the bump: 29 weeks

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is already here. Sean's family goes beach camping every year for the whole week of Thanksgiving. Unfortunately since we were in Seattle til Monday before Thanksgiving- I wasn't able to get much time off work. But we did enjoy the latter of the week. Sean went up Thursday for the feast, and I came up later that night after work. We woke up Friday and did the deed of BLACK FRIDAY! Sean and I have done it before and got a kick out of it.. so we decided to try it again! It was so fun! We bought lots of electronics, movies and household items. It was really fun! Later Friday morning- the Walker women- threw me a little beachy baby shower. All the women that are a part of beach week- came together and threw me a shower. It was so adorable and fun! My mom, sister and niece joined us, and we had a great time, eating, playing games, chatting and opening gifts. That afternoon we just hung out at the beach, and then that night had some friends and more family come up for dinner/soup night. Friday night is my favorite night of all at the beach, because my family always joins Sean's family and we all eat together and make smores by the campfire. It is the epitome of what holidays are all about. I had so much to be thankful for this year! I can not express how blessed I feel to carry a child inside of me! It is mind boggling to me still that God would bless Sean and I with such a gift.

the bump: 28 weeks

Seattle here we come! So Sean and I had wanted to plan one last trip before the lil tike gets here! So we called up my aunt and uncle in Seattle and cousins and told them we would love to come up for a visit. We had so much fun! We flew into bellingham where my Uncle Wes and Aunt Diane picked us up and enjoyed the first day touring their coffee shops (the woods) and spending time with their family! The following day- we headed down to Seattle! It was so fun! We stayed downtown and shopped, ate great food, took some pictures , got our car towed :(, and saw all our cuzzies! We had so much fun despite the 20 degree and below weather. It was fun to have the change in climate. It made it really feel like the holidays were coming!
It was a great trip. It was crazy to think that, that was our very last trip- just the two of us, not having to worry about anyone else but the 2 of us! We cannot wait for Reid to come, but it is such a crazy transition thinking you and your husband will never again have what you've had before the kids come along!
Here are some pictures of fun times in Seattle- one of new favorite places!
