Trip to Richmond

videoI know, I'm really behind! You see, my dear husband said he would blog this time, so I thought I had a week off, but that's ok. I'm finally home, have a few minutes and thought I'd add a few videos and thoughts from our wonderful trip to Richmond!

We had an amazing time! Traveling went as well as it possibly could with a 2 year old and while nearly 6months pregnant. Ben loved the airplanes and was convinced he was on a spaceship. Pretty cute.

We had wonderful weather. Just looking at some of this video it's hard to believe we were outside without full gear! We played outside every day! Ben constantly asked where his jacket and gloves are, and he was baffled when I said he didn't need them. But, we're back to reality in Chicago where it's been cold ever since and he's back in the routine of getting geared up every day!

Highlights:
1. Seeing everyone! Ben got a lot of Grandma and Grandpa time, Aunt Allison really made an impression, he can't stop calling everyone Aunt Allison. And all dogs are either Donnie or Abby now!

2. Surprising Grandpa Bishop with news that he will be getting a new puppy! I continue to be thinking of girl names for their dog more so than the little girl joining our family in June. My latest favorites include Sadie, Sammie, and Molly (pretty common, I know). I'll keep'em coming!

3. Going to the firehouse! Thanks to cousin Jenny, Ben (and the rest of us) got the thrill of going to the firehouse and touring all the engines, trucks, and quarters! It was better than Disney World for us right now!

4. The weather!!!! Just the weather!!! Winter blues have hit even harder having to come back to the Chicago area. Boooo..

We've been busy since coming home. Back to work. Then this past weekend my Mother took myself and my little sister to see The Merry Widow, by the Joffrey Ballet downtown Chicago. LOVED IT!!! And thanks again Mom!!! And it was nice to spend some time with the girls! They spent the night and we visited until way too late.

I'll try to put some video up now, pictures soon. Right now I'm getting ready for my Dad to come for the weekend. He's helping us with some things around the house including putting in a new kitchen floor!!! Yeah! I'm then preparing my house for the rest of my sisters (and nieces and nephews) coming next weekend to help with painting the kitchen and baby's room (maybe even the hall if we get to it). I really roped them into this one and owe them big time!

Baby girl is doing great! Continues to be very active in there! I continue to feel better in some aspects (no more headaches, and a little more energy), but then feeling it in other areas (my ankles and feet hurt so bad by the end of my work day yesterday I didn't think I'd make it home!!). She's growing like a weed!
