Baby R Birth Story

Well, whadya know? The day after posting about our Babymoon to Moab, baby girl decided to make her appearance. And two days early!

Born two days before her due date, Baby R has been here two months! And yes, it’s true what they say. Time has just FLOWN by. I can’t believe it. And I can’t believe how happy this little bug makes us!

Baby R Birth Story

When I was pregnant, I loved reading birth stories. Not only do I want to remember this day, but maybe some other pregnant people out there will enjoy this as well. :) SO, on to the birth story!

Baby Moon in Moab, Utah

May 16, 2016

Jordan and I really didn’t want to chance any international travel with the Zika virus going around, so for our baby moon, we planned a long weekend getaway down to Moab, Utah!

Baby Moon in Moab, Utah

I was 31 weeks along at the time, and honestly, if we would have done it any later, I don’t think I could have managed, hah! I still felt pretty good physically, and we were able to find plenty of short, easy hikes that I could handle. It really was the best weekend, I’d recommend it in a heartbeat! Read More

Pregnancy Update – 36 Weeks!

April 26, 2016

Hi! It’s been a while. I really wanted to be better at documenting this pregnancy, but I kept waiting for life to slow down. And it never did.

So what better time than now to dust off the ol’ blog (for the 50th time) and write down a little update!

Baby Bump

I am 36 weeks. Woah. Baby COULD come any day, and be healthy. But I’ll let her cook a while longer, if she doesn’t mind ;) It really is a strange/incredible thing, watching your body work and change and grow a baby. I mean, I’m not actively doing anything to make this happen, but it keeps going and growing.

Washington – Hikes and Ferry Rides

March 9, 2016

Washington

One of the best parts about where my parents live here in Washington are the countless trailheads just minutes from their home. The damp, mossy forests are a welcome change to the dry Utah climate we’re used to. We took Kiko out on a few hikes and she could not even contain herself. I don’t blame her.

The fun continued with a trip downtown, swinging by Pike Place and hopping on a ferry out to Bainbridge. Read More

Our Next Little Adventure

January 6, 2016

I thought I wouldn’t do this.

I thought I wouldn’t be the one to skip out on the blog once this happened. BUT I did! And I really have no reason why. Tiredness? Preoccupied? I don’t know. That being said, we’ve got a pretty big announcement.

Our next little adventure coming this May 2016!

American Fork Canyon

Yup, a baby!

I wanted to kill two birds with one stone and have our baby announcement be in our Christmas card this year. So Jordan and I hurried up the canyon one day after work (with a tripod and Kiko in tow) and snapped a few photos. And we really don’t have any photos of the three of us (with Kiko), so the tripod was our photographer for the mini photo shoot.

We really are just beyond excited for this baby! I hope to write a more detailed update on our lives soon, so stay tuned!

Jasper National Park – Day 3

November 6, 2015

Jasper, Alberta

Our final day in Jasper was by far my favorite.

We got up early and checked out of our cabin, which was an AWESOME place to stay. I nabbed a room last minute, without much research. And I’m glad we stayed here instead of a hotel. It was a cosy little cabin, and a perfect setting for a getaway in the woods.
