Memorial Day Weekend

Bill and I headed up to Pennsylvania for Memorial Day weekend, our last substantial car trip before the baby arrives. Bill's family had gotten tickets to the King Tut exhibit at the Franklin Institute in Philly for Saturday, so we joined them there. What amazing artifacts--to think they lay untouched for 3200 years. And anyone who thinks that older civilizations were less sophisticated need to go take a look at the craftmanship the Egyptians turned out! I was slightly disappointed there weren't actually any mummies to see, but other than that, it was very interesting.

The next day we went to church and then out to lunch with one of Bill's old friends. This actually was a ploy to keep me away from Bill's parents' house while they set up for a surprise baby shower! When we arrived there after lunch and walked in there were my two moms, 4 sisters-in-law, 2 aunts, and 3 cousins (most everyone was from Bill's side since they all still live in the area). I was very suprised to see my mom and my sister-in-law, Alisa, down from Connecticut. Everyone outdid themselves in preparing amazing food, decorating the place beautifully, and showering our baby with tons of presents! Here are just a couple pictures taken by my mom at the shower.

Look at all the loot!

We call this dog smell-o-vision. Dexter loves when the windows are open and he just sits in front of them and sniffs the air and watches bugs and birds fly by. It is so cute how he is entertained, I thought I would take a picture and share.

Good Dog

Today Dexter graduated from Beginner Obedience class at Petsmart. He was one of a class of seven, and he had tons of fun. Once I convinced him it wasn't all social play time, he did very well. I feel a little bad we can't continue with the Intermediate class because I know he would do very well, but considering it would be ending the week I am due, it probably isn't a great idea at this point.

Anyway, Congratulations, Dexter, I hope you don't forget everything you learned too quickly!

The home stretch

Today I was informed by and various books that I am now entering the home stretch of pregnancy--the third trimester. Things have been going along very smoothly that I feel like time has just been flying by! Anyway, I thought I would mark the occasion with a picture so you can see how little baby girl has made me grow. And yes, the non-maternity t-shirt I am wearing is stretching a little tight--I have shopping plans with another mommy-to-be on Friday to get some clothing with a little more room. :)
