This weekend was spent outdoors. Saturday, we went to David's mom's house and swam at her pool. It is nice to have a family member with an in ground pool. David played with the kids and I layed out- I never actually got in the water, except to splash my feet around. David lathered me down with SPF 50, so I tanned only a tiny bit. Mostly, you couldn't tell I was even outside. My mom and I drove to the Promenade two weekends back to pick up a swimsuit at Motherhood. It is a tankini, with solid chocolate bottoms. I have never been a big fan of the swimsuit, so I made sure our picture was taken from the waist up. Ha, ha! I am still not showing much, so you are really not missing out on any belly shots (though my mom is dying for me to post some!) Sorry mom. : ) I have gained to date 6 pounds, and I am 16 weeks. It doesn't seem to be enough that people around me notice, but I definitely can tell. I am totally in maternity clothes now (and thankful I am not huge in this hot, hot weather we are having!!)
My great-niece- Loralei. Her father is my nephew, Adam.

Oue niece, Jessica, who is also pregnant. She is due only a few days after me! Doesn't she look great? We are excited about being due so close together.

Sunday was the day I got sunburned. David worked in the yard all day- mowing, seeding, fertilizing, planting, and putting it an underground sprinkler system on only one side of the yard. Bichon and I went in and out all day, so I never really thought about being burnt. Thirty minutes out, thirty in, thirty out, forty in, etc... It added up to an unpleasant burn. : (
David planted two blue spruce, some pompous grass, and day lillies. Nothing major as far as landscaping, but with six hours at UofA this summer, plus work, I am lucky to see him at home at all. I am excited about a new golf flag David put up for me! I am crazy about flags. I am addicted to them.
I don't have any pictures of the finished landscaping job- he buried the pipes of course and planted more, but I was inside sipping lemonade and applying aloe vera gel by that time.
Monday, Rachel asked me to run to T.J. Maxx with her. I seriously would not have gotten out of the house for anybody else with this sunburn. BUT! I love Rachel, and I do love T.J. Maxx.. so,.. out we went. She found a lot of cute stuff, and had I known what gender the baby was, I would have purchased a few decor type things, but since I don't know yet, I found a really pretty silk tapestry throw for the foot of the guest bed. We are expecting David's brother, Doug, his wife, and their three kids to come and stay over the 4th of July, so I thought it made the room sparkle a little bit.
