We had an amazing last few days. Last Thursday, we dropped off the puppies for boarding, and made our way to Utah for our baby shower. We got a bit of a late start driving, but made it to Jeff's parents' house around 11:00 pm. Em and his mom were probably too excited to sleep, since they greeted us when we got in. It was so great to see them!
After Friday's breakfast (when a small spider may or may not have crawled out of Emily's cereal bowl), Jeff and I made our way southward to pick up my mom from the SLC airport. It was so great to see her, and I can't imagine the weekend without her. We had a fun time shopping and simply enjoying the company of each other and the whole Gunnell family.
We had the shower on Saturday. The entire family worked really hard to pull everything together, and I am so grateful for their efforts and the fun event. Jeff was a great sport, and had a better time than he thought he would. I think he was expecting it to be super girly, though he quickly realized that it was a casual party just for the baby, and not necessarily for me. I only wish that some of my out-of-state friends and family could have been there, too. We got some great baby loot, so I'd like to extend a big "thank you" to everyone that came to celebrate our first baby!
Sunday came far too quickly. We left at about 5am to take my mama to the airport. It was tough to say goodbye. Every time we visit one another, it is tough to say goodbye, and get used to being apart again. The same goes for the whole family too, but especially with my mama. It was a long drive back to Seattle, but it was good to get home.
I leave you with my favorite picture taken over this weekend. We found Landon and Logan having a feast on old bread reserved for feeding the ducks. They had a full spread on the floor that included stale hamburger buns, hotdog buns, and other various bits of leftover bread. Needless to say, they weren't too hungry for dinner that evening.
