The last 2 weeks

Joe and Abs went to the park and ended up catching her first fish after someone lent her their pole because they had their limit. She was pretty proud of her fish, even helped her papa clean it. When it came to eating it however, she wasn't having any of it.

We actually got the garden planted one evening this week. Thanks Kali for getting it all ready to plant and for all your help when we were sick!!

Abs and her Papa

Joe took the training wheels off Abs bike and in true Abby style (that she won't try it until she can do it all the way) she only needed one run behind and now she has got it. She's crashed a couple times but seems to be unphased. Her first day of riding, she also has been trying to master her skid in the dirt driveway. She loves it!!

Well.... it feels a bit like I'm re-entering the world after being super sick (all three of us) with influenza A!! Needless to say having the flu isn't pleasant anytime, ever, but being pregnant and not being able to take anything was a little gnarly. We're all still a bit wiped out energy wise but seem to be on the mend. Horray! Now no more being sick until this baby is out, my immune system seems to be non-existant when i'm pregnant apparently.

Sunshine, the tent airing out, the smell of mowed lawn.

Music, weeding, and laundry hanging out to dry.

A tortilla with cream cheese and pesto.

Baby "Snap" rolling around, hopefully trying to get head down.

Lots of leaning forward for me and less chocolate after the last appointment.

How do they just know when you need it?

A little hard to read so I'll write.
"I love my mom. She is lovable and very sweet.
She likes to nap. Her favorite color is orange. She laughs when I do funny faces.
She makes delicious cakes. She is terrific because we cuddle."
The napping part cracked me up.
Thanks sweet girl.

The Watsons'

Thanks you guys for enduring the drive after work,
the smashed food in car seats and the screaming to come
and see us.
This is Sarah Bear- with a cold but a total trooper- she loved the dogs!

Mark and the kids on the little beach at the end of the road finding crabs and other wiggly things.

Two goat chasing, scooter riding, lion pretending, silly kids that both cried when it was time for everyone to go back home.

Love you guys!
