Happy Fall Ya'll!!

I love doing Fall activities with my boys! Holidays are just my cup of tea and Fall brings on all of the holiday cheer, ya know? Maybe, I light cider candles every day... maybe I've already bought Christmas jammies for my boys... Maybe. It's fine. Do what makes you happy. Anyway, recently we ventured to this cute little Farm near our house and also to Thanksgiving Point for Cornbelly fun.  Hayrides, pumpkin picking, playgrounds, climbing, and animals were all to be experienced.

Happy Fall Ya'll!

A Little Bit of Paradise- Maui 2014

Joe and I decided to plan a trip for our 5 year anniversary this year.  Originally, we were thinking we'd go in February, but this little surprise pregnancy changed our plans a bit! Maui was perfect! Just warm, gorgeous and so relaxing. We did a few activities and excursions but I mostly loved just lounging, reading, relaxing, etc.  Honestly, it was paradise. Now get ready for a huge picture overload... I'll try to caption as I go.

After a long day of traveling, we were really excited to get there.
We walked along the warm beach and hung out by the pool until the sun went down.
I dunno, I just feel like you have to take at least one picture like this while you're at the beach...

Beach day!
We seriously had so many delicious drinks. 
This was the night we went to Warren and Anabelle's Magic Show.
It's like a comedy act and magic show all in one. We were pretty tired because of the time change but we were
 laughing so hard. Haha. And if you know Joe, he is easily amused so he was basically crying at multiple points from laughter. 

The start of our journey on the Road to Hana. 
This drive was insanely beautiful!
It's a little crazy with these narrow roads and twists and turns in the jungle for like 2 hours...
so I'm not sure I'd do it again haha.  Especially not pregnant! But, it really was so pretty. 

Snorkeling adventures.
I tagged along with Joe while he golfed on the Kapalua Bay Course.

Random pic on our way to the Luau.
I was kind of sick this night so I didn't really eat any of the food served at the Luau.
 I'm sure I missed out on some amazing stuff. :(
But, it was still fun and I loved the performances!
On our last day there we went to the Grand Waillea for the most amazing massages!
I definitely saw way too many naked ladies at the mineral baths....
But other than that it was heavenly.

Special thanks to my parents for watching our boys while we were gone!! (Especially my mom:)) They are the greatest Bampa and Grams ever! 

Just a really quick video I threw together of some of our adventures in Maui.

Baby #3

Surprise!! Baby #3 is baking! I definitely didn't expect to be pregnant with my third child at 24 years old, but that's just the way life goes I guess! We've been fortunate to be able to plan and get pregnant without any problem with the first two and I realize a baby at any time is such a blessing. It'll be a little crazy for awhile, but we know how to be parents and I love my babies more than anything.

I'm about 14 weeks nows. The past two months have been a bit rough.  Nausea off and on 24/7 plus exhaustion/low energy don't mix well with an active toddler and an increasingly active baby.  But, we've made it through what was hopefully the worst and I'm hoping to feel that 2nd trimester bliss any day now :) It has already gotten a little better.  I mostly just love toast and popcorn all the time and need to eat like every 2 hours. I swear I noticed a difference in my tummy at 5 weeks.  I think I show earlier and earlier with each pregnancy.  So, basically I will be massive by the end of this :/

Anyway, we're excited for this sweet spirit to join our family.  I honestly believe this baby was meant to come at this time for a reason and we continue to feel the Lord's guiding hand in our lives.

This last one might more accurately reflect their feelings on the situation ;)
