go to the Thanksgiving Point Museum of Ancient Life. I only got a few pictures, but it was fun! I can't wait to have a family of my own to bring there.

And that is it for now! I think the next time I have family visitors will be in about 2 1/2 months when this little man decides to join us. But for now, he can keep baking away. We want him nice and healthy:)

Crunch time!

We realized yesterday, that we are only 11 weeks, if that and hopefully not more, away from having our little boy. Yikes! It is flying by! So, Scott built our crib last night! We were waiting because we were hoping to move out of this place first, but now it looks like we will be staying here for a little while longer. So, here it is! Our crib...and a baby bump from 27 weeks. Thanks to my wonderful parents for this gorgeous crib! We love it:) Oh. I almost forgot. Scott claims REAL men build things with their shirts off...hence my topless husband opening up the box the crib came in.

Jason's family with my little family. His kids are getting so old!

We dropped Michelle and her girls off at the airport on our drive home to Utah, so we took a detour to Multnomah Falls.

I love my family! It was so good to see all of them! And to spend some good quality time with them. I'm hoping we get to see them more and more from now on. Maybe they'll come visit us in Utah when we have our baby in a couple of months. Hint, hope to see y'all soon! Love you!

A Month and a Half Later...

I guess I just get to busy to finish blogging about our trips. So, I'll keep going on our Portland visit. After the cheese factory, we headed to the Manzanita Beach. It was REALLY windy, but fun!

I can't blame them. James and William fell asleep on the drive back to Portland. We were so exhausted from such a fun filled day!
