Yay, I'm so excited to have these shelves in our new closet done!!!
They're 2 feet deep and 6 feet long in each direction from the corner, providing tons more storage.

And the best part?
We can just shut the door and it's nice and clean!

And now we have a place to store everything that's currently in the baby's room.
(Yes, I'm getting anxious to have it ready!!!)

Julia's view of the Park City condo

The kids spent one night in Park City with us at the condo
and they loved every minute of it.

We let Julia take the camera and go on a "walk" to the lobby and back with Ethan.
Here is the condo from her point of view.

These next two pictures show you one thing they really enjoyed while we were there, lol.

Julia also did a little exploring in back of the condo.
She was sure that these tracks were bear tracks,
but I'm not so sure...

14th Anniversary!

This past week Derek and I celebrated our 14th anniversary.
The day of our actual anniversary (the 8th) we spent the evening painting
and getting Julia's room ready.

But this weekend we were able to get away to Park City
and have our last little break before the baby comes.

Main Street in Park City

Downtown Park City has such a fun atmosphere!
We found a yummy place for our breakfast,
and they even had menu options that I could eat!
(Low carb for the gestational diabetes.)
Callaways Morning Ray was a little hard to find,
but definitely worth the search!

Main Street in Park City

We enjoyed our free time immensely!
We did lots of shopping,
went to the movies,
went out to eat,
watched movies at the condo,
and just had tons of fun spending time together
and relaxing!

And the scenery wasn't too shabby either!

(Thanks to my sister Char for arranging our accomodations!!)

Bit by bit

I couldn't find a "before" picture of our former office,

but the walls were blue and it was a little dark for a basement room.

Here it is with a fresh new coat of paint!

(A big thanks to all of my family

who came over to help paint!!!)

These photos are a little dark, but you can see that all of Julia's furniture is now in her new room.

Ethan will sleep in here for then next few days until his room is ready.

We decided to put bunk beds in Julia's room and a full size bed in Ethan's room

so when we have guests they can sleep in Ethan's room

and Ethan can sleep in one of the bunk beds in Julia's room.

We'll see how it works out.

We have a lot of stuff that still needs to be moved, but we're getting close!


Here is Ethan's room. I still want to organize his shelves, but for now it's working out great.
