May Update

It's been a long time since I've posted instead of Casey. I'm surprised I remember how to do it! Well, the last few months have gone by really fast, here's an update. . .

First, the belly shots:
I'm 32 weeks (2 months to go!) and growing bigger every day. I don't really notice it myself until I see a picture or catch my reflection in a mirror or a widow as I'm walking down the street. It always catches me off guard and I have to do a double take. Is that really me with the huge belly sticking out? weird. . . .

This is me a few weeks ago at 30 weeks.

This was taken today at 32 weeks.

Moving on to our "backyard". We (okay not me personally) tore everything up (deck, concrete, "rock garden", ivy, honeysuckle) and poured new stamped and colored concrete. We got a new grill, big ceramic pots and a few other touches. Casey is in the process of building a pergola. I wasn't thinking and didn't take a before picture and we're not quite ready for the after picture yet, that'll come soon. But Casey has had a lot of fun with the new grill so here's a photo of one of the dinners he made us:

Next up . . . Escalante! We went to Escalante over memorial weekend with my family. I love the dessert and it was an especially beautiful trip. The rain kept everything nice and cool and green. It was perfect.
The storms made the sky look amazing.

It also made the roads really muddy. This is us rallying in a mini van.

This is me barely squeezing through a slot canyon. A few more weeks and I'm sure I would have been stuck.

Doesn't Casey takes the best photos? I'll let him post the truly amazing ones later.

Death Hallow

The steep hike down to Death Hollow. No one died, it was a miracle. Thanks Dave for keeping us calm and safe ;)

Casey getting excited at Devil's Garden. I tried to jump but didn't make it very high.

Alright, and to finish off this enormously long post, I wanted to throw up more photos of Costa Rica from last month. I'm on a roll and who knows the next time I'll post. It could be a while. But than again, I only have one more week of school left!!

We went to a sloth sanctuary and got to observe lots of baby sloths. I wish I had a permanent smile on my face all the time just like them.

Here Casey's just thinking about riding Salsa Brava, no big deal.

Casey, just being cool like usual

This was the sweet beach house we stayed in.

You look great! I hope you are feeling fabulous as well. Time seems to be flying, hard to believe you only have a short time left. Yikes!
I might be up in Utah at the beginning of August. I'll let you know.
