Happy 32nd :-)

I've thought recently about when my parents were in their 30's, and how it seemed like forever before I would be that age, but here I am... 32 now. Where has the time gone?! These 32 years have been full of blessings, with a bit of "life challenges" in between. I can't complain though, as God has been so good to ME!
This new year is just the beginning of new things, and to start this year, we celebrated my day by going to dinner Saturday night and then had a cookout on Sunday! It was a nice evening for a cookout, so we took advantage of eating by the pool! 

Then we headed in for some cake and gifts... 

It was a great weekend!

Baby Montgomery in the making ;-)

Anyone remember me mentioning that I found these at our door when I arrived home one afternoon late February or early March?  I was a bit puzzled in trying to figure out where they came from for awhile! When I finally figured it out, I contacted them to let them know of their mistake. They thanked me for my honesty, and I haven't heard from them since... So we have our first stock of Pamper wipes :-) :-)

It was April 8th when we found out that we would be starting down the path of parenthood :-) I didnt want to just blurt the news to Tim, but didn't have a real good idea otherwise. This was what I decided to do, well partially.. as when it came down to it, I just handed it to him instead:-/ I kind of feel bad about that now.

I scheduled my first appointment right away, and after a small misunderstanding when we showed up the wrong day, after a canceled appointment, we heard our baby's heartbeat for the first time on May 13th. What an emotional moment that was.. to realize a little one was REALLY inside and that it would be ours. I instantly felt blessed to be chosen to be this one's mommy!

We then made our announcement to our families the following week :-)

Since that time, I have received several cute items, and each one has brought a sense of excitement to me in preparing for this new phase of life. 

I have had several people ask how I'm feeling.... This has been something that's always worried me, pregnancy symptoms, and which ones I would have to deal with when the time came! I have to say that I have been very blessed to have very little to deal with. Most times during the day, I have had to remind myself that I was even pregnant. I really can't complain.. Now days, my growing abdomen is my reminder, but otherwise still feeling great :-) I'm 18 weeks today, and in one week from today, we hope to know the gender of our little one.. I have certainly been looking forward to this! 
So, an announcement will be made as soon as we decide how we are going to break the news to family first.. Yes, first :-)

Seaport Villiage & Nearby attractions

We spent a day doing several small things near and around Seaport Village!

These trees are just too cool, so we had some fun with them! 

Stopped to enjoy some Ben & Jerry's :-)

Then we headed to the Point of Point Loma to check out Cabrillo's Monument & the lighthouse!

We ended the day by going to Phil's BBQ for dinner!

More to Come..

Easter & Extras..

Easter Sunday Selfies

It was a real treat to have mom visiting over Easter this year! Just a little taste of home around the holiday really made a difference! I remember mom being SOO excited to visit, as we were to have her come! We had so many things planned, and did nearly all of them! Of course, there are plenty more things for her to see and do, but that just has to wait until next time :-) 

We took the tripod with us as we walked a short way from our apartment, but decided not to use it. Honestly, I was kind of skiddish setting up on the property and trying to get photos of ourselves, so we went the quick and easy way.. A Selfy Stick :-) I figured anything was better than nothing! Plus, dinner was in the oven and on the stove, so didn't want to be gone long!

A Day at Sea World

Here are a couple of the shows that we watched...

THIS one below has changed soooo much since last time we were there! I was actually quite disappointed.. I felt like they were all about trying to prove or get their message across that the trained whales weren't being tortured etc and all the benefits there were for having them... bla bla bla, so needless to say, I was kind of bummed after talking this show up to mom and how it was the best one they had there! Plus, it was to early in the season to have the fireworks.. and I LOVE FIREWORKS!


To my surprise, as we were passing the entrance to the Atlantis roller coaster, mom pipes up (one who HATES them & who has always refused to go on any) and says something like, I know you guys love roller coasters, and if you would like to go, I'll go with you. I was sooo taken back, as I had thought she was going to say.. If you would like to go, I'll be happy to wait for you.
I was so proud of her!! We really do enjoy riding them, even though I get pretty nervous anticipating whats to come. If I can see the whole ride and what's to come next, I can prepare myself for it, but when a part is hidden... I freak! This ride had one of those moments, and Tim caught it..


This was their Observation ride to the top! I had some fun with mom about this one too, before she realized what it actually was.. I told her, they pull you to the top and then drop you. haha!

 ...Last shot before heading out..

To Be Continued..
