San Francisco!

Will near Pier 39 with the city in the background

Will and I just got back from a week in San Francisco! We went to visit my cousin and her family in Walnut Creek. We had so much fun! We spent an afternoon at Tilden Park, a day in downtown Walnut Creek, a day we referred to as "preschool day" where we had several structured activities at home including painting, play-doh and baking cupcakes from a picture book (Pinkalicious!) , a day Pixieland Amusement Park and a day in the city of San Francisco.

Meg, Will, Megan and Amy at Tilden Park

Will and Megan were PERFECT playmates. We actually spent an entire week without any fighting or tattling. It was amazing! Elvie, their dog, may not agree, as "Elvie! Come!" was repeated (and ignored) at least 100 times each day! But for two only children to have a playmate all week was a welcome gift for two tired pregnant moms!

Megan and Will at the Creamery

One of our favorite stops for preschoolers and pregnant women alike (Amy is due July 13th) was the Olde San Francisco Creamery Co. in Walnut Creek. Amy and I actually went there twice in three days! I can't wait to be weighed in at my next appointment in three weeks!

Will and I are back home safe and sound, missing our cousins and California!!

15 weeks left!

I've been inspired to blog! A co-worker keeps one and we were able to follow her journey through labor and delivery right from the hospital. I don't know that this will one will be that detailed, but it is a good way to keep friends and family in the loop (and post attractive pregnancy pictures). Here we are at 25 weeks! So far all is well and we've been given the go ahead for a VBAC. Will is excited to meet his baby brother. His name pick of the week is Benjamin. We haven't decided anything yet, but it is an improvement over his previous choices (Yodi and Indiana Jones).

One of our goals is to show Will the world outside of our small town in Minnesota. Here is a record of his travels so far:
