Just the two of us & Walter

Joshua and I drove Walter to Deception pass/Rockport State park to sneak in one last trip just the two of us. We lucked out and the weather on Friday evening and all of Saturday was lovely. We made bagels & coffee in the morning. Took a long walk along the beach and threw a football (named Steve) for quite awhile just chatting. Headed back to Walter for a nap and some reading. Heated up some leftover homemade indian food for lunch. Caught the sunset over the beach for a bit before starting a fire. We cooked some sausages and ate them with Cheez-its and Joshua played his guitar for a bit. It was a short sweet little trip but it was just enough and it felt great to exist outside and away from everything for 2 nights.



Baby Showers

 We've had a lot of amazing people showering us with love over our baby girl. Honestly, we've been overwhelmed by it. So many people have expressed genuine excitement for us and our little family. People have been checking in on us, asking questions, giving us used baby items, and more. There have been nights where we exchange stories or conversations with people in our lives where we just can't believe how amazing and supportive everyone has been. With our families being so far away it has been such a blessing to be surrounded by these people.

We've also had quite the cluster of showers in the past few weeks. Our small group threw us a camping themed shower where we prayed over her and our family, played pregnant twister (balloons in shirt- except me), and ate dinner together.

My coworkers threw me an in office shower that had 6 types of ice cream and donuts as well as so many lovely books they all got us.

Then my outside of work hanging coworkers gathered everyone at a bar for a casual happy hour where we all just to hang out and catch up.

They were all so deeply thoughtful and I'm still stunned at the hearts of the people in our lives. I can't wait Big Idea gets to meet them all.
