Weekend Getaway

This past weekend Phil and I snuck away for a quick vacation before #3 arrives.  Since I wasn't too anxious to sit on an airplane for hours (or in the car for that matter) we decided San Francisco was the perfect place.  We loved it!  Phil was such a good sport to walk slowly around this beautiful city with a 7 month preggo lady who was obviously waddling by the end of each day.  DSC03876_edited-2

(oh, the chocolate!)
(it's ok if you start singing....everywhere you look, everywhere you go, there's a heart a hand to hold on to)
(the giants won 5-1....can I just say the fans here are awesome!) 
(the rock...aka alcatraz)
(and of course the day we went to see the bridge, it was completely fogged over)
(until we crossed to the other side)
Thanks to my lovely friend Linsdsey who gave us the best tips to enjoy our getaway!  We had such a great time.

back to school

My little buddy started back to school today.  We spent the morning counting down the hours until it was time to go, he was just a little bit excited.  I love that he is growing up, but hate it, too.  Man, I love this kid!



One of the funnest parts of having boys is taking them camping.  Whether it's in the backyard, or even just one night, they LOVE it!  At the beginning of this summer we co-purchased a tent trailer with my parents and we've had a few chances to take it out.  We're still getting used to it, so we've only pulled one-nighters.  We'll save the major camping trips for when the boys are a little older (and I'm a little less pregnant).  

On this trip, we happened to pick the one night that there were major thunderstorms across the state.  Luckily, we stayed dry and the boys slept through most of the storm.  I, unfortunately, was awake most of the night worrying about everything that could go wrong (which I do very well, by the way).  But the boys were just as happy playing in the mud in the morning as they were the dirt the night before.  Nothing a little laundry can't fix for a great night of fun.
