Event-full times!

Last week Alisha & I headed out for one last vacation before the baby comes. At least one last major vacation. I had a youth conference in Lake Forest (Orange County), California. So we decided to go early & fly into San Francisco. We had never been there before & thought it would great.

And it was, though San Francisco is very cold & rainy. We saw the redwoods,

the Golden Gate Bridge,

Fisherman's Warf

& a whole lot more. Then we drove down to the OC area to spend the rest of our time going to the conference at Saddleback church & enjoying the southern California sun! We absolutely love southern Cal! If we can ever find a reason to move there, we just might do it! It's one of our favorite places to go on planet earth. Pretty much all our vacations are either to southern Cal or Gulf Shores. What can I say we're beach bums (see photo of us at laguna beach).

We really had an awesome week together. It was spiritually refreshing & so good just to be away with one another.

When we got home, we resumed work on the nursery. Below you can see some photos. Just remember, we're not done & these represent a work in progress. Things are coming together well. We're excited to see how it's turning out. There's still a lot to do, but it will come together in time. The fun part is getting to do it together.

The Dish & the Spoon.

Humpty Dumpty

We'll try to keep you up to date on all that's happening. Check back at the end of the week for another update. Alisha & I go back to the doc on Thursday for an ultrasound. This is the one where you would normally find out the sex of your child. And good news! We've decided to find out what we're having!!! NOT! Sorry, we still want to be surprised in August! Thanks for all your prayers for us during this journey.

This is so neat. Looks like you got to see lots of sites in CA. I hope Alisha didn't get to car or plane sick. The walls look good so far. I can't wait to see in person, when you finish.

The Nursery is so cute! Be sure to post pictures when you are done with the mural. Alisha, you are looking great...are you feeling better, too? Hope so! Love, Amber
