Gender Reveal: We're having a boy!

I planned to do a whole detailed post about our gender reveal parties for you all.  Yes, we had 2 parties - one with our families and another with our friends from college and church.  There just isn't enough room in our house for all the people, so we decided to split it up.  

And I didn't get nearly as many photos as I wanted to and in fact, my fave photo (below) was kindly snapped by one of our friends.

Weekending: Mountain Vacation for the 4th

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing 4th!  We certainly did.  Both hubs and I were off work on Friday, so we headed out Thursday night after work to get up to the mountains to meet hubs' family.

It's a few hours of a drive, but not a bad one by any means and frankly, after a couple of weeks without AC, I was excited for some cooler mountain air.


We spent almost the whole day on Friday outdoors.  We went caving - a walking cave tour - my pregnant tummy doesn't quite allow me to do much climbing and/or squeezing into tight spaces.  Then we went on a short little hike to visit these beautiful falls.  I think I could have sat out here for hours.  The water was so peaceful and just wonderful to be near.  There are actually several different views you could hike to, but we let the fam hike ahead after just one to avoid over exertion.  No complaints though.
