The Month of July

Well being home for the summer has been nice in some ways and torture in some ways. I still make a list at the beginning of every day, but it is getting harder and harder to find things to go on that list. But there are a couple fun things going on.

Makenna and I have discovered that Bowl and Pitcher is a super fun place to go for hikes. She wants to go every Monday morning and I am loving it!

Brett's brother, Jimmy, has been staying with us for about a week and we love having him here. He is like Kenna's best friend. And you can see from the picture below that he and Brett have a ton of fun together as well.

I have also been keeping myself busy doing a lot of sewing projects. The picture below is a purse I made for Kyra.

This blanket was more for Brett than the baby, but it really is a baby blanket.

A hooter hider. This was the easiest by far and didn't take long at all.

My Belly

I feel like these days you can't really see much difference in my growing belly. Really it is just big! I am finallly in the last month and am feeling very ready for this guy to come out. It really hasn't been too bad, but I am excited to not have the pain in my ribs and to sit without feeling uncomfortable, also to not have acid reflex that keeps me up all night. I have actually really loved being pregnant. It is going to be so weird to look down and not see that huge bump!

4th of July Weekend

I am so late on posting this because I lost my camera in Leavenworth for a bit. But thank goodness it was found. So for the 4th we went to Leavenworth and had a great and relaxing weekend. Here are som of our activities.

Makenna really wanted to visit the Gingerbread House while we were in town. It was super cute and smelled AMAZING!

We visited Annabelle's grave, as we always do when we go to Leavenworth. It was a nice family outing.

One morning we took Brett to the top of the mountains so he could do some mountain biking. Then Gloria and I went on a nice walk back to the house. It was amazingly beautiful at the top of the mountains.

So for some reason when Brett takes a picture with me he thinks it is so funny to put his hand on my stomach or side to pretend like we are take a prom picture. He is such a nerd.

Kyra got to bring a friend this time and it was great because it kept her busy!

This weekend my wonderful sister Kimberly, my mom, and Aunt Cheryl threw me a baby shower. It was so much fun and they did an amazing job. It was great to see and hang out with friends and relax in the sun and hang out with family. I got a lot of amazing things which I am SO grateful for. Thanks guys for such a great day!
