CALIFORNIA!!!

Well these pictures are all out of order but that is okay...

This past weekend, Nate and I were able to go down to California to go see my family one last time before we have our baby. I was lucky enough to spend a lot of time with family, as well as have a baby shower!!

Below are a few of the pictures from the trip...

I wanted pictures of Nate and I because we hardly have any!! I don't love these pictures because I look so tired and my make up had worn off for the day... However, it was good to FINALLY get some pictures of the two of us.
Below is a copy of pregnancy pictures our brother and his wife did...

Another copy pose of our brother's photoshoot...

Nate in the wild...




The sun was really in our faces... but we pretended that it didn't bother us :)

I love this picture of my mom. My step-dad, Rik, randomly put bunny ears on her head (what makes it better is that she can't do anything about it) so we decided that a picture was necessary...

We also went to a ward trunk-or-treat. This is my brother Mike and his wife Jen killing him :)Jen's face is classic.


Close girlfriends from high school at my baby shower! From left: Me, Brittany, Lizzy (the one who planned the shower), and Christina.

Me and Brittany... we have known each other from the very beginning!


I received SO MANY cute baby things from my shower. Below is a jacket that I WISH I could wear! Too bad it's made for a two-year old. After this shower, my baby will be the most stylish girl around!


My wonderful grandma and cousin.

My mom and I... bad lighting...

Finally, we went to Woodranch (the restaurant I used to work at) with my brother Mike and his wife Jen, and my dad, Brian. It was so yummy!!

All in all, it was a marvelous trip. I LOVED spending time with my family! Nate was also able to go hold out signs supporting Prop 8. I felt so blessed and loved from all the wonderful gifts I received for my baby at the shower. People really are so generous! Nate was such a tropper and drove the entire way down there and most the way back. He really is wonderful!

I do love Jen's face in that picture! I have never seen her look angry before. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. Keep your blog updated with all of your baby news!

These are great pictures. It was so fun seeing you at your shower! I'm excited to meet your new little girl sometime soon!

I especially like the picture of Nate in the leaves. That is frameable.
