Father's Day in Pictures

For Father's day this year we celebrated Scott by spending the day as a family at Disneyland.  We got to see the news Car's Land in California Adventure.  CA was so busy from everyone wanting to see the new land and new rides, we eventually went over to Disneyland where the crowds were defiantly less and the boys got to ride more rides.  Brendan got to ride his first :big" ride with daddy...Star Tours, he loved it!  Overall it was a good day, until the crowds, heat and lack of naps (and pregnancy crankiness) got the best of us and we decided it was time to head out.

Here is our Father's Day in picture:

Then & Now (June 19, 2008)

It is hard to believe that 4 years ago I was preparing for my first born.  With my due date on July 2nd (and birth a first time mom) I had no idea what to expect.  Four years ago today, I was sitting at home on Maternity leave, waiting for baby...little did I know that I would be waiting another 24 days for that baby to come!...and I was worried I wouldn't have enough time to get it all done...

Here what was happening 4 years ago:

Last Day of Work

So yesterday was my last day of work for Maternity leave. The break will be nice I hope, we don't know when the baby will come but it can be anytime now. Today, being my first day off, was spent cleaning the bedroom and doing some organizing before the baby comes. I also am trying to get ahead in my school work so that if he does decide to come early, I am prepared in that aspect.

I feel comfortable with leaving work, I tried my best to make sure that everything was organized on my desk and nothing was left hanging. I know that everything will be fine, I just didn't want to be a burden on my office with me being out. Yesterday they all brought in food to say good-bye. I am so grateful at how supportive my office is to me through the entire pregnancy.

Scott is making sure that since I am now home, I am getting plenty of rest, sleeping in, not doing anything physical at all, he wants to keep that baby inside as long as possible! I can't do anything that might induce labor at all...including walking the mall. I keep saying, the baby is going to come when he is ready. Hopefully not this weekend, I need a few more days!

35 and counting

It is hard for me to believe that I am already at this point, at the end. It feels as though it was just last week I was sitting in the bathroom holding the little stick texting my sister in complete shock. This wasn't in the plan! What was I going to do?

Here I am now, 35 weeks pregnant, still in a bit of shock, waiting.

Waiting is probably the worst part. People ask me all the time if I am ready. Yes, I still have the crib up and baby room set up from Caleb, we have the bassinet in our bedroom with the bedding washed and ready. My sister washed up our newborn clothes and they are hanging in the closet, I have bottles, blankets, burb-clothes, boppy, bouncer, and any other baby necessity you can think of. But am I ready?

No. I do not feel ready. Not sure exactly what I need to do to be ready, but I'm just not there yet.

Keys on the go

For those of you that followed my previous blog "Starting Out".  I felt as though we were no longer starting out as a family and it was time to move on to a new blog.  I feel as though our family is always going somewhere, or doing something.  So many times I have three boys standing at the front door waiting for me to finish gathering all of my stuff.  "Just grab the keys and let's go!" I hear my husband.  And so this blog seemed only fitting, welcome to the many adventures of the Keys' family on the go.
