Cabo Fun

Jim surprised me with a babymoon to Cabo San Lucas a couple of weeks ago. We were there for 6 days, 5 nights all by our lonesome. It was a wonderful and relaxing trip. We mostly sat by the pool in the 80 degree weather, but also took a dinner sunset cruise and played with dolphins. The dolphin part was a big surprise, a once in a lifetime opportunity.

What a great trip!

Dusty Blog

What we have is a rusty, dusty family blog.

You can blame a few things for the sad state of our blog, a wonderful camera that I really cannot upload pictures from, a blog format that makes me a little batty, a busy few months, and our third pregnancy. More about that last reason later.

For now, here are some random pictures I found. Please forgive the backwards order, just think of yourselves going back in time a few months. Here is what you have missed:

Nora turned 3 and had a Strawberry Shortcake party

Nora wasn't a fan of everyone singing to her

Good thing she had her BFF at her side to recover

We did some apple picking

Nora became a ballerina

School days

We had a great staycation in the city

Summer sweetie
