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!
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.
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
Blogging catch up. Let’s do this.
We took a road trip up north to Washington to see my family and have an ultrasound (!!!). Read More
Checked off a bucket list adventure this weekend. Jordan and I headed up with my sister and her family to the Ice Castles in Midway, Utah!
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!
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!
Well, Lake Louise is beautiful. No denying that.
And we FINALLY got our canoe ride in.
We really loved Jasper. It was hard to leave, but we had some sights we wanted to see down in Banff, so we took the last couple days we had in Canada and headed south.
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.
We had a bit of an overcast day on our second day at Jasper National Park. We didn’t have much of an agenda for the day. At the very least, we hoped to canoe/kayak on a lake.
Well that was an unexpected blog hiatus. Sorry for the radio silence! Let’s dust off the ol’ blog with some photos from our trip up north!
We had planned a trip to Banff a while back, but as we neared our departure date, we decided to shake up our itinerary a bit. After landing in Calgary, we decided to make the 5+ hour drive a little bit further north to Jasper National Park! That was a good choice.
At first, I was a little wary of making such a long drive just after an international flight. But honestly, driving the Icefields Parkway was one of the highlights of the trip.
