Catching Up...


A few weeks ago my good friend from Jr. High and High School, Melanie, came to visit for the weekend from California. Both of us are due the same week in August with our third child. Melanie left sunshine and blue skies to be under a 2 day deluge of constant rain and cold. We couldn't even see the mountains the whole time she was here. Although our maternity massages had to be canceled, we still pampered ourselves with a pedicure, a movie, much eating out, and a few visits to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. We had a great time! Thanks for coming Melanie.

And with the weather turning warm, the kids have been outside alot more. I love when the kids can just go outside and play.

Sharing a popsicle.

I am now 24 weeks pregnant. If it looks like this picture was taken by a short person, that's because Bella was the photographer. The second trimester really has been great so far. I have felt like a normal person who is just getting fat for the most part, although I am starting to have some back discomfort, especially at night.

And here are my parents opening up their mission call. They report to the MTC at the end of June and will serve in the Chile, Osorno mission. If that sounds familiar to you, that is because Blaine's parents are CURRENTLY serving in that mission. It is pretty wild that my parents will be replacing Blaine's parents even though we knew it would probably happen since my parents actually requested that mission.


Last week a bunch of us took the kids to the zoo. It was nice to be out in the warm sunshine but since when did 70 degree weather feel like 95 degrees? Oh yeah...ever since my body became an oven cooking up another human being...that's right. This just may be the hottest summer of my life.

It is so good to see Melanie! She hasn't changed a bit! (And neither have you-WOW!) You both look GREAT! I'm so glad that you two have stayed in touch!
I'm so happy for your parents! They will be great missionaries!
And I LOVE when I can send the kids outside to play too- it's not often we have a quiet house! (Even if it's just for a minute!) :)

You look fantastic! I have to say, I loved being pregnant in the summer, all that fresh fruit and hardly any holidays or feasts! (all the christmas, valentines, and thanksgiving oh yeah and halloween goodies just about did me in!) Anyway, you have a great excuse to spend a lot of time in a swimming pool with your munchkins! Pregnant tummy's look great in a swim suit! Also , could you send my Uncle Howard's mission address? We'd love to write to them in Chile! Thanks!

That's exciting for your parents! Bummer they will miss the birth of your baby. Nice to have Blaine's parent home soon. You look great! After being pregnant with Sara in the summer I said if we have another...I will not be preggo in the summer!
