Once Again Catching Up...

So it has been a busy summer and once again time has gotten away from me. I resolve to briefly catch up and then hopefully STAY caught up... Although I have a handwritten journal as well, this makes for a fun semi-public digital journal with picture/video capabilities. :)

Since my last post, obviously a lot has happened. In case you were not aware, I am now about 8 months pregnant with a baby boy due to arrive October 11th....and yes, that's our 2-year anniversary. (I wouldn't mind if the little guy was a bit early...) I've finally gotten a belly! We have recently gotten a lot of the baby supplies (crib, clothes, lotion, diapers, changing table, etc.), which makes me feel a lot more at ease. Still not 100% sure on a name, but we like the sound of Thomas and Jackson. He sure is kicking/stretching a lot and making mommy uncomfortable!

Since finishing up school, we have done our best to soak up the summer rays and the time we had alone together. We've been fishing and hiking up Logan canyon several times, we went to Lake Powell fishing with my dad/brothers, we visited my sis Christine and her fam in Idaho for a weekend, we visited Corinne and her family in Washington a few times, we went to John's cabin several times, we had fun in Seattle after John's training when I drove to pick him up, we moved to a bigger/nicer apartment in North Logan, we went to John's family reunion that we helped plan up at his cabin, we went to Procupine Reservoir with some friends, we went river rafting (7 1/2 months pregnant!) down the Snake River, we went camping/fishing/canoeing at Causey Dam with some friends, we went camping at Oneida Lake with some friends, we went to Idaho for Vaughn's baby's blessing, we visited home multiple times and gone boating, etc. We've also read many books including the entire Fablehaven series as well as watched movies and gone for walks and gotten errands done. We also made a small batch of delicious apricot jam! It's been a fun, busy summer! although 6 weeks of our summertime fun together was gone because of John's training, I feel lucky for all that we did get to do. Here are a few pictures from our adventures:

So now it is mid-September already and we have started to try to get into the swing of things. John is back in school and working (he sells a program from anxiety/depression) and doing the military and maybe debate...though we're figuring out how busy that is and he may have to cut back. I am keeping myself busy cooking, cleaning, reading, and trying to get things ready for baby. I also have to try to catch up on sleep that I frequently miss out on during the normal hours. I know--just a sign of what's to come. :S
Well, that's about it....hopefully regular updates will be easier now that I've got some time and now that we're all caught up! :)
