24 Weeks

I am now 24 weeks pregnant. I am feeling really good for the most part. My biggest compaint is that my lower back hurts a lot more than before. I guess I have it pretty easy.

We have been working on the nursery a little bit. We are painting the walls green. On Saturday I was standing up on a ladder edging by the ceiling. I was at a point where I couldn't reach any further and had to move the ladder over. As I was stepping off of the ladder, I was surprised by a wet, slimmy feeling on my foot. I reacted quickly and placed my foot somewhere else. I realized I had started to place my foot in the paint can. When I quickly stepped on the floor, my foot was dripping in green paint and was just a couple inches from the edge of the drop cloth. It was a close one.

For those of you interested, I have posted some more pictures of our Cabo trip.

Cabo Trip

We got back from our trip Saturday night. Tim and Kelli Barker and their two kids went with us. We were in Cabo for 9 days and the time flew by. We spent most of our time at the beach, the pool, and eating. The food there was good but we decided we like the Americanized mexican food better than the more authentic mexican food. One exception was the guacomole. It was delicious! We also ate a restuarant called Edith's where they made a caesar salad in front of us. It was the best caesar salad we have ever had. Another restuarant we ate at was called The Office. It was on the beach and we decided to go on Mexican Fiesta Night. The entertainment for the night was a game similar to musical chairs and a pinata.
Dinner at The Office

We spent most of our mornings at the beach. We went on walks, played in the ocean, built sandcastles and watched the waves. The last couple of days we were there, the waves got really big and loud. Sometimes they were so big and loud they would shake the condo. We built 3 different sandcastles. Each time they got bigger and better. Thanks Kaden for sharing your sand toys with us!

Our afternoons were mostly spent relaxing by the pool. My time was spent reading while Alex played in the pool with Kaden and Jack.

Alex also enjoyed taking pictures of landscaping. The picture below is one of his favorites!

I finally got some more pictures on here. For those of you interested, I will let you know when I get Alex's landscaping pictures posted.

Fun in the Sun!

As most of you know, Alex won a trip to Cabo through a competition at work. He has been working hard and it has been very nice to relax for awhile. The scenery is beautiful. We have enjoyed watching the waves, playing in the ocean, building sandcastles and relaxing by the pool. I will post more pictures when we get back home.

Pregnancy Update

I am now 22 weeks (and 4 days) along and everything is going good. We haven't done anything more to the nursery, but we have bought the bedding. The theme is going to be ladybugs and dragonflies.
