Baby Update and funny picture of James

I had my 30 week appointment today, and according to the Dr. everything is looking great! I'm measuring right on, and he was able to, and helped me feel how she's positioned now.  She's head down! Yay! The doc said that mostly by this far she's big enough that she shouldn't move enough before she's born to be breech.  Other than that he said, "See me in two weeks."  TWO WEEKS! Things start cooking a lot faster now and she's coming way way way too fast! I could technically have her in 6 weeks!  Wow! Well that's all, and enjoy this funny pic we found of James on his mission in Mexico right before the dog turned evil and bit him :)

Final Hoopla!

James and I decided that before the baby comes we should go on one final vacation with just the two of us, (well K is in the womb) but anyway....We decided that we would go to Kansas City, Missouri to visit James' dad and his wife and her kids. We also drove, yes that's right being 25 weeks pregnant I rode/drove in a car the whole 16 hours to Missouri AND BACK! And would you believe that we actually had fun on the drive. If you know James and I, you know we're road trippers for life! We also were able to see Michelle again since she flew in to KC to join in the adventure as well! Anyway, here are some pictures of what we did each day.....
Saturday (The drive there!)
Really words cannot explain driving through some of the most dull country and turning the corner to see a 30 foot Mary statue on the border of WY and NE. We had to pull over and get a picture!

Dinner at Ameristar Casino (All you can eat buffet on Crab Night!)

Saturday.....Drive home, no pictures.....

To sum it all up, it was a very fun, busy, educational, enlightening, tiring, testimony-building, relationship-strengthening week. And we'd just like to give a huge thanks to George and Julie Carpenter for their generosity and hospitality during the week, we definitely had a blast! Oh, and we drove through a total of 7 states, (8 if you count Utah): Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, and Colorado.
