maternity pics...

Mary got an awesome new bike!  We planned on doing maternity pics when I came out and of course we left that task to be done in the twenty minutes before we had to leave for the airport.  Why?  Why are we both so much the same and we leave ourselves 20 minutes??? Ahhhh!  Twenty minutes or not she still looks awesome!

san francisco....

Now that I'm finally getting caught up (somewhat) here's recap of my sweet girl's trip!  

Oh--the shopping the city and the eating!!!  We felt young and hip for a second until we realized: a)one of us is pregnant. b)one has braces (which might be confused into feeling young--but does just the opposite when you're 15 years late!) c)we're old!!!  And just a little confused on how we got this old and why we still feel 18. wierd. (d)Mary was/is always the hip one.) And lastly e)we got so dang tired!  What the??? I'm not even pregnant!
