My good friend, Jennifer, arrived in town on Friday to visit with the boys, give Blake and me a break and more. Carter fell in love with her instantly, even though he adored her in Texas. It was like meeting her again for the first time. The fact that she arrived with gifts, played non-stop playstation, let Carter bunk with her in the playroom, and distributed candy during most of the weekend certainly didn't hurt matters, either.
Since I'm 36 weeks along and my doctor has given me a little encouragement to do a little more, we got out each day to see a bit of the area. Saturday included a trip into Boulder for a picnic by the river.

Lots of playground time.
In need of some MAJOR photoshop here as I pose with Jack. You just don't realize how big you are until you see it on film. Unfortunately, this film adds 30 pounds, rather than the standard 10 you usually see. Or, maybe that's me adding the pounds. Either way, we're on an 18 day countdown until Lainey arrives. I'm SO ready!
It wasn't wise of me, either, to sit by cute Jen who can't take a bad picture. Love the arm lock she's got on Jack here.
A small walk into town brought us to our favorite candy store, Powell's Sweet Shoppe. Be sure to check out the link. It's like stepping back in time walking in. Jennifer and Carter pose with gummy teeth....
