Weekend at the Beach!

It was SOO great to get away for 4 days to my parent’s beach house in Port Angeles. It was our first time taking Rowan, and he loved it! I think one of the biggest treats for me was having my mom cook dinner all 3 nights!! So sweet of her. It was really great to have my mom and Brian around. Rowan loves to spend time with them. He kept saying “Bampa!” for Grandpa and would make a funny noise everytime he saw him…. ever since he saw him using an electric saw,because now he associates that noise with him, lol.

Here is a serious photo bomb of our trip!!

Road Trippin’

2012-04-26 09.25.52Had to make a pit stop in Poulsbo. Rowan still doesn’t love sitting in the car, so we stopped at a huge walmart (shhh..don’t tell anyone, we hate that store!) and let him run around. Russ thought he should have his first arcade game car experience, lol. Not sure who had more fun! 2012-04-26 11.31.01Finally made it! Brian handmade this beautiful stained glass sign.

DSC_0551Russ and I even managed to sneak a breakfast date in. Mor-Mor and Bampa watched Rowan, and we headed into town. SOOO delish!2012-04-28 09.36.19Poor kid, hahaDSC_0440DSC_0681 DSC_0689 DSC_0690DSC_0451 DSC_0723 DSC_0731  DSC_0749 DSC_0756 Rowan’s first ferry ride from Bainbridge to Seattle. It was really windy up front and he started going bonkers. Definitely an action shot here, hahaDSC_0798 DSC_0832 DSC_0833  

Can’t wait to go back again! Hopefully once before baby sister is here, and then again as a family of 4 someday!


A couple of my girlfriends, Tyler & Allison brought their ADORABLE boys, Roman and Ezra over for a little playdate. Roman just turned 2, and Ezra will be 2 this month. Rowan wasn’t too sure about either of them at first but they were all pretty cute together. Hard to get one with all 3 smiling but we tried!

Rock Climbing

Last week we had some amazing sunny weather and we wanted to take full advantage of it, so that meant lots of trips to the park. We really love this one place about a 5 minute drive away called ‘Ebright Park.’  Rowan loves going down the big slide, running around, and just watching all the kids in general. He got a kick out of ‘rock climbing’ with dada too!

At Costco sharing gelato with mom and dad. Of course he had to hold it on his own.

Little DUDE

I feel like this kid is 18 months going on 14. Yikes…

Love his new little Volcom hat though. Daddy picked it out when we picked out a hat for little sister. :)

We had our 20 week anatomy scan today and got to find out the gender! I was convinced we were having a boy…and Russ thought girl, for sure! I was so shocked and excited when the tech told us girl!! The doc even double checked when he came in and said he was absolutely certain. She looks perfect and healthy, and they even switched on 3D for a few seconds and we got to see her kick her legs like crazy. It was so amazing!!! They sent us home with everything recorded on a DVD which was great, and a totally different experience than when we had Rowan.

Russ and I went to California Pizza Kitchen afterwards for a little date, and then bought a super cute little pink hat with a flower on it from Nordstrom. Ruffle butt leggings and headbands.. HERE WE COME!! :) Pretty excited to do some shopping.

We decided to pick up a dozen balloons to take a photo announcement. We were all set up ready to pose and the ribbons came untied from the weight and flew up into the sky. I was sooo upset! I just told Russ to forget it, but he told me to go inside, feed Rowan dinner, and he’d go and pick up some balloons. Guess he wanted to avoid this pregnant lady’s emotional breakdown, lol!

Here are some of the pics we took:

Me, with the FIRST bunch of balloons. (Only photo we got, haha)
