Oh the JOY!!


This weekend was so dreamy!! We had our first visitors from a far away land (LA) come to stay. We got into our apartment thinking our guest bedroom was going to be used a ton by visitors, and they were our first out of towners eight months later! Eric, Chelise, and Kalem came to visit us and it was so much fun. Thursday, Chelise and I did some shopping and we bbq'd and took a trip to the fountains for some Big Spoon and of course, the fountains. Friday, we drove up to forest hill bridge and the confluence of the rivers and just enjoyed the nice weather and the scenery. Our 40ft hike was more than enough for me and I thought I wasn't going to make it! We went to Lucilles for Devins birthday, and enjoyed an evening to ourselves while my sisters babysat Kalem. Saturday, we took some bikes to the American River trail in Folsom and spent a couple of hours riding bikes and playing near the river. It was beautiful and I cannot believe that we hadn't been there before. I want to go again this weekend! The bike ride was hilarious watching all the looks I kept getting. I guess it is because I am 8.5 months pregnant and looking ripe, but when I got a thumbs up from a guy speeding by on a road bike, I couldn't stop laughing. We then drove up to the temple and walked around for a bit and even saw some deer up there. Saturday night we were all exausted and sunburned, and I still feel like my bum is broken, but it was so much fun I cannot wait to do it all again. This summer, I think we are really going to get bikes and I can't wait. Last summer after our Tahoe bike trip we had ourselves convinced we were getting bikes, but I think this time we are really going to do it. Minus the fact the Devin wants a road bike and a mountain bike! We will see! Oh and just an update, 8 weeks later supposedly Devin is getting the last pin removed from his toe and will be whole again as of Wednesday! I am crossing my fingers, toes, eyes, legs, everything!!

Ash....you are killing me in that last picture of you on the bike. Hahaha!! How did you do that?? It seems like that would be really hard to ride a bike when you are that far along in pregnantdom. Good job.

Please turn down the guest bed for us...because we'd love to come see you guys.

No helmets huh? (ha ha) I too love the last picture of you riding your bike...I am so amazed that you were able to do that...I think I would have tipped over and gone into labor...way to go ASH...only 5 more weeks. We are so excited!

I'm glad you got a couple pics with you on the bike. I can see why people might have laughed, and good for you for laughing along with them. I don't know how you talked yourself into getting on a bike in the first place. My bum hurts when I'm not pregnant. Keep up the bike riding and you're sure to have an easier labor. Well, you can cross your eyes and legs at least. Good luck to Devin getting the pins out. I hope it works out.
