i've had a few requests for the picture that follows. when i try to explain that i look pure 100% the same at 29 weeks pregnant as i did at 0 weeks pregnant, no one believes me. maybe they will now.

(taken yesterday)

a few little trips

two weekends ago, we went to california to visit the fam. we took the kids to the discovery center in santa ana and apparently, those are the only pictures we got!

waiting to watch the "turtle" movie, which was really a make you feel bad about yourself scolding because of water pollution.

on a dino-quest!

probably my favorite picture of the day

this weekend, our branch had a temple trip to palmyra. i had never been there before, so we decided to stay over friday night at a cute little b&b. fun time.

vintage gardens bed and breakfast.

my favorite candy cane rose from the garden

frank's favorite street

we got to see lots of church historical sites. not too many pictures of that. here's one of us in the sacred grove.

we're staying home for the next couple weekends. next trip, anniversary in niagra falls. stay tuned.

a little afternoon drive

last weekend was the first weekend since we moved here that we've been able to get out and explore. frank was dying to try some things out with his camera, so off to the finger lakes we went. here's the proof.

and proof that i do not look 18 weeks pregnant. or maybe i've always looked 18 weeks pregnant. either way, it's embarassing.

4 days of awesome-ness, aside from the wicked sunburn suffered in tortuga bay. here's some stuff we saw and did...

took a little ferry from the island of baltra (where we landed) to the island of santa cruz (where we stayed)

hung out with this dude. he was quite the charmer.

perhaps my favorite animal, the marine iguana. they doggie paddle in the water. it's ridiculously cute.

swam and kayaked on tourtuga bay. the water was super clear and you could see straight to the bottom. loads of turtles live there and would pop their little heads above the water. pretty awesome.

*don't let the overcast sky fool you. this is where the sunburn of the century was sustained. and yes, i applied spf 70 every 45 minutes, so don't even go there!

took water taxis. if you value your life at all, never, and i mean never get one of these boats. i swore it was the big one. first and last time friends. first and last.

generally had a great time in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

things that horrified me in ecuador

infant car safety. yes, this was taken while driving.

goats freely roaming the streets

and these dudes, everywhere.
