May happenings

It's been awhile since I've posted anything, so I thought I would catch up on a few things that have happened in May.

First, my 3rd grade co-workers gave me a baby shower at work.  It turned out very cute and I got a lot of good gifts for the baby.  Here are a few of pictures from the shower:

The yummy cake

     One of the many "cakes" made from diapers

Hard to read, but VERY cute!!

       The awesome gifts!!

Second, we took a much needed little vacation over the Memorial Day weekend.  In the 3 1/2 hour drive, we went from Visalia with temperatures of the upper 90's to San Francisco with temperatures in the mid 50's.  It was a nice break from the heat (especially for me!), but it turned out to be a little cooler than we had expected.  The whole point of the trip was that we had tickets to see Wicked.  I love this play!  I recommend that everyone sees it!  Ryan and I saw it last summer in New York.  We enjoyed seeing it again, although New York's was better.  We also did some shopping, went to Ghirardelli Square, the California Academy of Sciences museum, and Alcatraz.  It was a TON of walking in 2 days and I was the caboose of the gang, but it was a TON of fun.   One our way home we stopped at the Gilroy outlets.  It was a full and eventful weekend.  Here are a few pictures from the trip:

This is a horrible pic, 
but it's the only one of us that weekend

And finally, I thought I would update you on my ever growing belly.  I am now 35 weeks and counting down, although I know I still have awhile.  I have been feeling pretty good still and the baby seems to be doing just fine.  Within the last week, my feet have decided to swell pretty good.  With teaching it doesn't help, but I'm drinking a lot of water and trying to put them up as much as possible.  The doctor is guessing that the baby will be about average, which is 7 1/2 lbs.  Lets see how accurate that is, considering Ryan was 10 lbs.  We are getting very excited to see the little guy, but also more anxious and nervous for the labor and delivery.  I hope all goes well!!  Here's my 35 week picture:


  1. well I think that picture of you and Ryan is awesome. Good times!

  2. Make Ryan rub your feet! You deserve it! You're carrying a baby! Will was 5 15, and that was 4 weeks early! If I would have gone full term, they said he would have been about 8 1/2 pounds! That was the ONLY good thing about him being here early. I still think they just had my due date wrong! haha I am glad you are doing well and hopefully school will be over for you soon and you can just relax!

  3. Tim and I went to San Francisco for our 2nd wedding anniversary and it was such a fun little city. Alcatraz was my favorite.
    I'm glad to see you are doing well and I can't wait for the little guy to come!
