Summer Break: Week 6 and 7

Week six was largely spent doing some early preparations (aka deep cleaning) for the arrival of our little one. Speaking of our little guy/gal, we had some more pictures taken and it was right around this time that I started to feel little kicks from the inside. They are so cute. Last chance for predictions. . . we will most likely be able to end the suspense tomorrow. Morning. 10:10 AM. Don't worry, if it's not killing you, I'm dying to know enough for everyone!

Week seven was monumental. Justin had a birthday. But that's not the monumental news. The real news is that in honor of his birthday, we became Costco members. I wish I had a picture to document our excitement about this event. Thanks to Justin's parents for the birthday present!

I was also able to surprise Justin with a little gift myself (which is saying something because for some reason I always seem to blow my cover). The best part is that I got it right under his nose when we were both in the same store. I got him a book. It's one he wanted, something about a woman with a worm in her head? Infectious diseases? Doctor stuff. He's reading it as we speak, so it must be good. . . if you like that kind of thing.

On his actual birthday he got to do all sorts of fun things like play basketball (boy loves to play basketball), go surfing, and go out to eat. What more could a guy want. Wait there's more. What made it even better was when we got to meet up with the Williams family, three (four) of our most special friends. They took us to a great beach for surfing and Justin gave it a go. Highlight of Justin's birthday: Luke leaning down to scoop up a pile of sand with his mouth. Repeatedly. Love that little sweet guy!

Justin with Tyler the professional. . . 
Turns out the waves were a wee bit too small for that short board of his.

Here's to summer.
Stay tuned for exciting news to come.

Thanks for the BEST Saturday!! I'm still dreaming about the pizza :) And a big thank you for not including any pictures of the beached whale that is me :) We love you guys! Let's play again SOON!

Elisabeth: You are not a beached whale and I would have featured your lovely mug (and Luke's too) but I didn't get any before my camera died. I really need to work out my picture taking shortcomings.
