Oh hey.
I'm in Virginia right now.
I thought I would update. There won't be a lot of pictures because I didn't bring my USB.

I got on the plane Tuesday morning and then arrived in Virginia around 4:30 PM. D, V, and B met me at the airport. Then V's sister L picked us up in the car and we went to their apartment.
I started teaching them how to play Kingsburg and Bradshaw got really fussy so we went on a walk to a pond close by their house and threw rocks in the river and such.
Then we came home and ate dinner and put B to bed and finished Kingsburg.

Then Wednesday was my sister's 23 birthday. :)
Let's see. I woke up late and let B take a nap and we watched 2 movies and did some scrapbooking while he was napping.
D came home and we went on a picnic by the river and watched planes take off. It was funny. We were eating and we heard this loud chirping noise and thought it was a baby bird. It totally landed on my leg! And I yell, "DID A BIRD REALLY JUST LAND ON MY LEG?!" It wasn't a bird... it was some nasty bug. Ew.
Then we went back home and put Bradshaw to sleep and played more Kingsburg and watched Baby Mama :)

On Thursday, We woke up early because we had a tour of the capitol. It was at 10:40. When we got there we were informed that there was a mysterious package found in the capitol so they had shut down all the tours. I guess this package thing was sort of a distraction to let a group of AIDS activists in the Rotunda and do a protest. I guess they were all dressed in white and chained up around it. Ha. All of them, all 26 of them, got arrested. We ended up having to go at a later time.

So while we were waiting to go on the tour we went to the Gardens across the street. Then we went to Potbelly's for lunch. I enjoyed the tour it was super cool.
Then afterwards we drove to Annapolis, Maryland to do a 3D/4D ultrasound. It was SO cool. I found out that Olivia is still a girl :) Ha. I've been having dreams that she's a boy and it scared me.
We also found out that she's breech. It makes sense to me now. It's just one of her legs that were up by her face. So I could feel her kicking on my right side by my ribs and then on the lower left side. It's interesting.
Her eyes were wide open in the ultrasound. The ultrasound tech was really excited about it. She's like, "Babies eyes are never that open during the ultrasound!"
She's yawning!
She's so beautiful :)

This is her with her foot in her mouth.

We did eat some Frosty's before the ultrasound and all the walking and then resting must've woken her up.

Then later we went to the beach in Maryland. It was awesome :)
I haven't been to the beach since I was like 10 years old. I love the beach! I really want to live by the beach sometime in my life.
We ordered some pizza and then we put B to bed and played more Kingsburg.

Today me, V, and L got a pedicure. Right now we're watching Stick It and about to do some more scrapbooking things.
Tonight we're going to Olive Garden to celebrate that I have 10 more weeks. I'm 30 weeks along today.
D really wants to take us to this desert place called Rita's to buy "Happiness." And I said I've never had it... like I've never been there. And he's like, "You've never had happiness? That's sad." Ha.
We're also going to see the monuments later tonight when they're all lit up.
But I thought I would update.
I come home late Tuesday night.

Miss you all. :)


  1. I could not stop laughing about the "hata's" comment!!! (My big bro would always say "C'mon Val, don't be a hater" when he was trying to convince me to do something I didn't want to. haha.) But seriously....people didn't comment on the 3D/4D picts??? The ultrasound tech. kept remarking about how awake and cooperative she was. It was a very beautiful, emotional experience.

  2. That is awesome!! I Love the pictures for the 3d/4d! I think I would want to do that when ever I have my own kids!!!! :D LOL ;)
