This week is going to be busy

So first off...23 days to go! I can't believe it, but both Roland and I are really feeling ready for this baby to come. I am getting just a little sick of being pregnant. I really thought that my feet couldn't get more swollen and then this week they did. I don't even fit into sandals anymore. I totally understand what the statement "barefoot and pregnant," means now. That is seriously all I want to do. Take my shoes off and put my feet up. But, other than that, I am still feeling pretty good.
So this week is going to be crazy. Tomorrow we have a hospital tour in the evening, Tuesday I have a doctor's appointment, dinner with Gretchen and then a breastfeeding class. Wednesday should be relatively calm, but then Thursday a bunch of Roland's family comes into town. (Which I am really excited about). Friday is Anthony and Cindy's wedding and Roland's graduation. Both of which we want to go to, but we think we are only going to be able to go to the graduation and then we will go to the reception at night. Saturday we hopefully should just be able to hang out with Roland's family. But yeah, it is going to be crazy this week...crazy but good. It would really be crazy if Liam decided he wanted to come this week which really is a possibility.I am hoping not, but we will see... So I guess I will update you on how it all went at the end of the week. So I am just going to take it easy for the rest of Sunday and gear up for this wonderful week!

What we have been up to lately

So I feel like we have not blogged about what has been going on in a really long time. So here is a little snipnet of a few of the things we have been doing in the last few months.
One weekend in January (I think) we went snowshoeing in Aspen Grove. It was a little more difficult than I thought it was going to be...being pregnant you really get out of breath. It was really fun though! The last weekend in February we went down to St. George to see Parks and to go to his baby blessing. It was really fun to see Parks and hang out with the rest of the family. It also got us really excited for when little Liam comes! Woody!

Me and Parks!

Then mid-March we went to Jon Criddle's 80's birthday party. It was really fun to dress up and show off our 80's style!

Roland has been finishing up his last semester at BYU, and for work he has been in a reseach group. This is what he gets to wear to work. He could probably explain more on what he does, but basically he does surgury on mice.

The last item is that yesterday we got to see Poul run his first half marathon! It was a little stressful trying to figure out where the runners were going to be, but we figured it out and got to cheer him along the way.

Before shot (look how happy he looks)

During (this was about mile 10)

After shot (still looks happy but just a little tired) You are awesome Poul!
So those are some of the exciting things that have been happening in our lives lately. I am about 35 weeks pregnant now, so we are really getting anxious for our little boy to come. Like I said Roland is almost done with school, which is really nice, and I am on the countdown for when I am done. This school year is really flying by. I can't believe it is already 4th quarter. So anyways, I hope everyone enjoys the rest of general conference today. Hopefully there will be some more updates soon.
