Baby Shower

This last weekend we completed the last big milestone before the baby comes...the baby shower!! My Aunt Mary was nice enough to throw me a great shower with the help of her daughters, my mom, and several of my other aunts. The shower was absolutely perfect and I can't say thank you enough to all who showed up and sent their best wishes. Ryan and I are so thankful for all your love and support!

4th of July Campout

To celebrate the holiday weekend we decided to go camping with some friends up by Heber. Sadly, it took Ryan and I four years to take our first camping trip together. ;-) Although it was a short trip, we were pretty amazed by how much food and lounging we could fit into 2 days.

Altogether there were 7 couples and 10 kids that went on the trip which made for quite the crazy campsite. The kids seemed to have a blast exploring and opened Ryan and I's eyes to how dirty kids can really get when given a little bit of freedom outdoors.

On the last night of the trip we went to the "big" fireworks show in Heber (big for Heber at least). The show was great and it was nice getting to watch fireworks in cooler weather. While it was nice getting to come home and sleep in our own bed, camping definitely made this 4th of July a weekend to remember!

Movie Night

Our friends Mike & Alecia have a sibling who owns a company that specializes in home theater installations. At their office, they have a small theater they use for showcasing their products. As payback for a favor, they lent our friends the theater for the night and let us have our own movie night. The night was spent playing Xbox, watching movies, and binging on theater popcorn and candy. It was great getting to watch movies on the big screen while lounging in their giant recliners. Overall, I think it's safe to say that movie night was a success!

One Last Hoorah

In an effort to celebrate our final "freedom" before becoming parents, Ryan and I planned a trip to the Bahamas with our friends Melanie and Jared who are expecting a baby in September. Although it probably wasn't the smartest idea to plan the trip for when I was 6-month's pregnant, I think it's pretty safe to say that the trip was a success!

We quickly learned that being pregnant is not a very common thing in the Bahamas - and having two of us didn't help. You would've thought that we were celebrities with the amount of attention people gave us.

On several occasions we ventured over to the Atlantis resort to explore their aquariums. I'm pretty sure we saw it all - we even found Nemo!

Although we were out of the country, the boys made sure that we found a place to watch the Sun's playoff game. I think they may have regretted it a bit when the Sun's ended up losing.

Since everyone has been bugging me for a picture of my "belly," I figured I'd snap one while we were on our trip. Looking pretty good for 6-month's, eh? ;-)

One of the days we ventured out and did some shopping in the city of Nassau. My favorite stop was at the local Straw Market where we were able to test out our bartering skills.

On our last day of the trip, we took a boat out to Rose Island where we spent the day snorkeling and relaxing on a private beach. The weather was perfect and it was a nice end to a great vacation. The best part of the vacation by far was getting to spend some one-on-one time with Ryan. Now it's time to bring on the baby!
