But I'm a bit behind on posting current events! July 16th our small group had a baby shower for us, planned and directed by my wonderful buddies Elle and Lauren. Everything was sooo beautiful- they matched our "nursery" colors in all the decorations. I loved it!!
I'm sorry about this picture Carrie, but it makes me laugh every time I see it!!!
Thanks friends for such a great shower and fun girly gifts! And thanks 'Manders for taking the pics for me :)
The next day we "ran away" for a few days of much needed family time. We spent 3 days and 2 nights in Bend, staying at the Shilo Inn on the river. This would be the first real trip we've taken since our honeymoon. Wow it was wonderful :) The room was great- much bigger than we expected and the hotel had a big hot breakfast for it's guests every morning!
The view from our room- there was a family of geese and a couple of swans that swam around right under us. West quacked at them whenever we went out on the balcony :)
Snuggling after his first swim in a pool, while Daddy watched the World Cup (we don't have actual channels on our TV, so this was pretty cool!)
High Desert Museum
We met a very friendly little chipmunk :)
Bald eagles- they are big birds!
Chasing Daddy in the rain- it was actually a warm, nice rain!
Our super cool ride :) We rented this bad boy in the old mill district and spent an hour riding beside the river- sooo relaxing. I love biking and miss it a lot in my current balance-challenged state!
(I feel a little like Jabba the Hut in these pictures- too bad I didn't realize how unflattering the shirt was before-hand!)
We did a lot more (swimming pool, fish hatchery, West's first time getting to eat a restaurant dinner), but were too busy playing to take pictures most of the time! I loved having a few days of relaxing fun, getting to do whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted together as a family.
