Bad Blogger :(

I seriously doubt anyone even reads this anymore! I can't believe I haven't blogged since APRIL! Sheesh. And here I thought I'd keep on blogging just as frequently when I was back in the States. Fail.

Anyway, it is definitely high time for an update then, huh?
Let's see, what has been going on since April? We might as well start with a photo montage because not only have I not blogged in months, but this blog hasn't included pictures in even longer.

Mommy and Kaden seesawed. :)

We took the kids to the zoo.

Our backyard flooded and we got a temporary pond (with ducks!)

My Dad and Maddison came down to Boise for a race weekend and we got to go see her. Kaden thought she was awesome and we all had a great time.

Then, Kaden, Stu and I drove over to Seattle for Memorial Day Weekend, which was pretty great except that it rained the whole time we were there (but it was Seattle, so it gets a pass :)).

Mo and Co. threw a baby shower for me, which was so great because I got to see so many people from my childhood (and their now-adult children!). We really enjoyed it.

Stu had never been to Seattle, so we had to do the typical tourist things like Pike Place Market, which was super crowded, and we also took the ferry over the Bremerton with Mimi and Papa and that was a freaking blast. We saw an old Navy ship while Kaden hung out with Mimi and Papa at the street fair and then we all ate lunch at Anthony's, which was the best seafood I've had in a long time. Afterwards, Kaden and Papa were pooped. :)

Sleepy sleepy Papa and Kaden. :)

As far as current events go, I had my baby shower in June, courtesy of the wonderful Miss Kristin, and it was awesome. It was so nice to see so many people come out to support us and our new little Nugget. We still haven't picked a name for this one, but we feel confident that when we meet him, we'll finally be able to settle on the right one (this is me using positive thinking... it's our last-ditch effort to find a freaking name, and if we still don't have one then, "Nugget" is going on the birth certificate and he can name himself later. :))

Other than that, we've just been trying to stay busy as these last few weeks of pregnancy sure can be slow. It's been getting pretty nice here lately and we're trying to enjoy the weather, and having only one child, as much as we can. I can't believe in just a few short weeks my baby is going to be a big brother and we are going to be a family of 4!! :)

So here is one for the road... my latest belly shot, taken yesterday right at 38 weeks. :) Everything is looking good and we are both very healthy, so we're just waiting for him to decide he's done incubating so we can meet him!


  1. Love the update and yes, I still read your blog! I wish everyone blogged as much as they used to! :(
