Star Wars (and other adventures)

We spent Friday in the Twin Cities having all kinds of adventures! Stars Wars is the current exhibit at the Science Museum.
Will was so excited to see all of his favorite characters, some of the models used in the movie and have his picture taken as a storm trooper.

After the science museum we took a stroll (about a mile) down Grand Avenue and Will was a great sport while we did some baby shopping. We then headed over to the REI in Bloomington so Will could try the rock wall. We met a friend of his on the way in. The resemblance is a little scary!

He wasn't as brave on this wall as he was at Quarry Hill last year. I don't think he liked the idea of belaying back down, something he didn't have to do at Quarry Hill. He wanted to try again after watching Daddy so we'll have to take him back sometime soon!

After yesterday's busy day, the only people who are worn out are mom and dad!

30 weeks down, 10 to go!!

When I was pregnant with Will I promised myself I wouldn't freak out until there were less than 10 weeks left. I've reached that point with this pregnancy and we are even more disorganized than we were last time! It's getting pretty warm and I'm feeling pretty big but I'm trying not to complain just yet. I have a long way to go and some work ahead. I'm teaching summer school weeks 31-35 and going back for work week at 39 weeks so I'll save my whining for then!

Our Little Fish

This is Will's second week of swimming lessons and he is quite the little fish! It is a huge improvement over last summer where his daily report of swimming lessons was "It was good, but I sinked." We've been waiting for a hot day to stay after and swim in the outdoor pool. As much as I LOVE to show off the maternity swimsuit, I appreciate the occasional break from gravity!!

Caroline's First Birthday

It has been a year since we lost our baby girl, Caroline, to Turner's Syndrome at 20 weeks. Will picked out a pink balloon for her and before dinner he let it go to send it to her. He told us today that we should just call her Caroline, not Baby Chocolate (the name he gave her when I got pregnant last year). It was a sad day for all of us, but we have much to be thankful for as we look toward the future.

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:
