With just about a week to go before baby #2 joins our family... I thought I would do something just for Olivia. So we spent the day doing girly things together. We did our fingernails...(painting fingernails is one of her favorites)
She picked out the perfect color for this time of year. Orange... like pumpkins!(of course)
We ate a bunch of these....
While watching this...
And then we ended up doing a little shopping. What more could a couple of girls ask for?
Remember these photos back in the first part of spring? Well we've spent a lot of time working in the yard and preparing it, so that we could lay grass seed.
So we raked, and raked, and raked. Put some seed down.... and now.... aaaahhhhh the long awaited grass is growing. It's only been a couple of weeks... So hopefully by Halloween the coverage will be fuller and who knows, maybe we'll even be able to mow it!
For Labor day we headed over to Seattle. But on the way we made a pit stop at Leavenworth. It is a cute little Bavarian town not too far from Seattle. There are a lot of great shops and in each one you went into it felt like Christmas. So I found a pic on google of it a Christmas time. I think next time we go, we will do it around the holidays because I would like to see it decked out in lights like he picture below for myself.
Olivia is holding her Santa snow globe that she got there. Unfortunately she dropped it and it is already broken.
Then, we headed over to seattle. We did the downtown thing and there I was able to get me some of this... aaahhhhh. It was nice to be there.
We were able to hit up Safeco Field and see the Mariners play a game before their season is over. Gotta love the moose. Olivia wouldn't take a pic with him by herself... so Dad to the rescue. I think he was enjoying it more then her by the look on his face! Olivia did so good at the game. Near the end she managed to lay in the seat and get nice and comfortable.
We went on a Ferry ride...
And then we hit up Snoqualmie Falls on our way out.
We had a great time. Ate a ton of food and spent time with family. What else could be better? (not an Alaskan cruise....I'm still a little bitter)
For our 4th of July Holiday, we had a room with a window,
Given a gown to wear... Personal room service that waited on me hand and foot...
And bottomless drinks.
But missed these...
So your wondering why? Do to complications to Kidney stones and pregnancy... Our 4th wasn't the funnest, nor one we really care to remember. After a week in the hospital, I am home and doing better. Hopefully I can just pass these stones and get on with my life and my trip to Utah.
As you may have guessed, we are expecting child number 2. And since I am 23 weeks along, we thought we would share our news with the world about the upcoming baby. At our 20 week doctors visit we discovered that the baby has 3 knees. A Right Knee, A left Knee, and a Weenie!
Over Memorial Day Weekend some of my family from Utah made the long trip up to hang out with us. We really enjoyed having them and hope that they enjoyed it here. I tried to make sure that while they were here they would get to experience all that our small town of Moscow has to offer.
We started out at the Farmers Market. Thank goodness the rain held out on us while we were there.
We really wanted to get lunch at one of our favorite places in town, but it was closed! So we settled for another hole in the wall type restaurant. VJ's..I think we would have enjoyed Mikey's more. Sorry guys!
Then, what else do you do in a small town on a rainy day? Oh yes, we went bowling! (Adam, you really shouldn't get so grumpy while playing. Although, you did lose to me, and your wife!)
We ate sugar cookies until we were sick... yum!
And then we gave "Holy Board" a try.
All in All, I had a great time and I know Olivia loved having all the attention from Grandma and Grandpa Wee, Aunt Krissy, Aunt Lauren, and of course Uncle Abbett..(Adam) We miss you and can't wait to see you all again soon!
